This last year has seen a massive resergence in 70s inspired rattan furniture. A boho feel, with a relaxed vibe was seen everywhere, and is still very much a popular choice.

This year we are seeing a lot more woven furniture incorporating Japanese influences. The pale wood tones are being mixed with black for a more striking look. This can be seen on cabinets and screens, again with Japanese influences.

The fine weave we are seeing creates a lovely pattern and texture on table tops and door fronts, perfect for a statement piece. Don’t go overboard with this, as the more stripped back the better. Let the furniture do the talking, so just invest in one or two items to tie into your space.

With Spring in the air it’s time to think about outdoor living, planting and gardens. It’s great to make personal touches within your space with your own design creations on plant pots. This can allow them to match a colour theme, follow a trend, label what’s in the pot or personalise them as a gift!

We love the design idea from Homedit with its modern geometric look and metallic colours.

For a plethora of ideas head to BalconyGardenWeb or have a look on Pinterest

All you’ll need is paint and, if it’s not outdoor paint then a good fixer spray or varnish will ensure it lasts and holds up to the weather. You can get plain pots from garden centres, IKEA, or try online at Hobby Craft or Baker Ross for great prices.

These wooden frame mounts from hm.com are a great way of hanging your favourite print or poster as an alternative to a standard frame.

The two strips at top and bottom have magnets on, which clamp the picture in place. Available in 3 colours we love the simplicity of this style, which you could hang singularly on a wall or in a group.
