If you haven’t yet got your carve-on for tonight’s Halloween festivities then we’ve found some great inspiration for you to get creatively inspired.

Even an idea of not having to even pick up a knife – use a sharpie to draw on, use cut out paper to decorate or other mediums like paint, beads or washi tape.

See below for a great way to cut shapes with a knife and to also allow you to have elaborate cut outs.

We love the Berlin Love Seat. It comes in a great range of colours and would be a great addition to a lounge

They say;

Falling over yourself to discover beautiful design? You’d better take a seat. A love seat. 

We were so struck by the Berlin when it arrived. In fact, we’re still speechless (well, almost). And this is a larger version of the bestselling armchair – so even more space for tired feet and a stack of treats. Those clean lines, that tufting on the back‚ this is a Mid-Century marvel on legs – oak ones.

By definition;
A kilim (Azerbaijani: Kilim کیلیم, Turkish: Kilim, Turkmen: Kilim, Persian: گلیم‎ gelīm) is a flat tapestry-woven carpet or rug traditionally produced in countries of the former Persian Empire, Iran, Azerbaijan, the Balkans and the Turkic countries of Central Asia.

And they grace many a floor because their patterns, designs and colours are so adaptable to different interiors.

They are often very affordable compared to other types of rug so it’s in everyone’s reach to have beautiful statement rugs.

Newer styles have a modern take, a lot more geometric patterns, many bolder block colour layouts, more minimal designs; yet still the traditional patterned styles are still exceedingly popular and can be found across the highstreet and online.
