home: trend [ denim blue ]
Not so long ago we talked about using blue in the home, and going into Autumn we are still talking about it.
This time the focus is on denim blue and much paler, washout examples.
This can be found on a lot of ceramics and furniture, with blue becoming more popular in glassware too as an alternative to smoked grey or Amber, which we have seen a lot of in recent years.
Be Bold with a blue sofa or armchair. or tone it down by just using some cushions to accessorise.
A bright and airy space lends itself to denim blue, but if your room is darker then go for a more rich royal or navy blue.

home: event [ vintage plate up cycling ]
A date for the diary if you want to give a new lease of life to old crockery. Get creative at these up cycling workshops at Heals. Book in for one of the two available September dates via Eventbrite
Give life to your vintage china in our upcycling class at Heals. First choose a pre-loved plate or teacup from The Indytute’s very special vintage china collection. Each piece has been rooted out by the Indytute china scout, who has scoured garage sales, antique stalls and junk shops to select the ideal pieces to upcycle. The idea of this workshop is to give you plate a new lease of life and turn it into a work of art you might spot in Harvey Nics. These plates make great presents and they also make a shelf very happy
