With concrete still such a strong trend, it’s great to be able to make a DIY piece of concrete homeware.

We love this DIY from Design Mom which shows you simply how to create beautiful concrete candle holders.

Simple, effective and wonderful to make as gifts!

Everyone should have a nice cabinet to show of their favourite things, and IKEA have just made this a whole lot more affordable.

We love the BRIMNES range with it’s good looks and size, and you can play around with solid doors or glass fronts. Put them in a row against a wall creating a long shelf.

Available in black or white.

This gorgeous bamboo coffee table has been spotted from a couple of the top online high street interiors stores but we love a good price and currently La Redoute have a huge sale on and it’s a good time to invest in this piece of furniture, from La Redoute, for your lounge, conservatory or other seating area.

They say;
Join Annie Sloan for this workshop where she will provide an introduction to Chalk Paint®, colour theory, and the history of Charleston Farmhouse. 
Annie Sloan is delighted to announce two very exclusive workshops, which she will be hosting at the iconic Heal’s building on Tottenham Court Road. These workshops will provide an introduction to Chalk Paint®, to colour theory, and to the history of Charleston Farmhouse. 

Annie will be sharing her infectious passion for Interior Design, for Chalk Paint® and for colour – as well as demonstrating the various techniques and styles which can so easily be achieved with her products. Workshop attendees will be using Annie’s brand-new, limited-edition Annie Sloan with Charleston Chalk Paint® colours to transform a wooden keepsake box, and so there will be a focus on the history of Interior Design and Decorative Arts which so influenced Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, et al. Expect to be informed, inspired and amused. Each attendee will take home their painted keepsake box, all the ingredients to complete another painted furniture transformation at home, and a newfound supply of creative confidence!

With inspiration from yesterday’s trend we spotted these gorgeous scalloped velvet armchairs from made.com.

This chair is very well priced and velvet is sticking around as fabric of choice. It has a real sumptuous luxe feel, and available in three colours.

home: trend [ scales and scallops ]

We head into the deep blue sea for this current trend. Seeking inspiration from the curved beauty of natural scale patterns and scallop shell edges; homeware, furniture and fabrics embrace the design and use to create a softer look on wooden furniture, a pretty look for edges of mirrors or frames, a calming look with the colours and designs and a pleasing pattern for soft furnishings.

Mostly found in blue and green sea tones, natural beiges as well as creams and whites. It’s classier elegant sea side trend, more polished and grown up.

For small ideas, look for throws and cushions for the lounge or bedspreads in the bedroom. But these patterns to creep everywhere from vases, plates and tea sets to lighting, rugs and tiling.

If you loved herringbone for tiling, no doubt you’ll love scales too.
