home: trend [ modern folk ]

Taking inspiration from traditional homeware from the past couple of centuries, and objects and colourful patterns of the past, but with a modern twist, this trend can be a bold or subtle look depending on the colours chosen.

Bringing together your collated items from travels and things that were inherited, sitting alongside new treasured pieces. Bold patterns, rich colours and discovery of your own identity in the homeware and furniture that are styled in a room. With a cultural feel from travelling, this look can be continually added to with pieces that have a story or a personal meaning.

Plants, plants, plants; the urban gardener is still as popular as ever.

Bring the outdoors in with leaf ceramics – add a dash of retro, and you get this great plate from HM. There’s a definite vintage inspiration.

It would look great on a dinner party table or use for nicknacks on a dressing table.

home: trend [ pretty pendants ]

In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.

If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.

It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.

We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.
