home: trend [ tropical greens ]

Evey summer over the last couple of years we always get an overdose of tropical prints, including plants, animals and fruit. Although this trend never really goes away throughout the year we tend to notice it more now.

This year we have seen it is less about the bright colours and clashing prints and more a subtle take on what’s gone before, with layering prints and textures in different shades of green.

Green on green action is big this year, whether it’s tableware on complimentary table linens, art and ornaments layered against a wallpaper backdrop or tiling in a bathroom with similar tone bath towels and accessories. The calming and refreshing colour of green mixed with patterns in different shades will bring an exciting and bold look to any room.

And then on top of that fill your home with indoor plants – real or faux – to get the maximum look.

Another long established brand, British Home Stores [ BHS ] which already disappeared from our high street, is now sadly also disappearing from online too.

The brand had decided to maintain an online presence with their clothing, homeware and infamous lighting, but now, after not long at all,they are pulling the plug on that too.

Just another all to familiar sign of the British retail industry losing pace and saying goodbye to another long standing retailer.

Head over to their website now and explore their closing down sale. It’s a good time to get some great bargain homewares at up to 50% off.

home: trend [ geometrics ]

We have seen this trend before and geometric patterns are always going to appeal, but this time the focus turns away from soft furnishings like cushions and rugs and more about wallpapers, tiles and art.

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to tiles and whether it’s for the bathroom, kitchen or floor we can create bold patterns and experiment with colour. Create a focal point with a vinyl floor in a kitchen, leaving the walls a plain colour or maybe it’s a patterned wallpaper that takes your fancy, to act as a statement backdrop to the rest of the room.

A great way to introduce pattern into a room is with art. Choose a select few pieces to bring interest to a wall. Whatever you do be brave and embrace geometrics.

Guide:

Top row – wallpaper from cole-and-son.com, floor vinyl from atrafloor.com [ £59 ], print from desenio.co.uk [ from £6.95 ]

Middle row – floor vinyl from atrafloor.com [ £59 ], tiles from claybrookstudio.co.uk [ £6.29 per sheet ], floor tiles from claybrookstudio.co.uk [ £1.56 each ]
