home: trend [ woven textures ]
If you are accessorizing your rooms this Summer, be sure to feature something woven. Its all about the texture and detail.
Consider potted plants in woven baskets and bags, heavy woven cushion covers [ think macrame ] and jute rugs. Adding these pieces into a room will bring an artisan / handmade feel and soften a space.
If you want to make more of a statement choose a woven light fitting [ There are some stunning picks online – try grahamandgreen.co.uk & rockettstgeorge.co.uk ]. Woven chairs are big this season as well, like bold rattan furniture but focusing on a smaller weave.

A 3 x ledge stand [ £25 ], a 5 x pot ladder stand [ £30 ] and a split level table stand [ £40 ], all made of bamboo with painted steel.

home: nice price [ tableware ]
Following on from the ‘colour therapy‘ trend featured last week, we continue to fall in love with more colour.

Set of 4 bamboo tumblers, set of 4 bamboo bowls or set of 4 bamboo plates are all now only £4.
As well as dining the sale includes accessories, furniture and planters. So don’t hang about, grab something now.

home: trend [ Spring Living ]
It’s that time of year when the outdoors starts to come into full colour, and our homes should be no exception.
Spring Living brings a fresh and uplifting feel to a home, with the emphasis on colour – bright colour!
Vivid tones of blue, yellow, red and green clash with each other, paired with digital floral patterns.
Give your room a vibrant look with a statement sofa in lemon yellow, lay a multi-coloured printed rug or arrange a selection of glass bottles and vases in varying colours to hint at this trend. Go crazy or keep it subtle, it’s up to you.
Furniture should be sleek and simple, either in one bright colour or in light tones of wood like bamboo or white melamine, adding pops of colour through accessories.
