Over the last few months we have noticed an increased selection of linen items online and in stores. Particularly bedding where every brand is offering a soft washed linen duvet set or cushion cover.

Linen gives a really soft feel against the skin and is easy to care for, with little worry about ironing – let it be creased!

Soft tones are always a winner, including pinks, greys and creams. Create a neutral pallete mixing tones and layers to give your bed the most welcoming feel.

We love their rustic range, especially this incredible bed spread with its earthy tones, textured finish and woven design – well suited to many of the current organic ‘traveller’ and ‘boho’ homeware trends. Pair with linen sheets and duvet cover, with natural wood and brass accents in accessories.

With every animal print you can imagine being worked into fashion design, across the high street, it was inevitable that it would also feature strongly in homeware design too.

We headed Zara Home and discovered the brand who has sell out animal pieces in their clothing collections, also has some key pieces in homeware using patterns inspired by zebras, leopards and snakes.

The bathroom, bedroom and lounge are all catered for.

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.
