Our latest crush is on the Edwin sofa bed, with its classic vintage design and simple fold-down backrest. Available in three colours this sofa is certainly a winner for those who want a cool daytime sofa, but need a bed for occasional guests staying over.

home: trend [ herringbone ]
The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.

home: made [ head boards ]
If you’re looking for a new creative project and want something unique for your bedroom then try a unique idea for the head board.
Hunting across the internet we found four great ideas for making your own head board.
We love the idea of using open books together – making the perfect bedtime reading spot. Create a beautiful tactile design with tied ribbons in a soft hue strung across above the bed. An easy but effective idea is to create a padded head board* using just squares of wood, squares of foam, squares of your chosen fabric and a staple gun! And lastly stencilling or printing a design directly in the place of a headboard is effective as well as being easy to change when you think of a different idea or want to change the look if your bedroom.
