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.

home: found this [ Habitat X Shrimps ]
Everybody has been talking about this new collaboration and it’s finally here. It’s been a while since Habitat has joined forces with a fashion label, but the result is something fresh and fun.
Shimps signature pallette of reds and pinks form the base of this collection, with touches of gold and blue. Playful hand drawn motifs and patterns adorn cushions, rugs and bedding.
Hannah Weiland’s first fashion-meets-interiors collection is finally here. Delving into the archives of her cult London fashion label, Shrimps, she’s translated her iconic designs into a series of must-have textiles and artwork for the home. Fantastical creatures roam. A crowd of faces gather. Venetian jesters carnival until dawn. Yes, it really is as crazy, and amazing, as it sounds.

home: featured [ BHS ]
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: favourite thing [ bedding ]
When you try and find that perfect colour bedding that you’ve imagined in your head, that matches your walls or will compliment your interiors but just can’t find it; that slightly off white, that perfect pink, that earthy rust tone or even a good neutral flesh tone – head to Midnatt and we are sure you’ll fall in love with every shade.

They say ;
Midnatt (or Midnight) is a newly established Swedish brand that makes bedding for children and adults in crisp, organic cotton. A washed-out favorite shirt and a country-side duvet cover that was added for several generations was the starting shot for Midnight’s first collection.
Our ambition is to always give your bed a contemporary look where colors and patterns can be combined just the way you want. Colored underlays and pillowcases sold separately make it easy for you to complete and update the bed with what you already have.
Our stew-washed finish gives the sheets a beautiful structure with preserved softness and the cotton’s ecological is for us an all natural starting point.

home: trend [ watercolour ]
Take a romantic journey with print and patterns this Summer when watercolours take centre stage. Look out for bed linen, rugs, soft furnishings and art prints in gorgeous blended colours.
Structured and modern art is replaced by the relaxing fluidity of watercolour. Mix in framed prints to a picture wall to update a room, or add a rug to a living room to bring a subtle statement.
This trend is great for everyone, go bold with vibrant colours of red, blues, yellows and greens. Keep it more muted with soft tones; a popular choice now is blue and green with everything in between. And even if you are a monochrome fan, you can still have a bit of watercolour in your home.
