You can always be sure to find great homeware in Oliver Bonas. Their trend lead pieces with their trademark style and colour pallete will always appeal.
Our pick from them is the Alba lighting collection. This sleek angular design with its narrow stem and gold accents will look great in any space. Choose from a wall light [ £70 ], table lamp [ £95 ] and floor lamp [ £175 ].
There is also 20% off the current price of the Alba collection, so even more a reason to invest.
In between the love for white minimal and Scandinavian pops of colour, the strong trend for dark tones within the kitchen is a beautiful stylish style direction to head in.
Choosing between dark cabinets, counters, wall tiling, floor covering or all of the above creates a deep rich interior – a modern look for a home.
Bringing together a lot of dark tones (greys and blacks) is a bold move but it pays off. Although high lighting with colour or white is also a great look. Intersperse dark cabinets with white tiling or use a paler paint or flooring to soften the darkness.
For accessories, using other on-trend colours of the moment including metallics, blushes and pastels or light greys will really add to the look.
Across the high street big brands and smaller independent brands, seek out well chosen kitchenalia, ceramics, equipment and utensils to compliment the look.

We love this pendant light from Woud, available at nest.co.uk. This black metal light is simple in design but creates interest with the cut-out allowing light to shine through. Painted inside with a brass colour this pendant will give out a warming glow, perfect for a living room or kitchen.
Don’t be misled that a dark coloured kitchen may come across as gloomy and over powering.
We love the new love of black used in the home and kitchens can look so warm but stylish in this misunderstood colour.
Best used in shades slightly off from jet black on walls and tiles – and a good matt finish.
Strengthen the look by also using black kitchen doors and even worktops too. To compliment and add a break in the black, you could also use walnut tone worktops and split the colour choice of doors, instead of them all being black, drop in another colour tone – white, blush or grey.
Add accessories in copper and metallics. A vintage copper tap would be a great feature and if using open shelves give them great bronze wall brackets. Marble also works beautifully in this colour interior, great for a worktop on a kitchen island and splash back, or in smaller touches including lighting, crockery and kitchenalia.
