home: trend [ embellished ]
Its time to embrace embellishments with this gorgeous 2018 trend; and shop for anything with tassels, tufting, fringes and feathers.
The bohemian influences are strong for this look, layering, natural colours, textures upon textures, but it can also work with a clean, minimal look – using white homewares but with embellishments for texture, ensuring everything is in natural creams and whites.
Shops across the high street have a big range to create this look. It’s also worth having a search around vintage markets, eBay and searching for international sellers.

home: found this [ pom pom blanket ]
Explore Hammam + Home for bed, bath and home linens, fabrics and soft furnishings. There’s a beautiful range of towels and throws that can be used all over the home, in the garden, by the pool and on holiday.
Our favourite find is the Dill Stripe Pom Pom Blanket with its colour splash of mustard, but there’s lots in the range including monochrome patterned, plain and grey stripe.
Our Dill Stripe Pom Pom Blanket is beautifully handcrafted in Morocco using traditional hand-weaving techniques. Made in 100% premium quality cotton for a lightweight yet luxurious feel, and finished with large mustard yellow pom pom tassels for that ultimate boho artisan feel. A statement addition to a bedroom, sofa or floor; this piece is truly Moroccan craftsmanship at its finest and will stand the test of time.
home: found this [ blankets ]
We love the nomad trend and it translates so well into blankets, throws, bedding, curtains, cushions and more so well.
We discovered this great brand Bohzaar and think they have a great range of soft furnishings in nomad patterns in a great variety of colours to suit any interior.
The blankets are beautiful and at only £59 are a steal for such a large size
