We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.

Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.

Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.

Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.

No home can have too many blankets – for their practical warming use or for aesthetic reasons they are always useful. Change the look or colour scheme of a room by throwing over a chair or sofa, add texture and pattern to a bed styling, bring soft furnishing outside and use with garden furniture or thrown over the grass and kick back – either way having a few alternative blankets in store to mix and match or chop and change is handy. 

We love the bohemian feel of the High Vibes blanket from Urban Outfitters and it’s only £35. Perfectly on trend and see you through to Autumn/winter home styling too.
