home: trend [ Luxe Living ]
We have seen a lot of this style before, but the fact is, brands still love it, and we still love it. Leading the way is velvet, we are seeing it everywhere, on furniture, lighting and soft furnishings.
Velvet is the simplist way to get a luxurious feel in your home, whether it’s a statement chair or a few cushions on a sofa. Get extra glam with accessories like gold framed mirrors and smoked glass table tops.
Key colours for this trend are ochre and pink, with accents of brass and gold. This is what we are seeing a lot of but other colours appearing for Autumn are deep blue and burgandy.
With a heavy art deco influence this trend explores interesting shapes and patterns. For example round table tops with square frames, painted detail on cabinets and angular mirrors with interesting shapes. Luxe Living is about pushing the look that little bit further than before, be brave with it and own it.

home: found this [ pendant light ]
We spend a lot of time looking through websites and searching for new items to share, and today we feature a little gem from made.com. This marble pendant light is super cute and perfect for a kitchen or dining room.
The simple design looks great and comes in a choice of three colours. It would also work as a cluster rather than individual pendants.
We love it!

home: trend [ pretty pendants ]
In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.
If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.
It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.
We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.

home: favourite thing [ chair ]
This beautiful, design-classic brass wire chair £325 from Rose & Grey is incredible.
An amazing investment as a set round a dining table or use a single as a office chair to make a study extra stylish.
We’d love it against an interior using dark navy or green walls with marble surfaces and some dashes of blush pink in accessories. It would also work well with an industrial trend inspired interior.
Can be used with a sheep skin cushion (sold separately) as shown or other seating pad.
