home: trend [ soft botanicals ]
Gentle soft palette, bringing the outdoors in and layering botanical patterns but breaking up with stretches of plain pale colours to stop it becoming too busy.
Use light mustards, greens, mauves and white together with botanical pale prints.
This look is calming and beautiful for a bedroom or lounge.
Add to this look with mango wood, rattan or white painted wood furniture. It’s a great idea to search eBay or furniture charity shops for pieces to suit the look, but Urban Outfitters, La Redoute and Maison Du Monde all have vintage style rattan and wood options.
Available across the high street and quite a timeless trend.
home: made [ wall art ]
We love having wall art in our homes, creating focal points and bringing colour and pattern into a room.
If you are feeling creative and want to save a few pounds then why not try making your own.
Burkatron.com has a fab tutorial showing you how to do just that, using a handful of items. Make your modern art as simple or complex as you like, and use the colours you love.
Head to burkatron.com for all the details.
home: featured [ Winter’s Moon ]
Launched online in 2009, Winter’s Moon is a curated collection of colourful vintage, modern and handmade homeware. Based in Chichester founder Julia Grant has created a glorious online store with lighting, furniture, accessories and prints.
Everything has vivid colour and pattern and we particularly love the floral design found on their lampshades and cushions.
‘Colour and pattern just make us happy, and this is reflected in our collection which changes often, with many items designed in-house and hand made here in the UK just for Winter’s Moon‘
If you are in Chichester be sure to pop by the studio or head to wintersmoon.co.uk
home: trend [ Navajo ]
Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.
The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.
