Following with the theme of last week’s trend post – chintz, we love these floral cushion covers from H&M Home.

The highly decorative print has so much detail, and we would mix with other patterned cushions for a maximalist look.

At only £8.99 for the cover it’s a great buy, and the perfect excuse to get two!!

By definition ‘chintz’ is quite a broad term to describe a certain style of multi-floral, ‘twee’ or rather english country cottage-ish homewares and furnishings, but it can be many things to many people.

chintz
/tʃɪn(t)s/
noun
  1. printed multicoloured cotton fabric with a glazed finish, used for curtains and upholstery.
  2. “floral chintz curtains”

….the grandparents overly floral sitting room with pot pourri and tasseled tie backs on curtains, dated china figurines and doilies on side tables, pinks and pastels and illustrated florals on every surface and what people often presume is behind every door to a thatch cottage and of course the decor to many a seaside B&B from the eighties.

Fast forward to modern day and there’s a surge in popularity for the chintz look with a subtle modern approach.

Many a crafty blogger or instagrammer is embracing the look and it’s encouraging a great push for upcycling, recycling and sourcing second hand pieces for the home – better for your bank account and better for the environment.

Layer up florals on fresh light painted backdrops. Use accessories in marble, metallics and ceramic. Cluster vases and ornaments and also play with clashing pattern sizes on cushions, furniture and curtains.
