home: trend [ nature calls ]

Nature calls; feel the call of the wild, getting back to nature, bringing the outdoors in but you don’t have to step outside.

Embrace the bold trend of nature and botanical inspired patterns, prints, illustrations and designs in homewares.

A trend that can be layered up to great a bold effect but also gently introduced with a few nature inspired homewares or a single wall of wallpaper.

Now that the hot weather is well an truly behind us, it’s time to embrace the winter months and start creating cosy homes that you can’t wait to get back too.

As often happens around now, we start to turn our thoughts to soft furnishings like throws and cushions. Stores are full of textures like faux fur rugs, knitted blankets and soft pile cushion covers.

The colour pallette is subtle with muted tones of nature, including stone, browns, camel and grey.

We discovered the amazing printing projects on Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen, when browsing the Remodelista blog – and fell in love.

So creative and such simple printing ideas that are so very effective in creating beautiful modern print led patterns.

Create your own fabrics from her tutorials to in turn, make into table cloths, cushions, napkins, or even curtains – the ideas are endless.

Bring the warmth and comfort of one of the colours of the year, to your home – terracotta.

It’s last rise in popularity was during the 1990s and there was possibly a fair few terracotta walls on our screens in Changing Rooms but now its had a modern relaunch and using tones of it across a room from walls to furniture to small homewares can look incredibly effective.

Using the colour as a palette across an interior will bring warmth to the room.

State your thoughts through your homeware with the power of words on your homewares.

Choose special words or phrases and pop them around the home to highlight important statements about you and your beliefs.

Slogans pop onto so many homewares; vases, prints, ceramics, cushions, tea towels or even just as moulded words in wood, plastic or metal to put on a mantle piece or shelf.
