Its time to embrace embellishments with this gorgeous 2018 trend; and shop for anything with tassels, tufting, fringes and feathers.

The bohemian influences are strong for this look, layering, natural colours, textures upon textures, but it can also work with a clean, minimal look – using white homewares but with embellishments for texture, ensuring everything is in natural creams and whites.

Shops across the high street have a big range to create this look. It’s also worth having a search around vintage markets, eBay and searching for international sellers.

home: trend [ peach ]

2018 sees peach as the new colour to love. Peach is the ‘new’ blush – becoming a colour favoured as a great highlight in dark grey or black, or minimal white interiors.

It’s great as a highlight, but create a beautiful look with blending shades of the hue across a room, keep it minimal with no pattern but let the colour do the talking.

They say ;

Really Well Made offers the very finest design-led contemporary furniture and accessories with a Scandinavian influence. We established in 2012 because we felt there were many retailers in the UK representing poorly conceived design products. We envisaged a collection of items that simply work well and transcend passing fashions. With that in mind we constantly search for design products which express a strong, timeless & minimalist aesthetic that will stand the test of time.
