home: trend [ decorative plates ]
For creating a beautiful unique dining table or alternatively to be hung as art on the walls. There’s a huge array of decorative plates to choose from – patterns, styles, colours, designs, and illustrations galore.
This can create such a special look for dining. Layer up plates of design and colour to compliment napkins and clothes to create a table that almost tells a story.
For a wall display, go eclectic with a clash of patterns and designs. Or for a more minimal look mix the odd detailed design or illustration with plain colours and block patterns – this in all monochrome would be a perfect look.

home: trend [ vintage inspired lighting ]
Lighting is one of the most important parts of any room, whether you like you design subtle or full on.
This year we are seeing an increased popularity of antique inspired lights, including decorative chandeliers and wall sconces. The great thing about what we are seeing with reproduction lights is that the prices are a lot cheaper than if you were sourcing an original.
Make a statement with a decorative chandelier, fringing and glass. There are so many options to choose from, so be brave and go bold.
