home: trend [ modern folk ]

Taking inspiration from traditional homeware from the past couple of centuries, and objects and colourful patterns of the past, but with a modern twist, this trend can be a bold or subtle look depending on the colours chosen.

Bringing together your collated items from travels and things that were inherited, sitting alongside new treasured pieces. Bold patterns, rich colours and discovery of your own identity in the homeware and furniture that are styled in a room. With a cultural feel from travelling, this look can be continually added to with pieces that have a story or a personal meaning.

We love this diy project, and it’s so adaptable to your style and room. This woven lamp is simply made from two metal lamp shade frames and some cotton thread in various colours.

Attach the two frames together and then you can start getting creative weaving the thread. It’s an intricate process but we’ll worth it.

Amongst all the gifts, goodies and other ‘lovely stuff’, there’s an abundance of great homeware pieces in the That Lovely Stuff online store. The store curates a variety of home accessories from a wonderful selection of creative mums – all designing and creating great products.

They say;

Did you ever think to yourself “I wish I had all of That Lovely Stuff”? 

We did and then we got to thinking and realised how many talented friends we had, and the further we looked, we realised that friends of our friends were amazing too.  With just those thoughts That Lovely Stuff was born.  All of our products are made by people that we know or people that have been recommended to us and all of the items on the site have been tried and tested by the team here.  Only the best will get on the site and we hope that you love it.

It gives us great pleasure to see all of our “mumpreneurs” making a living whilst bringing up their children.  It really is the best feeling sending orders out to these lovely ladies and we hope you love their goodies as much as we do.
