home: favourite thing [ chair ]
This beautiful, design-classic brass wire chair £325 from Rose & Grey is incredible.
An amazing investment as a set round a dining table or use a single as a office chair to make a study extra stylish.
We’d love it against an interior using dark navy or green walls with marble surfaces and some dashes of blush pink in accessories. It would also work well with an industrial trend inspired interior.
Can be used with a sheep skin cushion (sold separately) as shown or other seating pad.
home: found this [ IKEA x B. Akerlund ]
IKEA has always been a company to push design ideas and bring fun into our homes. A new collection designed with fashion stylist Bea Akerlund may just be their boldest yet, where a heavy gothic vibe meets Alice in Wonderland.
Omedelbar is a limited edition collection launching in March and is expected to be a hit. The collection consists of vases, accessories, furniture and soft furnishings in bold black, red and gold.
Look out for top hat and boot vases, a crown bowl, lip shaped cushion and a giant pocket watch wall clock.
We can’t wait to see it in the flesh.

home: trend [ traveller ]
Influences from around the world, travels to exotic places, exploring far and wide – bring them all into home styling for the ‘traveller’ trend. Mixing block printed patterns with woven textures, baskets and ornaments that could have been picked up from the little streets of Marrakesh or the markets of Delhi, unique pieces that embrace another culture or way of life – all come together to create a rich interior.
Colours are rich and vibrant. Hand dyed fabrics and hand woven accessories sit on warm tone wood furniture like walnut or mango.

home: trend [ bold clashing ]
This year if you want to be bold then embrace the trend of clashing colours, patterns, textiles… it’s all about being brave with mixing sizes of pattern, tones of colour and creating a powerful, eclectic feel.
There is a certain compatibility but it feels very ‘carefully’ thrown together. Keep colours rich and break up the pattern with plain bold and bright pieces of furniture, but mix geometric patterned curtains with floral wall paper or mix a striped throw over a intricate print sofa.
