home: trend [ drinks trolleys ]
Now here’s a piece of furniture which has risen and fallen throughout the decades with popularity but is having a definite resurgence. Now it is looked at with far more versatility and the options for what it can be used for far greater. Adorned with gorgeous glassware and liquor bottles is the obvious use, but we see them in dinning rooms with tableware, in bedrooms with toiletries and make up, in home offices and even playrooms!
Across the retail market there are so many options in materials and styles used for making, there’s something to suit every current trend – marble, metallics, wood, industrial, linear, gold, black, terrazzo, mosaic and Art Deco ! So there is something to work in any home interior.

home: favourite thing [ armchair ]
IKEA is a great go-to store to find furniture, especially if you are on a budget. The Scandi brand knows good design and of course it keeps us coming back.
We spotted this cute armchair in store and think it’s prefect for an additional seat in a living room or bedroom. It’s compact and simple shape means it’s great for small rooms, and the padded quilted sides brings some interest to the design.
EKERO armchair [ £135 ]

home: trend [ winter florals ]
Deeper colour palette, rich tones and the flora abundant in winter, brings all the warmth to an interior for winter.
Using reds, purples and oranges, various sizing of floral patterns and dark woods, this winter floral trend combines a love of maximalism and floral interiors.
Break up the mix of pattern with dark plain walls or plain seating fabrics. Use dark greens, charcoals or reds in wall paint with burnt oranges, rich purple or bark for curtains and throws.
