home: nice price [ arm chair ]
Not just for me well priced kitchen cupboard essentials, we all know everybody has a soft spot for the Aldi middle aisle – and their great homeware and furniture that often pop up but have you ever looked online?
Really great value pieces are often online exclusives. Head to the Aldi website now and see what’s on the latest drop.
This olive green velvet effect fabric seat on a metal frame armchair with its modern midcentury silhouette is just a perfect new addition to a lounge, bedroom or anywhere that needs a little extra seating.
home: found this [ rug ]
That fresh look and feel that bringing green into an interior is uplifting and invigorating. Green is a strong colour trend now with dark greens filling the shelves of homewares, and also paint colours, wallpapers and soft furnishings.
This beautiful green patterned Bokhara rug in the sale at Fy! would be a great way to bring a huge splash of green to a room without any solid commitment. Rugs are a great method to bring colour but handy to swap around the home in different rooms to keep updating looks.
home: favourite thing [ pendant light ]
If you want a statement light that will turn heads then look no further than the Tage Pendant from Nordic Nest.
Available in five shades we love this green, bringing a retro feel to your space.
Perfect for hanging over a dining table, the nine globes on this pendant give directional light all around.
[ £282 ]
home: found this [ floor lamp ]
This gorgeous floor lamp from oliverbonas.com is an ideal piece for a bedroom or living room, and we love it. The mix of wood and metal is just right and gives a slight nod to mid-century design.
You can adjust the lamp shades for a more direct light. At the moment it is only available in green, but we are hoping more tones will become available.
If not, this green will do just fine!

home: trend [ tranquil dawn ]
With a new year brings new trends and new colours to get excited about, and this January sees the launch of Dulux colour of the year – Tranquil Dawn. A shade of green, that is close to a moss green and is a extremely calming colour. It is also very adaptable and can be used alongside pinks, stones, blues and earthy shades.
‘A colour inspired by the morning sky, to help give homes the human touch’
Similar shades of green are being seen in accessories and furniture. You may not want to necessarily layer green on green, but use this as an accent to create your space.We love the combination of pink & green, especially if you’re using it on a wall. Pink tableware and ceramics can also compliment a green wall and then add terracotta’s, yellows and blues to build up a gorgeous pallette.

home: trend [ neo mint ]
Jumping on the colourful back of ‘it’ colour millennial pink, we have a new shade in town for 2020 – neo mint.
Not a shade many will put as first choice for a room colour or furniture fabric, but bear with us. This bright, mint colour is described as ‘an oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature’.
It’s a calming colour that will work well with our hectic lives and give us positive vibes.
We are starting to see it online in accessories and wallpapers, as well as chairs and some larger pieces like sofas. Of course we wouldn’t imagine anyone would go mint throughout a whole room, but we suggest adding accents alongside paler shades.
Neo Mint may not be for all, but keep an eye out as you may become to love it!

With H&M Home going from strength to strength, and another stand alone store just opened on Regent St, London, we can see why there is such a buzz at the moment. Their product choice is on trend and has appeal to everyone with its simple design and Scandinavian influences.
