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.

The styling, the curves, the nod to mid century – the incredible Dexter Copper Sputnik Ceiling Pendant £143.20 (reduced in the sale from £179.00) from Marks & Spencer is a must buy. It’s a perfect designer-look retro light fitting to make a statement in any room.

home: featured [ Kuishi ]
Such a great concept, such well curated products and with a real motivational ethos behind the brand to make you want to shop their products.
The environmentally friendly goods, make you think about your way of life, the products you do and don’t need, and allow you to dip your toes into a more sustainable way of living, and a simpler everyday life.
Explore the departments of soft furnishings, and storage for kitchen or bathroom plus some gorgeous vintage finds too and even be able to choose colours for the products you select.
Kuishi (ku-we-she) meaning ‘Live‘ in Swahili.
Kuishi is a home and lifestyle brand based in Cornwall. Our ethos is to embrace living a simpler life with products that bring joy to the home as well as showing consideration for the environment.
Kuishi was born out of a personal need to change the way I live my life. This did not mean I had to stop having nice things, cutting back on the things that make me happy or making massive changes to my lifestyle. It was about making simple choices about the small things that make me feel good, by reducing the impact my spending habits have on the environment and people.
I do this by providing simple ideas and solutions that can help make a difference to our environment through change. Whether it’s reducing the amount of plastic items we purchase or buy items made from sustainable resources that reduce soil erosion and don’t harm the environment.
I just happen to provide beautiful products that will help you not only make a small difference to the environment but will improve the look and feel of your home and your lifestyle.

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.

home: featured [ Minus Tio ]
A little bit of Scandinavian perfection in from lovely Swedish brand Minus Tio. Having featured their coat rack last week we felt this store needed to be shouted about.
Their legacy and basis for all their designs are summed up with a perfect collation of words… ‘Sweden in the 80’s – Dark winters, cross county skiing, Sigurd Lewerentz, Alvar Aalto. Pine, rocky islands and concrete, Saab and Nintendo. This is often where we start our projects.’
With a talented team of designers they have exquisite design, using sustainable materials and their range includes chairs, tables and accessories; furniture for both the home or commercial use.
Minus tio is all about the love of furniture. Our collection is unique, contemporary and locally produced. We design, we manufacture and we sell.
