home: found this [ floor lamp ]
Search the sales and find some excellent pieces that are investment pieces but with a more enticing price tag.
This beautiful Ohio lamp from Made.com would make a statement in any interior and is now just £89 (was £149).
In muted grey and brass, it’s minimal look isn’t fussy or showy but looks like a lamp that would have a far higher price tag.
Slip into a monochrome or natural trend interior to introduce a lovely soft lighting to a room.
home: trend [ natural finishes ]
A big trend we are seeing this year and in particular this Summer, is natural finishes.
This stripped back look can be seen on tables, chairs, lighting & mirrors. Of course you probably don’t want to deck out your whole room in eveything pale wood, but just a few of these pieces will mix well together.
If you like a neutral colour pallete or earthy tones are your thing, this is where you can have the most fun. In a dining room a natural finished wooden dining table and chairs can look amazing against a dark green wall or black kitchen cabinets.
In a living room a wooden lampshade can be a lovely addition. The light is often softened and it will certainly be a focal point.
If you choose items that are also untreated then you have the option of painting them at a later date. There are so many great colour choices available.

home: made [ tie dye bedding ]
With marble still being a strong trend, why not try tie dying at home in black and white to create a similar monochrome look.
It’s simple and effective and all you need is the dye and some cotton plain bedding.
Try John Lewis, Argos or Dunelm for great plain bedding.
We love this effective method from HonestlyWTF but also our favourite A Beautiful Mess has a great tutorial too.

Mix and match with other gorgeous glassware also from their summer sale.

home: trend [ vintage florals ]
Vintage florals is a trend to see you through the seasons with its lightness and beauty that doesn’t feel out of place near winter throws, velvet furniture and cosy nights nor out of place with rattan furniture, white walls and natural rugs.
It can be incorporated boldly with whole walls of tiling or wallpaper, clashing layers of cushions or an eclectic gallery wall of prints but also can be done subtly. A simple print on a wall, a feature armchair in a minimal room or random tiles dotted amongst plain on a splash back.
