To bring a room together or to give you a starting point for styling and picking colours for a room; a statement rug is the place to start.

The two main routes to take for interior designing from the chosen rug is to keep the rest of the room simple and minimal and take colours from the rug for small highlights around the room or follow the maximalist trend and continue from the statement rug with bold walls, patterns in soft furnishings and layer textures.

Amongst all the gifts, goodies and other ‘lovely stuff’, there’s an abundance of great homeware pieces in the That Lovely Stuff online store. The store curates a variety of home accessories from a wonderful selection of creative mums – all designing and creating great products.

They say;

Did you ever think to yourself “I wish I had all of That Lovely Stuff”? 

We did and then we got to thinking and realised how many talented friends we had, and the further we looked, we realised that friends of our friends were amazing too.  With just those thoughts That Lovely Stuff was born.  All of our products are made by people that we know or people that have been recommended to us and all of the items on the site have been tried and tested by the team here.  Only the best will get on the site and we hope that you love it.

It gives us great pleasure to see all of our “mumpreneurs” making a living whilst bringing up their children.  It really is the best feeling sending orders out to these lovely ladies and we hope you love their goodies as much as we do.

home: trend [ gold ]

It doesn’t have to be brash or over shiny, it doesn’t have to come across ostentatious or too blingy but this season, gold is the colour to embrace. From the, it seems, permanently on trend, metallics family, gold is a great colour to introduce in small homewares or be bold and embrace layering golds from walls, to floors, to ceramics to soft furnishings. Use either dark tones or soft blush and whites to sit along side.

Another long established brand, British Home Stores [ BHS ] which already disappeared from our high street, is now sadly also disappearing from online too.

The brand had decided to maintain an online presence with their clothing, homeware and infamous lighting, but now, after not long at all,they are pulling the plug on that too.

Just another all to familiar sign of the British retail industry losing pace and saying goodbye to another long standing retailer.

Head over to their website now and explore their closing down sale. It’s a good time to get some great bargain homewares at up to 50% off.
