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.

home: featured [ BHS ]
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.
home: trend [ peach ]
2018 sees peach as the new colour to love. Peach is the ‘new’ blush – becoming a colour favoured as a great highlight in dark grey or black, or minimal white interiors.
It’s great as a highlight, but create a beautiful look with blending shades of the hue across a room, keep it minimal with no pattern but let the colour do the talking.

home: featured [ John Lewis ]
Head to John Lewis for a new look for the home. If you love bright colours, we’ve collated our favourite current pieces currently in-store and online.
A colourful look is great with a retro twist. Stick with hues that are similar shades of a few bright colours, with turquoise, burnt orange and red for a midcentury twist. Keep sofas, armchairs or other main furniture pieces in statement plain bright colours and opt for patterns in home accessories. Look for quirky additions like the John Lewis ‘On Air‘ light box and mix fun patterns like geometric and block printing in curtains, throws and cushions.
home: trend [ marble coffee tables ]
Marble is strong trend for so many homewares and furniture, it’s been high on the radar for a while and is set to stay there this year. It’s such a great material, it’s practically become a new neutral. It can sit amongst many strong interior trends and work with many home styles. It goes perfectly with a minimalistic white interior but is equally a great way to break up and brighten an interior using strong jewel tones – layered and dark. Marble can come in black, white or sandy tone and this lends itself to an easy add in to designing a room.
A nice easy way to introduce or use marble when styling a room is with a coffee table. And there is an absolute abundance of high street, designer and online stores offering a huge variety of styles, silhouettes, sizes and prices.
Designs often mix marble tops with metal framework base either quite minimal or with a geometric influence or wooden legs, wooden frames and even matching it with another material like wood or plastic and segmenting the top surface.

They say ;
Really Well Made offers the very finest design-led contemporary furniture and accessories with a Scandinavian influence. We established in 2012 because we felt there were many retailers in the UK representing poorly conceived design products. We envisaged a collection of items that simply work well and transcend passing fashions. With that in mind we constantly search for design products which express a strong, timeless & minimalist aesthetic that will stand the test of time.
