home: trend [ rust ]
The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.
If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.
For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.

home: made [ bedside shelving ]
January is definitely a good time for new interior ideas and DIY projects, and with purse strings being a little tighter after Christmas, a good affordable DIY is a good option.
We love this staggered upwards box shelving idea from Homesthetics which as well as being stylish, it’s practical offering a decent amount of shelving and storage for a company space as the space is gained going upwards.
Head to high street stores for affordable box shelves to work with in staggered formation up the wall. We found good options at IKEA, IKEA, Dunelm and MrHousey.

Still time to catch this great exhibition at the Design Museum. ‘Home Futures’ runs until March.
