home: featured [ River Island ]
High street fashion giant River Island has joined the ranks of Zara, HM and French Connection and introduced a homeware department to their already popular fashion clothing brand.
Their launch products are small homewares, including vases, candle holders and dishes and soft furnishings, including cushions, rugs and bedspreads. It’s a mix of luxe boho and wild jungle and has got the usual RI sparkle and panache.
home: trend [ tropical botanicals ]
We have seen a lot of tropical prints over the last year, so this won’t be new to most. But with fresh takes on pattern with a focus on the botanicals and feel good colours, it’s hanging around for a while longer, and a winner in many peoples eyes.
For an instant jungle vibe wallpaper is the place to start, choosing a basic palm leaf pattern or go all out with one with animals as well.

Cushions are also a great way to introduce this trend bringing print and pattern to a plain sofa or chair. Bring some fun to a dining table with palm inspired tablecloth or table runner.
