home: featured [ Winter’s Moon ]
Launched online in 2009, Winter’s Moon is a curated collection of colourful vintage, modern and handmade homeware. Based in Chichester founder Julia Grant has created a glorious online store with lighting, furniture, accessories and prints.
Everything has vivid colour and pattern and we particularly love the floral design found on their lampshades and cushions.
‘Colour and pattern just make us happy, and this is reflected in our collection which changes often, with many items designed in-house and hand made here in the UK just for Winter’s Moon‘
If you are in Chichester be sure to pop by the studio or head to wintersmoon.co.uk

home: trend [ chrome ]
Once seen as a more dated metal finish over brass, gold and copper, chrome is making a comeback.
Chrome detailing can be seen on accessories like vases and ornaments as well as larger furniture like tables and cabinets, and of course lighting.
Large dome shapes are being seen in pendant lights and floor lamps with high shine finishes.
When it comes to wall colours, you can be a bit more brave with rich blues and greens, or go monochrome with black and white.

home: trend [ 70s ]
There was some incredible design and style to come out of the seventies – it wasn’t all bad bell bottoms and glitter, but the design mentality of the midcentury continued, evolved and produced slick but funky interior design, luxury and a lot about comfort and relaxing – think low level seating, sumptuous throws, endless cushions, fabric on walls, even padded walls… dinner partying in the home and cocktail evenings or ‘soirées’ were becoming all the rage so creating the right home environment was key.
Fast forward to present day and a lot across the current high street has taken inspiration from the styles, patterns, furniture silhouettes and luxurious feel.
The colour palette to stick to should include neutral creams and beiges with rust, red, mustard and green tones. For a modern approach keep things quite minimal with not overlaying too many strong patterns as they would have done in the 70s.
Hunt on eBay, in markets and at car boots for pottery, ceramics and homewares of the era to bring in the right details but also high street favourites Habitat and Dunelm have some great modern equivalents.
