home: trend [ pretty pendants ]

In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.

If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.

It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.

We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.

We love this diy project, and it’s so adaptable to your style and room. This woven lamp is simply made from two metal lamp shade frames and some cotton thread in various colours.

Attach the two frames together and then you can start getting creative weaving the thread. It’s an intricate process but we’ll worth it.

Inspired by interiors of the orient, this eastern trend is chic and now with a modernised edge.

Layer up intricate patterns of flowers, birds and illustrations on cushions and other soft furnishings. Keep the colour palette rich but muted tones.

Although busy with pattern and design ensure some larger areas – a wall or two, the rug or the sofa colour is paler and less fussy. Add accessories in lacquered black to add a contrast and richness to the scheme, with flashes of gold and iridescent pearl tones in lighting, ceramics and picture framing.
