If you are accessorizing your rooms this Summer, be sure to feature something woven. Its all about the texture and detail.

Consider potted plants in woven baskets and bags, heavy woven cushion covers [ think macrame ] and jute rugs. Adding these pieces into a room will bring an artisan / handmade feel and soften a space.

If you want to make more of a statement choose a woven light fitting [ There are some stunning picks online – try grahamandgreen.co.uk & rockettstgeorge.co.uk ]. Woven chairs are big this season as well, like bold rattan furniture but focusing on a smaller weave.

It will always be a firm favourite with interior fans and designers; the industrial look is really accessible and is great mix with other trends including Mid Century and Scandi and of course you can bring in any paint colours you like.

This year it’s having a resergence in online stores with more and more choices for you to bring the industrial look to your home.

The key materials for this look are brushed metals, concrete, cork and wood. Exposed bulbs instead of using lamp shades, and wire and mess shelving units bring the look together. It’s very simple to achieve and you can go as far as you like with it.
