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.

home: featured [ Chalk & Moss ]
Founded by Swede Anna Sjostrom Walton in 2017, Chalk & Moss is an online homeware store and blog focusing on Biophilic Design.
The term biophilia means love of life or living things. The term was first used in 1964 by psychologist Erich Fromm, defining it as “the passionate love of life and all that is alive”. It was popularised by biologist Edward O Wilson in 1984, who in his book “Biophilia” refers to “an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.”
The online store is full or gorgeous Scandinavian inspired products including handmade furniture, ceramics and printed linens. This carefully curated collection is all ethically sourced and put together to enhance your wellbeing and lifestyle.
‘So called Biophilic design achieves wellbeing by reconnecting us to nature through the spaces we occupy. This is the umbrella for my approach. It can easily be translated to our own homes through aspects of green design‘
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.
Sofa £389.97 Furniture 123 / Cushion £45 John Lewis / Rug £175.20 (sale) Houseology
Cushion £10 (sale) Made / Chair £160.65 (sale) Clippings / Rug £96.99 Wayfair
Armchair £499 (sale) Made / Throw £30 Trouva / Pair Cushion Covers £6 Dunelm
