home: favourite thing [ mirror ]
There’s a whole lot of loveliness ‘new in‘ at Rose & Grey but our favourite pick is the midcentury modern styled bamboo mirror.
Great shape, texture and style to add to an interior and make a statement in a room.
There’s so much to love and admire about West Elm. They are a brand, with a conscience, focused on honesty and sustainability. Both on in the virtual and physical stores there is a wealth of incredible design, styling and interiors inspiration and guidance. West Elm can make a home – a real home; a blended, co-ordinated but eclectic, homely but chic, environment.
Their huge array of homewares and furniture is spot on both in design, quality and although high end of the price scale – it’s worth it. Plus, when there’s a sale, which currently there is (with up to 60% off) it’s a good time to invest in a few updates for your home or even a whole overhaul of a room.
The style is midcentury modern, mixed with bohemian and a little industrial. They create ‘looks’ that can be strong trends or ideas that can bring a subtle new trend into a home.
We found our top favourite pieces in the sale (see picture) but explore the sale yourself for great discounts in every department.
