home: trend [ natural finishes ]
A big trend we are seeing this year and in particular this Summer, is natural finishes.
This stripped back look can be seen on tables, chairs, lighting & mirrors. Of course you probably don’t want to deck out your whole room in eveything pale wood, but just a few of these pieces will mix well together.
If you like a neutral colour pallete or earthy tones are your thing, this is where you can have the most fun. In a dining room a natural finished wooden dining table and chairs can look amazing against a dark green wall or black kitchen cabinets.
In a living room a wooden lampshade can be a lovely addition. The light is often softened and it will certainly be a focal point.
If you choose items that are also untreated then you have the option of painting them at a later date. There are so many great colour choices available.

home: trend [ natural lampshades ]
With the Winter nights upon us, it’s now the time of year to focus on lights in the home. Create cosy spaces for the evening and bright work spaces throughout the day. A big trend this year has has been rattan and woven lampshades and this is not going away through into 2019.
This style gives a relaxed feel to a room and will work with most decor. The natural fibres and woven form soften a space and allow for any colour backdrop.
Wood accents are also big for next year, so this is a great way of introducing this through lighting.

home: trend [ marble ]
We have seen a huge increase in popularity for marble over the last few years and it’s a material that is being used in prety much every homes.
Whether it’s in the form of kitchen accessories, table tops, tableware, printed soft furnishings, marble is such a gorgeous material with a beautiful pattern, you will always feel you have a unique piece in your home.
This year has seen marble mixed with pastels and metalics; copper, brass & gold. We now see marble in a more basic form, appreciating its character without the additions of colour working alongside it.
Table tops are being seen with simple black metal or wooden legs, and vases and accessories apear less fussy. [ Look out for the additions of black & white to compliment a piece ]. And of course this means you can opt for any wall colour you like as you won’t need to worry about clashing tones.
