home: trend [ organic ceramics ]

With an increased interest in handmade home accessories, this season we are seeing a lot more of this look in ceramics. Of course we know that some will not be handmade, but we are able to get the look, with uneven edges, organic shapes and engraving.

We are seeing subtle textures embossed onto vases and pots, engraved lines and even rattan decorated.

Colours are very nuetral, with stone, white, terracotta and black. Mix different styles and colours together for a curated look, and of course get your pops of colour this Spring with flowers and greenery.

Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.

The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.

When you try and find that perfect colour bedding that you’ve imagined in your head, that matches your walls or will compliment your interiors but just can’t find it; that slightly off white, that perfect pink, that earthy rust tone or even a good neutral flesh tone – head to Midnatt and we are sure you’ll fall in love with every shade.

Available online from their store but also from UK stockists including Cissywears – based in London and also online.

They say ;

Midnatt (or Midnight) is a newly established Swedish brand that makes bedding for children and adults in crisp, organic cotton. A washed-out favorite shirt and a country-side duvet cover that was added for several generations was the starting shot for Midnight’s first collection.

Our ambition is to always give your bed a contemporary look where colors and patterns can be combined just the way you want. Colored underlays and pillowcases sold separately make it easy for you to complete and update the bed with what you already have.

Our stew-washed finish gives the sheets a beautiful structure with preserved softness and the cotton’s ecological is for us an all natural starting point.

Forget the high tech gadgets, forget the plugged in paraphernalia, switch off all devices and embrace the santuary trend. 

It’s all about creating a natural, calm, serene environment to allow you to switch off, and for your over stimulated senses to have a break from work, stress, busy lives and hectic schedules. 

What better trend to bring in to your home? 

Using soft tones of colour, mainly neutrals and white, natural fibres and simple accessories including a happy abundance of indoor planting as this will increase the potential of your calm space. 

Create seating or bed cocoons with comfort and relaxation in mind. Layer up cushions and throws in soft fabrics, avoiding pattern or bright colours. Use voile or lace on windows to have privacy but allow plenty of natural light.

home: trend [ desert ] 

We are needing a retreat, a place of calm and perhaps an interior that makes us think of warmer climates, holidays and miles of endless sands. 

The desert trend back for 2017, with the surge in popularity of succulents and cacti still growing (happy plants we generally succeed in not killing!) is a strong easy look to pull together in a home. High street (and designer) stores have plenty of natural homewares, products that look as if they’ve been gathered from travels and craft inspired goods. 

Use bright light interiors and bring in leathers, weaves, wood and tapestry. Search vintage fairs for large patterned rugs or head to highstreet stores including Urban Outfitters, La Redoute and House Doctor for new versions. The current Summer sales are perfect to pick up large items that work with this trend – suede sofas and leather armchairs and with the good weather explore markets and carboots, and thrift unusual items, pottery and trinkets to build the look.  

Stick to neutral colours, dark and light but throw in a little colour in an odd chair or patterned cushion. Essentially use indoor planting for fresh green tones that will set off well against the tans, beiges, whites, creams and other neutral tones – with highlights of gold and bronze. 

Get creative and work on your own DIY projects for accessories – macrame pot holders, woven hangings for the wall and block print canvases leaning casually against the side.

Here, you become besotted with recycled and salvaged furniture, spend hours rifling through piles of linens, throws, rugs and towels and are led to believe hanging hooks and pot brushes are covetable items in their own right.

Mark and Sally Bailey, the force behind Baileys Home and Garden, have published three books expounding their design philosophy. We talked to the couple as they were wrapping up their fourth tome.
