home: trend [ colour block ]
Colour block – a trend that comes and goes across the interiors world but with the abundance of strong products on the current market, it’s definitely sticking around for now, is proving popular and is an easy look to achieve and evolve with homewares through the changing season – refreshing with different cushions, throws or artwork. Plus it’s also easy to update with a fresh coat of paint on a single wall.
It’s about picking a few strong colours that sit well together and emphasising with accessories in the same tone. For example -A bright yellow wall, a green sofa with green cushions and then dashes of orange in the curtains or rug. Keep patterns to a minimum and break up with lots of white and wood to ensure the few colours stand out strong and bold.
This trend is really aided by the great selection of bold coloured modern silhouette sofas currently filling high street homeware stores. Head to Made, John Lewis or Ikea for a range of affordable options. There are great options in the perfect colours of the year – emerald greens, mustards and deep rich blues.

Amongst all the gifts, goodies and other ‘lovely stuff’, there’s an abundance of great homeware pieces in the That Lovely Stuff online store. The store curates a variety of home accessories from a wonderful selection of creative mums – all designing and creating great products.
Did you ever think to yourself “I wish I had all of That Lovely Stuff”?
We did and then we got to thinking and realised how many talented friends we had, and the further we looked, we realised that friends of our friends were amazing too. With just those thoughts That Lovely Stuff was born. All of our products are made by people that we know or people that have been recommended to us and all of the items on the site have been tried and tested by the team here. Only the best will get on the site and we hope that you love it.
It gives us great pleasure to see all of our “mumpreneurs” making a living whilst bringing up their children. It really is the best feeling sending orders out to these lovely ladies and we hope you love their goodies as much as we do.
