This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.
Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.
An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.
If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.
An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.
Not just for the kids room, Styled By Naomi’s beautiful range of handmade wooden decor can be the perfect addition to any room. These adorable hand painted pieces range from cute pears to beaded garlands and fun other wooden shaped creations, as well as delicate dream catchers.
Perfect for gifts and very well priced considering they’re beautifully, individually created pieces.
SBN was founded by Naomi who designs and styles products by hand from scratch. As far as possible the resources are made and sourced in the UK only. We believe in sourcing responsibly and being sustainable.
We love a new season with lots of new arrivals hitting the stores. A favourite of ours spotted this week is from Rockett St George. Their Soho Ceramics range of vases and planters is the perfect addition to any home. The 70’s colours will bring warmth to a room and the paint dipped finish creates texture and pattern. A quirky addition is that all the ceramics are named after streets in Soho, London.
There are some gorgeous hand painted items available at the moment, from floral plates to polka dot mugs. The idea is so simple it’s worth giving it a go yourself.
Get hold of some basic white tableware [ try Ikea ] and then decide what look you want to achieve. Go monochrome and use a black pen to create a dot or stripe effect, or bring colour using paints [ dishwasher safe ] to make swirls, floral designs or a geometric pattern. Be as creative as you want, whatever works within your home.
We have come to see quite a lot of paint dipped items for the home over the last year or two. But this trend seems to be staying and where it has been really popular on furniture; chair and stool legs aswell as ceramics and vases, the big look carrying on through Summer into Autumn is dipped baskets.
This simple diy project uses very little extras on top of the basket itself. Pick the size and shape, decide on a paint colour – this could be a bright vibrant shade or classic white, also consider metalic shades – and grab a tray or large bowl to drop the basket into. [ another option is to use dye instead of paint ]
