Its time to embrace embellishments with this gorgeous 2018 trend; and shop for anything with tassels, tufting, fringes and feathers.
The bohemian influences are strong for this look, layering, natural colours, textures upon textures, but it can also work with a clean, minimal look – using white homewares but with embellishments for texture, ensuring everything is in natural creams and whites.
Shops across the high street have a big range to create this look. It’s also worth having a search around vintage markets, eBay and searching for international sellers.
Sometimes you wish you could have a specific design on a particular item but not sure how to achieve it.
If we take a ceramic tumbler or pot for example, we have seen in the past how creative you can be with a Sharpie pen or washi tape. Today we share another way to get a sharp precise finish using printed graphics on decal paper.
This extremely simple diy project allows you to create any design you like and then transfer to ceramics.
We have seen this trend before and geometric patterns are always going to appeal, but this time the focus turns away from soft furnishings like cushions and rugs and more about wallpapers, tiles and art.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to tiles and whether it’s for the bathroom, kitchen or floor we can create bold patterns and experiment with colour. Create a focal point with a vinyl floor in a kitchen, leaving the walls a plain colour or maybe it’s a patterned wallpaper that takes your fancy, to act as a statement backdrop to the rest of the room.
A great way to introduce pattern into a room is with art. Choose a select few pieces to bring interest to a wall. Whatever you do be brave and embrace geometrics.
Head to John Lewis for a new look for the home. If you love bright colours, we’ve collated our favourite current pieces currently in-store and online.
A colourful look is great with a retro twist. Stick with hues that are similar shades of a few bright colours, with turquoise, burnt orange and red for a midcentury twist. Keep sofas, armchairs or other main furniture pieces in statement plain bright colours and opt for patterns in home accessories. Look for quirky additions like the John Lewis ‘On Air‘ light box and mix fun patterns like geometric and block printing in curtains, throws and cushions.
Love them or loath them, pinapples are this years choice of fruit…again! Seemingly beating of the likes of the cherry, banana and watermelon, this year we will continue to see pinapples on soft furnishings, wallpapers and in the form of accessories.
Bring some fun summer vibes to a room with bright wall art or printed cushion or keep it sophisticated with a tonal wallpaper.
Show your love of pineapples with accessories, like lighting, kitchenware or bookends, anything goes and there is a huge array to pick from.
Marble is strong trend for so many homewares and furniture, it’s been high on the radar for a while and is set to stay there this year. It’s such a great material, it’s practically become a new neutral. It can sit amongst many strong interior trends and work with many home styles. It goes perfectly with a minimalistic white interior but is equally a great way to break up and brighten an interior using strong jewel tones – layered and dark. Marble can come in black, white or sandy tone and this lends itself to an easy add in to designing a room.
A nice easy way to introduce or use marble when styling a room is with a coffee table. And there is an absolute abundance of high street, designer and online stores offering a huge variety of styles, silhouettes, sizes and prices.
Designs often mix marble tops with metal framework base either quite minimal or with a geometric influence or wooden legs, wooden frames and even matching it with another material like wood or plastic and segmenting the top surface.
