The last year has seen a massive increase in greenery in our homes, not only in painted walls and furniture, but also the increase in indoor plants [ faux and real ] spread throughout a room. Layer them up to create texture and shade.

Green is a calming colour and not only do leaf and plant prints bring the outside in, they also create interest and focal points. The plants themselves do the same.

Last year we saw green combined with millennial pink and this continues, although the tone has changed slightly and is more of a berry colour…think pale raspberry.

Work with these shades together through accessories with either the green or pink taking the walls.

home: trend [ Hang It ]

If it’s got a hook on the back if it hang it! That’s the basic rule to follow, with wall decor taking on a new style.

We all love a picture wall, framed prints and photos filling a space. Nothing wrong with that, although now there is so much more to display on our walls including hanging rings, macrame, baskets and planters. It’s nothing new, but a trend emerging currently is to soften a room with neutral tones and add the hanging items with materials to compliment – woods, rope, and metals with an artisan feel, almost hand crafted.

Plants play a large part, so get some baskets or metal rings and play around with faux or real succulents to create a relaxing space – ivy is great for this.

Feathers are popular, whether in art work, embroidery or hanging decor with the softeness and intricate design bringing interest and calm to a space. 

Whatever you decide, the choice is out there. A great place to start is online marketplaces Trouva and Amara.
