home: trend [ texture overload ]
We are getting geared up for Autumn and with that comes cosy nights in with comfy cushions and fluffy throws. Tactile homeware is everywhere right now and today we share some of our favourites.
Velvet continues to be the fabric of choice this year on chairs and sofas, along with cushions. Now we are seeing velvet on lighting and lampshades like the ceiling pendant pictured from Rockett St George. [ there is also a table lamp version ]
Layer your room with tassled, fringed and pom pom cushions, throws and rugs. The more layers the better. When we look at colours for Autumn we are seeing lots creams, terracotta, red and grey. This is a lovely pallete to work with and perfect for the season.

home: made [ pom poms ]
Pom poms have made a bit of a comeback recently, whether it’s fringing on cushions, throws and light shades. Or large pom poms covering the whole item.
Today we share some great tutorials showing you the techniques for making pom poms and the best ways to attach them to your desired cushion or throw [ Of course, you can always buy ready made pom poms to cut the job in half ]. Have fun with it, mix colours up for a kids bedroom or perhaps something more subtle for a grown up living room. The options are endless.
[ Pom pom trim available from eBay and Amazon ]
