home: trend [ statement rugs ]
To bring a room together or to give you a starting point for styling and picking colours for a room; a statement rug is the place to start.
The two main routes to take for interior designing from the chosen rug is to keep the rest of the room simple and minimal and take colours from the rug for small highlights around the room or follow the maximalist trend and continue from the statement rug with bold walls, patterns in soft furnishings and layer textures.

home: trend [ herringbone ]
The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.

There’s a whiff of Spring in the air, if you aren’t still trudging over snow, so it’s definitely a good time for projects that create great pieces for the garden. Anything to help make that perfect outdoor living area to enjoy in the warmer months.
We found two great outdoor rug DIYs from two of our favourite creative maker blogs – A Beautiful Mess and Apartmenttherapy .
The first from ABM is a great, fun project, weaving your own rug from scrap fabric and finishing with a protective spray.
The second from ApartmentTherapy is a stylish idea to make an outdoor rug with waterproof fabric and then create a design on it waterproof acrylic paint.
