Give your home ‘curve appeal’, soften those edges, bring circular and rounded patterns and silhouettes into an interior to create a calm feel and modern design look.

Introduce the circular design in fabrics, wallpapers and other patterned soft furnishings, or try curves in furniture – rounded tables, soft cornered shelving, and moulded smooth plastic furniture. 

Look for inspiration from midcentury interiors and 1960s styling but give it a modern look by minimising too many bright colours and not clashing too many patterns. Furniture in plywood and plastic are always strong for curved silhouettes. Head to print stores like King & Mcgaw and Seventy Tree for extra details in your styling by introducing prints with circle patterns and colours that match your scheme.

Not everyone’s cup of tea for an online shopping destination but king of online selling, Amazon, is a surprising veritable gold mine for modern well priced homeware.

 A few searches of key wording including marble, copper, Moroccan, monochrome and even Moomin and we could be filling our virtual shopping trolley with anything from rugs to lighting, to ceramics and cushions, with prices so tempting it’s an easy way to kit out a new home with some great pieces, update current rooms or find great gifts for interiors lovers! 

If you love a certain look or piece from another interiors store but not the price tag, it’s definitely worth having a window shop around the Amazon mega site to see if a more affordable version is available.

Summer is upon us and to enjoy the sun we can look to style and design our outdoor living spaces are as exciting as our indoor spaces. 

Outdoor rugs are a great way to make an area stylish and attractive with colour, pattern or both. Tie in to chair cushion (try IKEA ) and throw colours; and style an area with as much attention to trend as any room. Plus add in some great garden accessories available across the high street – pots, ornaments, lamps and tables

To start the area design, find a great outdoor rug. We love this monochrome patterned rug from CuckooLand, which ties in perfectly to current trends. Style with either dashes of bright mustard or teal, or compliment with blush pink, metallic and greys.
