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.
It’s cool, it’s calm and allows you to create a sanctuary in your home. Follow the cool tones trend and fill your interiors with soft greys, cool blues, gentle pinks, pale greens – and textures of knit, linen, cotton and lace.
Use along side light wood or white furniture and keep accessories minimal to not clutter the look.
One of our favourites for homeware is La Redoute, so we’ve been picking our favourites from the current collection (see picture). There’s a wealth of trend aware pieces to choose from and now get 40% off with code BLACKFRIDAY at the checkout. It’s the perfect time to make an investment in statement pieces (including the rug that even had its own instagram feed!) with this huge discount.
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.
