Its time to embrace embellishments with this gorgeous 2018 trend; and shop for anything with tassels, tufting, fringes and feathers.

The bohemian influences are strong for this look, layering, natural colours, textures upon textures, but it can also work with a clean, minimal look – using white homewares but with embellishments for texture, ensuring everything is in natural creams and whites.

Shops across the high street have a big range to create this look. It’s also worth having a search around vintage markets, eBay and searching for international sellers.

home: trend [ peach ]

2018 sees peach as the new colour to love. Peach is the ‘new’ blush – becoming a colour favoured as a great highlight in dark grey or black, or minimal white interiors.

It’s great as a highlight, but create a beautiful look with blending shades of the hue across a room, keep it minimal with no pattern but let the colour do the talking.
