home: favourite thing [ bedding ]

When you try and find that perfect colour bedding that you’ve imagined in your head, that matches your walls or will compliment your interiors but just can’t find it; that slightly off white, that perfect pink, that earthy rust tone or even a good neutral flesh tone – head to Midnatt and we are sure you’ll fall in love with every shade.

Available online from their store but also from UK stockists including Cissywears – based in London and also online.

They say ;

Midnatt (or Midnight) is a newly established Swedish brand that makes bedding for children and adults in crisp, organic cotton. A washed-out favorite shirt and a country-side duvet cover that was added for several generations was the starting shot for Midnight’s first collection.

Our ambition is to always give your bed a contemporary look where colors and patterns can be combined just the way you want. Colored underlays and pillowcases sold separately make it easy for you to complete and update the bed with what you already have.

Our stew-washed finish gives the sheets a beautiful structure with preserved softness and the cotton’s ecological is for us an all natural starting point.

Influences from around the world, travels to exotic places, exploring far and wide – bring them all into home styling for the ‘traveller’ trend. Mixing block printed patterns with woven textures, baskets and ornaments that could have been picked up from the little streets of Marrakesh or the markets of Delhi, unique pieces that embrace another culture or way of life – all come together to create a rich interior.

Colours are rich and vibrant. Hand dyed fabrics and hand woven accessories sit on warm tone wood furniture like walnut or mango.

home: trend [ bold clashing ]

This year if you want to be bold then embrace the trend of clashing colours, patterns, textiles… it’s all about being brave with mixing sizes of pattern, tones of colour and creating a powerful, eclectic feel.

There is a certain compatibility but it feels very ‘carefully’ thrown together. Keep colours rich and break up the pattern with plain bold and bright pieces of furniture, but mix geometric patterned curtains with floral wall paper or mix a striped throw over a intricate print sofa.

2018 sees the continuation of velvet in homeware and interiors. This fabric that has gone in and out of favour has a new modern approach to use in styling.

Soft to touch, elegant to see and a great texture to add to a room decor. Velvet, or the cheaper velour option, is the perfect fabric to introduce to styling that fits well with other fabrics – silks, cotton, lace… and it is perfect to embrace the jewel colours trend. The fabric suits emeralds, navy, cerise, deep purple, mustard and other rich dark tones.

home: trend [ lilac ]

Go against the grain, choose a colour that unexpectedly is making waves in the interiors world. Choose lilac.

This calming soft tone is of course reminiscent of previous decades but with a modern approach it’s a perfect new colour to use. Layered up in shades it’s cool and calm but also subtlety feminine as long as you don’t go too floral or flouncy. Stick to solid tones and gain texture from velvets and knits. Create a room with midcentury furniture in teak or walnut; and lilac will compliment with ease. Look for danish silhouettes in armchairs and sofa design and keep accessories to a minimum.
