home: trend [ modern folk ]

Taking inspiration from traditional homeware from the past couple of centuries, and objects and colourful patterns of the past, but with a modern twist, this trend can be a bold or subtle look depending on the colours chosen.

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.

Amongst all the gifts, goodies and other ‘lovely stuff’, there’s an abundance of great homeware pieces in the That Lovely Stuff online store. The store curates a variety of home accessories from a wonderful selection of creative mums – all designing and creating great products.

They say;

Did you ever think to yourself “I wish I had all of That Lovely Stuff”? 

We did and then we got to thinking and realised how many talented friends we had, and the further we looked, we realised that friends of our friends were amazing too.  With just those thoughts That Lovely Stuff was born.  All of our products are made by people that we know or people that have been recommended to us and all of the items on the site have been tried and tested by the team here.  Only the best will get on the site and we hope that you love it.

It gives us great pleasure to see all of our “mumpreneurs” making a living whilst bringing up their children.  It really is the best feeling sending orders out to these lovely ladies and we hope you love their goodies as much as we do.

Simple, stylish and perfectly on trend, Curby have created the nicest, easiest little DIY to make a great scandi table cloth.

The simple cross design in black and white is minimal and perfect for monochrome lovers but could just as easily be translated using other colours to suit your choice.

And the finished printed fabric doesn’t necessarily have to be a table cloth but could be turned into cushions, curtains or napkins!

Inspired by interiors of the orient, this eastern trend is chic and now with a modernised edge.

Layer up intricate patterns of flowers, birds and illustrations on cushions and other soft furnishings. Keep the colour palette rich but muted tones.

Although busy with pattern and design ensure some larger areas – a wall or two, the rug or the sofa colour is paler and less fussy. Add accessories in lacquered black to add a contrast and richness to the scheme, with flashes of gold and iridescent pearl tones in lighting, ceramics and picture framing.
