This last year has seen a massive resergence in 70s inspired rattan furniture. A boho feel, with a relaxed vibe was seen everywhere, and is still very much a popular choice.

This year we are seeing a lot more woven furniture incorporating Japanese influences. The pale wood tones are being mixed with black for a more striking look. This can be seen on cabinets and screens, again with Japanese influences.

The fine weave we are seeing creates a lovely pattern and texture on table tops and door fronts, perfect for a statement piece. Don’t go overboard with this, as the more stripped back the better. Let the furniture do the talking, so just invest in one or two items to tie into your space.

With Spring in the air it’s time to think about outdoor living, planting and gardens. It’s great to make personal touches within your space with your own design creations on plant pots. This can allow them to match a colour theme, follow a trend, label what’s in the pot or personalise them as a gift!

We love the design idea from Homedit with its modern geometric look and metallic colours.

For a plethora of ideas head to BalconyGardenWeb or have a look on Pinterest

All you’ll need is paint and, if it’s not outdoor paint then a good fixer spray or varnish will ensure it lasts and holds up to the weather. You can get plain pots from garden centres, IKEA, or try online at Hobby Craft or Baker Ross for great prices.

We spotted this gorgeous set of bamboo tables, perfect for any living room. The bamboo base sits on iron legs, giving a contemporary feel and because it’s black it not only will work with most colour palletes, but it is also an alternative modern look to natural bamboo.

As quite often with trends they come and go, and then come back again, and one of those is marble. With so many marble products available it’s coloured examples we look at today.

Gone is the white marble and in comes black, green and pink. You will start to see this on coffee tables, kitchenware, shelving and lighting. This material works really nicely with mixed metal & black accents.

Marble also goes beyond table tops and can be seen on home accessories including clocks, bookends and coasters. Get your little marble fix without breaking the bank.
