Based in Cornwall, Alice in Scandiland was launched in 2018 as a bricks and mortar store. Alice in Scandiland is also an award winning blog, and this lead Alice Collyer to open her own store under the same name.
Full of gorgeous Scandinavian inspired homeware, including textiles, ceramics, furniture and accessories this is a must visit store.
A beautifully curated collection with something for everyone. We love the design and functionality of the items. Simple design and a neutral colour palette is all you need sometimes.
We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.
Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.
Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.
Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.
This woven style extends to pendants lights giving a very relaxed Boho feel. Lots of layered soft furnishings and natural colours. Go as bold or as subtle as you want.
With a little reinterpretation of the strength of wildness of the 1970s this trend is a contemporary take on the clashing patterns, natural textiles, pattern mixing of the original look.
Bring together the organic feel of natural homewares including wicker, macrame, wood, jute and brick with the richness of burnt oranges, purples and brown. Use fabrics like velvets in sofas, weaves for walk hangings, hides and fluffy afghans in rugs and cushions and mix with earthy tones and metallics in the lighting, ceramics and sculptures.
It’s with the wall and floor covering that this trend really gains strength. Introduce wood panelling effect walls, real exposed stone walls, textured giant wall hangings of rich colour themes and the key to this trend – lots of indoor planting. Use great house plants with super architectural leaves and layer up with small hanging plants in plant hangers and also wooden and woven planters.
When it comes to well priced, on trend homeware you don’t need to look much further than H&M.
