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.

This season we are seeing a lot of ornaments and accessories adorning shelves and tables in magazines and online.

With influences from Africa, Middle East and vintage pieces the sculptures and busts we are seeing have a strong artifact feel about them, like you picked it up on your travels and are years old.

Heads and busts are everywhere with tribal influences and animals feature heavily too. Mix these ornaments with artwork, plants and vases, to create a curated display.

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.
