Launched online in 2009, Winter’s Moon is a curated collection of colourful vintage, modern and handmade homeware. Based in Chichester founder Julia Grant has created a glorious online store with lighting, furniture, accessories and prints.

Everything has vivid colour and pattern and we particularly love the floral design found on their lampshades and cushions.

Colour and pattern just make us happy, and this is reflected in our collection which changes often, with many items designed in-house and hand made here in the UK just for Winter’s Moon

If you are in Chichester be sure to pop by the studio or head to wintersmoon.co.uk

home: trend [ 70s ]

There was some incredible design and style to come out of the seventies – it wasn’t all bad bell bottoms and glitter, but the design mentality of the midcentury continued, evolved and produced slick but funky interior design, luxury and a lot about comfort and relaxing – think low level seating, sumptuous throws, endless cushions, fabric on walls, even padded walls… dinner partying in the home and cocktail evenings or ‘soirées’ were becoming all the rage so creating the right home environment was key.

Fast forward to present day and a lot across the current high street has taken inspiration from the styles, patterns, furniture silhouettes and luxurious feel.

The colour palette to stick to should include neutral creams and beiges with rust, red, mustard and green tones. For a modern approach keep things quite minimal with not overlaying too many strong patterns as they would have done in the 70s.

Hunt on eBay, in markets and at car boots for pottery, ceramics and homewares of the era to bring in the right details but also high street favourites Habitat and Dunelm have some great modern equivalents.

The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.

If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.

For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.
