With the strong trend for figurative and face illustrations on homeware, we love this beautiful Khark rug from Made.com at £299.

It is a hand tufted wool rug, which will bring a point of interest to a room, with its linear illustrations of abstract faces.

Stand out in a minimalist white room or clash and compliment with other patterns in a maximalist interior.

At this time of year and particularly right now all we want to cosy up and stay warm in our homes.

Along with soft fabrics, we love texture, and right now we are seeing a lot of this online and in stores. For example, cushions with pattern weave and raised short pile, chunky knit throws, and soft sheepskins.

With so much on offer, now is the time to layer up your living room and bedroom with gorgeous soft furnishings.

This Mexican inspired ‘gods eye’ wall hanging is a lovely piece of art for any room. It’s really easy to achieve and simply uses various yarns, dowls and a pair of scissors.

By setting the dowls in a cross you can then weave the yarn around to create the pattern.

The pom pom has grown in popularity in recent years and this year it has appeared on everything from shoes & clothing to garlands in the home. Appearing a lot on cuhsions, bedspreads and curtains pom poms bring a lot of fun to a room, also adding texture.

We all remember making pom poms at school, using a donut shaped piece of cardboard and a lot of wool. Although quite time consuming the result was worth it.

These days there are other ways to get the perfect pom pom and we have found some tutorials to show you how, plus different uses for them.
