    by  • Friday, February 26, 2016 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Furniture favourite Loaf has launched a beautiful new vintage-inspired print – just in time for spring! The aptly named Vintage Rose is the latest addition to its fabric collection, and is the brand’s very first patterned design. The delicate, large-scale floral motif was designed alongside Designers Guild, and has a subtle, time-worn feel for old-school country glamour. Choose from Pink, Dusty Blue or Grey colourways, all set against a natural linen background.

    How to: Shop and style the botanical trend

    Spring might be taking its time, but there are lots of ways to create a fresh, springtime feel at home before the season gets going. One of my favourites is to take advantage of the amazing array of terrariums – they made their mark on the highstreet last year, and thankfully they’re here to stay and perk up a gloomy winter. Plus, they’re ideal for bridging the gap between seasons, so you’ll still be on trend when spring finally awakens…


    These open-topped terrariums are great it you’re green-fingered, allowing you to build your own little Eden inside. Mix and match small ferns, flowers or succulents, as well as small stones, for a unique creation that’s all yours.
