    Trend alert: add a natural touch with wood grain

    by  • Tuesday, November 17, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    With all the dark colours of winter’s palette, it’s refreshing to find a trend that brings a little life and nature back into our schemes. Wood grain is not only beautiful to look at, but really easy to work in – keep it modern by choosing either a permanent statement, such as a herringbone floor or bold wallpaper, or go for a subtler approach with occasional accessories.
    Topps-TilesSuitable for pretty much any room in the house, these wood-effect tiles from Topps Tiles are actually made from porcelain. Available in either a gloss or polished finish, mix and match different colours for a modern vibe, or stick to just one shade for a more traditional feel. Great for a luxury look that’s hard-wearing and easy to clean!

    Ella-DoranThis vibrant wallpaper from Ella Doran (above) is not for the faint-hearted, but brilliantly good fun if you’re feeling bold. The large-scale exposed grain is digitally printed for striking detail, and the paper has a textured finish for an authentic look. Available in pink or blue.

    West-ElmThese subtly patterned towels from West Elm (above) are a really natural way to add the trend to your scheme. Choose from white or grey, then team with a simple palette and touches of real wood for an organic feel.

    It’s all about the winter pineapple!

    by  • Saturday, November 14, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    There’s no denying that the humble pineapple was a hot trend this summer, as this tropical fruit could be seen splashed all over textiles, t-shirts, mugs, bags, decorations and even nail art (!), but it seems that we really can’t get enough of this spiky-topped motif, as it’s a trend that’s now translating into winter too. This season however, it’s all about a more grown-up pineapple, in metallic shades of gold and brass, shying away from the bright pops of yellows, greens and pinks, but adding a bit of glamour to the fruit instead. Giving the feeling of a vintage collectable, whether it be an ornament, in lighting or even across wallpaper, keep the colours dark and dramatic and the materials luxe and glamourous.


    Often considered a symbol of hospitality in the home, this glam pineapple wallpaper from Barneby Gates in deep charcoal and gold, costs £78 per roll and will transform a hallway or study space into a moody, raj-style room.


    Keep precious jewellery and knick-knacks in these gorgeous metallic fruits trinket pots, from £12.50, Oliver Bonas.


    This striking pineapple bed linen from The Secret Linen Store costs £50 for a double duvet, £10 for a pillowcase and is woven in 280 thread count 100% cotton for a luxurious and relaxing nights sleep. (Available from this Tuesday!)


    Imagine these little pineapple candles from Rockett St George, £8 for 6, flickering away on your dining table this Christmas, giving a tropical, festive feel to your celebration.
