    As spring creeps into the air, so do our thoughts of exotic escapes to sunnier climes. It seems that Ikea’s been doing a little crafty mind reading, with the timely reveal of its beautiful new Nipprig collection. Inspired by Vietnam, it’s full of natural rattan textures and bursts of leafy greens, with many of the items feeling like a tropical twist on the brand’s classics.

    Inspired by the bleak beauty of Dungeness and the esoteric structures that populate the shingle beach in Kent, Mini Moderns have launched a new wallpaper design. I stumbled across the area on a road trip around the south east coast and was amazed by it’s scattered collection of dwellings, corrugated structures, the power plant and deserted boats. The landscape is very popular among artists and Mini Moderns have just finished converting an old railway carriage and managed to knock up a new wallpaper design, while they were there…
