Item of the week…

January 30, 2012

This week I love this ceramic heart-shaped lamp, available from Next Home. Intricately designed and an original design, this lamp would be ideal for creating a cosy atmosphere to a bedroom with the light peeping though the holes of the heart. It would look perfect in a shabby chic, vintage or girl’s bedroom.

Interior Trend: Britishness

January 24, 2012

With the London Olympics and the Queens Diamond Jubilee taking place this year, it’s not surprising that Britishness is trending in interior design. It all began last year after the Royal Wedding. People became patriotic and nostalgic towards all things British, buying cake stands, bunting and iconic decor. I have picked out some of my favourite home accessories that reflect this interior trend. Also, keep your eyes peeled nearer the Queen’s Jubilee for my styling and decoration ideas for your street parties!

With Christmas gone, and the new year now here, the interior design world brings the emergence of new trends, and the continuation of last year’s favourites. So here are some new trends which I think will be popular in 2012. Over the coming months I will be sharing with you my favourite designs that reflect these trends, if my predictions are correct!
