Many of us have gone through changes in attitude and priorities recently, and this is reflected in our choices for interiors design. Our new appreciation for nature is guiding us towards natural materials and our desire for comfort and ease is met with a modern bohemian style.
Pieces that can transform an outside space into a relaxed and welcoming set up (as and when needed) are desirable with our temperamental weather forecast, and well as working beautifully inside the home. We have put together this collection to suit this transitional time in our lives to make the most of whatever situation.
Leading the way is our new Embroidered Pom Pom Pouffe. Perfect as an impromptu extra seat, a welcome and inviting footrest or as an additional surface to place a tray, and the paired-back natural linen colour ensures it will sit in with most colour schemes too.
We are styling this pouffe with other natural fabrics, reclaimed woods and neutral shades. This pouffe will be entirely at home in your bedroom, sitting room or even on your balcony or terrace - quickly becoming one of your favourite pieces that you won't know how you lived without!
This wonderful handmade block printed and embroidered throw embodies the artisan and handcrafted textiles of India and Africa. A heavy and dense weave cotton throw in rich blue tones against a natural background with an interwoven dark thread that runs across the blanket. We love the block-print-style and dense weave that takes design elements from African style. The tassels on the two sides ensure a laid back boho vibe and the natural handmade, woven texture ensures a wonderful handle and drape.
The interior accessory equivalent of the 'messy but gorgeous hair bun', this versatile and relaxed throw will bring you happiness, comfort and style in a multitude of settings. Not only would this blanket look heavenly casually resting on the back of your sofa or favourite armchair, or draped across your French bed, but also simply hung up on an oversized hook waiting for you to come home, snuggle under and unwind. We like the idea of using it in the garden for summer entertaining too. If you are a creative thinker, this throw could make a unique artisan curtain, wall hanging or room divider.
For a truly versatile, as and when you need it piece, this mesmerising blue tray top bedside table will always find a use. Sitting atop an iron metal frame, the tray is made from enamel in a shade of deep classic blue, the Pantone Colour of the Year 2020.
This chenille rug, with its abstract Picasso-esque line drawing, will turn your floors into a work of art. The black drawing is created from woven tufts, rather than simply printed onto the rug, and the neutral background ensures it won't detract from other treasures in your room.
The woven, tufted nature of the rug is exceptionally soft underfoot. We love the design, the softness and the bohemian tassels. We are styling it amongst strong colours such as black or against neutral and natural tones for a more artisan and bohemian aesthetic. A great way to bring in high design with an exceptionally affordable price tag.
Sometimes the best creations are formed organically. These agate bookends are created from organic semi-precious stone, crafted from a single block of agate and polished by hand to accentuate their tonal teal and white hues.
These bookends will provide visual intrigue, making them the ideal wedding or new home gift that promises to instantly elevate one's abode. Agate is believed to aid concentration and create harmony, so these bookends are perfect for the office.
This cushion is everything a cushion should be, it's tactile, stylistically versatile and effortless on the eye. The cotton chenille fabric panel sections are soft against the skin while the extra-large tassels add fun and frivolity. Made from 100% cotton, it looks great styled with (on-trend) rattan, palms and natural woods for an artisan and boho aesthetic, but we think it's also rather beautiful nestled as a pair amongst florals, damasks and plain-dye linens in a smart and classically styled room. Have some fun with this wonderful tassel cushion, plumped with an ethically-sourced inner pad and sealed with a concealed zip on the reverse.
Light up your life with this heavily distressed wooden beaded chandelier has necklaces of large beads strung onto the hessian string that hang from hammered metal supports painted in a white distemper bringing in a gorgeous Ibizan vibe. The beads criss-cross at the base in an unstructured manner, giving it a charming and relaxed feel - pure luxury. We are styling ours amongst funky neon lights, velvets and brightly coloured embroidery cushions, pompoms and tassels (akin to Kit Kemp's designs from the famous downstairs bar at London's Ham Yard Hotel). Handmade by artisans, so each chandelier is slightly different, with the spaces between wooden beaded necklaces varying for a truly rustic and boho style.
With its iconic, seventies-style ogee shape, the all-over pattern on the California Springs Bed Linen Set is made from soft cotton chenille that will appeal to any retro-lover at heart.
This tufted bed linen set will look texturally spectacular accessorised with its coordinating cushion and European pillowcases along with natural toned accessories and green houseplants. Designed in Australia by renowned (and adored) textiles company Linen House, our California Springs Bed Linen is 100% cotton and washes beautifully, becoming softer with each wash - and doesn't need ironing either! We recommend washing inside out on a warm and gentle cycle (without detergent before first use) and giving it a good shake whilst damp to fluff up the chenille pattern.
Lastly, accessorise with Marlene… This gorgeous candle is more a work of art than merely a candle (and almost too beautiful to burn!). Marlene is named after a little elephant and hero of Michael Morpurgo's 'The Elephant In The Garden' that tells the heart-warming story of animal survival during the second world war. The raised white pattern detailing of swirls and dots emulates the stunning Indian bridal henna artistry. Its steady stature gives it presence while the subtle shades ensure it will seamlessly fit in many rooms of your home.
Elephants are traditionally considered a symbol of good luck and bringing them into our lives and homes is thought to bring wisdom, fertility, and protection. This majestic creature will be entirely at home with neutral tones, on distressed furniture or contrasting gold or brass surfaces. Our friendly elephant would make the perfect gift for those friends who have everything - if you can bear to part with such a magnificent piece!
