Autumn Mood With Pressed Leaf Wallpaper

This pressed leaf wallpaper design gives the popular pressed flower style a cosy update as the colder months start to creep in. Featuring a mix of Autumnal leaves in warm tones that sum up the season, this wall mural is a style-conscious way to bring the comfort of Fall into your interiors.

It's easy to fall in love with Fall - with the fresh feeling in the air, pumpkin-spiced everything and, most of all, the reds, oranges and yellows all around as leaves fall to the ground and welcome the change in season. This new pattern wallpaper design by MuralsWallpaper shows a new take on the pressed flower trend of Summer, using crunchy fallen leaves to capture the essence of Fall.

The pressed leaf mural design is great for anyone looking to decorate for a cosy feel, but also wants a beautifully high-design and unique look. Perfect for putting in the places that should feel cosiest, such as the bedroom, living room, dining room and more.

Colours of the Season with Lovely Sofas

Each and every snazzy new sofa from Lovely Sofas is made to order in their Lancashire workshops which means customers can pick their own fabric from any of the beautiful fabric collections on offer.  There are clever velvets, cosy wools, and textured weaves to name a few, all perfect for creating an inviting sofa to nestle into on a cold night.  But what about the colour?  There are lots of pleasing shades to choose from making it super easy to stay on trend this AW18.

Don Large Sofa - Shown here in Downton Marigold Luxury Velvet. This rather refined sofa plays nicely with all sorts of décor. Its design is simplicity itself, with a fixed upholstered back rather than cushions and wooden legs rather than a base frame. Just add a cat, a dog or some kids and you’ll feel right at home.

Pretty in Pink

Whether it’s baby pink, soft dusky pink or bright bubblegum we are loving this feminine shade in our homes for this coming season.  Pink works really well with other pastel colours and is thought to bring warmth to a room, perfect for the seasons ahead.

You can up the stakes with a bold colour (like the pink in the pic) or play it subtle with something earthy. Either way, it’ll look gorgeous every time you walk in the room.

Going Green

Jewel colours are great for the festive season and bring a touch of glamour to the home.  Shown above is the gorgeously stylish Gracie Love Seat, featuring comfy scatter back cushions and elegant piping on the arms.  Alternatively, for something more formal, the Lottie Sofa below boasts a traditional deep buttoned diamond design on both its back and high sides making it supremely welcoming.

Good as Gold

Last but certainly not least, where would we be without a splash of gold in our homes and the trend forecasters are predicting it will be used with even more impact this AW season.  Forget small token accessories and go bold it seems!  The Linda Sofa looks absolutely gorgeous in this luxurious colour, shown below in soft clever velvet.

EU-Lifestyle-2-Web.jpg

The colourful mural provides people with a cool way to incorporate the unicorn trend in their interiors with a design that isn't too literal, but captures the essence of what makes the magic of unicorns so appealing.

Taylor Howes & Davidson Launch New Dining Table Collaboration

Taylor Howes and Davidson, two bastions of the artisan and design world in the UK, have revealed a stunning new dining table collaboration at FOCUS 2018. The table, named “The Howes Dining Table”, will be launched at a special event during the week and is the result of a 6-month collaborative process. This is the Davidson studio's first collaboration and a celebration of the pair’s 25-year friendship.

The Circualr Howes Table Variation.jpg

It took six craftsman and designers from the respective studios some three months to develop the prototype, which is hand carved and has a striking figured Angere to the top.  The table, which in homage to the philosophy of both firms is more akin to an art piece than something so functional as a table, boasts an eye-catching radial pattern on its surface and is a demonstration of the very best in British craftsmanship. 

The Howes Table Variation.jpg

The concept of the table was born out of the timeless nature of Davidson's existing pieces and the inherent nature of dining tables traversing decades, being passed on from generation to generation. Taylor Howes explored the nature of passing time and how this might be represented in the design, focusing their thoughts on a single day - from dawn to dusk.  This image inspired the River bed relief, which is reflective of the image of sun hitting rippled water at sunrise and the soft evening tone as it sets at night.   Working with Davidson it was decided that the shape of the table should be oval, as it continued the theme, with the continual loop, a never-ending passage of time. This was then followed through in the base, where the team created two semi-circular elements. 

The Howes Table_Taylor Howes & Davidson Collaboration (2).JPG

The collaboration forms part of a wider initiative by the Taylor Howes studio and is part of its #52WeeksofTH campaign. A year-long celebration of the studio's 25th Birthday, which has seen something new happen, either announcement, collaboration, Q&A or event throughout the year.  The collaboration with Davidson is one of the larger initiatives to happen in Taylor Howes' 25th year and its sits alongside the studio's own collection launch, which is to be revealed November 1st 2018 and the group's first Business of Design and Luxury summit, which is to take place on November 21st in the The Gladstone Library, One Whitehall Place, with guest speakers from the world of design and luxury internationally. 

Karen Howes, CEO & Founder of Taylor Howes, commented: “We are thrilled to be launching our collaboration during FOCUS. I have worked with Davidson for 25 years so it was fitting to work with them to create something truly unique and special for our 25th anniversary. Six months in the making, “The Howes Dining Table” is a statement piece and a signature of our design philosophy: elegant lines, exceptional craftsmanship and material imagination. We're known in the studio for our finishes and detailing and “The Howes Dining Table” is no exception to this. Working with Davidson has been a great journey; we've loved every part of it, from the early consultations to the unveiling of the finished piece. The table is a true celebration and exemplar of British craftsmanship, conceived in our studio by our in-house designers, the skilled team at Davidson then brought it to life, it is part of our commitment to preserve and uphold British craftsmanship”.

Bert & May x Anthropologie Collaboration

Bert & May are pleased to announce two new tile designs to celebrate their latest collaboration with iconic lifestyle store Anthropologie

A Gold Octagonal tile has been specially created for the event, bringing together the two brand’s distinctive aesthetics. It combines one of Bert & May’s most popular shapes, the octagon, with a soft gold shade that is synonymous with Anthropologie’s relaxed, elegant style. 

Bert & May are also showcasing a brand new version of their popular Pink Pradena tile at their Anthropologie Gallery pop-up – taking place 20th September – 18th November 2018. Now available as an on-trend hexagonal.

Lee Thornley, Founder of Bert & May comments: “We have been admirers of Anthropologie for several years now, so were delighted when the idea of a pop-up at their Chelsea store was mooted. We have loved fitting out the space, and can’t wait to meet local shoppers.”

“Our brand new tile design–created especially for Anthropologie by us– celebrates the best of both brands. Using the gold hue that Anthropologie is known for and combining it with our iconic octagonal design makes for a striking pattern–perfect for creating a stunning visual statement within the home.”

Smeg Teams Up With Disney For Limited Edition,

Following on from previous collaborations with Dolce&Gabbana, Mini and Veuve Cliquot, Smeg has partnered with Disney for its latest collaboration. To celebrate the special nature of the partnership, there will only be a total of 90 fridges made for the limited edition collection.

Smeg’s iconic FAB28 fridge is brought to life by an original drawing featuring Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse, who is also celebrating his milestone 90th  anniversary this year.

Both brands are synonymous with bringing the family together. For Smeg, at the heart of the company lies a focus on food, family and entertaining. Meanwhile for Disney, at its core lies the ability to bring people of all ages together, united in a sense of fun, laughter, optimism and hope.

Featuring a ‘True Original’ bespoke sketch of Mickey, each of the limited edition 90 FAB28RDMM3 fridges include an endearing image of Mickey playfully reaching for the fridge’s handle. 90 fridges will be produced, one for each year since Mickey’s debut back in 1928 making this a true collector’s item. Each fridge is decorated with a limited edition silver plaque signifying it’s unique number.

Aesthetically speaking, the FAB28 is Smeg’s most widely recognised design. Immediately identifiable due to its soft curves and 50s-inspired design, it paved the way to a refrigerator revolution in the late 1990s. Since then, it has become a global phenomenon. The interior benefits from adjustable glass shelves, chrome shelving supports, metal wine racks, LED strip lights, an ice compartment and a Life Plus drawer, which keeps fruit and veg fresher for longer. Each FAB28 provides a total gross capacity of 281L and offers an A+++ energy rating. In addition, Smeg recently upgraded all of its FAB fridges to include a metal back.

Born from an exciting collaboration between two creative and iconic brands, the FAB28RDMM3 is available exclusively from Smeg’s flagship store at 14 Regent Street St James’s. You may even find a hidden Mickey or two during your in-store visit.

Meystyle LED wallpaper to be Launched at Decorex International 2018

Meystyle will unveil its latest collection of LED wallpaper Conductivity which combines dazzling natural textures with an unprecedented use of light patterns.

unnamed-2.jpg

MEYSTYLE’s mission is to rescue walls from the background, integrating bold patterns with LED lights and crystals to create deep visual experiences that transforms walls and wallpaper into works of art.

The Conductivity collection is a celebration of the ubiquitous yet mysterious power of electricity. The designs dig into the infinitesimal world of the atom and its scientific representation as a source of visual inspiration.

Simple geometric elements like the line and the circle are used to give sense and order to the impenetrable complexity of chemical and physical phenomena.

unnamed-3.jpg

The use of LEDs in this collection is inspired by the exchange of subatomic particles generating the prodigy of light itself. Different wavelengths and levels of light intensity combine into dynamic compositions suggested by the way electrons interact. From cascading lines merging into sumptuous light waterfalls, to concentric circles representing the varying configurations of the atom, each design expresses the beauty of the natural world in its most essential form.

The Conductivity collection echoes its fascination with nature also in its choice of materials, ranging from refined linens and cotton canvases to elegant silks. A variety of metal accents, notably electricity's best companions enrich the natural properties of each texture with hand-painted details and gilded applications.

unnamed-4.jpg

About MEYSTYLE:

It has been more than 10 years since sisters Maria and Ekaterina Yaschuk first incorporated 99 LEDs into wallpaper in 2004 - the concept has been constantly refined since. The LEDs are fully integrated into the material of the wallpaper and textiles, allowing them to be used just like any traditional wall-covering or fabric – but with the added requirement of an electrical socket or switch.

MEYSTYLE integrates traditional crafts materials to compliment Swarovski crystals and LEDs. Some designs are hand-finished with screen printed elements and metallic painting to create a tactile feel.

Little Greene to Launch A Palette of Glorious Green Paints At Decorex International 2018

Since the beginning of 2018, Little Greene has been working in collaboration with the National Trust. As a result, an extensive paint research project has been undertaken in National Trust houses and gardens throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, to find original colours, and to tell the stories of the people who first enjoyed them. 

As with its previous colour-themed capsule collections, including ‘Grey’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Pink’, Little Greene has identified an unrivalled selection of 31 beautiful greens, each with a noteworthy origin, and each with an important place in contemporary interior design. There are 20 National Trust-derived shades, plus several important greens from Little Greene’s archives and the current colourcard have also been included.

Aquamarine 138, Ambleside 304 & Aquamarine – Pale 282

Aquamarine 138, Ambleside 304 & Aquamarine – Pale 282

Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian farmhouse, George Bernard Shaw’s revolving writing hut and even mythical birds featured on the wallpaper hung by Chippendale at Nostell Priory, the new colourcard features some intriguing stories and a gamut of glorious greens in a comprehensive array of hues. 

In true Little Greene fashion, the card and its contents are designed to be easy to use and choose from. Divided into five columns, the collection is loosely arranged to represent each of the key green families: grey greens, neutral greens, yellow greens, blue greens and turquoise greens. 

Jewel Beetle 303, Chocolate Colour 124 & Pique 299

Jewel Beetle 303, Chocolate Colour 124 & Pique 299

Little Greene’s Managing Director, David Mottershead, is excited about the new collection: “With access to over 350 significant historic interiors in the National Trust’s care, we have had an unparalleled opportunity to delve into a prestigious and eclectic mix of decorative styles. It’s been a fascinating exercise and, with such a wealth of resources at our disposal, the hardest part has been editing it down to a selection of colours that will be welcomed by today’s interior designers.” 

Clare Brown, Head of Brand Licensing for the National Trust, adds: “We are delighted with the association with Little Greene, which will help everyone to bring the nation’s heritage into their own homes. The two organisations have a real synergy, with conservation, restoration and reinvention at their core. The choice of green for the first collaboration is an inspired one: it is the colour of the National Trust and conjures up images of the expanse of gardens and countryside that we look after for the nation to enjoy.” 

A contribution from the sale of every can of Little Greene paint will be made in support of the National Trust’s conservation work, to ensure the nation’s historic houses, gardens and open spaces can be enjoyed for generations to come. 

In addition, Little Greene will be supporting the National Trust’s conservation and restoration programme by donating paints to bring colour and life back to some of the UK’s most loved properties. 

Little Greene paint is available nationally and internationally through Little Greene’s network of distributors, as well as via email and phone order and online at www.littlegreene.com

Louis Poulsen Present Limited Edition of the PH 3/2 Table Lamp

Louis Poulsen is pleased to present a limited edition of the PH 3/2 table lamp, originally designed by Poul Henningsen in 1927. The exclusive new edition features Italian mouth-blown, amber-coloured glass shades and a brushed brass frame. This limited edition will only be available from 1 October to 31 December 2018. 

PH-3-2-Limited-2018-01-02920 copy.jpg

The warmth and beauty of coloured glass

Louis Poulsen and Poul Henningsen initially introduced coloured glass lamps in the late 1920s to attract new customers. Then, as now, the naturally varying colourations won people over with their warmth and individuality, highlighting the beauty of hand-craftsmanship. In 2017, Louis Poulsen brought back the classic amber-hued shades in the limited-edition PH 3.-3 pendant with a brass suspension. Now, Louis Poulsen is pleased to offer the warm, inviting colour scheme in the versatile and beloved PH 3/2 Table lamp. 

“The amber-coloured glass accentuates the shade’s organic form. And because the glass of each lamp is crafted individually, each one varies ever so slightly from the others,” says Rasmus Markholt, Product & Design Director at Louis Poulsen. “This makes every limited-edition PH 3/2 Table lamp unique and as much a work of art as an ideal source of light. The colour scheme also reflects today’s retro trends and a growing desire to bring warm, metallic tones like gold and brass into contemporary interiors.” 

PH-3-2-Limited-2018-04-02923 copy.jpg

The glass shades’ amber hue, glossy surface and sandblasted matt underside create a soft, evenly distributed glow. In addition to reflecting light downward and outward, the glass shades also allow it to penetrate upward, contributing to the overall room lighting. The resulting tone creates a warm, welcoming ambience and a sense of intimacy, reminiscent of the comforting effect of candlelight. 

Even when unlit, the lamp continues to play a dynamic role in its environment, reflecting the surroundings off its surfaces. Its compact size makes the design ideal as an atmospheric side table or window lamp, a bedside reading lamp, or a desktop task lamp. 

PH-3-2-Limited-2018-02-02921 copy.jpg

A union of signature Poul Henningsen elements

The PH 3/2 Table lamp features Poul Henningsen’s legendary three-shade system, which he developed in 1926. The first PH Table lamp was completed in early 1927 and launched as an alternative to low-pitched hanging lamps. 

The frame of the new special-edition PH 3/2 Table lamp is based on that of a PH Table lamp from around 1927. Like all of the lamp’s metal parts, the frame is made of brass with a lightly brushed surface, the fine brush lines following the lamp’s contours and shape. The brass has been left untreated, allowing it to acquire a beautiful, unique patina over time, unless polished. 

The light switch on the limited-edition PH 3/2 Table lamp can be traced back to Henningsen’s 1927 table lamps. Also made of brushed brass, the through-switch is located on the stem near the base. Henningsen’s initials are beautifully engraved beneath the switch. 

PH-3-2-Limited-2018-03-02922 copy.jpg

The limited-edition PH 3/2 Table lamp will be available in stores from 1 October to December 31st, 2018. 

Gelato Geometrics: The Wallpaper Mural Collection

This mural collection is inspired by ice cream colours, bringing the pastel Summer trend seen all over SS18 shows at New York Fashion Week to interiors.

A-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

Gelato pastels were a prominent motif at last year's NYFW, found featuring in many designers' collections - particularly Victoria Beckham's. The confident display of pastels galore has set the sweet tooth trend in stone for Spring and Summer this year.

B-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

MuralsWallpaper have stacked up several of the soft-serve runway shades to create a cool collection of geometric murals, brimming with mint, parma violet, lemon sorbet and strawberry shortcake influence. 

D-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

Interiors that scream ice cream inspo

This newest pastel palette updates Pantone's popular pale Rose Quartz pink and Serenity blue choices for colours of the year 2016, bringing more contemporary shades and colour combos to the table for a fresh take on the pastel trend for 2018.

The geometric patterns of these murals give the colours a fashionable feel, and are used here in luxe, designer furniture settings that prove that adults can pull off playful ice cream pastels in the home as well - not just in their new Summer closets.

Joyous artesanía such as the kaleidoscopic folk art found in Oaxaca, traditional floral oilcloth designs and the bright flower arrangements that artist Frida Kahlo famously wore in her hair are all iconic Mexican decoration aesthetics, and all served as inspiration for this statement collection by MuralsWallpaper.

Each mural features layered, textured Mexican rose designs which reflect the style of ceremonial paper flowers and embroidered floral huipils. These are paired with warm, striking block colour backdrops, as well as neutral options for homes that are already drenched in vibrant decor.

Frida Kahlo was known to fill her home with Mexican folk art and bright colours – such as her yellow kitchen which was full of colourful ceramics. Let Frida's use of bold, cheerful colour in her fashion and interiors inspire a takeover of Mexicana style in your own home - carrying on the spirit of La Casa Azul.

Sneak Peek: The A by Amara AW18 Collection

Interiors emporium Amara present their fifth collection from the established and successful A by Amara brand. This season brings together even more desirable must have pieces to be coveted for the home.

Sam Hood, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Amara, and her team have concentrated on two trends for the season; Midnight Garden and Architect that both bring a fresh new outlook on two favoured interior styles.

Sam said; “We try very hard each season to offer something new and fresh to our customers that both excites and inspires them to embrace their own creative interior style. By traveling and meeting exceptionally talented suppliers, we’re able to create beautiful, one off pieces that can’t be found anywhere else.”

The A by Amara collection continues to evolve and develop each season.  The range provides customers with pieces to sit beautifully alongside their existing interior and also directional items to create a stylish look.

Midnight Garden;

This rich vivid look embraces those deep tones associated with the winter months with a regal and warm edge.  Highlighting rich floral patterns and exceptional beadwork, this look will add a level of opulence to any interior space.  One highlight of the collection is the embroidered and beaded soft accessories which, styled together or used as a stand-alone piece, will provide a striking addition to any bed or chair.

Architect;

A fresh and clean look, this trend boasts geometric straight lines in a simplistic style.  Loft living with a masculine edge was the inspiration this season with the use of simple colours of white, black and a warming brown. Adding metallic accent tones gives the collection a lift and embraces a warmer look within such an industrial collection.  Sketch work patterns are used in various ways including this striking bedding range.
