Hot outside. Bliss inside.

If you’re keeping it local this Summer, it’s time to fall in love with your home all over again.

A few beautiful additions can make a world of difference – a key floor rug, a scatter cushion or two or a well placed work of art – to transform your interior and make you want to stay in.

Be inspired by the small brands who are right on your doorstop, indulge your individuality and decorate differently.


There’s no shortage of original paintings and art prints to discover at, but keep in mind that all sorts of things can be used to adorn your walls. Think authentic juju hats from west Africa, a handcrafted wall hanging or quirky shelving systems.


Transform that ceramic tiled floor of yours with a spectacular floor rug to add warmth, texture and visual interest. A floor treatment is also a handy tool to help define spaces within a room.

There are plenty of options – choose a handloomed boucherouite rug made by Berber women, a geometric kilim, a traditional block printed rug from India or a natural hand-braided and coiled hemp rug for instance.


Set the scene with some key mood lighting.

The design of the light fixture itself is just as important as the light it throws so be daring and make a statement. Consider an upcycled skateboard deck, an industrial piece or something a bit playful and fun.


It’s such a thrill to find the perfect piece to furnish a room and at, we love anything unique. No matter what your style is from handcarved wooden furniture, vintage finds and one of a kind painted pieces, discover something a little different from the norm to create a truly original and personal space in your home.


And now for the finishing touches! Changing or simply rearranging the accessories in a room can have an enormous impact and freshen up a space. Try changing things up seasonly – afterall, a change is as good as a holiday!
