Trend Alert

Can’t help being trend aware in my job and I do get asked ‘what is trending?’

I think my favourite trend is ‘things I have not seen before’, which, if you think about it, is not a trend… Oh dear!

My friend, Cori Roberts’ home is full of things I have not seen before…

Hall with tailor's dummy, black and white chequered floor and Bee wallpaper

Home cinema filled with giant bean bags

Boy's bedroom with Map of the World wallpaper on one wall

Master bedroom

Upcycled 1950's kitchen

She salvages, finds, experiments, upcycles…she even writes a blog about it Reclaim the Soul I happen to know that she sold a perfectly serviceable kitchen from John Lewis, when she bought her Glasgow home and used the money to buy this so loveable, salvaged 1950’s kitchen on Ebay!

And she does not have a lot of spare time: she has three young boys to look after and a husband who travels a lot for his work in the film industry…

I would suggest anyone with equally little time but the desire to fill their home with choice things that really are different has a look at a new home ware site UH HU

I was drawn to it, because it features the work of artist and designer Helen Wilson, her Amazonia range of wallpaper and fabric is just something else…

Amazonia Dark wallpaper

A modern take on Chinoiserie, that makes a statement rather than just a mere wallcovering.
