Oh, and if you’re looking for styling inspiration, check out their new catalog in store or here for ideas, tips and the trends dissected by yours truly.
1. These pretty pendants
Pendant lights are top of our wishlist this year, and we love this French Touch trend take on the industrial design. These are so pretty, €60.
2. These Raw Beauty-inspired lampshades
Raw Beauty is one of the biggest trends this year, and it’s all about natural colours and materials. These giant lampshades are a simple way to incorporate the trend into your kitchen or bedroom, €100.
3. Everything by Murmur
Literally. We couldn’t take our hands of Murmur’s throws, linens and pillow cases. Influenced by Scandi and Japanese design, these beauties are made from all natural materials, decorated with geometric patterns and prints. We love. In terms of pricing, you’re looking at €20 – €130 for both Broad Stripe & Mosaic linen. Cushions start from €48.
4. These hanging macrame
These are simply so, so cool. If you’ve got a long window frame or space in your bathroom, these are the ticket. Small, €15, large €20, and top of our must-buy-ASAP list.
5 and 6. Kitchen essentials
Sometimes all it takes is a new chopping board or these patterned tins to breathe fresh life into your kitchen. Marble and wood board,€25, pack of three tins, €10.
6, 7 and 8. Gold Standard inspo
Gold Standard is another massive trend this spring/summer, from small nods to the trend – gold-trimmed candle holders (€10) picture frames (€5) – to bigger, bolder pieces like this giant bowl (€65). We’re total suckers for an inspo quote …
9. Rugs in every colour
Don’t be intimidated by replacing your rug. There’s a balance between spending a fortune and getting quality on a budget. We give Harvey Norman’s rug selection two thumbs up – you can go colourful, muted, patterned or plain, and spend a little or a lot. Check out their freshest threads, from €150 upwards.
10. This genius herb-feeder
We Instgrammed this little gadget last week. Ever wondered why your basil plant is so sad? Herbs need to be watered from the bottom up, but if the idea of a grim, saucer filled with water on your windowsill fills you with dread, this is for you. This pot keeps herbs hydrated, so there’s really no excuse for not growing your own, €25.
11 and 12. Pottery pieces
These caught our eye for all of the right reasons. These weighty ceramic jugs from €15
and are textured, hold flowers beautifully, or just sit pretty in your kitchen. Plus, check out those trays, from €12, – very Moroccan chic.
13. This handy Kilner jar
Still on a health kick? We spotted this Kilner jar for your salad, it even has a separate twisty cap for dressing, €10.
14. Water colour tableware
This tableware jumped out at us. The ‘Beth’ dinnerware range, in teal, starts from just €8.
15. These throws in every single colour
We may have to buy more chairs to facilitate all of our throws at this stage, but we love the idea of changing these up every season for a little sofa refresh. The technicolor rainbow one at the far right is our personal fave … From €30
16. These moody blue candle holders
Need we remind you how much we adore candles? Everywhere. These are super handy for throwing a few night lights into. You’re looking at a glass tea light holder, €5, Indigo blue glass candle holders from €12, and their Voyage Sapphire glass candle, €30.
17. This bug’s life cushion
This cushion nods to two major trends this season – Gold Standard (as mentioned, above) and Natural Attraction (think greenery, plants, tropical patterns and prints and wildlife). This is a quirkier piece that’ll pack an instant punch, €40.
18. Cactus, anyone?
Speaking of natural home accessories, these cacti caught our eye. If you like your home to be a little more playful, you need one of these. This could be an especially cool piece for a kids’ room, small, €85, large. €145,
19. These minimalist clocks
These are so simple, super lightweight and for 20 quid? Where would you be going. We’ll have one of each, please, €20 each.
20. The softest pillow ever
We had to make a little video to showcase just how soft this pillow is. Can’t cope. Real Mongolian white cushion, €55.
21. These modern bell jars
Marble effect and glass, these little podiums are the perfect bookshelf addition and a great way to incorporate a little greenery in your home, too.
Happy Spring/Summer ’17, Gaffers!
