Confession time: IConfession time: I’m a girl who loves a floral print. I was there when Cath Kidston opened her first store. I’m a Laura Ashely addict. And my bed is overflowing with floral cushions and throws. So you can imagine how bleeding excited I was to spot this trend – layers upon layers upon layers of florals *blooming lovely*
Key to this trend is to embrace every type of floral you have ever seen and then work them all together - from ceramics, to linens to cushions to candles to straoge jars to these cute spoons....I could go on and on.Key to this trend is to embrace every type of floral you have ever seen and then work them all together – from ceramics, to linens to cushions to candles to straoge jars to these cute spoons….I could go on and on.

I love travelling and one of the most exciting places II love travelling and one of the most exciting places I’ve been to it South America. I spent over six months over there exploring the place. So you’re going to understand why I adore the tropical shades of this trend – just look at the fabrics, colours and patterns! Wisk me away.

This bed linen was just beautiful to touch – heavily embroidered in rich cottons. I also love the brass lanterns and light fittings – such a neat idea. I just want to dive in – don’t you?

Interior Stylist Maxine Brady from WeLoveHomeBlog runs through her pick of the hottest home trends for 2016I’m so going to copy this idea at home. Ombre walls in scorcho shades of pink. Look how the yellow lanterns just POPS against it.

And this is why this trend is going last the longest. Greys, beiges, naturals have all been mixed in with key hole prints, mosaic patterns, velvet rugs, embellished metals and hand-craved woods…AND Greek Gods (well, at least I think they are Greek!)Interior Stylist Maxine Brady from WeLoveHomeBlog runs through her pick of the hottest home trends for 2016Love this cushion – he’s rather dishy!

Interior Stylist Maxine Brady from WeLoveHomeBlog runs through her pick of the hottest home trends for 2016I’m looking for some little tables for my living room. Wirework in geometric shades sits so well in modern homes. Can you spot yet more Peachy Pastel with that armchair. Interior Stylist Maxine Brady from WeLoveHomeBlog runs through her pick of the hottest home trends for 2016Add natural touches to make this 2016 trend come alive. Look at the wooden furniture and the tray, and then mix in sculptural plants like these cute succulents.

Slogans have been around for yonks – but they don’t date. This cushion sums up the look – cosy, inviting and welcoming. Yep, Hug Me!

We also provide eco-friendly outdoor rugs in a wide range of fab colours and funky designs. Or, if you’re feeling particularly decadent – check out our recycled sari silk rugs.
