Article by Simply You

This year we’re seeing big, bold, textured trends making their way into our homes. We take a look at seven of the best styles and our favourite items from each 



1. Green living

Bring the lushness of the outdoors inside and you’ll see it’s easy to be green. A few well-chosen pieces will give you the green fix you need – a boldly coloured rug will add some drama but for those wanting a more subtle hit, try changing out some cushions in different shades.
