    Bloomingville, Danish design, Debenhams, home shopping spy, ideal home, housetohomeDanish homeware brand, Bloomingville, opened it’s first UK concession this week in Debenhams. I’ve been a fan of their product for years so am most pleased. You’ll find cushions, tableware, chunky wood furniture, trays and storage boxes. Everything in the range feels really cohesive in tasteful, muted tones and I love their mix of materials, including copper, zinc, wicker and wood. Here are a few of my favourite things…

    Colour combo crush: Neon & Grey

    by  • Thursday, October 31, 2013 • 3 Comments

    I’ve been stuck in a monochrome mood for a while now. My flat is almost devoid of any colour. Black, white, grey and natural wood are so easy to live with. I like the clean, Scandi feel and it’s easy to mix vintage pieces with new. Yes, it’s pretty safe and sometimes not very cheery and whenever I’m given a homey gift that might err on the side of colour caution, I have a mini freak out inside. (how’s that gonna fit in with my carefully crafted, muted scheme!?) But now that it’s grey and gloomy outside, I’m tempted to relax a little and embrace a touch of colour into my life/flat. What do you think of this colour combo?

    A tiny touch of neon can instantly make a room feel more lively. Fortunately, the way to work this trend isn’t full-on 80′s and garish. Apply it with a little restraint by adding just one piece in a room of otherwise neutral shades. I think I could almost live with that.
