Brit Decor: Refresh / #HabitatSS18

With practically an entire year ahead of us there's plenty of room for interiors inspiration, right? Having floated around Top Drawer London this week, I'm already brimming with homewares inspo and feeling slightly relieved that gold is still set to shine its way through 2018 - cue Coach House's burnt umber velvet sofa and gold palm leaf floor lamp!

Remaining firmly on the topic of the UK interiors scene, as my regular readers will know, I have always had a soft spot for Habitat and their design-led products, hence my heart is 99% guaranteed to skip a beat whenever I get a peek at a new collection from this British staple of home decor.

Globally inspired pieces in the #HabitatSS18 collection echoes travels to Vietnam, California, Portugal, India, Africa, Scandinavia, and a really interesting blend of luxe through to slow living, minimalist designs. There's also a series of eye-catching textiles and ceramics designed by Martha Coates, which reference some of the liberated colours and forms of the 1950s and 60s.

With too many favourites to choose from, I've pulled out my 'Top Swoons' at the end of this post (scroll down), but I'd love to hear about your thoughts on the entire collection...

Top Swoons: 1/ Paco cushion £65 2/ Fenner orange velvet armchair 3/ Visage face vase £25
4/ Zing striped vase £35 5/ Buttons vase £15 6/ Face cushion £40 7/ Eye rug £350
8/ Vera salad bowl £30 9/ Terrazzo table lamp £80

Brit Decor: Wanderlust Decor

I think it's fair to say that Wanderlust is definitely a BIG deal at this time of year, right? The festivities of Christmas and New Year are well and truly behind us and yet we are still in the depths of Winter - how is this fair!? 

So in comes the distraction; Wanderlust

Aside from dreaming of warmer climes and delicious holiday treat food, I also find myself perusing some of the many swoonworthy hotel interiors gracing this beautiful planet, picturing myself gliding through a decadently decorated lobby or lounging on crisply pressed bed sheets...hold those thoughts.

In terms of cocooning, all embracing colour palettes and highly tactile velvets, German Hotel Mauritzhof in MΓΌnster has all the deco luxury a design conscious traveller could need. Warm earthy tones and soothing pastels are punctuated by black + gold detailing in this 4-star design hotel for those high-end creature comforts.

Aptly described as contemporary relaxed luxury, I think my latest wanderlust crush might just become a reality!
