I was just saying the other day on the blog that the coastal interior is being reinvented.We're moving away from those more nautical influences like anchors, blue and white stripes and boats, and embracing a more tropical, lush and zesty aesthetic (think palm trees and mojitos).
You know how they say that fashion and homewares trends are on a cycle (going away and then returning years later)? Well, Shibori first hit about 4000 years ago, so it's safe to say that it's ready for a comeback, right?
I first encountered Sanctuary Boutique Linens at this year’s Life Instyle trade show. Their dynamic Black Skulls & Roses pillow cases - which adorned a bed they’d set up in their stall - caught my eye from miles away.
As I got closer to the stall and realised that they’d paired the pillowcases with a diamond-print flat sheet and equally stunning quilt, I wanted to run in slow motion toward the bed like a scene from a movie, dive in and declare it ‘the one’.
It's time to start thinking about spring bedroom ideas. August is upon us already, which means winter is one month away from being a distant memory. And with the cold snap that's been sweeping the country, sunny Spring weather could not come sooner.
