I'm a proud brand ambassador for Graham + Brown which means that every month I introduce you to Graham & Brown's home trends offering ideas to help style your home with their range of wallpapers and home accessories. They have spectacular ranges, all fantastic quality too - and their wallpapers are a breeze to work with.
A trend that sees tranquil colours and luxury textures introduced inside the home. Horizon is all about focal points in a room bringing the outdoors in and it's influenced by nature all around us - from lapping oceans and seaside themed interiors, to cosy wood and wicker rooms inspired by fields and forests.
Nature has a huge part to play in interior design, and if at times you're looking at a room (maybe in your own house or a clients) feeling like something isn't quite sitting right, it's usually that there isn't enough nature inside it. Think about plants, silks, woods, wicker and texture when you're decorating and don't be afraid to add elements of outdoor detail.
I try to introduce elements of colour and design from country walks Neil and I regularly go on. In our living room we have lots of wicker baskets and a bare brick fireplace we are soon to install a wood burner inside. Whilst in my bedroom, since it's been in the middle of a redecoration phase (see the before and after shots here) it's lacked a certain je ne sais quoi. So I've introduced these beautiful silk-like Meadow cushions to temporarily give the room more colour and life.
They have a really beautiful piping detail of purple around the edges, and the watercolour splashes of purple and yellow remind me of evening light and country drives.
If you're less of a country bumpkin and more of a city girl, Graham + Brown have some really iconic wall art that would suit more modern looks. From urban landscapes made from water colour to cute framed pug pictures (I love these), there's lots of ways you can bring nature in to a home if you aren't brave enough to go all out with nature inspired wallpaper. But of course, if you're on the market for a statement wall, you've got to check out the new Honolulu Palm Green print that is so on trend at the mo.
It's National Wallpaper Week from the 5th-11th October so stay tuned for more G+B love really soon.
