I've been thinking about my blog content recently as I'm conscious it's been very baby-focused since Oliver arrived. I write about things that are on my mind and as you can see, it's been baby 24/7. Now that I'm more on top of things and we're back to a somewhat normal life (well, our new 'normal'), I want to get back to writing about my other love .. interiors! I have so many home and interiors posts for you over the next few weeks and I'm looking forward to sharing all the home updates I've made over the last few months.
Today's post fits in well with interiors making a comeback on my blog. It's a collaboration with Fenetic Wellbeing, a mobility company providing customers with healthcare and mobility products to meet their individual needs, as part of their Interior Wellbeing campaign. Styling your home isn't just about the aesthetics - your home needs to work for you and your family too whether that's making it child friendly, mobility friendly or even having a dedicated office space where you can work in peace.
Today I'm sharing some of my favourite interior trends for this year, and how you can incorporate purpose furniture, such as recliner chairs, into your home while keeping it stylish and modern.
The easiest way to keep your home modern and on-trend, in my opinion, is to keep the furniture neutral. Think white, beige, tan, black - colours like this allow you to easily change your whole room decor just by throwing in a few new cushions, a rug, throw or hanging new art on the walls. These riser reclining chairs are available in all the easy neutrals which will allow you to do just that, making your furniture the perfect 'base' for an ever-changing decor, while still being super practical for your family and their needs.
One of my favourite trends for this year is colourful patterns. I'm a neutral decor kind of girl, but I do love to add a pop of colour in there somewhere. If you're extra brave, mixing bright patterns is a new trend for 2017 and can give so much depth to a room if done in the right way. Pom poms are everywhere too and although I was sceptical at first, I'm definitely on board with a bit of pom pom detailing this year.
A 'trend' that's just slightly updated every year is wood in the home. I love having different tones of wood throughout my house - in the flooring, furnishings and with different accessories and ornaments. Don't shy away from mixing different types and colours of wood together - I find doing this can actually make two pieces really compliment each other and stand out.
What are your favourite home trends for this year?
