Trending: Not so mellow yellow


CHIRALI bedspread from TOAST

From geometric neon at Louis Vuitton to zingy florals at Moschino, yellow has become the go-to hue for Spring/Summer 13.

AKERKULLA textiles from IKEA

Scandi meets savvy with the new AKERKULLA textiles range from IKEA. It’s a refreshing take on traditional Swedish patterns and you can even by the fabric by the metre if you’re not wanting to go the whole hog.

OWL CUSHION, Donna Wilson

Bring to life those boring broderie anglaise bed sheets with a vibrant wool cushion by Donna Wilson, the go-to lady when it comes to quirky home accessories and gifts.


BUCKET CHAIR, Urban Outfitters
