Keeping it in the Small Details
First of all, Living Coral is a great colour to embellish your home with- commitment free is the way forward! Here are some products we love, and think would be a fab feature in any size home.
As an independent business, we believe it’s important to support other independent businesses- if you don’t water the flowers, they don’t grow and all. Plus, handmade, original items are great at making a home look personal and cosy.
Starting off with small features, this cute cone shaped ring holder. Handmade by etsy seller KateCharltonCeramics, every piece is a unique one off. Ideal for holding your gems and jewels and looks great while doing it! Imagine this on your bedside table, or in the backdrop of your bathroom.

Swoon worthy Soft Furnishings
Before you run to the DIY store to fill up a trolley with tins of paint- remember making a statement is just as effective! Using soft furnishings is a great way to transition between trends and seasons, without committing to real hard work.
For example, this gorgeous coral coloured printed cushion. Using illustrated seahorses by Catherine Rowe, thimakes an individual touch to a couch. Also, if you’re obsessing as much over the quaint print as much as we are, it’s also available in a made to order wallpaper print.
