As per usual, the Great British Summer is letting us down… So it’s high time we tried to beat the blues with some injections of colour from around the interiors world. You know us, ear to the ground and all that, so we’ve put a little list together of the brightest and boldest that are getting us excited this July.

Twin-Tone Cushions by Lane

British homewares brand Lane launches its first range of Twin Tone Cushions. Available in four colour combinations, these little beauties hit close to home for Mark, as they’re made with 100% wool in tweed from Bute Fabrics – based on the beautiful island of Bute, Scotland. They’re one of Britain’s most respected upholstery manufacturers, so we’re sure this collaboration will be a match made in heaven with the creative geniuses at Lane.

Head to Lane’s website to find out more and shop these amazing cushions, which are priced at £65.00 – not bad for such amazing quality!

It’s not just taupe from Kelly Hoppen

The indomitable force that is Kelly Hoppen is known for her neutrals and taupes, but it’s time to shake away that  preconception with the arrival of more beautiful Home Jewellery from This summer, she’s opted for some monochrome tones – and before you say this isn’t colourful – the vases and jars are the perfect vessels for summer flowers.

Why not place peonies in white vases or simple ferns in a black & white variation? Either way these will create stunning statements in your home. Don’t get too hung up on the way they are presented online either, it’s how you style it that’s important. Shop the collection here at
