POM POM EDGE

To dress their bed, Caro­line Latham and her hus­band have opted for a cosy throw, which has been trimmed with large cot­ton pom poms. Both tac­tile and tex­tu­ral, pom poms and tas­sels are ev­ery­where this sea­son. Large or small they are an ex­cel­lent and easy way of cus­tomis­ing and adding char­ac­ter to plain soft fur­nish­ings. Whether you use them in a sub­tle or a bold way, trim­mings can add a sense of fun or an­other layer of lux­ury to a room scheme. A smaller pom pom trim, bought by the me­tre, is a great idea for cus­tomis­ing cush­ions, cur­tains, blinds and pel­mets. Have a look on­line and pick up lots of cre­ative ideas for in­cor­po­rat­ing this hum­ble adorn­ment.

CUSH­ION STORE

The Horners have cre­ated a unique way of stor­ing some of their favourite cush­ions by dis­play­ing them ca­su­ally on a vin­tage lug­gage rack hung on the wall of their sit­ting room. Plump and invit­ing, cush­ions can pull to­gether all the el­e­ments of a room and bring har­mony to a scheme. An­other in­ge­nious way of show­ing off your cush­ions is to dis­play them be­tween the rungs of a sim­ple bam­boo or wood lad­der. Rope hang­ing shelves work equally well for this. Al­ter­na­tively, for a rus­tic touch, in­vest in a large wicker bas­ket into which you can throw ex­tra cush­ions and throws. Or, choose a few cush­ions re­lated by colour and stack them ver­ti­cally on a small arm­chair or cor­ner chair.

PLATES ON DIS­PLAY

A charm­ing col­lec­tion of pretty plates have been hung on the wall of the von Stock­hausens’ el­e­gant din­ing room. This sim­ple yet imag­i­na­tive idea re­ally helps per­son­alise the space. To cre­ate an im­pact, the plates, in har­mo­nious shades of green, have been grouped to­gether to the left of a state­ment mir­ror. An un­der­stated pat­terned wall­pa­per adds fur­ther vis­ual in­ter­est. A pair of large ce­ramic vases and plenty of fresh sea­sonal fo­liage help com­plete the look. Cre­at­ing a dis­play with mis­matched china can make for an equally in­ter­est­ing look. To get the look just right, trace each plate onto some pa­per and cut them out. Then, use your pa­per cut outs to work out the ar­range­ment you like best.
