As someone who has stuck resolutely to vintage Sixties furniture for decades – even when living in a Tudor thatched cottage –  I can’t really say that I follow interiors trends too closely. But even I’ve noticed that nature is taking a starring role this year – whether it’s using natural materials such as woods, wicker, cottons and wools, or animal and insect motifs.

I’m slowly collecting my favourite bits, some of which are here…

doug johnston bathroom basket £105Loving this navy and white woven basket from Doug Johnston (£105, The Conran Shop), and also this simple jute lamp (£39.99 Zara Home) which has coastal retreat written all over it.

zarahome£69.99A gorgeously bright and vibrant cushion that looks ten times more expensive than its price tag (£7, Cargo)

Birdy Applique Cushion 40 x 40 cm_ _7_00

Gorgeous kids wooden furniture, including Ercol design classics, reupholstered and repainted in classic the Farrow & Ball on the Muddy Stilettos Boutique

Grey group 800x800

Covered group 800x800
I absolutely love these terracotta jugs from Fade Interiors in Woodstock (from £14)


Something totally summery and happy about this cotton weave rug from Habitat (on sale at £120):


Bright, bold and fun lampshades (various) from Liscious in Summertown


And just to finish it off, because my mouse is twitching to buy, how about this piece of cuteness from Scandi-chic, available at FROM in Thame (£45)?

Happy shopping!
