It has been a good while since I've had the pure JOY of writing on here with the gang, but I am super excited to kick start 2015 with a good shake up and a bit of design inspiration, all for your viewing pleasure of course...
SO here we are, another year just poofed by! Christmas is but a distant, merry (and slightly hungover) dream and we're ready to start thinking about spring and summer trends. Which, if you ask me just doesn’t feel quite right whilst I am still living in a onesie and the contents of my fridge consist of ingredients which could only be useful in a stew, leftover cranberry sauce and random bottles of leftover wine that I couldn’t quite let go of… yet!
However, once I dragged myself to my computer to start gathering trend ideas, I soon began to get very excited indeed. You see 2015 has some GREAT design trends that will bring you out of your Christmas coma and make you want to dye your hair lilac and go buy a cactus stat!
So here you go, welcome to 2015 folks!
First we have this lovely trend that is a mixture of Spring and Summer in one if you ask me! Everyone loves a good bloomage, especially if this is teamed with a vintage look and some excellent illustration skills...

I love this style because it reminds me of what pictures look like in a 70s Summer… everything looks just slightly worn yet the colours are almost edible they are that yummy!
We all know how big Terrariums where last year, and I believe Botanical Blooms to just be a continuation of this. Our love for flowers is teamed with a want for us all to get back to nature and the feel of summer sunshine on our freckled faces. I expect to see this type of style everywhere, with a deliberate vintage look that makes everything seem as though it has been ripped out of an old library book called ‘Cacti, nature’s Punks,’ or ‘How to grow your own edible shrubbery...’ You know, that type of thing.
For use in your own designs, look to adding floral illustrations and patterns along side nice quotes and layered over pretty pictures. Pick a theme or a few related plants perhaps in a group, spend your time on the drawings and pretty colour palette the range will design itself!
