Home Sweet Home Get the Look

One of this year’s key trends is a look that our Ideal Home Show interior design experts have named ‘Home Sweet Home’ because it’s so cosy and homely. The look is perfect all year round because it’s a light and airy look that’s great for summer, but also creates a comfy feeling that's ideal in the winter. It’s not just about Home Sweet Home printed home accessories, although they are key to completing the look. Our Ideal Home Show experts explain how you can get the look in your home below.


Use muted colours

This home interior style is ideal for any room in your home, it will bring some cosy chic style to your living room or transform your bedroom into a romantic boudoir. Start with a colour palette of soft greys, dusky pinks and pastel blues. Muted colours and pastel shades are key to the look – you should avoid any bright colours. Combine muted colours with pretty floral patterns and smart gingham check. Layer textures like throws and cushions, and add in plenty of fresh flowers.


Vintage shabby chic

The Home Sweet Home look is inspired by Vintage shabby chic – a style that never gets old or goes out of fashion. Choose distressed or worn painted furniture, blinds (or shutters for a French feel!) Unfinished or distressed materials like wood and wicker is a great starting point when it comes to furniture. Ornate styling is also a must – chandeliers, vases and ornaments will pull the look together – and don’t forget charming ‘Home Sweet Home’ pictures and artwork with beautiful scripted typography to complete the look
