January is often a time for reflection and dreaming of new possibilities. Many people make New Year's resolutions and set goals for the year.
My first goal for 2017 was to open with a fresh new look and to complete the last part of our re-branding process. As you might have noticed, the shop was closed between Christmas and New Year so that we could refurbish and refresh, ready for a new start and we are super pleased with the result! We would love to know what you think so do pop in and have a peak.
If you are getting married this year, we are very much inspired by the colour and floral trends for 2017. Neutral tones with bright accents of colour are proving to be popular. Soft creams and greys paired with golds, glass and metalics are also a great way of adding a little luxury and glamour to your big day. There will also be a focus on garlands and archways as brides and grooms are looking to create extra special entrances to their days and photo opportunities for guests.
Foliages are also making waves and setting trends for interiors. Greenery has been named the 2017 Pantone colour of the year and is said to represent refreshment and revitalisation providing a calming background to living with our ever-increasing reliance on technology. We are visiting interior and gift fairs in both London and Birmingham during January and February and looking to bring in new suppliers for you to accessorise your home and find bright new gift ideas for all those special occasions.
