Online pre-loved homeware store, Stone & Sage, is back with the top summer homeware trends to look out for.
I caught up with Sophie from Stone & Sage to discuss her favourite items at the moment, what she’s been finding in local antique shops and small brands she loves.
Top summer homeware trends
Consumers are beginning to consider the environmental impact of their purchases. This has made vintage and preloved items very on trend for the summer season (and hopefully long beyond it!).
As we all know, trends are circular. You can bet that this season’s trends will have been around before, so shopping from vintage and preloved shops like Stone & Sage is a great option. You’ll not only be helping the environment but giving a once treasured item a new lease of life.
Move over copper, it’s all about brass this season. Mix metallics in your home for a modern look. You can find lots of stunning brass items in Stone & Sage’s online store – from teapots to wine jugs, vases to decorative ornaments.
Many people are taking time away from their screens to return to traditional hobbies. This is probably why embroidery, crochet and macramé are seeing a real resurgence in 2019. Stone & Sage has some framed embroideries that date back to the 40s/50s!
Just because it’s the summer, that doesn’t mean that hygge has faded from the trends! The definition of Hygge is to “create a sense of cosiness that builds contentment and wellbeing”. It’s all about having a little ‘me’ time for relaxation.
Sophie has created a range of Hygge boxes that will help you to recharge during the busy summer season. They each have a theme, for example nature, and include a Space mask, brooch by Studio Tokek, card, tea, natural soap from Myrtle & Soap, candle from Lost in Scent and an Observer book.
Pop the kettle on, run a bath, pop on your face mask and make some time for yourself.
Shopping from small and local businesses is something that many people (myself included!) are becoming more interested in. Supporting other small, local businesses is incredibly important to me and is a big part of Stone & Sage’s brand.
Sophie has collaborated with a number of small businesses including Studio Tokek for unique, handmade brooches. She has also collaborated with Lost in Scent to stock soy wax candles and Myrtle & Soap for natural cosmetics such as whipped lip balm, facial oil, lotion and soap.
Florals & botanicals
Of course, florals are popular during the summer months, but this season you will find blue and white pattern florals and hand painted designs to be the most up to date trend. Keep looking out for those fern and palm patterns as they seem to be sticking around for the long haul.
Hanging baskets tie in with the floral and botanical trend and look beautiful inside or outside of the home. Choose a hanging basket and fill it with a mix of plants and decorative items for a feature piece. Use other types of baskets to gather books and magazines or fill with the kid’s toys.
