Folk Tales, the mini trend

Just when you saw Autumn looming we’ve got the perfect mini trend to pep up dull days. Folk designs have been on the interiors horizon for a while now, but these intense patterns have once again been enjoying the limelight.



Forever producing eye-catching and quirky collections, Paper Tiles from Louise Body is no exception. Inspired by Victorian floor tiles they are naturally suited to the kitchen, but look just as at home with other mix and match patterns in a living or bedroom.



Use browns and greys with earthy shades of colour to give warmth to a room without overwhelming any existing hues. These simple, elegant choices from Zoffany and Lewis & Wood carry off the folk trend with an informal, relaxed look that’s sure to last the ages.



Combine simple geometric designs with the more intricate details of paisleys to keep fabric patterns balanced. Andrew Martin have produced an indulgent paisley print on velvet, mixing sumptuous materials with a hint of faded folk. Upholster a favourite armchair in this and you’ll have updated furniture with a sensitive, modern touch.



If this trend seems right up your street then embrace the look with a splash of vibrant colour to make the most of this Eastern European, retro style. Cushions lend themselves perfectly to bright fabrics and could even be different each side for an eclectic flair.
