As we all know, trends come and go, we love them then hate them, and then they all come back around again.
But, one interiors trend that seems to be firmly embedded in our interiors psyche is tribal style,…and we’re not talking Sixth Form trips to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford here!
With statement pieces that are so easy to incorporate into the home, this season sees some of the best offerings yet.
What’s more, with high street chains doing the hard work for us, you needn’t think twice before picking up that aztec inspired woven basket or monochrome appliqued cushion, wondering if it will look good alongside your neutral linen Laura Ashley sofa or velvet armchair from Loaf.
The secret to incorporating this style effortlessly into your home, without tribal overload, is choosing your pieces carefully.
For instance, these gorgeous hand-crafted ‘Zig-Zag Tribe’ Mugs from House of Fraser, £6 each, would add ample aztec style to a simple white kitchen or the mere hint of these artisanal napkins, £15 for a set of four, will create instant wow factor at the dinner table. A geometric throw, also from House of Fraser, will instantly pep up a tired looking armchair or sofa.
Yet, if you want to indulge in your fun side with the addition of a few quirky ornaments or vases, this gorgeous grey Cactus Ornament, £30 from House of Fraser, will certainly provide a talking point.
Or keep with the monochrome theme and a hint of aztec design with this show-stopping tribal inspired vase, from £25, from the Abigail Ahern / EDITON collection at Debenhams.
Either way, it’s about choosing the focus within the home – adding feature vases to open shelving, a smattering of cushions and throws to give your sofa a whole new look; an aztec inspired rug will turn your living room style on it’s head in one fell swoop; or impress your guests with on-trend dinner table styling, subtly adding hints of tribal style where the mood takes you…
