With natural olive shades and muted undertoneslinen sheets, eucalyptus is a more natural progression of Pantone’s colour of the year. Visually present in terms of colour influence around Australia, this modern interpretation is a natural compliment to any home. When styling, pair with levels of grey, deep carbon hues and dark charcoal to reflect the unique scenery of some of Australia’s most picturesque places.

Work eucalyptus into your space

Mirroring the tonal shades of the great Australian bushland, layer our Townsend Cushion in Eucalyptus with a mixture of darker cushions to bring this trend into the living room. Made with a classic striped woven design, this cushion features large oversized tassels for a playful look.

To bring nature into the bedroom, start with our Nashe Quilt sheet in carbon for a moody feel. Layer with the Earley throw in Eucalyptus for added texture. This cosy knitted throw is crafted with subtle tonal yarn for a speckled marl effect. Not only will these layered colours elevate your sleep space, but the contrasting textures work to mimic the natural Australian landscape.

For a more subtle approach, consider welcoming our Earley European Pillowcases into your home. This simple cushion can be displayed anywhere from your bedroom to lounge. Pair against cool neutrals or levels of whites to allow this beautiful colour to take centre stage.

Our Australian landscape is unique to anywhere else in the world, with inspiring colours just outside our doors. Welcome nature into your home and allow this muted colour trend to bring a sense of relaxation and quiet elegance to your interiors.

Who says interiors have to be immaculate and considered fully decorated to give it the wow factor. Plain ivory or white walls can be given an informal chic style simply by resting a large picture against it – perfect if you don't want to start banging picture hooks into wall plaster which may not be that stable.

Hello there! I am so excited to show you how to make your very own West Elm knock off Bentwood Pendant today! I had been swooning over West Elm's Bentwood Pendant Lights for months, but I just could not bring myself to spend $189 on one for our family room. I had to figure out a way to make one for myself. After A LOT of head scratching, I finally figured it out and LOVE the results.

For many people, textiles are an overwhelming passion. A chair may be an object of sculptural beauty, but a textile holds more tactile appeal. And, with their woven or printed patterns, textiles demand to be considered thoughtfully, as if contemplating a painting for its use of colour or ingenuity of composition. Strangely enough though, textiles and rugs are often wrongly viewed as the poor relations of larger or bulkier household items like furniture or lighting.
