Trending: artisanal interiors
The year’s biggest interiors trend? It’s all about artisanal. Touches of tribal influence are mixed with soft neutrals, sun-dried colours and simple rattan accessories to create a look that has some real staying power in our homes. Here’s how to do it yourself.

Pick out pops of print
Bear with us, all you print-phobics. If you’ve previously dismissed the tribal trend in fear of playing with pattern, you’ll welcome the softer, sun-dried shades in this season’s twist. You can add as much or as little print as you like, using earthy tones to balance brighter hues.
But print and colour don’t have to go hand-in-hand. Case in point: this tactile geometric bedspread. It adds visual detail, but the splash of white keeps the set up feeling fresh. And if you’re a print lover? A layered bed is the perfect place to mix and match to your heart’s content.
Mix and match textures
Artisanal accessories are all about texture, and our design team have sourced a patchwork of global techniques, from hand-stitching to tassels and fringing. Alongside the earthy russet and turmeric tones, these tactile embellishments add their own welcome warmth.
And it’s not all about textiles. We’re embraced the rattan revival, and this simple pendant light and set of lanterns (bonus points if you mix and match different sizes) provide perfect balance for bolder print. Plants add texture too - we love a spikey cactus to nod to that sun-soaked feel.
Focus on form
When it comes to ceramics, shapes are simple and relaxed but not sleek, and anything that’s hand-crafted, hand-fired or hand-finished gets top marks. We love the idea that these pieces tell a story, and it can feel like you’re almost meeting the maker.
It’s all about finding the beauty in imperfection, so look for those little variations that make artisanal ceramics unique – it might be a set that aren’t quite the same, an uneven rim or a rather rustic glaze. Colour is often simple, as mixing similar shades will keep a unique collection feeling curated.
