Bring the Outside In
Not so much a trend, but more of a necessity! With a lot more of us permanently working from home now, having greenery and plants indoors has been proven to boost our mood. Large green plants go with pretty much every colour scheme and a simple way to update your decor is to update the pot they sit in (then use the old one for a new plant!).
Make it sustainable: look in your local community for people who give away cuttings from their plants or do it yourself for other people! If you’re ordering online, make sure you use a company who has a positive impact on the planet such as Patch Plants.
A big trend on TikTok, charity shopping has had a major overhaul in the last few years and it’s not about to stop. Buying second hand means less demand for newer, fast-fashion pieces in the clothes and interior industry. Think vintage furniture, second hand accessories and upcycling. At Stitched we offer an Upcycled Cotton fabric and an Upcycled Silk fabric which are made from ‘waste’ fibres that other companies would discard. The result? Beautiful curtains + blinds that come guilt-free.
Make it sustainable: if you do invest in new or vintage furniture, make sure you either sell-on or donate your old pieces so they can have a second life. No matter how old or worn they may be to you, there are a lot of creative people out there who will definitely find a use for it!
