Introducing, Regenerative Living
Living Intentionally is all about getting back to natural tones, natural fibres and creating an earthy atmosphere in the home, ultimately connecting our inner worlds with our outer worlds.
Anchoring this trend is colour and texture. Earthy and natural tones, as well as spicy and warm hues are definitely the colour direction of the season. Google search terms for “terracotta bedrooms” have seen an increase of 11% year on year, inspiring us to recreate this colour-blocking with our natural wools and rich timbers in flooring and layer with natural bed linen, terracotta tiles and chunky pottery.
Why wool? Wool carpets are made from the finest natural wool fibres, which are renewable and biodegradable.
Wool carpet is also naturally insulative with humidity control for a comfortable indoor environment, making it cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Wool carpets are naturally luxurious and hypoallergenic making them both aesthetic and suitable for those with allergies. They are also soft to touch evoking a positive sensory experience.

Timber flooring is a great amplifier to include in your home, as no two timber boards are the same.
Each board is built up of their own knots and grains, making it as unique and as natural as can be. This gives a regenerative and authentic feel to your home, attributing to this trend.

How can you promote Regenerative Living in the home?
Introduce nourishing colours in your furniture, décor and even wallpapers too. For example, statistics have shown that from year-to-year, Pinterest searches in the UK have shown that ‘terracotta wall colour’ is up 29% from the previous year.
The trend is showing that warmer, earthier tones are consistently growing in homes as of late, specifically the brown and desert inspired colours in textiles, decorative objects and large furnishings.
We are recommending the use of deep spiced tones to contemporary furnishings and the use of tonal colour-blocking to ornamental elements, while seeing depth being layered through glass objects or lacquered surfaces.
