grey: the new neutral

(PICTURE: EMMA WEBSTER)Think neutral, and you generally think tones of beige or taupe. And not so terribly long ago, neutral also connoted those awful ‘white-with-a-hint-of-bleurgh’ shades too. They were a way for those who knew they wanted to go beyond white, but lacked the confidence to graduate to full colour, to add a subtle touch of character to their rooms. Except they never really worked did they? Walls either looked faintly dirty, old or, if you were lucky, slightly tobacco-stained. But the point was, we were all having a go, drinking tentatively at the fountain of colour.So where does grey sit in all this? Well, although in last month’s Trends special issue I stated quite equivocally that we’re seeing the emergence of The New Modern – all exuberance, boldness and…

turkish delights

Ikea’s limited-edition ‘Silkeborg’ kilims are handmade using offcuts from vintage Turkish designs. Sections depicting stripes, roses and medallions, each representing a region of Anatolia, have been cleaned, sheared and their colours neutralised, before being re-dyed in modern hues. Created with Made By People, an initiative improving working conditions for weavers, they are ethical and affordable. From £20 (£650 as pictured; ikea.com).FOR MORE OBJECTS OF DESIRE, VISIT ELLEDECORATION.CO.UK ■…

(WORDS: AMY BRADFORD PICTURE: ALAMY)‘Curated’ is the buzzword of the moment when it comes to homeware collection launches. Creative agency Friends & Co has worked with some of the industry’s best brands, including Iittala and Wrong for Hay, so it was able to tap into some amazing talent when compiling its new edit for Selfridges. The ‘Makes for Selfridges’ range is made up of 13 products by independent British designers, including a mug (£15) and teapot (£70) featuring illustrations of chic shoppers by Charlene Mullen, beech chopping boards by Wiltshire’s Temper Studio (£90) and denim aprons with brass details (£40) by Oliver Harvey, Manchester-based supplier of top chefs’ apparel. Flashes of Selfridges’ signature yellow run throughout (selfridges.com). ■…
