July and August are busy months for the interior industry. It kicks off with the buying and trend event the Décor + Design fair followed by Life in Style and then the Melbourne Gift Fair. You may have seen from Instagram that my sister (Head of Marketing for Cranmore Home & Co) and I headed down to attend the trade shows and see what’s happening in the industry - what products are coming out and to scout any new, exciting brands for you guys. One of the biggest homewares online trends we found was that it’s all about bedding!
Top bedding trends 2022/2023
From what we saw, people still want cosiness and to make their home a private sanctuary. Most brands where sharing collections featuring warm Autumnal colour palettes and lots of texture. Don’t worry, there are pops of colour, but it’s all about getting the neutral base right.
Layering is still king – we saw cushion upon cushion upon cushion nestled on top of luxuriously soft bedspreads and quilt covers. In terms of style there was a real mix of boho coastal, contemporary, and sleek modern. Most often than not, these styles were seen working all together to create the ultimate sleep space.
With Spring on the way, there were lighter materials being used and an introduction of blues, lemons, coral, and whites across all tones. These delicious sorbet colours work really well with current colour trends such as creams, greens, browns, navy and terracotta.
NEW bedding products
We’re excited to introduce two new brands into the Cranmore Home & Co family. The first one being WEAVE. Their products are designed locally by in house designers across Australia and New Zealand with a huge emphasis on quality fabrics. This makes sense when you realise that Weave is a sub brand of Australia's leading wholesale fabric house Warwick Fabrics.
Sarah and I fell in love with the textures and touch of each of their cushion covers and their new Ravello linen bedding collection. It was hard to choose what to feature for Cranmore Home & Co as everything is stunning.
Made from luxurious 100% French Flax linen, their bed sets offer a superior softness from being prewashed and aero finished. The Ravello bedding range is the perfect addition in building a calm environment and inspiring complete respite in the bedroom without losing relaxed sophistication.
The second brand I’m thrilled to say we are stocking now is Walter G. We met with the beautiful duo Lauren & Genevieve who I have been following for years now. Taking inspiration from old textiles and new surroundings, they work closely with a wonderful team of artisans in Rajasthan to collaboratively produce a tactile range of hand block and mud printed fabrics.
Each cushion cover is hand printed using ancient block printing techniques. Handed down from generation to generation the process starts with a unique design being carved ever so precisely into the block and then pressed into fabric by hand over and over to create the perfect repetition.
Completely different to the styles you will find within the Weave collection, Walter G provides a vintage inspired pop of colour and texture to your bedroom or living space.
For those of you that love something a little more whimsical, we have now restocked the gorgeous sustainable bedding sets from Amanda and Tracey at Lazybones. I love seeing them at Life in Style each year to brighten up my day. Lazybones create pieces from sustainable fabrics and fibres that have a little nostalgia and ladylike feel to them.
