The Snowdrops have just pushed through the thin layer of snow in our garden, and with it being a New Year/fresh start (yadda yadda) I thought I would put together a little mood inspo for the current popular colour choice of, white. Such a basic, plain colour, but one that can be instantly transformed. Whether it be dulled down with raw textures, or accented with bold accessories; white isn't just white, it's the starting point.

Fluffy woven Berber rugs are one of my favourite Moroccan inspired homewares, and what better way to feature them than in a Winter white post. Similarly, Kilim rugs and soft accessories have influenced the new 'Nordic Ethnic' interior style, and have contributed to new design approaches such as these Kilim cushions by Ferm Living. The woven patterns represent traditional crafted techniques but are updated with a monochrome, blocky design.

One home accessory to encourage your 'fresh start' is the recycled Le Sac En Papier. This trendy storage alternative resembles a 3 dimensional poster - just a white paper sack and simplistic typography, it's all perfect. I also like the idea of using it as a planter; contrasted against deep leafy greens, the combination works brilliantly. I've been having a lot of cold beach days at the minute (but to be honest they always are in Berwick) so coming home to a thick woven throw and a roaring fire is a January necessity. Another essential is the  Kiyoko lip balm, it is 100% natural and organic, and beautifully simple in it's branded design. Just what you need for January's chapped lips.

I've featured Studio Esinam before and I'm going to do it again: the delicate black and white architectural interpretations of some of the most unique cities in the world, is all you need in a complete white interior. No colour, just plain white and Esinam lines. Yes please.

Whatever your white, it's a 2015 favourite and for me, I like it at it's rawest; textured accessories, complimented with grey/concrete tones for an overall cold, grungy white. A lot like January really.
