Homespun Style, Selina Lake

Homespun Style

Just like fashion, interiors styles go in cycles. We’ve had minimalism; we’ve done neutrals; we’re slightly over our love affair with grey. So it’s time for something completely different! We’re ditching serious, understated schemes, in favour of colour, pattern and bags of personality.

Spotting this trend for unpretentious, colourful, crafty interiors, Selina Lake put together Homespun Style. Together with photographer Debi Treloar, Selina sourced and shot homes as far afield as Norway, Sweden, France and Denmark, as well as in the UK. Each one shares a love of colour - whether splashed abundantly across walls or used to punctuate an all-white scheme. Upcycled and repaired pieces that are bursting with character, sometimes set alongside design classics, are another feature of the homespun home. Anyone can give an old wooden chair a bright coat of paint. Experimentation is key - simply get stuck in! 
You might be surprised how easy it is to create something gorgeous and unique.
Most importantly - enjoy yourself! With an open mind, a dash of imagination and a sense of fun, you can take any home from humdrum to homespun in a flash.
