On-Trend Knits for the Home
If you thought knitted items for the home equalled ‘old fashioned’, it’s time to think again. Home knits are big news on the high street and these days they’re all about being bright, bold and modern.
Whether you’re looking to add texture to a room, inject a pop of colour or create something tactile to snuggle up to on cool winter evenings, an on-trend knit could be your style solution – and we’re not just talking throws and cushions (as lovely as they are).
If, like us, you love to bring the outside in, a woven basket makes a fab alternative to a traditional plant pot for your favourite Yukka. Go for a comfy focal point in your living room with a chunky pouffe, see the light with a lace-stitch lampshade or add some quirky character to a room and embrace the ever-popular woodland theme with a cute knitted owl doorstop. Recreate a retro vibe with macramé-style hanging plant holders and funky extreme-knit footstool covers, or create a cosy feel with over-sized knitted floor cushions and rugs. And don’t forget the ever-practical chunky knit storage basket – turn your clutter into a style statement!
Whatever your skill level, recreating high street looks to suit your décor is surprisingly achievable – and rewarding. Once you’ve chosen your pattern and yarn, concentrate on bringing together a colour palette that works for your look. Go rustic with oranges, browns, creams and layered throws and cushions; channel Scandi Hygge with a few statement pieces in bright white and splashes of colour, or go for a bang-on-trend minimalist style with chunky knits in greys and dusky pink tones paired with rose gold accessories. Then just snuggle down and bask in the glow of knowing you’ve created something unique and lovely.
