Interiors Update: Print Clash by Henry Holland for Habitat

House+of+Holland+X+Habitat+collectionHenry Holland’s collaboration with Habitat hit stores last week, giving us all a salutary lesson in how to make an entrance in the process. It can be summed up thusly: “just go for it”. Which is, incidentally, what the charming Henry told me was his top decorating tip when I met him to preview the collection for the day job (you can read all about it in the June issue of Glamour, btw – and we even throw in some excellent stealing-hotel-style-tips from Emily of The Pink House).

It’s a bijou collection, inspired by the psychedelic madness of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. As much as I love the cheerful madness of it en masse (and such attention to detail – check out the little bugs scurrying over those cushions), I think I might – for day-to-day living – limit myself somewhat.

Maybe to one of these cushions thrown onto my NEW SOFA (when it arrives). The Tropical Leaf (£60) is  splash of pink joy – although I suspect my children would much prefer Buggin (£35) – and why not? I suspect it might work rather well. [Update: I showed my daughter and she loves them both and declared it “too hard. There’s too much choice!” Such is life, my little one.]

In essence, what we have learned here, folks, is that fortune favours the bold. And that clashing your prints is a good, good thing. The more the merrier. A lesson I shall endeavour to recall when I am faced with our new sofa and the Cushion Possibilities.

    Thanks for the shout out! Embrace the Cushion Possibilities we say – if you need more temptation, we at The Pink House are more than happy to help. Maybe start with Furbish Studio then move onto Quirk & Rescue…xx
