Stemming from the slow food and slow fashion movements, interiors are being adorned with handmade wares produced locally and ethically, supporting the skill and craftsmanship involved in creating these goods.
To achieve this look, seek out textiles with geometric patterns, shibori dyed techniques, block prints or woven stripes. Layer them up on your couch or bed. Choose furniture with exposed wooden frames, rattan or leather features.
Baskets, baskets and more baskets! Hang them on the walls, use them for storage or even lampshades.
Collect ceramics and art from local artists and check out markets and design fairs to see what unique hand made goods you can find. Wellington has a huge wealth of local talent, so get amongst!
