Tie-dye making an appearance on wallpapers, love-bird cushions and the mackerel collection of ceramics have caught the eye of Esther N McCarthy this week.
Tie-dye is back, people. On the catwalks, Prada, Stella McCartney, Chloé and Dior are all about the acid washes and we’re seeing the trend in interiors too. This bold collection of wall designs is by MuralsWallpaper, pictured here is one from the Peace and Festival collection, are €39.90 per square metre, find out more at www.muralswallpaper.co.uk
There’s a new range of showers in B&Q at the moment, the Mira Decor collection of electric showers. Moving away from ‘white box’ that homeowners with a cold water main may have been stuck with before, Mira has designed the range to offer a solution with the luxury of distinctive finishes and a 200mm deluge overhead rain shower.
The Decor is available in single (from £190) and dual outlet options (from £330). The range comes in three distinctive finishes; White, Warm Silver and Black Onyx. Products are available in selected B&Q and Screwfix stores nationwide.
Cork ceramicist Charlie Mahon handcrafts his pottery from white earthenware clay. We love his mackerel collection, the fish are hand-drawn and all kiln-fired in Cork. See more at https://charliemahon.ie/
