I took the pulse @ Pulse (interior design accessories and gift fair @ Earls Court 2 in London) yesterday. I was suitably dressed in neon yellow and black. Skirt and leggins from Topshop last summer, scarf from Primark, jacket this season/HM. Bag, a bargain at Bicester outlet last year and finally my beloved Palladiums, another bargain at a sale!

Birds and muted colours for this autumn. Birds has become very popular as a pattern on walls, interior items and fabrics! From sparrows to pheasants.

Neon and patterns on garden tools! These ones you can find at V&A!

Raw materiels and neon felt new and inaugarating. I was immediately drawn to this stand and it turned out to be a Swedish girls design (I am Swedish if you did not already know that). The wood is cut by her uncle in Dalarna in Sweden (her design) and then handpainted by Lotta Cole herself!

More Neon....it started last year and now it is everywhere! Nice for stationery...I love the distressed looking variety in the middle!

Mixed patterns. Not only in fashion and cushions...the time has come to stationery etc...

Retro and birds. The retro trend is still going strong. We love it when the world is so unsettled. Birds again on enamel in red and green.

 This French young company felt new and different. The way that they mixed modern patterns and neon with retro and rustic surfaces had a new approch to the earlier take on retro patterns by Cath Kidston etc...
More from the young French. Mixed patterns, neons and a bit of retro. A modern take on the classic beach hut.

Urbanbird.co.uk. Here we have all of the trends in one little stand. Retro, flowers, mix of patterns, birds and neon. The designer herself in a matching outfit.

More retro, with a lot of inspiration from the 70-ies. Again, a mix of patterns, birds and strong colours. Sweet! Chloe Owens.com.

We love retro. From wallpaper to gift bags and containers.

A different and stunning way of displaying china. Hang them from a tree on the wall. Birds again! And china in lovely muted pastels.

Another retro trend is damask patterns that we usually find on wallpaper and fabrics. Here on staionery, lovely and eclectic at the same time. Mix it up with a bit of gold for the right glamorous touch.

Damask here found on these marvellously crazy platforms from Kurt Geiger!

More damask, girly and tough at the same time. Kurt Geiger again.

Retro, neon and patterns. Updated designs from the 60-ies and 70-ies in bolder colours. Mixes fine with vintage furniture and modern sofas is grey. Happy!

Text and vintage. A lovely combination! Letters and numbers has been around now for a while but still feels refreshing and fun. Here in a more vintage take.

And finally. Text, retro, a mix of fonts and neon. All at once. I love how old and new mixes and turns into something refreshingly different and stunning.
