Every year Notting Hill Carnival brings West London to life, thanks to the sounds and smells of Europe’s biggest street festival. Held each August Bank Holiday since 1966, the carnival promises everything from delicious West-Indian cuisine to colourful headdresses and parades.

When we think of carnivals, we think of the colour, energy and joy they bring. With the vibrancy that inspires happiness and excitement, why not let go of your inhibitions and bring the party to your interiors?

Accessories are a great way to bring the carnival spirit into your home, these cushions are ideal for introducing sparks of refreshing greens and vibrant yellows. Alternatively, try out these colourful tealight candles to subtly mimic the metallic carnival style.



Another fantastic way you can bring the party into your home is by using colours from our Feature Wall range to introduce stunning shades that pop. Perfect for those who are daring with colour, create unique, on-trend space using Cuban Heat with Lime Green matt emulsion.
