Home Style: Bunting Love

I always thought that bunting was twee and cute, and whilst my girls like it, it’s not something I wanted to use in my home.

But, styles and trends have moved forward quite a lot in recent years and bunting has become cool again. Whether you’re looking for something retro, minimal or creative, there are lots of ways you can use bunting in your home, and not only across the fireplace.

How about making your own? If you own a Cricut, or a die cutting machine, you could use paper or patterned card printed with your favourite letters, words or message. It’s a great way to personalise your home and make something special for you and your family.

You could even use an online banner maker.

I love the monochrome effect of this sweet paper stars. Wouldn’t this be great for a child’s party or bedroom? Or even for your living room walls.

If you’re after an injection of colour though, and are feeling creative with some wool, why not go for these pompoms in this banner, perfect for anywhere in the home. My daughter has learned how to make these recently and I’m finding them everywhere in her room. They’re very retro but bang on trend at the moment – anyone else remember them from the 70’s!

I obviously have a thing for typography styled banner, and how cool is this more traditionally styled example? Made from the pages of Pride and Prejudice, it’s ideal for book lovers amongst you, and would look great strewn on the wall above some colourful wall art.

Finally, you know how I have a thing for Scandi styling, and this image caught my eye recently on Pinterest. Stunning bunting used a Christmas (or any time of the year) to great effect.

So are you a bunting fan? Have I convinced you that it’s turned a corner? If you want to create something larger though, with more impact, perhaps for a garden party in the Spring, it’s worth checking out a company like Aura Print for PVC banners, which can be tailored exactly to your needs. I’m fed up of the Winter now, and thinking more and more about spending time outdoors. Planning a garden party is the perfect excuse.
