Less tech, more texture – get engaged with your surroundings this summer CONNECTION

12 3 It comes as no surprise that we’re all a little
too reliant on technology but realistically,
who can give up their phone for a weekend?
Defo not us; how would we know where to
meet for huevos rancheros? So instead we’re
compromising and embracing texture not
tech (see what we did there?) for the summer
to create a home haven that might inspire
us to put the phones down for at least an
hour at a time. Think raw-finished fabrics and
furniture with an organic, hand-crafted feel
- so lots of wicker, lots of leafy planters and
oodles of free-spirited prints. What you don’t
want? Screens, no matter how wide or how
flat, or sockets to recharge. Grab a summer
bestseller, curl up and recharge - yourself.
