Adding finishing touches
The easiest way to make your home your own is to get clever with accessories. More than just a place to eat and sleep, your home should be the perfect retreat. The final step in your interiors plan, home accessories should be an extension of your personality and include a carefully edited collection of finishing touches. Here are a few top tips that should help you finish your room:
Whatever you choose, your accessories should complement or contrast harmoniously with your room’s colour scheme.
Mix textures to add depth to your scheme—combine polished wood with woollen fabrics, silks cottons, linens or even leather.
Arrange accessories in odd numbers. A simple trick of the trade means that items look more balanced arranged in odd numbers.
Spend on a signature piece. Choose an arresting colour that can be paired with a chair or lamp to create a sense of welcoming.
Don’t go overboard. Keeping it simple can mean that one standout piece of art, for example, becomes the focus of the room.
Invest in quality pieces which will stand the test of time, acquire patina and become the hallmark of your home.
We believe at Josephine Home that the journey of the product, what inspired it and how it is made, are equally important. Starting small with a made-to-measure service, our aim has always been to produce the very best quality in the world for each of our products, in each of their categories. Through this personal and focused approach, we had the opportunity to work closely, on a small scale, with the very best craftsmen in England and Continental Europe.
On the strength of our bespoke work, we realised that if we could do this service well, we could do anything. The experience we have gathered over these early years has meant that we now know the hallmarks of a great product. We believe that bespoke can never be a “quick fix” but instead it should be, and is, a journey.
For Josephine Home, provenance is about the combination of love, care and level of expertise that goes into creating each and every one of our products. All of our craftsmen have many years and often centuries of accumulated expertise at our (and your) service and what sets them apart is the unique combination of skill, passion and pride. We work closely with every workshop to develop products exclusive to Josephine Home.

How should I care for my bed linen?
For generations, laundering, whitening and darning bed linen were vital rituals in the cycle of life associated with fine linen. Today, a few simple rules will ensure you get the best out of your bed linen.
Firstly, wash at the lowest temperature (40-60 degrees) without filling the drum too tightly as water must be able to circulate to ensure a thorough wash. Soft water also makes a huge difference to the feel of your linen, so it is really worth investing in a water softener if you live in a hard water area.
Secondly, always iron sheets while they are still slightly damp for an easy glide and a perfect finish. Finally, store well away from any dust – ideally in a separate linen cupboard, or drawer, perhaps adding an evocative scent to infuse the linen. The result will be long lasting, crisply ironed, freshly scented linen, which will make it a treat to get into bed every night. Given that we spend up to a third of our lives in bed, it just has to be worth it.
How do I care for my towels?
Your Josephine Home towels should ideally be washed on cold before the first use to soften the fibres. Once in use, they should be washed with whites only at 40 degrees to keep them white and fresh for as long as possible. They will however easily withstand a 60 degrees wash which is essential when a deep clean is required.
Tumble dry is essential for a lovely fluffy finish. However, if you are lucky enough to be able to air dry them outside on a line, this will give them the irreplaceable smell of fresh air with the slightly rougher finish of old fashioned towels.
Never use fabric conditioner on towels, bath mats or bathrobes as it will coat the fibres and make them less absorbent.
