Pantone’s colour of the year and we are loving the affluent tones it offers, but how do we decorate with it? It’s not just a case of painting your walls with Ultra Violet, having furnishings can be an alternative way of breaking up the space in your room.
Pair this characterised violet with green, in shades such a sage or match it up with a rich mustard. Alternatively it can work as an accent colour, leaving the rest of the space in white and greys.
For a Boho trait add in rattan furniture or for modern zen feel. Mix with concrete walls and furniture.
It has been brought back from the 70s, but in bright and pastel colours. Terrazzo could be becoming the new marble favourite. With its small unpredictable chunks of marble, terrazzo is best used in small sections in a room, like for a table top, splash back or for stairs.
Interior designers are bringing the marble design into fabric prints, enlarging the shapes for cushions and wallpapers, this is something that has inspired us for some future collections! Mixing the style and bordering on to our next trend of the year…watercolour.
Watercolour is leaping out of paintings and onto wallpaper and fabric. This pastel wash of colour, flooding leaf and botanical designs brings in a feeling of calm and relaxation when in situ. It is very versatile, pairing designs with their incorporated colours or simply having a watercolour effect on wallpaper to make your room look raw and stripped back, a contemporary style trending in Elle Decoration.
2018 is all about the geometric shapes. Herringbone tiling on bathroom walls and floors are a stylish and studious choice, now flowing into soft furnishings. Take a look at our fabrics from our new collections which have been inspired by the herringbone design. Keira from the Infusion collection, Bolero from the Rhythm collection and Cherie from the Amour collection.
People are indulging in going green! Patterned plants are appearing in abundancy inside the home, some can even help you sleep. Following on from last year’s trend of ‘bringing the outside in’ plants are being potted in some unusual and inventive ways, replacing flowers for a longer lasting life span. Which is why there are a lot more leaf inspired surface pattern designs developing.
Having plain painted walls in dark and rich colours can be so tempting to cover with frames and wall art, gallery walls are the way forward for multiple frames but only if arrange in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
The easiest way on covering your walls is having one large piece of art, abstract art is great as it doesn’t distract too much away from the wall paint. This type of design will make your room studiously bold and very artistic!
