Touch Up With Turquoise: This year’s best colour award goes to turquoise. Both tranquil and energizing in its brightest shade, this colour has enveloped feature walls and accessories a plenty. From large scale pieces such as fabric bed heads and floor rugs to the tiniest of accessories – candle holders, vases, Roman blinds and lampshades. A simple update only needs a splash of this ocean hue!
Organic Meets Glam: We had a glam phase and it was followed up with everything organic and rough-edged. Now we are moving into a mix of the two which makes for a real interesting look with lots of character. Do have a reclaimed wood dining table – but bring it up a new level with gloss or metallic tableware and an antique chandelier.
Urban Gardening: We have turned into a gardening nation with many people seeking out allotments to grow their own spuds and strawberries. Living in the city makes this hard and the latest craze for interiors is indoor gardening. Lots of novel designs have popped up such as wall tiles with the odd open pocket for growing herbs and aquariums with floating gardens.
Contemporary Coastal Theme: ‘Thank you’ summertime for bringing this classic theme back into our interiors with a seriously chic approach. Wide stripes in neutrals and the best of blues for, scalloped roller blinds, sofa cushions and throws. Driftwood is used as a décor piece with driftwood based lamps, coffee tables and mirror frames – or just as a structured piece in its own right.
Flower Power: It wouldn’t be the first time we mentioned this trend, having showed up in the late winter – just in time to jazz up our interiors for the spring and summer. This year’s floral trend is large scale, bright, colour clashing and has been seen on blinds, wallpaper designs and bedding sets.
