Taking inspiration from traditional homeware from the past couple of centuries, and objects and colourful patterns of the past, but with a modern twist, this trend can be a bold or subtle look depending on the colours chosen.
Bringing together your collated items from travels and things that were inherited, sitting alongside new treasured pieces. Bold patterns, rich colours and discovery of your own identity in the homeware and furniture that are styled in a room. With a cultural feel from travelling, this look can be continually added to with pieces that have a story or a personal meaning.
In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.
If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.
It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.
We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.
To bring a room together or to give you a starting point for styling and picking colours for a room; a statement rug is the place to start.
The two main routes to take for interior designing from the chosen rug is to keep the rest of the room simple and minimal and take colours from the rug for small highlights around the room or follow the maximalist trend and continue from the statement rug with bold walls, patterns in soft furnishings and layer textures.
Inspired by interiors of the orient, this eastern trend is chic and now with a modernised edge.
Layer up intricate patterns of flowers, birds and illustrations on cushions and other soft furnishings. Keep the colour palette rich but muted tones.
Although busy with pattern and design ensure some larger areas – a wall or two, the rug or the sofa colour is paler and less fussy. Add accessories in lacquered black to add a contrast and richness to the scheme, with flashes of gold and iridescent pearl tones in lighting, ceramics and picture framing.
If you love bold colours and quirky accessories then get on board with the maxamilist trend that is big right now.
Throw out any rule book and have fun with your interior. Combine rich colours of yellow, red and green with statement prints in wallpapers and artwork.
We love a strong stripe and it really draws your eye to any furniture you put in front of it. Talking of furniture, fund something that has some addition interest, maybe a texture, gold accents or a patterned surface.
Whatever you choose let it clash, as this is a very eclectic look and the bolder you go the more curated it looks.
The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.
