home: trend [ decorative plates ]
For creating a beautiful unique dining table or alternatively to be hung as art on the walls. There’s a huge array of decorative plates to choose from – patterns, styles, colours, designs, and illustrations galore.
This can create such a special look for dining. Layer up plates of design and colour to compliment napkins and clothes to create a table that almost tells a story.
For a wall display, go eclectic with a clash of patterns and designs. Or for a more minimal look mix the odd detailed design or illustration with plain colours and block patterns – this in all monochrome would be a perfect look.

home: trend [ faux flowers ]
It has taken a while to get on board with having faux flowers in the home but more and more of us are exploring the possibility.
Now is a great time to find those realistic looking stems, ideal for dressing a table or shelf. This season has also seen an increased interest in a 70’s favourite – dried flowers.
Invest in one or two different stems and then mix in real flowers when required. The realism is so good now on these fauxs and of course they will last.
Also look out for faux plants, perfect for dark corners of rooms. No chance of killing these off!

home:trend [ matt finishes ]
Over the last few years we have seen a lot of shiny surfaces, metalic accents and pattern on cabinets and tables. This season we seeing less shine and more matt finishes.
Solid colour on worktops, cabinets and table tops is coming through into stores and we will be seeing it everywhere. Strong colour choices are pink, black and green.
This look is very much influenced by Scandinavian design and creates a much more harmonious interior with solid shapes and strong silhouettes.

home: trend [ vintage inspired lighting ]
Lighting is one of the most important parts of any room, whether you like you design subtle or full on.
This year we are seeing an increased popularity of antique inspired lights, including decorative chandeliers and wall sconces. The great thing about what we are seeing with reproduction lights is that the prices are a lot cheaper than if you were sourcing an original.
Make a statement with a decorative chandelier, fringing and glass. There are so many options to choose from, so be brave and go bold.

home: trend [ mustard ]
Definitely one of the strongest colours for the season. With a neutral yet warm feel, a nod to vintage and perfect as a highlight or accompaniment to many other colours, mustard is a great tone to introduce to an interior.
Mustard works well with olive, teak or walnut wood tones. It is a stand out tone to use in a mostly neutral and white interiors. We love it with other colours of the season – rust orange and olive green.
