The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.

If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.

For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.

home: trend [ beige ]

It may not be a choice of colour that jumps out at you, but beige is to take over our lives and homes during 2019. No longer is it seen as dull, lifeless and dated, beige is actually a warming & calming colour which acts as a nuetral backdrop to bolder shades.

Layer up different shades of beige with accents of brass, gold, wood and additional colours of black and white, creating a very collated room.

home: trend [ pastel kitchen ]

A big kitchen trend for 2019 is to feature pastel tones. This could be painting walls, using tiles or going full on with pastel cabinets.

The calming feel of pastels will also inject some fun into you kitchen and this can be achieved simply by painting some walls. If you get bored with it, then it’s easy to change.

Create some interest on splashbacks and tiling with pastel tones like blue, green and pink. There are so many shades and patterns available on tiles now, so you can be sure to find something you love.

With more and more options with kitchen cabinets online and in store, now is the perfect opportunity to design everything yourself from style to colour. A pastel pink or blue cabinet will work really nicely with pale wood and white for a fresh clean look.

For a more subtle take on this trend then add some pastel appliances like a fridge or toaster. Who needs to stick to black or chrome!

Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.

It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.

Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.

When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.

Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.

This trend has been building up momentum over the last year and is set to continue into 2019. Constellations, stars and the Zodiac are not just for astronomists, especially when it comes to the home.

We are seeing prints and motifs on tableware, art and soft furnishings and it’s the type of trend you can have a little nod too with out going overboard.

Invest in a statement wallpaper like Mini Moderns ‘Star-ling’ design or accessorise a sofa with constellation design cushions.
