home: trend [ ice cream shades ]

The sun is shining, summer vibes are in full swing and we all want to inject some colour into our lives. This season pastels are back and the focus turns to ice cream!

The gorgeous subtle shades of pink, mint, yellow and soft brown create a calming and welcoming feel to any room and whether you choose one colour or a mixture, you will be sure to have a smile on your face whenever you walk in the room.

Add small touches to a space with soft furnishes and accessories like vases and tableware or why not paint a wall or room in your favourite ice cream flavour. With so many amazing paint colors available we are spoilt for choice. Using art is a great way to introduce colour to a room, Desenio is our favourite go to online store.

home: trend [ off the grid ] 

Dulux have sought out another exciting trend. Your interiors can become clean and bright with the lines and colours of the Off-The-Grid trend. 

It brings together the control of chaos  with the framework of lines, wire grid work and monochrome clarity, with a playful ‘off the grid’ freedom using splashes of colour with a fun bright tonal palette. Essentially this trend brings together the on-trend colours of coral, teal, copper and yellow with the crisp linear simplicity of the monochrome trend. 

Search for grid pattern wall papers ( try Ferm Living ), big geometric patterns on soft furnishings from brands including Next, Zazzle and John Lewis, and colourful bold items of furniture that will sit against a monochrome backdrop. Head to Made for a huge selection of bright stand alone pieces of furniture at great prices. 

‘We need boundaries in which to live, even if we seek to rebel against them, freedom is only understandable within the context of a framework’ Dulux
