Colour block – a trend that comes and goes across the interiors world but with the abundance of strong products on the current market, it’s definitely sticking around for now, is proving popular and is an easy look to achieve and evolve with homewares through the changing season – refreshing with different cushions, throws or artwork. Plus it’s also easy to update with a fresh coat of paint on a single wall.

It’s about picking a few strong colours that sit well together and emphasising with accessories in the same tone. For example -A bright yellow wall, a green sofa with green cushions and then dashes of orange in the curtains or rug. Keep patterns to a minimum and break up with lots of white and wood to ensure the few colours stand out strong and bold.

This trend is really aided by the great selection of bold coloured modern silhouette sofas currently filling high street homeware stores. Head to Made, John Lewis or Ikea for a range of affordable options. There are great options in the perfect colours of the year – emerald greens, mustards and deep rich blues.

This season we have started to see more decoration and pattern on furniture and accessories. Side cabinets, consoles and coffee tables have inlaid tiles and wood with decorative patterns and colours.

A brand where you can see a lot of this is anthropologie.com with gorgeous designs and colours.

We are also seeing decoration on ceramics like vases and bowls. They become textural and tactile.

Wood is clearly a big choice for all, with a lot of mixed materials being used on furniture. Parquet finishes and carved wood feature heavily. This carved look also translates to bed headboards and room dividers.
