home: trend [ indigo ]

All the richness, all the luxury, wrapped up in one colour – indigo. This dark shade is currently best on mass to make a super rich feel to an interior. Embrace wall colour, rugs and soft furnishings to create the strongest look with small metallic, blush or other rich jewel tone highlights.

For a lighter look match indigo with clean white, to lift and brighten a room. Use rich blue tones on walls and furniture, but use white for floors, ceilings and in patterns on the soft furnishings.

home: trend [ gold ]

It doesn’t have to be brash or over shiny, it doesn’t have to come across ostentatious or too blingy but this season, gold is the colour to embrace. From the, it seems, permanently on trend, metallics family, gold is a great colour to introduce in small homewares or be bold and embrace layering golds from walls, to floors, to ceramics to soft furnishings. Use either dark tones or soft blush and whites to sit along side.
