Continuing from last year we are seeing more and more shades of green in homeware. Not only paint colours but furniture and accessories.

Sage is the colour for Spring and we are seeing it everywhere. It’s a calming shade and works in any room. Accessorise with soft furnishings and ornaments for a more subtle look or go full on with painted walls or wallpaper.

We love it’s understated tone and it brings freshness and wellbeing to a space. Shop the high street and online for an array of choice.

Influences from around the world, travels to exotic places, exploring far and wide – bring them all into home styling for the ‘traveller’ trend. Mixing block printed patterns with woven textures, baskets and ornaments that could have been picked up from the little streets of Marrakesh or the markets of Delhi, unique pieces that embrace another culture or way of life – all come together to create a rich interior.

Colours are rich and vibrant. Hand dyed fabrics and hand woven accessories sit on warm tone wood furniture like walnut or mango.

This year if you want to be bold then embrace the trend of clashing colours, patterns, textiles… it’s all about being brave with mixing sizes of pattern, tones of colour and creating a powerful, eclectic feel.

There is a certain compatibility but it feels very ‘carefully’ thrown together. Keep colours rich and break up the pattern with plain bold and bright pieces of furniture, but mix geometric patterned curtains with floral wall paper or mix a striped throw over a intricate print sofa.

Every year we are given a top colour from the big names in paint, and every year we ponder on whether to follow the trend or stay well away! This time around there is a mixed bag with the one everyone is talking about from Pantone – Ultra Violet.

Love it or hate it, it’s refreshing to see Pantone share a daring shade to get us all discussing. It’s not a paint colour that many are going to go crazy for, but don’t rule it out. Accenting a room with accessories or soft furnishing in a purple tone will certainly bring a new dimension to a room and make a statement.

Farrow & Ball and Dulux have opted for a more safe colour pallete for 2018. F&B has launched Drop Cloth, a dark cream that brings warmth to a room.

‘We’ve named this colour Drop Cloth in honour of all the painters and decorators who have worked with Farrow & Ball paints for so long, as it’s the traditional name for a dust sheet. The colour has a subtle touch of mystery about it’

Drop Cloth is a great backdrop to put on your walls, allowing for stronger accents and accesories of colour to stand out and compliment. We love this colour for its subtle and understated finish. 

Dulux bring us Heart Wood, a warm neutral tone with a touch of heather. Combine with other natural colours for a relaxed,  balanced space or try navy blue and gold for a luxury feel. This colour can cover a large space and not feel overwhelming, and would actually work in any room.
