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
