The navy trend is staying for 2020. This deep blue hue is rich and strong, creating stylish interiors.

For the modern approach use in multitude on walls in paint or wallpaper, floors, soft furnishings and drapes. Layering the tone to create an overall blue canvas is a bold look. Break it up with highlights of bronze or copper and a few pieces in other deep jewel tones.

Soften the look with the use of grey tones, natural beiges and browns – walnut or teal for furniture and tan in sofas or armchairs.

As often happens around now, we start to turn our thoughts to soft furnishings like throws and cushions. Stores are full of textures like faux fur rugs, knitted blankets and soft pile cushion covers.

The colour pallette is subtle with muted tones of nature, including stone, browns, camel and grey.

We discovered the amazing printing projects on Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen, when browsing the Remodelista blog – and fell in love.

So creative and such simple printing ideas that are so very effective in creating beautiful modern print led patterns.

Create your own fabrics from her tutorials to in turn, make into table cloths, cushions, napkins, or even curtains – the ideas are endless.
