home: trend [ marble coffee tables ]
Marble is strong trend for so many homewares and furniture, it’s been high on the radar for a while and is set to stay there this year. It’s such a great material, it’s practically become a new neutral. It can sit amongst many strong interior trends and work with many home styles. It goes perfectly with a minimalistic white interior but is equally a great way to break up and brighten an interior using strong jewel tones – layered and dark. Marble can come in black, white or sandy tone and this lends itself to an easy add in to designing a room.
A nice easy way to introduce or use marble when styling a room is with a coffee table. And there is an absolute abundance of high street, designer and online stores offering a huge variety of styles, silhouettes, sizes and prices.
Designs often mix marble tops with metal framework base either quite minimal or with a geometric influence or wooden legs, wooden frames and even matching it with another material like wood or plastic and segmenting the top surface.

home: trend [ ombre ]
There’s a gorgeous colour effect to bring into your home – ombre.
This beautiful colour haze can be introduced to a current colour scheme if you match the colour.
To create the ombre look pick one or two pieces eg. Cushions and curtains, in an ombre pattern fabric and then colour the rest of the interior in block colours of shades of the ombre tone.
If you’re feeling bold use ombre for a wall paper – a strong look – then collate other homewares in the same colour – this rich look would look great if using one of the popular jewel tones; currently an on trend colour palette that’s across homeware stores on the high street and online.
