home: trend [ Luxe Living ]

We have seen a lot of this style before, but the fact is, brands still love it, and we still love it. Leading the way is velvet, we are seeing it everywhere, on furniture, lighting and soft furnishings.

Velvet is the simplist way to get a luxurious feel in your home, whether it’s a statement chair or a few cushions on a sofa. Get extra glam with accessories like gold framed mirrors and smoked glass table tops.

Key colours for this trend are ochre and pink, with accents of brass and gold. This is what we are seeing a lot of but other colours appearing for Autumn are deep blue and burgandy.

With a heavy art deco influence this trend explores interesting shapes and patterns. For example round table tops with square frames, painted detail on cabinets and angular mirrors with interesting shapes. Luxe Living is about pushing the look that little bit further than before, be brave with it and own it.

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.

home: trend [ green & pink ]

This year has seen an array of colour in the home including yellow, blue, berry red, green and pink.

Sometimes a combination of colours seems so random but somehow works and this time round its green & pink. They have had their moment as stand alone accent colours, but now try and mix the two and witness the gorgeous result.

Pale, moss, apple, olive, whatever the shade of green, there is a pink to compliment. Paler shades of pink can look great next to richer greens.

Add some metalics like gold and brass to bring a lux feel, in accessories and chair legs. There are no rules to colour, it’s a very personal choice. We can only inspire and share what we are loving right now, and this colour combination is one of the best.
