Trends change and also return, as we are seeing right now. Magnolia was once an interior colour of choice in many homes in the 80s & 90s. Now this off white shade is back but with an update and we are calling it vanilla.
Bright white has its place in homes but tends to need a lot of up keep and can be seen as quite cold. Choosing an off white shade will bring warmth to a space, and layering up furniture and soft furnishings creates depth and cosiness.
Texture and pattern will give interest to this colour in soft furnishings and accessories. Combine with other neutral colours and use black as an accent for a stand out look.
Jumping on the colourful back of ‘it’ colour millennial pink, we have a new shade in town for 2020 – neo mint.
Not a shade many will put as first choice for a room colour or furniture fabric, but bear with us. This bright, mint colour is described as ‘an oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature’.
It’s a calming colour that will work well with our hectic lives and give us positive vibes.
We are starting to see it online in accessories and wallpapers, as well as chairs and some larger pieces like sofas. Of course we wouldn’t imagine anyone would go mint throughout a whole room, but we suggest adding accents alongside paler shades.
Neo Mint may not be for all, but keep an eye out as you may become to love it!
We have noticed an increased popularity in bringing black accents into our homes through furniture and lighting.
Find chair legs in tubular black steel, black frames on cabinets & shelving, as well as black metal floor lamps & bed frames.
This modern touch gives us an alternative to brass and chrome accents and nods back to the eighties. Keep chair colours light as they contrast best with the black and will make it easier to compliment your current style.
