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

To create a unique and affordable stylish floor, try floor stencils or decals. When you’ve fallen for some beautiful, but expensive, moroccon tiles or maybe want to recreate a Victorian floor or simply love the look of patterned floors, stencilling or decals are a great way to reproduce the look yourself at a fraction of the price.

If you’re lucky you already have decent floor boards to use as a base, these would need to be thoroughly cleaned and lightly sanded to ensure the paint takes to the surface. If the floorboards aren’t in decent shape then you could look to lay a plywood covering to provide a smooth layer to paint onto. You will need a good water based paint or floor paint and a good floor varnish to finish and seal.

If going for a decal, again, the floors would need to be prepped – clean and smooth, and a good varnish will ensure its long lasting.

Cutting Edge give a useful how-to guide, as do Royal Design Studio Stencils – and head to Apartment Therapy for ten gorgeous stencil design ideas for inspiration. 

Be inspired by current trends of geometric, lace and monochrome for an up to date look or even look into designing your own decals or stencils that you could lay to create your perfect floor from Pixart Printing or have a look at the range of tile style decal stickers from Zazzle.
