home: trend [ rust ]
The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.
If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.
For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.

home: trend [ vanity units ]
Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.
It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.
Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.
When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.
Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.
