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!

This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.

Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.

An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.

If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.

An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.
