home: trend [ winter florals ]
Deeper colour palette, rich tones and the flora abundant in winter, brings all the warmth to an interior for winter.
Using reds, purples and oranges, various sizing of floral patterns and dark woods, this winter floral trend combines a love of maximalism and floral interiors.
Break up the mix of pattern with dark plain walls or plain seating fabrics. Use dark greens, charcoals or reds in wall paint with burnt oranges, rich purple or bark for curtains and throws.

home: trend [ colour block ]
Colour block – a trend that comes and goes across the interiors world but with the abundance of strong products on the current market, it’s definitely sticking around for now, is proving popular and is an easy look to achieve and evolve with homewares through the changing season – refreshing with different cushions, throws or artwork. Plus it’s also easy to update with a fresh coat of paint on a single wall.
It’s about picking a few strong colours that sit well together and emphasising with accessories in the same tone. For example -A bright yellow wall, a green sofa with green cushions and then dashes of orange in the curtains or rug. Keep patterns to a minimum and break up with lots of white and wood to ensure the few colours stand out strong and bold.
This trend is really aided by the great selection of bold coloured modern silhouette sofas currently filling high street homeware stores. Head to Made, John Lewis or Ikea for a range of affordable options. There are great options in the perfect colours of the year – emerald greens, mustards and deep rich blues.
