home: trend [ matte finish ]

This season shiney finishes and silk paint is out, and in comes matte walls and painted furniture.

Whether it’s light fittings, accessories, unit doors or table tops the look combines oxidized metals, matte glazes and chalk paint finishes. Black and grey look great in matte, but to bring lighter shades into a room consider creams, aqua greens [ in lighter shades ] and other pastel tones.

This trend works well in minimalist interiors and can be mixed with elements of Industrial, Rustic and Scandinavian. And note not everything has to be matte, mix with textured and reflective items such at leather, glass and metal to bring a well collated, thought through interior. Be selective in your choices and bring in colour where possible.

With regards to walls you can use wallpaper with minimal pattern or our preferred option is to paint. Consider clay and earthy colours [ in matte ] or try two colours [ pastels ] and divide a wall in half or an interesting pattern. Check out bestlivingroomdesigns.com for ideas.

Launching this Spring HAY has join forces with COS for a second time after their successful collaboration last year.
COS has been using HAY furniture for many years in their stores, so it seems very fitting that the two Scandinavian brands have come together.


The clean lines, soft colour palette and durability of HAY products mirrors that of COS and they compliment each other seamlessly.
The collection itself is made up of accessories, stationary and furniture in shades of green, blue and pink all hand picked by the COS team from the new HAY collection.


Last Autumn the two brands worked with Spanish designer Tomas Alonso  to create a folding table to be sold in COS stores. The success has lead to a continued partnership, and who knows what great things are next.

Available in COS – High St Kennsingtion and online at cosstores.com

[ HAY is available in some of the big department stores in London and around the country, as well as their stand alone store in Bath, plus you can hunt it out through online shops. ]
