Following on from the beginning of this year Art deco inspired interiors are still big. Introducing this 1920s look into your home will bring glamour and opulence, wether a small corner or a whole room.

You can hint at this trend or go full on, but be careful not to over indulge as you don’t want it to look themed or staged. This look focuses mainly on two key areas, pattern and furniture, with bold gold designs set against black and rich blue backgrounds on wallpapers and art.

The furniture comes in the form of drinks trolleys and statement armchairs. A good place to start is with a classic round trolley with marble shelves, a design that mixes straight lines and circles, very much echoing the strong print designs of the Art Deco era.

Combine this with a statement chair – velvet is a must – with brass or gold legs and you will have the perfect start to the look. Keep the walls dark to create more drama with dark green, blues and of course black.

Accessories to consider would be classic angled mirrors and perhaps a quirky lamp influenced by the 1920s. As well as this you could continue the feel with soft furnishings like a fringed pillow [ pictured ].

We have seen many shades of pink throughout 2017 and it seems to still be in high demand. A shade of pink that is not going away anytime soon is Blush. A popular choice for those wanting to introduce colour into a room but maybe afraid to go too bright. It doesn’t matter which room – living, bedroom or kitchen – blush can feature everywhere.

Ceramics from roseandgrey.co.uk

The blush shade works best when on chairs and soft furnishings with tactile materials like velvet and soft linen. Whether your room is a light neutral space or dark and moody, a blush statement chair will fit perfectly. It compliments colours grey and green really well,  as well as materials like brass, copper, gold and dark woods.

Add touches of blush with cushions and accessories. Find interesting patterns and quirky designs to inject fun into your home.

This is a trend to expand what may be a naive view that pink is just for little girls or lounges in the eighties. 

Modern pink interiors are cool, striking, yet calming, and the range of shades that sit together well and with other colours give ample opportunity to find the right shade to work for you.

Layering up shades of pink is so effective for a rich inviting interior
Choose pinks to suit you. Pink can be introduced in small details, accessories and soft furnishings. Bolder use of the colour can be for walls in paint or wallpaper. The strongest look is combining shades for every element of a room and building the look with textures and patterns. 

If pink seems to much to have as the main colouring in interior design then try using it as a highlight colour. It’s a perfect addition to a monochrome room and works beautifully alongside other high light colours including copper, soft grey and beige.
