As we know pink isn’t going anywhere this year and especially the pastel shades. We spotted this chair at Abigail Ahern and love it.

An advocate of all things dark, Abigail Ahern is now bringing hints of a brighter colour pallete to her online and Islington stores.

This shade of pink will work with so many other colours, and look just as well in a bright white room as a dark grey one.

home: trend [ coloured marble ]

As quite often with trends they come and go, and then come back again, and one of those is marble. With so many marble products available it’s coloured examples we look at today.

Gone is the white marble and in comes black, green and pink. You will start to see this on coffee tables, kitchenware, shelving and lighting. This material works really nicely with mixed metal & black accents.

Marble also goes beyond table tops and can be seen on home accessories including clocks, bookends and coasters. Get your little marble fix without breaking the bank.

A big kitchen trend for 2019 is to feature pastel tones. This could be painting walls, using tiles or going full on with pastel cabinets.

The calming feel of pastels will also inject some fun into you kitchen and this can be achieved simply by painting some walls. If you get bored with it, then it’s easy to change.

Create some interest on splashbacks and tiling with pastel tones like blue, green and pink. There are so many shades and patterns available on tiles now, so you can be sure to find something you love.

With more and more options with kitchen cabinets online and in store, now is the perfect opportunity to design everything yourself from style to colour. A pastel pink or blue cabinet will work really nicely with pale wood and white for a fresh clean look.

For a more subtle take on this trend then add some pastel appliances like a fridge or toaster. Who needs to stick to black or chrome!
