home: featured [ River Island ]

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.

To bring a room together or to give you a starting point for styling and picking colours for a room; a statement rug is the place to start.
The two main routes to take for interior designing from the chosen rug is to keep the rest of the room simple and minimal and take colours from the rug for small highlights around the room or follow the maximalist trend and continue from the statement rug with bold walls, patterns in soft furnishings and layer textures.
