home: trend [ sanctuary ] 

Forget the high tech gadgets, forget the plugged in paraphernalia, switch off all devices and embrace the santuary trend. 

It’s all about creating a natural, calm, serene environment to allow you to switch off, and for your over stimulated senses to have a break from work, stress, busy lives and hectic schedules. 

What better trend to bring in to your home? 

Using soft tones of colour, mainly neutrals and white, natural fibres and simple accessories including a happy abundance of indoor planting as this will increase the potential of your calm space. 

Create seating or bed cocoons with comfort and relaxation in mind. Layer up cushions and throws in soft fabrics, avoiding pattern or bright colours. Use voile or lace on windows to have privacy but allow plenty of natural light.

home: trend [ sunset to dusk ] 

The natural world brings us many inspirational colours that influence trends that find their way into our homes, and with blush pinks being so popular we now found all the tones of sunset to dusk being a new strong inspiration for our interiors. 

This Nordic influenced calming colour palette brings together peaches, pinks, soft sky blues and lavender that contrast well with the colours of dusk and nightfall – the darker inkier blues, charcoal and black. 

Look for smooth finishes, natural fabrics, woods and the softest hues of each shade. Use the dark tones on walls, lighting and floors with all the pale colours for furniture, soft furnishings and gone accessories. Colour block with shades of the same colour and keep pattern to minimum.

home: trend [ blush hues ] 

Bring serenity and a beautiful calm to your interiors with blush hues. The pink palette of this trend is a dreamy mix of shades of pink with complimentary colour additions of white, cream and beige. These hues sit well with light woods or white furniture, keeping accessories in copper, a little monochrome and of course pink to a minimal to ensure the interior is minimal and clean.

Create a Spring feel for a lounge or bedroom with this beautiful trend,  covering windows with long billowing pale pink curtains, which could look great layered up with lace nets, scatter cushions in a variety of pale pinks with the odd one with subtle pattern and opt for a couple of pink tones for the walls.
