home: trend [ curve appeal ] 

Give your home ‘curve appeal’, soften those edges, bring circular and rounded patterns and silhouettes into an interior to create a calm feel and modern design look.

Introduce the circular design in fabrics, wallpapers and other patterned soft furnishings, or try curves in furniture – rounded tables, soft cornered shelving, and moulded smooth plastic furniture. 

Look for inspiration from midcentury interiors and 1960s styling but give it a modern look by minimising too many bright colours and not clashing too many patterns. Furniture in plywood and plastic are always strong for curved silhouettes. Head to print stores like King & Mcgaw and Seventy Tree for extra details in your styling by introducing prints with circle patterns and colours that match your scheme.

We believe that your home should bring you happiness and you should feel free to create the home that inspires you, motivates you and reflects you.

It gets quite dark and opulent-gothic this autumn with bringing dark berry into home interiors. Layering up tones of this shade – think burgundy, port, rose, grape and other deep rich berry-like shades create a warm, inviting interior to see you into colder months. 

Keep the look modern with matt tones and matt fabrics, use along side dark woods and allow textures of wool, leather and velvet to work together. 

Think to use shades all the way from floor to walls to window covering to give strength to the look and pop in other jewel tones if want the odd highlight to break up the colour.
