home: trend [ home comforts ]
Now that the hot weather is well an truly behind us, it’s time to embrace the winter months and start creating cosy homes that you can’t wait to get back too.
As often happens around now, we start to turn our thoughts to soft furnishings like throws and cushions. Stores are full of textures like faux fur rugs, knitted blankets and soft pile cushion covers.
The colour pallette is subtle with muted tones of nature, including stone, browns, camel and grey.

home: trend [ neo mint ]
Jumping on the colourful back of ‘it’ colour millennial pink, we have a new shade in town for 2020 – neo mint.
Not a shade many will put as first choice for a room colour or furniture fabric, but bear with us. This bright, mint colour is described as ‘an oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature’.
It’s a calming colour that will work well with our hectic lives and give us positive vibes.
We are starting to see it online in accessories and wallpapers, as well as chairs and some larger pieces like sofas. Of course we wouldn’t imagine anyone would go mint throughout a whole room, but we suggest adding accents alongside paler shades.
Neo Mint may not be for all, but keep an eye out as you may become to love it!

home: trend [ black steel ]
We have noticed an increased popularity in bringing black accents into our homes through furniture and lighting.
Find chair legs in tubular black steel, black frames on cabinets & shelving, as well as black metal floor lamps & bed frames.
This modern touch gives us an alternative to brass and chrome accents and nods back to the eighties. Keep chair colours light as they contrast best with the black and will make it easier to compliment your current style.

home: trend [ terracotta ]
Bring the warmth and comfort of one of the colours of the year, to your home – terracotta.
It’s last rise in popularity was during the 1990s and there was possibly a fair few terracotta walls on our screens in Changing Rooms but now its had a modern relaunch and using tones of it across a room from walls to furniture to small homewares can look incredibly effective.
Using the colour as a palette across an interior will bring warmth to the room.

home: trend [ sculptured form ]
As we head into Autumn new trends are alway appearing, including today’s pick – sculptured form.
Taking inspiration from sculpture and art, furniture & lighting are taking on forms that give them the appearance of something more than just a functional object. Sofas and chairs are given soft curved lines with lighting being something not out if place on a gallery plinth.
We have always bought furniture for not just it’s use, but also it’s form and now it seems brands are going that bit further to offer us something even more interesting and eye catching.
