Metallics are still a strong trend for this year and bronze highlights are continuing to appear across stores in homeware products.
We’ve picked some favourites to add a little bronze highlight to your room – simple touches like picture frames, furniture legs, clocks and lights to use a small ways to have pops of metallics in a room.
Concrete in interiors is a strong trend and there’s a plethora of homeware that use the effect, material or colour in their design.
Floors and walls in concrete create a beautiful effect for an interior but it’s not always possible to introduce it for walls in a home already built or if the budget isn’t there to completely re lay floor, but with the ever advancing of wallpaper design and quality, you can obtain an effective realistic look for your walls with wallpaper.
We found this gorgeous semi gloss concrete look wallpaper by East Urban Home from Wayfair.
Definitely one of the strongest colours for the season. With a neutral yet warm feel, a nod to vintage and perfect as a highlight or accompaniment to many other colours, mustard is a great tone to introduce to an interior.
Mustard works well with olive, teak or walnut wood tones. It is a stand out tone to use in a mostly neutral and white interiors. We love it with other colours of the season – rust orange and olive green.
The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.
Evey summer over the last couple of years we always get an overdose of tropical prints, including plants, animals and fruit. Although this trend never really goes away throughout the year we tend to notice it more now.
This year we have seen it is less about the bright colours and clashing prints and more a subtle take on what’s gone before, with layering prints and textures in different shades of green.
Green on green action is big this year, whether it’s tableware on complimentary table linens, art and ornaments layered against a wallpaper backdrop or tiling in a bathroom with similar tone bath towels and accessories. The calming and refreshing colour of green mixed with patterns in different shades will bring an exciting and bold look to any room.
And then on top of that fill your home with indoor plants – real or faux – to get the maximum look.
We have seen this trend before and geometric patterns are always going to appeal, but this time the focus turns away from soft furnishings like cushions and rugs and more about wallpapers, tiles and art.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to tiles and whether it’s for the bathroom, kitchen or floor we can create bold patterns and experiment with colour. Create a focal point with a vinyl floor in a kitchen, leaving the walls a plain colour or maybe it’s a patterned wallpaper that takes your fancy, to act as a statement backdrop to the rest of the room.
A great way to introduce pattern into a room is with art. Choose a select few pieces to bring interest to a wall. Whatever you do be brave and embrace geometrics.
