With spring just around the corner, we’re shining the spotlight on the hottest decorating and interiors trends that you’ll want to bring home to your nest.
Throw the rule book out and embrace the perfectly imperfect style of the modern bohemian. Drawing on Moroccan-inspired accents, rich textiles, print clash and texture play; this look is proof that sometimes more is more.
Florals are a springtime given. But this season they have a good dose of attitude and verve. Ditsy prints have been ditched for big, blowsy blooms in dark colour combinations and contrasting rich foliage motifs.
That 70’s Moment
Capture the excess of the 70’s with over-the top accessories and theatrical styling. Think velvet, strong geographic prints, brass accents – and of course the sink-in allure of a shaggy rug!
The Return of Raffia
Raffia is weaving its way back into interiors. Bringing with it memories of tropical breezes and beachy getaways, it has a soft yet pliable texture that makes it popular for wallpaper, upholstery fabric and accessories. To dip your toe into this trend, update your sofa or bed with the textural beauty of a crocheted raffia cushion.
Grey timber, like our Corsican Grey Plantino Engineered Oak, is the new neutral in flooring. Riffing on minimalist interior design and the enduring appeal of a Scandinavian sensibility, this look makes a room feel light and airy. You can also add more colour with rest of your décor by playing with pastels, which really pop, against the cool tones of grey.
Relaxed and informal, spring’s new crop of nautical-inspired styles stand out for all the right reasons. For an elegant coastal style, expect utilitarian fabrics like linen and furniture in rattan or reclaimed wood. Meanwhile, layered stripes and gingham prints will turn up the volume. To steer this look out of clichéd territory, avoid obvious nautical motifs.
Paint by Numbers
This season’s palette is defined by four key hues:
- Buttercup yellow instantly brightens up any room, especially when pared with a contrasting colour like fuchsia.
- A soft, neutral brown (think iced coffee!) may not seem groundbreaking but it’s an ideal base tone.
- From walls to a plush sofa, lilac grey adds visual interest without being over-the-top.
- Pretty as a picture, blush tones of rose quartz pink add the perfect touch of colour while still having a neutral, approachable quality.
