While it is really fun to look through showrooms that are full of brand new modern furnishings, do not get carried away and buy everything at one time and one place. Doing this results in a common interior design mistake buying everything matchy, resulting in a home that lacks character. How do we add character? Slowly, over time. It can take years to have your home fully complete and fully designed.
Blue-black colour and will be a popular key colour, especially in kitchens. Combined with metallics like polished brass, it can add a luxurious feel to any interior from upholstery to woodwork. This colour can be used with a statement piece or even to dominate a room with walls painted in this sophisticated tone. This deep blue will work well with Ultra Violet as well as pastel hues that are still very much on trend.
The indigo blues are still in fashion but recently we tend to use it through accessories and art, rather than large joinery items or furniture pieces. Together with an element of gold or brass, these create a rich composition, even in a new build apartment. Scaling it down and refining rich tones helps to animate the atmosphere while ensuring that even the most conservative of clients have a fashionable interior. We will always ensure that those pieces are easily replaceable if the fashion changes. This style of combining trends/colours gives us an opportunity to be creative within our environment.
Set to be all about rich, deep and warm colours, burgundy, terracotta and aubergine. Here in this home office/music room, the baseline is warmth and cosiness, accented by bright pops of colour, like the yellow lamp and turquoise cushions. Those deeper, rusty and purple-rich colours are perfect to mix with dark woods found in vintage or antique pieces of furniture. It is definitely a good time to stop hiding grannys dark side table or bookcase, they could add character to your interiors and help create an atmosphere that is at once familiar, comfortable and stylish.
