Interior / June 18, 2018 /
Vivid colours, organic and earthy shades and textured fabrics work so well in this houseboat interior; mellow yellows, blues and greens compliment natural woods with an ease and elegance we could not assume would work quite so well. And they are all very on-trend right now. One thing I have noticed this year is the use of layering, from floor coverings to bedding, cushions and throws, which adds dimension to a room and gives depth to a design. Do not think to have seen this amount of mixing of styles and tones to create such eclectic styling, in a very long time, but inspired by it. If you are a lover of colour and texture, you could not be happier this season with such a vibrant display in the world of interiors.
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
