Interior / June 23, 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.
We will see a monochrome colour trend. Monochromatic does not mean only black and white, it is more about shaping the space with one colour. Lets take grey, the most boring colour you say? Grey is not boring when chosen within the right context. From light grey to the dark graphite, the choice is huge. It is all about choosing the right colour to match the history of your house or retail space that matches perfectly with the existing building elements.
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.
As you have read, there are a lot of common mistakes that can be easily made when it comes to interior design. Luckily, there are also plenty of easy solutions to fix these mistakes, sometimes it is as easy as getting rid of a hand me down that you hate but felt obligated to keep, while other times you may need to enlist the help and keen eye of a friend.
