Interior / June 24, 2018 / .
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.
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.
2018 is the year of the colour pop on the interiors scene and this living room completed by us last year perfectly illustrates how embracing bright colours will help you achieve a room that wows. This room really makes a statement with purposeful hits of bold colours in the deep sumptuous teal velvet on the seating, vibrant yellow lighting and splashes of pink in the accessories it creating a fresh, energised and personality packed room. The statement art above the sofa incorporating all the colours in the scheme brings cohesion and cements those colour pops!
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.
