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.
Kitchens are busy places, both practically and visually, so when designing one for real life, not just Instagram, try to inject colour in places it can easily be changed up when the mood takes me. These neon yellow handles are laminate pieces cut to size then sprayed with car paint and glued in. Experimenting is a great way to find what works for you and this is an easy and inexpensive way of doing so. Another big colour trend kitchens is metal. Distressed metal, such as these old copper saucepans will make a new kitchen look less sterile and give the space a unique, luxurious feel. Combine with a copper sink and tap and your space is instantly updated.
