We love the excitement of each season’s new trends in home décor, with changes in design, colour, pattern, texture and theme. We also enjoy advising customers on how to achieve the look they desire for their home. Even if the latest big thing doesn’t fully catch your imagination, there are usually features you can incorporate into your scheme for an overall modern result.

Your window dressings and soft furnishings play a major role in creating the perfect space for you, plus they are the easiest things to adjust or replace when you fancy a change. When it comes to colour, 2016 was all about dynamic monochrome tones, and a variation this year gives an even more powerful range of effects. Vivid blue/black hues bring an exceptionally striking and luxurious look when contrasted with crisp white. The rich, dark and vibrant colours work to create a cosy, intimate environment, especially when complimented by pools of warm, ambient light dotted around the room.

A popular trend starting to grace many UK interiors is the concept of colour blocking, where fresh, bright colours are used to create a bold statement. This favourite practice has been widespread within the fashion world for years, and is now being transferred to interior design. Cool new season’s colours include mustard, teal, coral and blue-grey.

Another gorgeous look can be produced using luscious deep berry shades like sophisticated raspberry, plum, damson and cherry. Perfect for soft furnishings, particularly with a variety of textures, finished with strategically placed warm metallic pieces in shades like rose gold, copper or brass. Blousy floral or botanical prints will also continue to dominate the interior design scene, but with darker, and more vivacious accents.

At the end of the day, it’s all about personal preference and what you like and can live with full time. Try to inject your own individual style into your surroundings, with a touch of the latest trends here and there and you can’t go wrong.
