Looking for inspiration for your home for this year. Read on…
If you’re looking to update your home this year, you’re likely to find a handful of trends dominating the glossy pages of your favourite magazines. From Houzz to Pinterest to Instagram, which are the trending looks, and how can you incorporate them into your own home.
It’s true, in a perfect 80’s revival we’ve gone mad for house plants. Hanging plants, palms, spider plants and succulents. They’re everywhere. To be honest they do make for a nice addition though don’t they. And if I remember my science correctly they’re pretty healthy things to have about. All that extra oxygen can do us no harm right?!
The rich deep colours which have dominated our interiors – hands up who’s already gone dark and navy? Or set to continue, make way for deep forest green. It’ll bring nature into our homes, through fabulous printed wallpaper to sumptuous green velour fabrics. Contrasted with some brights (pinks and yellows) and you’re bang on trend for this season.
It’s a look that compliments the botanicals perfectly, all things natural, with raffia and wicker baskets dominating and those old peacock chairs in high demand. Complete the look with a carefully selected rug, floor coverings are huge. So huge in fact that we’re soon to be hanging them on the walls to bring even more texture to a space.
The chic and minimal appeal of a Scandinavian interior can never fail to impress. Strong furniture features against crisp white with strong accents of black. There’s a lot of raw or light coloured wood mixed in with some boho and botanical vibes too.
There’s a particular feel known as modern rustic which brings a softer more liveable edge to the hard industrial styles shown in magazines. Industrial influences sit with more contemporary finishes to contrast in style but it really works. Think heavy old factory doors against a soft washed white linen and wrought iron against a white wall with an old distressed floor.
