The Home Trend Everyone Is Talking About

The Home Trend Everyone Is Talking About

Each year one new home trend seems to rise above the others and by the looks of it 2018 is going to be brighter, bolder and better than ever before. Think luxe velvets, antique embroideries, jewel tones and layer upon layer of… well everything.  It’s time to wave bye bye to minimalism and sludgy hues and welcome colour into our homes as well as, our favourite, more is more, maximalism. 

We chatted to a few of our favourite designers, bloggers and those in the trade about what part of colour-gate they were most excited about.

“One thing I've particularly been drawn to is bright colourful curvy furniture. I recently snapped up a beautiful Biedermeier sofa with a curved back and I have loved the shape since! It's much softer than hard edges and curvilinear lines add a calming feel to a room.”

“For me, you can't beat an eye-catching botanical print and it looks like the trend for florals and greenery is most definitely here to stay. Opt for a colourful tropical print wallpaper to make a bold statement or use vintage inspired botanical wall hangings to bring subtle femininity to a room.”
