Choice of material has always been integral to interior trends, from solid wood to soft leather, but next season it is all about precious stones. Anna New York’s range of home accessories, spanning clocks to cutlery, all use semi-precious minerals such as crystal and agate to stunning effect. For the more understated look Nordstjerne have utilized marble’s classic coolness and subtle design across their latest ranges, including bathroom accessories and cushion covers. Look for faceted textures, seen across the Kartell range, to precious stone patterns seen at Missoni Home, as a stylish alternative to the real thing.
Scandi style gets a breath of fresh air with the new Nordic hint. Cleans lines and a soft color palette are still staples to this look, but rustic textures and playful prints get incorporated to give it a modern touch. Patterns and slogans also come into play, look for tableware from Bloomingville to update your everyday home style and chunky knit soft furnishings to give your living space a fresh update.
Tiles have made a big come back, and we aren’t just talking flooring or wall coverings. Tile prints and patterns have been see across brands and disciplines at this season’s Masion, a sure sign of things to come. A contemporary take on the geometric trends of last season, the Tile trend can be seen in prints and patterns across everything from dinnerware, decorative accessories, tableware and wallpaper. Pols Potten have a range of mix and match tableware that effortlessly conveys the timeless tile trend, or why not add a statement wall of Christian Lacroix’s Wall Patio wallpaper to really bring the trend home.
Interiors always benefit from an injection of metallic style, and according to the trend makers at Maison this seasons’ interpretation of the perennial trend is brass. Sophisticated and decadent, brass finishings have long been a style staple of discerning home owners. This year brass is making an impact across the home but especially in lighting, with many various styles available you can find the perfect fit for your space. Designers such as Tom Dixon and Jonathan Adler are fans of this material and have plenty of fabulous decorative accessories available for you to add the perfect finishing touch to your space.
A moody dark hue; Petroleum Blue is a bold color choice for any space but it is the on-trend color for interiors this season. Make it work by layering with other softer shades and choosing just a few key pieces to incorporate into your interior scheme. Roberto Cavalli’s latest soft furnishing offerings capture the tone perfectly and will make your living room or bedroom right on trend.
