Sneak Peek - Botanicals in the home

Our in-house stylist team analyse and interpret global trends translating them into everyday, achievable styles. A recent studio project with one of our long-standing clients saw us use the botanical trend to give their product a fresh, modern look.

The client’s release of their new tile range had to reflect their ethos of a contemporary product that works within the home. We designed a space that could lend itself to changing with trends, with a modern kitchen and tile choice in tones that can easily adapt to several styles within the home.

Plants are very on trend right now with botanicals, jungle prints and the statement cacti popping up all over. The team added a little jungle vibe with linens and crockery, then brought fresh green colours through with other displayed pieces. Finally, adding the succulents and ferns for that extra botanical touch.

Trending- Deep Inky Blues

silver deep blue interior design bedroom cosy2

This year we have been working with blue shades through a range of products and trends, it’s safe to say we know how to take that colour tone in many directions. Opting for a darker shade in a space adds drama and impact, but with the right lighting it can also be made to feel warm and cosy.

Keep it fresh

Mix and match cabinets is another way to keep the look fresh and not go down the moody hues look. Copper key features such as tap design works with this colour.

Don’t want to darken a room too much? The same effect can be achieved by painting halfway up a wall as in this living room. You can still get the impact whilst keeping it fresh.


Take it moody

Dark blues work particularly well in classic, panelled interiors such as period properties with grand fireplaces and dramatic, high ceilings. This space can carry colour!

The kitchen (above) has dramatic, dusky blue cupboards which are on-trend this year. We’ve designed several sets for deep blue kitchens so keep an eye out. You can either go deep and moody, or add bold colour to offset the blue.
