This month it’s all about colour. Our creatives have kept the trend innovative and fresh using bold shapes and balancing key block colours for this sculptural look. Our team have pushed the boundaries with this trend through set design and home inspirations.
Block colour in your home
Break up large spaces with colour blocking. The graphic shapes contrasts against the
delicate design of this furniture.
Why not use a key piece of furniture to create the colour
block? The mid-century style works
perfectly in this fun living room.
Contrast colour and texture
Don’t be afraid to mix contrasting colours and shapes. The pink statement chair radiates against the vibrant blue wall.
This inspirational colour palette illustrates how colour can bring new life to old objects, mixing industrial shapes with textile surface designs.

For this classic look we mixed vintage style printed tiles with an
indulgent slipper roll tap bath. Try accessorising
with delicate wild
flowers and rustic woods to add texture and colour.
How to style up this look.
• Decorate with a palette of soft greys and country pastels.
• Choose tiles with a charming bold vintage pattern.
• Antique taps for the basin and bath complete the look.

photography is a perfect way to create a buzz around product launch. A
recent project saw our Capture team adapting their photography disciplines from
the studio to a fantastic industrial location.
Our international client has used the imagery to promote
their commercial launch of surface design, bridging creativity and product
practicalities. Our team worked alongside Camira fabrics to develop the
creative imagery to run alongside their existing brand strategy.
Everything from location scouting to the editorial art
direction was managed in house by our team. Following the successful location
shoot, the images will be used in the Surface Design Spotlight at Surface

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.

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 Set Visions team
love an innovative photography challenge.
Our Capture team worked alongside one of our long-standing clients who

This year has seen natural materials coming to the forefront of interior
design and homeware design.
Soft, light bleached woods, with natural
wood grain running throughout.
New Nordic Naturals is all about the
fresh natural aesthetic within design.
Wood cladding and feature wall
pieces are undoubtedly coming back. There’s also a strong stylised
reappearance of wooden cabinets in kitchen design, but with more up to
date tones such as the lighter Nordic hues.
Natural wood 'shelfies'
Natural wood can be brought in to a room in various ways. For instance,
using tiles and wood flooring as a room base. Mix up the tonal woods
with wooden propping and weathered textures for contrast.
Exposed shelving is still hugely on trend, I’m sure you’ve seen
‘shelfie’ posts on social media. Style up your wooden shelving with
tonal propping and textures, and include a few plants for a natural
Bathrooms for 2017-18 are certainly getting more attention, often the
last place to get a thoughtful makeover. Why not try the light wood
tones here? Such as this design using wood tiles to create a feature
wall. Perfectly offsetting the white ceramics in the room.
Just go for it! With this kitchen design we went for it with the
bleached wood tones. Using it on the floor and walls to create a serene,
flowing space. Propping kept muted and stylised with whites and light
greys, plus hints of wood which evokes that Scandinavian touch.
