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.

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.

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
