2019 bounds in with a full force of design shows – and our eager creative eyes are busily absorbing the highlights and trend forecasting insights coming from shows such as; IMM Cologne, Stockholm Design Week, Maison & Object. All helping fuel our passion to keep our images up to date, on trend and advising our clients on what’s hot for the year ahead in the world of design.
Nina, our Head of Creative, also attends key shows such as the Surface Design Show in London. This enables us to create engaging, trend led images and video content for our clients and also strengthens our consultation services where Nina is able to advise and direct your brand’s visual identity.
With plenty of perceptive lectures about design innovations, 2020 trend insights and the latest colours and textures to work with. Some amazing emerging techniques, brands and young ingenious designers creating cool textures from recyclable/recycled materials - something that’s in the forefront of design for our future: Sustainability and Style.
Here’s a few of Nina’s favourite materials and colour combinations from the show. Very exciting to see how we will incorporate these in to future interior design projects!

Will this be the year you ditch the grey daze you are in? Finally inject some colour and pattern in to your home? Freshen up for the springtime ahead with some of our top colour injections and inspirations for every room in your home.
With fabric and paint choices, to colour blocking patterns on walls, have a little fun with these muted pastel hues, then contrast with a little zingy number!
Playful and family friendly
Colour pop perfection with soft furnishings as the central colour injection. Try using bold solid shades on soft furnishings, not only with your sofas and chairs but why not try more colour with your blinds or curtains?
We want to see more playful tones in the home in unsuspecting places. Kitchens tend to be play it safe spaces, but why not paint your kitchen walls in fun family friendly shades to add a little character?
Go bold or be tonal
Bathroom designs became mundane and generic over the last year. However, we have seen a strong Memphis design resurgence with bold pattern walls and prints coming back through across design fields.
Try a tonal selection of colours if the thought of bold colour pops is too much. Try working lighter and darker shades together with subtle more sleek colour contrasts such as this pink sofa. Pattern also adds that little extra umph on the blinds!
