This year there are six trends worth knowing about. Whether you follow trends or incorporate the odd one within your design scheme, the wonderful thing about them this year is their rather enduring and timeless appeal.
Shades of Blue.Whether you indulge in a midnight blue, cobalt or fresh powder blue, the impact will be immediate.
If painting a room is a little too daring for you, look for beautiful cushions and throws or consider recovering a sofa. Rich Dark Walls.Blacks and deep charcoals are very much on trend.
The effect dark walls have on a space is dramatic. Make sure the room has good natural sunlight as well as a smart lighting plan for the evenings. This scheme will allow your colourful homewares and accessories to pop. Macrame.
A little bit of a 70s inspired trend, knotted artworks, rugs, or wool cushions are a must to soften the feel of your room and add a textural element.
We look forward to sharing our other three trends in the next design leaf article. Enjoy investigating these ideas and creating a beautiful life. For more information on furniture and homewares or any design queries email: firstname.lastname@example.org
