Navy Tones – Natural Minerals – Autumnal – Brass and Copper Accents – Black and White – Velvet Furnishings – Textured Tiles

 

Navy Tones

Navy is the new ‘grey’ of 2018 interior trends!

Navy has taken over the grey tones of two years past and is not going anywhere anytime soon. If anything, it only touched the surface in 2017. The colour itself produces a calming and peaceful ambience, bringing the outside in.

Tips:

When using Navy tones, don’t be afraid to do tone on tone on your walls with a stunning shade of paint or wallpaper, dark navy tiles to separate a white kitchen or bathroom, soft furnishings and of course light fittings to act as the main feature of the room.

Velvet Furnishings

Rumour has it Velvet is on the outs, but we beg to differ! Everyone loves Velvet for the soft, luxurious and rich feel it adds to a room. We think Velvet Furnishings will continue to surge through 2018 in the forms of lamp shades, sofas, chaise lounge, curtains, throws and pillows.

Tips:

Keep it subtle by adding a Velvet lampshade or two to your Velvet interiors for that extra touch of class.
