Trend Spotting!

Woo hoo – 2018 and we’re trend spotting! Here is a collection of random spots:

Well I know it’s not genius to say it’s all about colour – but colours will continue to be bold and strong, gorgeous and rich, with elegant, glowing jewel tones. 

Velvet is a strong style contender and what’s not to love about it? It’s cosy, cool and definitely “in”.

All white interiors are supposed to be passé, however I can’t help thinking I still love a fresh, crisp white or a calm off white – but adding a little organic tone of blue, grey or green is a good 2018 twist. As I always say … “It’s important to stick with what you like” (& I’m only reporting my interiors ‘findings out’!)

 It’s been said for a while that stainless steel sinks are “out” and I agree – keep them in the utility room.

 Accent walls – that’s a bit tricky. The word is they are “out”, but when talking to home doodlers who are still stuck in magnolia world an accent wall is a gentle step forward – so I would say “don’t rule them out!” If you can, focus more on creating texture. Adding character with millwork and wainscoting. Find out more about these fab ways to create well-dressed walls in my March article – it’s so exciting!
