Splatter pattern ceramics, object and cushions.


Steely blues pastels and greys are making a subtle entrance this autumn. You don’t have to paint your whole room to see the benefit, sometimes just a key piece of furniture or signature accessories are enough to make an impact. Try a bold colour sofa with cushions of different patterns and textures to showcase your unique style.

Or how about go for a colour palette cleanse and choose lighter organic colours to encourage a brightness into your space. As the nights draw in, having rooms which bounce light will leave you feeling like the long summer nights are still here.

Alternatively, coordinate black and white interiors with geometric patterns and a splash of colour to make any room classy, as well as sassy.

Print trends looks towards strong artisan pattern statements through loose brush marks and irregular block shaped looks.



Bold Textures


2016 has so far been labelled as the return of the Rattan. A style that was first appreciated in the 70’s, these textures made a comeback in our spring collection the form of statement chairs and dramatic loungers.

Wall art, canvasses and statement rugs can make a real difference when adding finishing touches to your space.

Metal type lighting and decor continue to dominate the interior space. Try partnering with other raw accessories such as marble and wood for a real industrial style look. These materials are not only fashionable but offer a powerful optical trend, expressive patterns collide with playful surface structures.



Bold Statements
