Smooth or beaten, the warm shimmer of these metals have undeniable appeal. So be ‘on trend’ and introduce a few key pieces to a room . This trend is here to stay as it’s so lush!
The geometric pattern trend is one of our favourite design trends this year and this also shows no sign of losing its edge. Triangular patterns, grids and geometrics are an easy way to add visual interest to any room. They can be used on anything from rugs, cushions, planters, feature walls, or on tiles in the kitchen or bathroom.
The bedroom is an easy space to transform by simply changing your bedding. Bright bold geometric patterns add a striking contemporary feel. Accessorise this with monochromatic throws and cushions to complete this striking modern look. (could use black and white cotton coordinates duvet)
Whether you wish to embrace trends with open arms and transform your living spaces entirely or you like to dabble and mix and match with your existing style you can have so much fun with these looks. The versatility and adaptability of geometric shapes and patterns is ensuring this trend will be here for a while too.
3. Indoor Plants
From succulents to palms and ferns this is a major trend that is growing everyday! Whether you opt for large or small plants, groupings or standalone pots, the addition of living greenery to your home will soften the edges and make your space seem calmer and more welcoming. A large plant in the corner of a room makes a striking statement whist smaller plants dotted around the home add lovely touches of green and texture.
Or you could create an in indoor garden by using wall-mounted and ceiling-hung plants. Whatever your preference by adding a few plants and some new or existing planters you can easily and simply breathe new on-trend life into your room!

With its predominantly white walls and floors, natural fabrics and surfaces, it leaves you free to add your own touch of personality with fun patterns and vibrant pops of colour.
Scandinavian design brings a light, airy feel with clean lines and shapes where subtle colour palettes, natural materials and simple design are key.
