Do try this at home…

Loving our latest window displays but looking for a new way to create this look? Here are some schemes that will help you do so:

Oriental themed

These looks both embody an oriental vibe, however in completely different ways. Here we have put together some schemes inspired by our current window displays.  One showcases a busy, bright and beautiful wallpaper that will be the star attraction. Matched with fabric in an upbeat pink, and a textured semi sheer to keep the space light, this scheme is perfect to bring spring into any space. Bring in accessories using the vibrant range of colours in the wallpaper.

 

Secondly, this geometric design is a modern twist on traditional oriental patterns. The bold blue lends itself to blend beautifully with grey interior. The navy and white wallpaper is fresh and fashion-forward, so paired with sleek, smart accessories this makes a sophisticated, stylish scheme.

 

 

 

Children’s Space

This safari themed scheme is perfect for any kid’s area. The gold accessories are a nice touch to bring in some warmth and richness. Using soft pastel shades alongside crisp white creates a flawless balance. This look is fun without being too silly, it would fit in admirably with any contemporary interior.

 

This second scheme for a children’s space, has a more vibrant vibe. Stunning pops of colour bring this unusual wallpaper to life. Funky accessories make this scheme accessible for children of all ages. This scheme moves towards a warmer look, avoiding the typical grey colourways.

Feature Fabrics

A big trend to hit interiors throughout 2018 is tropical print, and this spring we are set to see a rise in tropical themed interiors; from colourful cushions to humble house plants.  There are plenty of ways to commit to this trend, from a simple accessory swap to a total restyle.

A great way to inject the tropics into your interior is through the use of a statement fabric. The creative use of a feature fabric can prove to be less overpowering than of wallpaper, especially with a theme such as this. Perfect examples of this are Jab and Matthew Williamson fabrics! If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, try Cole & Son’s famous ‘Palms’ wallpaper with matching fabrics coming soon!

Another trend to hit big this season is a pop of colour! Beautiful bright, bold colours are rapidly making their way into interiors. Fabric is the ideal way to invest in this trend. It’s ability to be used in small doses, such as for cushions, means its easy to create the look you desire.

If you are still looking for a feature fabric that will tie in with your existing scheme, Harlequin have a fantastic range of bold designs to brighten up any space!

2018 is also set to be the year of leather and velvet! Think leather upholstered headboards and quilted chairs to add a bit of glamour to the interior. These luxurious looking fabrics are becoming even more popular with velvet to be the fabric of choice for statement soft furnishings. Clarke & Clarke’s faux leather collection has a fabulous selection of colours from bright and bold to soft neutrals and metallics. If you are thinking that your dream velvet isn’t up to the test of family life, G P & J Baker’s stain repellent velvet collection is here to help! These velvets are not only ultra soft but are also not going to break the bank.
