The Interior Trends You Need to Know About

The Interior Trends You Need to Know About

Trends aren't everything when it comes to interiors. We recommend that you focus on creating a home filled with pieces that you love and that will stand the test of time, introducing a couple of trend-led pieces to update your most-used rooms each season. Interior trends tend to last a lot longer than fashion trends, meaning that you can invest in a larger piece of furniture, such as a velvet sofa or mustard armchair, safe in the knowledge that it won't suddenly go out of style. When choosing trend-led pieces for your home, opt for items that you really love and that have longevity.

Pop of Mustard

Our love for mustard will never fade! Opt for a statement sofa or a more subtle accessory to bring a burst of bright colour into your home. Mustard looks super stylish pared with simple grey or white interiors, but it can also work well mixed with other bold colours such as pink or midnight blue.

How to style: 

Bring colour into an otherwise neutral room with a bold piece of furniture, like this mustard velvet sofa bed. Keep the rest of your room neutral and allow the sofa to take centre stage. - Alternatively, if you like to play around with colour, mix-and-match mustard with a complementary colour such as blush pink or midnight blue. Pair a mustard storage locker with pink bedding, or team a navy blue sofa with a mustard pouffe.

Contemporary Classic

Streamlined silhouettes, glamorous metals and carefully curated accessories all help to give the Nordic look a grown-up twist. This is the classic Rose & Grey look, with velvet sofas, glass side tables, printed rugs and lots of faux plants.

How to style: 

If you keep your walls and floor neutral (we love Farrow & Ball's Dimpse on the walls and light wooden floorboards) the focus of your room will be on the furniture. A velvet sofa, a statement printed rug and a contemporary side table all help to pull this look together. Complete the room by adding several plants to add further colour and texture.

Velvet Dreams

The sumptuously soft fabric doesn't look like it's going anywhere. We have a bit of a crush on velvet sofas, but velvet armchairs and accessories can also reference the trend. Choose easy-to-style neutral colour or create a statement with a bold pop of colour, such as a mustard velvet sofa.

How to style: 

A velvet sofa will last for many years, and you can always update your room with a lick of paint or a few new cushions. Choose a sofa that you have fallen in love with, that you find comfortable and that you won't get bored of. If you don't want to invest in a new sofa, you could introduce hints of velvet into your home with an occasional chair, cushions or a fun table lamp.

Cool Cord

No longer a remnant of Seventies style, cord has made a serious comeback. Add a corduroy cushion to your existing decor, or go all out with a cord chair. Keep the rest of your decor slick and modern to avoid retro throwbacks.

How to style: 

We love our new H.Lis Fox sofa and armchair in a cord fabric, combining a no-fuss silhouette with a stylish wooden frame and soft cord seat. These small pieces of furniture look great in a kitchen, hallway or as extra seating in a reception room. You could also add a couple of corduroy cushions to your existing sofa for a more subtle way to introduce the trend into your home.

Modern Pastels

Pretty pastel hues are given a modern twist as they appear on statement furniture, quirky accessories and storage lockers. Add a hint of one pastel hue to brighten up a room, or mix-and-match two colours if you're feeling bold.

How to style: 

Pastels can be a scary trend to introduce into your home. If you're not big on colour, stay away from larger purchases and instead opt for smaller items that can lift an otherwise neutral room such as a colourful print, a fun plant pot or one of our new mustard made storage lockers in a bright colour. Anyone who already loves colour could consider making an investment purchase such as a blush pink sofa or mustard yellow occasional chair.

Desert Boho

The boho look is big this year, with plenty of rattan, bamboo and wooden detailing. Mix & match with your existing decor for an on-trend accessible look that will work in any home.

How to style: 

You don't have to fill your home with boho-inspired accessories to embrace this trend. One or two boho-inspired pieces work well with simple Scandinavian or classic decor. Add a fun print to your walls, introduce a rattan plant stand or treat yourself to a wicker lampshade to subtly reference the boho look without completely changing the look of your home.
