I am increasingly drawn to all white interiors. Often they use different materials to add contrast but as white works perfectly with light and I crave light more than before this is my ideal wall colour at the very least.
For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to Scandinavian style. And no, I don’t necessarily mean in that globally famous furniture store way. I love the simplicity and aesthetic of Scandinavian style that prioritises design aspects at the forefront of what they do.
Formal dining rooms
I dream of the day when we have a large enough home to have a dedicated dining room. Maybe it’s terribly old fashioned of me but I love entertaining and the idea of a formal dining room with a large table and beautifully styled places settings is exciting.
I have always loved a well-designed bathroom. After all, who doesn’t want to feel luxurious in a place of pamper?! I’m enjoying the trend for quirky bathrooms that include fun prints, interesting fittings and maybe a cute pop of colour here and there.
Tech-free living rooms
For the longest time I haven’t really owned a TV. It’s something that I think is rather ugly in a living room and takes away the social aspect of arranging furniture when all is focused on the black box in the corner or on the wall. I’d prefer a living room without tech that is more of a sanctuary and a place for socialising.
Try as might to resist it but there is something rather smart about matte interior fittings. They offer an interesting texture to a room in a world full of gloss and wood.
If I’m not going for pure white walls then I want to see something high luxe such as this stunning gold foil marbled wallpaper. Stunning.
Grey is such a classy versatile colour. It can add warmth and coolness to a room. Looks fabulous layered through shades and textures. It’s non-offensive and timeless. Love it. And as such a lot of my new home has grey as a featured theme running throughout.
So much of my heart is still with mismatched and gallery walls. Yet here I am eyeing up oversized prints to take their place with something that adds impact to a room.
Gold, gold, gold
Like grey, gold is timeless and spans a spectrum of possibilities. I never quite got into the copper or rose gold thing, but I do feel gold will always be a perfect accent colour.
Finally, I think we are seeing an expansion from the subway tiles craze as we see this trend for geometric tiles. It’s cool, it’s contemporary and it’s darn interesting.
