Ready to add something new to your home and shake things up just a little in your interior? Good news: there’s a real abundance of stylish homewares trends out there at the moment, so now’s the perfect time to splash out and indulge. And there’s no need for complete room overhauls – the key is focusing on a statement cushion here, an understated accent lamp there. From iconic British designers to brilliant buys from our favourite high street brands, there’s something to satisfy all budgets and styles…
Elegant and tasteful, bold geometrics is an interiors trend that’s perennially stylish, adding instant gravitas to your home. And these statement pieces work beautifully whatever your preference when it comes to colours, not to mention that they’re easily mixed and matched with any other design themes you’ve got going on. Take inspiration and embrace geometric shapes, from Bethan Gray’s timeless marble chopping board and Tori Murphy’s playful houndstooth throw to Margo Selby’s exquisite weaves.
This eclectic trend is about playful layering; choose bright, rich colours, patterns and textures, especially unusual or ethnic-inspired weaves. Even if your interior has a minimalist feel, these luxurious pieces help rooms become warmer and more enticing. Offset neutral backdrops or bold block colours with these opulent statement designs to show them off to best effect.
An Oceanic Influence
No, marine-inspired doesn’t have to mean kitsch, clichéd, belongs-in-the-bathroom pieces! Think about the soft colours and interesting textures of the ocean – from speckled ceramic glazes and textured ropes to deep sea green glass and wave-weathered metallic finishes. If you love a relaxed, elegant look, the modern marine trend is one for you.
Metallics bring a beautiful contrast to interiors – they’re visually luxurious, particularly when paired with dark backgrounds or greenery. Bored of the copper trend which has flooded the high street? Look to brass accents. The variety is wide; from British designer Tom Dixon’s reliably solid brass pieces to H&M’s eye-catching vases and candles. Brass also works particularly well as a trim – look out for accents on plates, glasses and serving dishes.
