Spring Trends 2015
As the mornings gradually become lighter and spring approaches, I took a trip to London to suss out the latest trends emerging for the upcoming season. Browsing around Regent Street, Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road, I visited Liberty, Anthropologie, Dwell and Lombok to name but a few.
An evident trend was the running theme of neon’s and bright colours; something I personally think everyone should try at least once in their home because, well, why not? With hints of 50’s interior inspiration from old fashioned fixtures to pastel dial up phones, the mixture of bold colours and soft tones works well to create a modern and contemporary look. From Aztec prints to tropical plant motifs, the look is finished with delicate glassware and crisp white linens to create a contrasting palette of colours. I was especially fond of these light up bunnies spotted in Liberty; how about that for a sideboard accessory!
Our new spring collection is a vision of bright colours and attractive patterns; promoting the use of colour whenever and wherever possible. New in this spring are our Hand Painted Stools, which are right on trend boasting beautifully intricate patterns to suit many interior schemes. Inspired by our travels across the globe, these stools are crafted in Southeast Asia meaning no stool is the same. Also new this spring is our Black Mother of Pearl collection, consisting of a console table and footstool. Each tiny piece of the beautiful shell is cut to size and carefully inlaid onto the resin base, creating an instant talking point in any home and adding a pretty, feminine touch.
Amongst the vibrant colours, rustic and distressed furniture is still an evident trend, which no doubt compliments the abstract nature of the accessories. I just love this heart-shaped mirror; it really creates a homely feel amongst some of the bold designs. I also spotted these attractive cabinets, pairing complimenting colours to create an over the top distressed effect that is effortlessly modern.
his spring, we upholstered our Soho bed in two new bespoke fabrics which really reflect the freshness of the season. The paisley fabric was made by G.P & D. Baker and is called Latika Teal. We dressed this bed with our pretty Ladder Lace linen for a botanical feel, and accessorised with our metallic Sanford Table Lamps. Following through with the tropical trend, we paired vibrant house plants with rich, wooden tones such as our Mala furniture, creating a relaxing yet fun bedroom environment with plenty of space for additional elements of colour.
