Homeowners are investing time, energy and resources in creating they dream home. In fact, the UK has seen a 7% increase in monetary spend in home renovation projects. We’ve got that part covered with our full turnkey solutions across construction, architectural planning, interior design, and FF&E. And below, you’ll the key ideas to incorporate in your interior design scheme for this year and beyond.
We’ve seen it everywhere, from statement sofas to beautifully patterned cushions and luscious curtains. We’ve spoken about it before and we love how designer sofas in velvet immediately draw you in, softening your living space, providing a cosy and pretty centrepiece. Here are four of our favourites, they work all year round and are sure to make your living room pop.
If you ever find yourself with an empty corner at home and you’re unsure what would work well, opt for a plant! The organic shape of plants never fails to impress, choose a leafy friend with an interesting pattern and you’ll add an extra layer of interest to your entire decor. In addition, they help purify the air in your home and green never goes out of style.
The power of flawless, high-shine metallics is second to none, and we continue to love them. However, this year we see metals with tarnished surfaces, uneven and mysterious shine. Taking inspiration from the surfaces of crystals, these metals create dramatic effect and should be used sporadically.
The magic of mirrors is undeniable. They introduce more space and more light to smaller living spaces, but also look grandiose in larger spaces. We’re not only referring to mirrors on your wall, but also mirrored or transparent surfaces in your furniture to visually lighten interiors.
Sensorial Glass and Surfaces
Sensorial effects continue to create wonder in the interiors world this year. As our attention spans dwindle with instant access to almost everything, designers look to hold our attention with interesting and unique surfaces. Not only is the sensorial potential of glass endless, but wood carvings, and lacquered surfaces also play a key role.
We love a good statement wall, but you know what’s even more of a statement? A ceiling. It’s an inventive way to transform a room from the top down, try it buy keeping your walls in one colour but them wallpapering, tiling or painting the ceiling to make it the key element of the room.
When making your house a home it is important to know and understand how to implement trends but it is not essential. Remember, surround yourself with pieces that speak to you and those who share your home with you. This is what takes your interior decor from trendy to timeless.
