Living Coral - a New Spring and Summer Colour Combination

Every year, colour experts "Pantone" pick the shade they predict to be the Colour of the Year. The decision is influenced by all aspects of the world we live in – fashion, art and design, as well as lifestyles.

For 2019, the colour experts have chosen 'Living Coral', an energising shade that embraces softness, warmth and comfort. 

As we’re heading into spring, we're featuring the Tresco fabric collection which pairs the Colour of the Year with vibrant turquoise shades. It's a colour combination that cheerfully reflects the contrast of living coral in the ocean. 

Tresco combines digital prints, bright embroideries, woven leafy motifs and a coordinating damask in a spirited scheme for the modern home. This bright colour palette works perfectly when updating your home for spring and summer.

As Pantone describes 'Living Coral' as a sociable, nurturing colour, the shade is most at home in communal spaces such as living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms.

It’s also easy to add touches of these coral and turquoise shades into a more neutral living space. Incorporating cushions and curtains in fabrics such as Trebah and Abbotsbury give a vibrant, yet fresh look for spring or summer. 

Originally inspired by coral reefs, the colour is easily associated with summer. However, the warm coral shade, combined with terracotta and a deeper teal, offers the perfect means to re-energise an interior ready for the warmer months.

Metallic Minimalism

Metallic Minimalism is this year’s must-have winter interior trend, incorporating pared back metallic patterns to give an understated warm glow to your living space.
Metallic Minimalism compliments simpler interiors with iridescent patterned accents that reflect light and add focal points of soft luminosity.
Although softer metals work well alongside winter neutrals, metallic minimalism can also compliment darker colour schemes in simple living spaces. Adding these warm, reflective surfaces adds another dimension to what could sometimes be considered a flat interior.
As well as the traditional silver and gold, softer bronze shades enhance a moodier interior and work in harmony with a variety of bolder colour schemes.
So, whether you pair metallic minimalism with classic colour palettes or incorporate it into interiors with a darker feel; it is the perfect way to incorporate the metallic trend into your home.

Window Treatment Trend - No 6

Roman Revival

Roman blinds have become a firm favourite for both contemporary and traditional homes. Their flat surfaces are almost picture like, whilst the use of soft folds adds depth and texture. 

They can be made using a huge variety of fabrics in almost any pattern. This gives almost unlimited choice and the lovely drape of the fabric immediately gives an elegant, natural dimension to your windows. 

​They are also a great way of having a more expensive fabric in your home because, unlike curtains which are material hungry, you don't need that much of it.

Their simple design really is one of their strengths as they rise effortlessly and with a smooth and easy operation. Thanks to their timeless shape and design, they add a stylish touch of elegance to any room.
