To update the look in any room of your home, simply add new accessories. Choose an accent colour – this seasons cirtus yellow, rustic red or indigo blue – and buy cushions, lampshades and vases. Keep to one colour but any mix of pattern will work. Look in W.E. Interiors, 557 – 561 Battersea Park Road for inspiration!
Having hot-footed it around the design shows in London and Paris during September, I would love to share with you the best of things I have spotted on my travels.
ORANGE – still very present but now with a more autumn glow rather than a citrus zest. Interestingly sometimes teamed up with pink for that instant India fix!
BLUE – indigo, vintage denim and bright royal blue.
GREEN – forget lime, it is now grass green!
Watch out for TURQUOISE again but now mixed in with soft greens and greys.
YELLOW and GREY – such a smart sophistocated look, now mixed with black and white houndstooth checks.
Upholstery and texture trends:
Detail and yet more detail: buttons, contrast piping, mixed fabics combinations and blanket stitching. Quilted velvets. Coloured and woven rattan look with metal frames.
Geometrics, graphics and subtle 50’s style prints. Florals now in stronger colours.
Animal images on cushions: front half of animal on one cushion, back half on the other cushion – you need to buy both to get the look!
