What have we seen come back this year?

Mid-century modern is back! You will see this across architecture, artwork and colour.

Hues of amber and olive green can be seen across furniture, cushions and accessories.


Kitchens are the heart of the home.

We are seeing exaggerated veining, textural marble, stone and timber. The bench tops and cabinetry have become the feature in kitchens, rather than the splashback.


Textured fabrics can be seen across cushions as well as furniture now.

We love bouclè and the fabric trend has grown far beyond the cream cushion we originally saw.

Retailers have a large colour way of cushions, as well as accent chairs, bedheads and ottomans.


Would you say vibrant colours still have a place in our homes?

Absolutely! We love a pop of colour through artwork, an accent piece of furniture, soft furnishings or even your flowers.


For seasonal entertaining, what are a few pieces we can add to our homes to uplift and still be affordable?

We find this time of year the busiest for Interior Design. Our clients are wanting to have their homes ready for the seasonal break and showcase their homes to family and friends.

A few quick ways to gift your home a refresh, is to add new scatter cushions to beds and your sofa. You can add a pop of colour or keep it tonal.

Fresh flowers are so inviting and add not only lovely colouring to a space but fill your home with a gorgeous scent.

And lastly, lighting! Adding in a floor or table lamp to your entertaining areas ensures the space feels comfortable from the afternoon to throughout the evening.

Affordable home décor is very accessible now, what have you been seeing out in the retailers?

It is great that home décor has become so affordable, as it allows everyone (no matter your budget) to be able to update a space and still with maximum impact. Hand-made and bespoke-looking vessels, organic materials, as well as a gingham print!
