year we have been working with blue shades through a range of products and
trends, it’s safe to say we know how to take that colour tone in many
directions. Opting for a darker shade in a space adds drama and impact,
but with the right lighting it can also be made to feel warm and cosy.
Keep it fresh
Mix and match cabinets is another way to keep the look fresh
and not go down the moody hues look. Copper key features such as tap
design works with this colour.
Don’t want to darken a room too much? The same effect can be
achieved by painting halfway up a wall as in this living room. You can still
get the impact whilst keeping it fresh.
Take it moody
Dark blues work particularly well in classic, panelled
interiors such as period properties with grand fireplaces and dramatic, high
ceilings. This space can carry colour!
The kitchen (above) has dramatic, dusky blue cupboards which
are on-trend this year. We’ve designed several sets for deep blue kitchens so
keep an eye out. You can either go deep and moody, or add bold colour to offset

This year has seen natural materials coming to the forefront of interior
design and homeware design.
Soft, light bleached woods, with natural
wood grain running throughout.
New Nordic Naturals is all about the
fresh natural aesthetic within design.
Wood cladding and feature wall
pieces are undoubtedly coming back. There’s also a strong stylised
reappearance of wooden cabinets in kitchen design, but with more up to
date tones such as the lighter Nordic hues.
Natural wood 'shelfies'
Natural wood can be brought in to a room in various ways. For instance,
using tiles and wood flooring as a room base. Mix up the tonal woods
with wooden propping and weathered textures for contrast.
Exposed shelving is still hugely on trend, I’m sure you’ve seen
‘shelfie’ posts on social media. Style up your wooden shelving with
tonal propping and textures, and include a few plants for a natural
Bathrooms for 2017-18 are certainly getting more attention, often the
last place to get a thoughtful makeover. Why not try the light wood
tones here? Such as this design using wood tiles to create a feature
wall. Perfectly offsetting the white ceramics in the room.
Just go for it! With this kitchen design we went for it with the
bleached wood tones. Using it on the floor and walls to create a serene,
flowing space. Propping kept muted and stylised with whites and light
greys, plus hints of wood which evokes that Scandinavian touch.

Think bold and
beautiful, dark, moody hues. In the kitchen layer up black herringbone wall
tiles with black fixtures and fittings. Mix matt and gloss finishes and a
variety of textures for a dramatic dark moody feel. Throw in some metallic
finishes to add a touch of luxe.
How to style up this
• Layer black on black to create a dramatic moody feel.
• Use a variety of textures.
• Add luxe with metallic accents.
• Choose black fixtures and fittings.

set to be seen in different trends across the world of interior design

pastel hues are great because they have a
natural base which allows them to work as a collective or as a basis

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016
in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in
strength during 2017. By
bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle
that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite
Surface design that
The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface
design. The textured surface of the wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica
with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble
and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.
By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen,
warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed
tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free
and unifying the look
The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured
wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of
the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting
commentary for any contemporary kitchen.
Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The
matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but
still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look

As the nation falls in love with the Danish
‘Hygge’ home movement - if you have not heard of it yet well you will now - after
all, Denmark was voted one of the happiest places to live, and with this
philosophy in life we totally agree.
In essence ‘Hygge’ means creating a cosy, homely, warm atmosphere whilst
enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. Sit back and take in our trending guide whilst
enjoying a warming cup of tea, the perfect Scandinavian way.
As the nights close in for these wintry months
it’s time to cozy up in thick, cable knit throws, add plenty of rustic charm
with baskets to store and accessorize - perfect for the cozy, rustic look.
Plenty of candles should adorn your ‘Hygge’ home,
creating a warm friendly feel. Lanterns are perfect, style them up in sizes to
create depth. Mix woods and chromes to get a modern/rustic feel.
The living room is a social space that welcomes
the family and friends in for an evening of relaxation and quality times. It’s
key to echo that friendly feel with layered up cushions and throws for guests
to snuggle up on the sofa. Create a welcoming space with scented candles and a
good selection of coffee table books.
After an evening spent enjoying simple life
pleasures in your beautiful home, why not take a calming retreat to your
bedroom? Making this space ease you in
to rest with its deep atmospheric walls and subtle choice in lighting will
create a perfect space to snuggle up and read a book.
