Jules, what interior design trends are grabbing your attention?

“I have always had a thing for retro and vintage pieces which I love to combine with current trends to keep it looking modern. Currently I am still loving the botanical trend, as a plant addict I love the feeling of bringing the outside in. I also like the darker moody paint colours that are being seen more and more, as seen in the Teal Tease blog.


How do you keep up with industry changes?

“I have quite a collection of interior design books and magazines, but these do date quite quickly. I find the most up to date source of inspiration is from all the amazing people I follow daily on Instagram. I am also a Pinterest addict! You can find anything and everything on there!”


Lastly what is your favourite set you’ve styled so far?

“It has to be the Wickes paint job. It was great to work on such a lovely brief and three very different sets that were all about being brave and experimenting with paint colour. Right up my street!”

Vlog-Muted Pastel Hues

Hi Joel Young here, the CGI Stylist at Set Vision and welcome to our next VLog entry!

This month I’ve been looking at muted pastel hues which are set to be seen in different trends across the world of interior design for 2017, including the Terracotta and Desert Escape trends. These muted pastel hues are great because they have a natural base which allows them to work as a collective or as a basis with a diverse pop colour.

Why not grab a brew and a biscuit, sit back and relax and enjoy our latest VLog!

‘Hygge’ Home: the Danish art of living cosily

Main image
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.


Layering texturesMiddle image

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.

Social styleBottom image
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.

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

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 examples.

Surface design that mimics nature

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 kitchen.

Exposing 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 together.

First Impressions

Making an entrance is key to anyone with a sense of style. Let the front door offer a warm welcome to your stylish home. Set Visions CGI department recently worked on these beautiful doorways in three distinct styles to inspire your style statement

1. Reflect the architecture
3214 Aug14 Esteem (MAIN) v6 (DOF) DISTFor this Georgian town house, we designed the CG set around this fabulous door. The use of symmetry in the architecture is reflected in the product design. The pillar box red glazing mixed with the curved design adds personality to the entrance.

2. Show your personality
3214 Aug14 Classic Half Glaze v5 (DOF) DISTIn this 1930s suburb setting our Interior Stylist focused on individual details to personalise this render. The daring pistachio green, polished brass and red stained glass detail sit perfectly together contrasting the white painted brickwork. We styled a mix of CGI foliage and studio photography to maintain the photorealism in the imagery.


3. Perfect fit

3214 Aug14 Renown Small Top (MAIN) v4 (DOF) DISTLess is more with this classic country cottage. The subtle style of the wood grained T&G door and bevelled glass lend an authentic crafted feel giving the shot added depth and persona working together to create the classic country look.
