Sophisticated muted metallic mix

This trending look is all about the muted metallic, mixing in a calm sophisticated way. Last year, strong, bold copper took the high street by storm, but this year we’ll see blush, muted copper mixing with calming golds. This look is all about mixing metallics and harmoniously integrating with the interior design as trend accent.

Mixing metallics as a focal point

Every room needs a focal point and within the bathroom which has to be the statement bath. Why not get ahead of the rest with a brushed copper or gold bathtub. Offset it with a muted blush pink or grey colour scheme to create a calming look.

Here is an example of the overall trend, with blush pinks and light grey walls adding a softer approach to golds and copper propping. Here mixing metallics in a subtle way can be seen with the tile choice complementing the metallic propping.


Metallic accent in the home

Within kitchens it’s not just the accessories which hint metallics. The big trend coming through uses metallic splashbacks which we will see more of in 2017. It’s a bold look we’ve seen in bespoke kitchens, but look out for some new year contenders who are getting in on the action with more affordable versions!

If large statement metallics are too much for your sense of style why not try simple accessories of the mixed muted metallic trend? A subtle way to add metallics to your home is by adding metals to parts of the room always left until last for decorating, such as curtain poles. See how these muted metals work together in complementary tones, work these across the home.

‘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.
