Interior trend focus - Sustainability Minded

More of a movement than a trend, sustainability and the use of organic materials have become prominent in interior design. Key pieces are carefully considered investments, the design aesthetic is as important as the origins of the materials used. Sustainable design incorporates reclaimed wood, recycled glass, and organic textiles.

These design values are intrinsic to our client’s organic wool-based bedding. Here we used a neutral colour palette and the use of natural materials are combined to create a relaxing, mindful space that is a perfect backdrop to showcase their products.

Get The Look: Industrial luxe entrance hall

First impressions count and the entrance to your home is no exception. Our modern classic design scheme has industrial touches with luxe brass detailing that can easily be translated to your home.

When updating your hallway consider the practicalities. Here we used a hardwearing oak floor, making sure the surface can stand up to the demands of the space. If budget allows why not invest in a statement black and white floor tile or crittall section dividers? Both will add architectural detail and help to elevate the space.

Storage is an important element of a design scheme; we included a sleek console table to quickly tuck away keys and unopened post.

Get The Look: Inspirational entrance

With 2021 ahead of us, why not take the opportunity to get through that DIY ‘to do’ list or even redecorate a space! With 2021 ahead of us, An area of the home that often gets overlooked is the hallway, a strong colour palette with lots of foliage and accessories can make the space look considered and welcoming.

Make sure the space is functional with plenty of hooks for coats and bags to avoid it becoming a dumping ground. A half-painted wall is a clever design choice, it keeps the space light and airy whilst preventing the lower half getting grubby from pets shaking off the rain or kids coming through in muddy sports kits.
