Last year we saw this trend coming… and for our clients who have a stylish, trend led eye we’ve been able to feature elements of Terrazzo textures and replicate the playful tones with shades through wall colours, props and surfaces.
Our favourite terrazzo sample at the office inspired our own Creative Meeting Room and influenced one of our latest photography shots. We used the soft and playful mixed hues for a fresh and distinctive set design, mixing greens and pinks.
Here the custom table features a more muted terrazzo which is made from recycled materials. This is another draw to using the sustainable surface, a key value to the Set Visions design team.
There’s plenty of amazing terrazzo worktops and in recent design shows we’ve seen some stunning kitchens showing off with it. Here we used a matt pastel kitchen fascia for that cool contemporary look.
Fabrics and colour palette
We have seen plenty coming through in the last year with terrazzo pattern prints on fabric now. Here we upholstered a foot stool with the print.
When working with the terrazzo of choice it’s a good idea to try paint samples and fabric samples out against the texture to see how the colours work as a group. Here we demonstrated balance and tone though texture and composition.

As a market
leader in Photorealistic CGI, Set Visions is no stranger to Total Chaos. The Vray 3D rendering software is renowned within the
industry allowing users to pretty much visualise anything! The recent convention attracted global
delegates including our own home grown, Technical Manager, Danny Austin. The
diverse programme kept Danny immersed in VR and the architecture industry, with
V Ray tools allowing us to sharpen the 3D modelling process and walkthroughs.
Our very own, rather flabbergasted, Danny had the
opportunity to meet some of the heroes of the industry and scooping the top
prize in the Rendering Challenge; Chaos Group setup a selection of content and
challenged the delegates to plan, compose and render visuals within in 30
“The technology advances were exceptionally interesting to learn
more about, but one thing certainly caught my attention - how maintaining a
balance between work and life was the key to succeeding in the long-term
without burning out.
I drew parallels to that and appreciated the excellent
environment that I work in. The Set
Visions team work together for a single goal and help each other when help is
needed. This is not the case everywhere
and appreciate that with a fresh perspective.
I think it is the reason that creativity can co-exist with commerce in a

Long gone the days of pink for girls and blue for boys, shades of dusk pink are hotter than ever, seen in both commercial and residential interiors everywhere. It’s a versatile tone to compliment other colours beautifully making it a great colour to work with.
We’ve collated some of our latest work where shades of dusk pink have brought the interiors to life.
Block colour and
FabricsOn this conceptual product shot we used flashes of dusk pink alongside coral to really make the free-standing baths stand out. Not only does the colour make this shot look great it also gives inspiration to the consumer for their own bathroom colour palette.
Dull office spaces no more. Shades of grey, pink and mauve give this work space a contemporary edge. These colours compliment the soft edges and fabrics used making the space inviting yet maintaining a professional feel.
Go soft or dusky pinkStatement moody dusk pink tiles are the key design feature in this hotel suite turning a simple dividing wall into a design feature. As well as having aesthetic properties this design also gives an identity to the hotel making it unique.
With the Scandi trend still going strong seeing dusk pink sits hand in hand with this trend both creating a soft, calming environment. White painted walls, light oak flooring and furniture, hints of grey all finished off by subtle tones of the soft pink elements.

Will this be the year you ditch the
grey daze you are in? Finally inject
some colour and pattern in to your home?
Freshen up for the springtime ahead with some of our top colour
injections and inspirations for every room in your home.
With fabric and paint choices, to
colour blocking patterns on walls, have a little fun with these muted pastel
hues, then contrast with a little zingy number!
Playful and family friendly
Colour pop perfection with soft
furnishings as the central colour injection.
Try using bold solid shades on soft furnishings, not only with your
sofas and chairs but why not try more colour with your blinds or curtains?
We want to see more playful tones
in the home in unsuspecting places.
Kitchens tend to be play it safe spaces, but why not paint your kitchen
walls in fun family friendly shades to add a little character?
Go bold or be tonal
Bathroom designs became mundane and generic
over the last year. However, we have
seen a strong Memphis design resurgence with bold pattern walls and prints
coming back through across design fields.
Try a tonal selection of colours if
the thought of bold colour pops is too much.
Try working lighter and darker shades together with subtle more sleek
colour contrasts such as this pink sofa. Pattern also adds that little extra umph on
