Fresh coat of paint

Is a fresh coat of paint enough?

We are just over a quarter of the way through the year. New year celebrations, done! Start of school, done! Easter, done!

Maybe its time to have a little look around your home and see what you'd maybe like to update or change.

As you know from an earlier article, 'Living Coral' is Pantone's Colour of the Year, so you will see alot of that along with soft pastels, oranges and browns in the shops.

I personally don't follow to much of the trend as they can date your interiors very quickly making them a bad investment. Having said that, it can be fun to incorporate a few new, chick features into your exiting style of your home.

Affordable items that will work best with your current decor are small decorative accessories such as throw cushions, rugs, lampshades and other soft furnishings.

Finishes

A move away from shiny, iridescent finishes of the past will see more natural, earthy, chalk and matte finishes reign supreme. Pastels will also have their moment again - with recent international design festivals featuring hues such as mint, sea foam, pale lemon, soft mandarin and earthy colours such as mushroom.

Your 'wellness' haven

We spend so much time in our homes, why not make them a space of light and calm through colour choice, ethical furniture and de-cluttering.

Go 'vertical' 

Making the most of vertical space with modern decorative molding & paneling, wallpaper and products from new technology such as laminated porcelain and fibreglass (in areas such as kitchens) will be huge.

Unique, hand crafted decor

Hall and coffee table will be adorned with fun, unique design elements that have been made by artisans. Anything that has a sense of humour and feels cultured will work, elevating the overall design aesthetic and create a bespoke feel.
