A brand-new Morris home is an exciting blank canvas for the owners to put their personal stamp on from the start. Trends in home decorating are changing and evolving constantly just like clothing and these are the main current looks in interior design.
Bold Colour & Pattern
Homeowners are becoming more confident in their choices of colour – there is a move away from cool greys to warmer, bolder and richer tones. Deep blues and mustard yellows combined with earthy tones look fabulous together. Blocks of colour and combining a mix of patterns, texture and prints is great way to create a beautiful room.
Wallpaper has never gone out of style, but it’s also taken a long time to shed its reputation as old fashioned, but thanks to the digital print age innovation is endless. The range of styles and patterns is endless. Feature walls of mural like wallpaper can bring another world into your room.
Nature and The Environment
Green is a key colour here from the deep, dark greens of the forest to soft sage and fern greens. There is a shade of green for every interior space. Nature inspired wallpapers and fabrics of foliage, flowers, birds and animals are also key to this trend. Textures are also fundamental to this look so using natural materials such as rattan, wood, wools, linens, etc., bring the scheme together. It is all about bringing the outside in helping us to focus on wellbeing, mindfulness and a calmer lifestyle.
With a big emphasis on elemental shapes and repeating geometric patterns, this look is all about simplified but structured design. The recurring patterns and minimal colour palettes found in geometric prints create a sense of routine and structure. Geometrics work well with organic, natural touches to help soften the overall effect.
This is a huge trend in wallpapers and fabrics. The new interpretation of this look is quirky and whimsical with a huge colour palette – from soft muted traditional styles, which work well when contrasted with modern furniture, to electric tones and sophisticated prints. The mixing of cutting edge and tradition is a style that seems set to stay.
Whichever style or combination of styles you choose you new home will reflect your personality and lifestyle and most of all it should be comfortable, welcoming and easy to live in.
