Bringing the outdoors, inside
Now that spring has sprung, we can all look forward to brighter, lighter, and much warmer days – hooray!
But this season, it’s not just about embracing the wonderful outdoors when you’re outside. S/S16 is all about bringing the outdoors, inside. Incorporating nature within a wealth of living spaces is a great way to add a new dimension to any room, especially when it comes to creating a space that is inviting, interesting and calming.
A great way to embrace this trend is to fill your favourite rooms with lots of horticulture inspired fabrics, plants, flowers and natural materials such as cork, metals, wood, and stone! After all, there really is no better feeling than stepping into a room to the fresh and inviting smell of flowers and natural materials.
S/S16 Colour wish list
Colour can completely transform the look and feel of a space, and S/S16 offers a wide range of strong, enticing, and captivating colour ways.
This season, colour ways have moved towards warmer, darker and richer shades, embracing a colour palette that consists of deep ,elegant hues, as well as a number of statement wallpaper designs and interesting fabrics.
Of course, summer has always been about brightening and lightening living spaces, creating calming and tranquil environments that create a wonderful and inviting atmosphere. With this in mind, you can also expect to find lots of dusky pinks; serenity blues and crisp whites making an appearance too!
Texture and pattern
You really will be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking out prints, materials, and textures this season.
From geometric and quilt-like floor tiles, painted wood tiles, and vintage Chinese inspired patterns, through to tailored designs, big floral prints, and dominating wallpaper patterns, this season is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and daring to be different.
Layering metallics is another trend that’s has caught our attention. The best way to achieve this eccentric look is to team soft, warm-toned metals with rose gold, copper, and pale gold metals. This will instantly inject a new and exciting dimension to a vast range of spaces.
