Word on the Grapevine about 2017

Our senses will once again determine the essence of our homes – the coziness and comfort of a warm nest where we can slow the pace of our lifestyle and recharge our batteries. That feeling of coming home which will find its materialization in our desire for interiors.

All of a sudden we all are experiencing a growing desire to reconnect with nature.

Wood will be widely used, counterbalanced by materials like marble and plexiglass. The Nineties are back with velvets, geometric shapes and tartans.

Think exposed brickwork, the use of cement and blown plaster finishes, the pairing of metals with raw, natural materials such as cork, wood and clay.

 Plants are going to be the must-have decoration for the house and they will inspire the colour palette for wall paint together with Africa influences

There is a huge contrast in fabric textures and new collections are awash with plush velvets, raw and organic linens, and ethereal sheers.

Teal, blue,mustard and lush greens, inspired by Pantone’s colour of the year will be really popular. 

At this year’s Milan furniture exhibition, the designers influence from the colours, shapes and materials of the mid-century era was clearly evident. This retro vibe won’t be restricted to furniture but will include lighting and accessories that are inspired by iconic designs

Tropical Leaf Prints

Tropical leaf prints

Bring a touch of the Tropics into your home. Large leaf plants and ferns make a dramatic impact. Even a single leaf, framed and placed on a plain wall looks amazing.

Take a look at these, Woodland Ferns or Manila, from Sanderson. Canopy or the fabulous Eden Roc from Christian Lacroix. Komodo Leaves from Thibault, Acanthus from Designers Guild, Palm Jungle from Cole and Son or Coco de Mer from Ralph Lauren.

These are just a few of the amazing wallcoverings, visit our wallpapers for more inspiring ideas.

 

 

World Maps

Maps.

We seem to be going overboard for maps in 2017 and there are many easy ways for you to bring them into your home. They create a focal, conversational, inspirational and very educational look to your home.Old vintage maps can be framed and hung on the wall.

Upholstered Headboards

Beds will change dramatically in 2017, with upholstered bed heads set to replace the timber bed frames currently dominating the market.

 They’ve been a staple in luxury hotel bedrooms and celebrity homes for a while, but now we’re all falling head over heels for the bedhead trend, 

Whether you opt for the classic model in neutral colour with buttons, or a plush one in velvet, a bedhead is an easy way to update and add instant glamour to a bedroom.
