    What’s In, What's Out - Decor Scores for 2018

    THE DARKER THE BETTER

    ultraviolet, decor inspiration

    Winter is (still) here and it's all about staying warm & cosy. Pantone is right on board, making ultraviolet their colour of the year. It's an energising colour, one that mixes well with emerald greens and sapphire blues. If the intensity of these colours it too much for your personal style, tone it down with charcoals, pale violets and natural greens. You'll see this trend extending beyond the living rooms and bedrooms, into shabby chic kitchens and dining rooms as well. Expect to see more warm green and navy blue cabinetry, sinks and accessories. 

    THE BRASS SECTION

    We've been loving brass for a while now, so we're not surprised to see it trending big in 2018. From light fixtures, mirrors and cabinets, to furniture and silverware, you'll be in a brass wonderland all year long. We adore the vintage, shabby chic feel of the metal and love how it pairs with the trending darker colours of the year. 

    FIND THE IMPERFECTION

    There is character and beauty in imperfection. Kintsukuroi - the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold - is a wonderful example. By adding gold leaf to the cracks, you make the pottery new again. A unique piece, even more special than before. From fabrics and natural textiles, like linen and burlap, to hand-painted pottery and furniture - it’s In the imperfect that you’ll find your perfect decor style this year. Shabby chic is still in - it’s just getting a face lift. Get creative, use pieces that have special meaning to you and your family, and truly make your space your own! 

    FLORALS, FLORALS, FLORALS

    In tune with Pantone's colour of the year, ultraviolet, - and our love of shabby chic floral prints - go for bold and colourful flowers this year. Mixing and matching florals with organic textures and neutral palettes is definitely cultivating a new kind of attention, and if full size furniture or walls are a bit too much for your personal taste, try going for smaller decor items - such as pillows, bedding or lamps.
