JUMP ON THE HYGGE BANDWAGON

By November 23, 2016 INTERIORS

The evenings have drawn in and the weather is showing us all kinds of damp and grey, winter isn’t coming, it’s already here!

At this time of year I have to force myself outside and only then, when truly necessary. I love a lazy lay-about and cosy time at home, but it can be so easily sapped by social media, devices and a general continuation of the hectic ways of day-to-day life.

A TOUCH OF GOLD- INTERIORS THAT SHINE

At the start of the year, colour trend forecasters are suddenly all over the design press telling us what we’ll be loving over the coming year. Now, I’m not going to tell you what I believe will be the next big trend (although word has it that metallics towards 2017 will be turning to the dark side), instead I’m going to stick with the strong trend of liquid metals we saw rise through 2015, along with Dulux’s colour prediction for 2016 of ‘Cherished Gold’ (more as a term rather than the actual colour!) as an interior accent.
