Seasonal Trends 2015

01.Dove grey

Dove grey is a wonderful neutral alternative to cream or taupe and brings a feeling of modernity without feeling austere. The hue has a beautiful soft quality that creates a calming feel and encourages us to unwind, making it a gorgeous grown-up choice for the bedroom.

If an all-dove grey scheme feels a little too cool for you, it can also work well as an accent shade in more colourful interiors. Dove grey furnishings or lighting accents will cut through bolder colour schemes and balances the vibrancy for a harmonious decorating idea.

02.Sculptural style

While grey may not be considered to be the most exciting colour in the palette, its elegant simplicity allows you the opportunity to play with shape and texture instead. Bring an element of contrast into your scheme to create a feeling of balance; try pairing oversized curvaceous shapes with sculptural pieces to create harmony in a room. We’re also blending soft, touchable textures such as wool and felt with concrete finishes for a cool, urban decorating idea.

03.The dark side

Although grey is making waves as SS15’s most stylish neutral hue, the bolder, darker ends of the grey spectrum are also gorgeous interior design choices. Look out for charcoal grey with soft mocha undertones to bring a little warmth back into a space and try adding silver or pewter accents to the scheme to prevent it from feeling flat. If you’re going all out with darker hues, make sure you spend some time working on your lighting scheme. Numerous floor lamps or several elegant pendant lights will keep this decorating idea chic rather than scary.

04.Lighten up

If you’re a colour magpie, the grey trend could still work for you as this versatile hue is the perfect partner for spring’s beautiful pastel shades. Try blending gorgeous lilacs, powder blue and blush with stormy greys for decorating ideas that are brimming with Scandinavian cool. To really harness this contemporary Urban vibe, try introducing furnishings in pale oak with a mid-century classic style and keep surfaces sleek and engineered.
