Trend Alert... Simplicity

Simplify your style with a serene scheme

A respite from chaotic modernday living, simplicity is a trend that aims to bring calm into our homes, creating a sense of breathing space.

Key to this trend is keeping it understated and uncomplicated, opting for materials and furniture in light woods with a handmade or hand-drawn quality, and choosing faded shades in powdery matt finishes on walls, and tactile materials for soft furnishings. Pick colours that are inspired by natural materials – soft grey, pastel pink and delicate duck egg blues, combined with off-white and creamy and chalky neutrals.

Give your scheme added depth with the addition of a deeper charcoal, and a contemporary touch by adding an indulgent contrast, whether that’s a flash of metallic paint, a few copper accessories or a light-catching chandelier.

Soften hard edges, such as wood, metalwork or concrete, with tactile materials such as linen, knits and felt
