This is a classic look with simple lines and a cheery colour palette. Straight from the 1970s, Elements has taken a graphic turn with an earthy colour palette, geometric prints and natural materials. Macrame planters are seen throughout and are complemented by rich accent colours and statement lighting. “Follow the less is more” philosophy and don’t over clutter, pick out an accent colour like tangerine or yellow.
MIX & MATCH PATTERN
To counteract the minimalist look, pattern is really key this season – and not just one pattern but a combination of styles used together. The key is to keep the colour palette the same tonally, so it’s all balanced visually. The plain furniture acts as a blank canvas for the patterned cushions and the white floorboards and coffee table works the same way for the terrazzo rug.
Including pattern can be a daunting task, so try introducing a patterned wallpaper or rug in a spectrum of subtle tones such as pink, ochre and ecru. A statement print really adds colour and character to an airy room and light-coloured furniture whilst still encapsulating a calming environment.'
Pantone's colour of 2019 is Living Coral, a warming nurturing shade that’s set to energise and enliven our homes. Taking inspiration from earth minerals and shell clay, this is a colour that evokes warmth and reassurance, creating a calming environment. The soft pastel palette works well with other chalky hues, or for a pop of colour bright oranges and reds will add drama. For earthiness and keeping a muted colour scheme, add raw organic textures in soft furnishings and lighting.
