Interior spaces purely designed to encourage a deep sense of wellbeing, promoting a good mood and healthy lifestyle; utilising elements of nature to create an atmosphere that evokes contentment and enhances relaxation.
Bright spaces that utilise natural daylight will also boost happiness and increase our productivity, this will be particularly noticeable in bathroom interiors where we often gather our daily mind-set each morning; White Marble variants combined with sensorial reflections are perfect for generating a fresh canvas to welcome intimate natural accents.

It’s the colour you want to prep for, over the next 12 months this oxygenating hue will take over our interiors with its fresh, optimistic mood. It’s cool, crisp accent conveys a seamless connection between the fast pace, contemporary world we live in and the gentle, whimsical elements of nature.
As traditional neutrals such as beige begin to fade out, this innovative ‘new neutral’ is ideal for kitchen spaces; the soothing mint tone injects soft colour producing a touch of elegance within the hub of a busy family home.

The desire to switch off from the outside world has never been so strong, as we develop our homes into cosy sanctuaries a presence of darker shades is taking over; teak stained woods, black marbles and deep bronze tones aim to encourage a sense of cocooning, intensifying home based activities in a shell of safety.
When these deeper hues are paired alongside pigments of iridescence, crisp angular lines and mystical elements such as crystals they enhance a sought after ‘otherworldly’ feel, keeping the stresses of daily life at bay.

Individuality is one of the most celebrated expressions across the globe right now and this is filtering right through to our home interiors. It’s time to say yes to everything that gives us pleasure, pattern and bright colour pops may seem like a daring combination but when placed in the correct schemes can still create dramatic, yet sophisticated statements.
More interior spaces than ever before are using characterful combinations to generate bespoke schemes just like this geometric kitchen by Sean Walsh, who won our recent customer competition. We will continue to grow our bold collections to capture the imagination of our consumers and encourage their unique, eclectic style that we love.
