TREND 2: TAI­LORED SIM­PLIC­ITY

Home Beautiful - - THE EDIT -

Graphic and bold, with a fo­cus on ma­te­ri­als, strong shapes and sim­ple fin­ishes, this style takes the in­dus­trial look out of the ware­house and gives it a pol­ish. “Care­fully cu­rated, each el­e­ment in this trend cre­ates drama, from the bold use of colour to the wall mu­rals and ar­chi­tec­tural light­ing, which be­come works of art in them­selves,” says HB’s Rachel Peters. Deep tones – teal blue, pome­gran­ate, dark wood and gold – pro­vide the base scheme. “Con­trast­ing in colour but tonally sim­i­lar, the pair­ing of teal blue and pome­gran­ate brings a rich­ness and depth to a space,” says Sarah Stephen­son of Wat­tyl. “Dark timber and gold ac­cents feel luxe and ex­otic. This pal­ette is bold and ex­pres­sive, but can be adapted with the in­tro­duc­tion of monochro­matic ver­sions of th­ese hues. Lighter ver­sions will ap­pear as softer, pretty tones that in­tro­duce a more flo­ral or boho essence to the de­sign.” Colours: Wat­tyl Aegean Sky, Peach Vel­vet, Fiord Green.

“This bold trend is per­fectly suited to ur­ban en­vi­ron­ments, with ac­ces­sories spare but high on im­pact” ~ Imo­gene Abady, HB cre­ative di­rec­tor
