FLOOR PLAY

Hard-floor­ing trends this sea­son are in­spired by the colours, shapes, mo­tifs and mo­saics of Morocco. Rusty, earthy ter­ra­cotta tones are key, while dark wood and black­ened steel cre­ate depth. Time-hon­oured tech­niques such as ter­razzo and par­quetry add tex­ture, with nat­u­ral sur­faces such as mar­ble up­ping the luxe fac­tor.

TIPS

+ Bal­ance warm colours with a cool el­e­ment – for ex­am­ple, an­chor a busy fea­ture tile with black­ened steel or brass.

+ You can find beau­ti­ful tiles and pot­tery pieces sec­ond­hand on Trade Me. Their lived-in ap­pear­ance will add to this look, which is all about char­ac­ter and time-worn charm.

+ Don’t be afraid to layer dif­fer­ent shapes and pat­terns as long as there is a con­sis­tent colour or el­e­ment that links it all to­gether.

LIGHT­ING

Am­ber bubble pen­dant (on stool), $550 in­clud­ing fit­ting, from Vitrine. Tom Dixon plane ta­ble lamp (on floor), $805, from ECC. Cot­ton shade, $375, from Mad­der & Rouge.

Stool from Citta. Walls painted in Re­sene ‘Coast’ and ‘Ex­plorer’.

LIGHT TOUCH

A hand­made qual­ity is key in this sea­son’s light­ing. Hand-blown glass, wo­ven jute and Ja­panese-style fab­ric pen­dants all em­body this look. Brushed brass in curvy forms is a con­trast­ing yet com­ple­men­tary style.

TIPS

+ There are some amaz­ing ta­ble lamp de­signs around at the mo­ment; choose your fave and make it a fea­ture piece.

+ If you are get­ting pen­dants wired in by a pro­fes­sional, look for a light fit­ting with an in­ter­change­able shade so you can switch it out down the track.

+ Con­sider the size and ceil­ing height of your space as it’s im­por­tant that a pen­dant suits the scale of the room. Ask your elec­tri­cian to set up your light at var­i­ous lengths and leave it for a few days be­fore per­ma­nently wiring it in so you have time to live with it be­fore mak­ing a fi­nal de­ci­sion.

TEX­TURE TALKS

Lux­u­ri­ous plush vel­vets and light linens con­trast with more rus­tic tex­tures this sea­son. Pair gold, blush and creamy hues with botan­i­cal prints and leafy de­tails to cre­ate a peace­ful, na­ture-in­spired re­treat.

TIPS

+ Lay­er­ing lots of luxe fab­rics will give your space a warm, invit­ing and nur­tur­ing feel. For this look, more is more!

+ Hang linen drapes at ceil­ing height and al­low them to pool on the floor for a lav­ish, ro­man­tic state­ment.

+ Floor cush­ions and ot­tomans sup­ply an in­stant sense of re­lax­ation, and rounded fur­ni­ture shapes will in­crease this feel­ing of soft­ness and wel­come. Keep a slouchy bas­ket nearby to tidy away cush­ions and throws when not in use.
