1. Rustic Vogue

Starting with an interesting one, Rustic Vouge.

Sounds intriguing right?

But what exactly is Rustic Vouge and why is it so popular?

Rustic Vouge is a sophisticated update to the popular interior trend Cottagecore.

Cottagecore is a modern interior aesthetic inspired by idealised rural living. Rustic Vouge plays on this but encourages us to go further, by making full use our unique living spaces, and injecting rich character into our homes.

Discover your personal taste in the Rustic Vouge

Rustic Vouge is a new fun way of decorating our interiors with quirky pieces.

Its also really easy to apply. Just think about adding unique textured pieces. Which can be antiques or statement accessories, all very open ended. It really is up to you.

We like to recommend the allotment fabric collection as a great option for Rustic Vogue enthusiasts. As it is full of fun playful farm inspired prints, such as allotments, dogs, horses and of course florals. Each design brimming with eccentric characters.

2. Contemporary Country

Sticking with the theme of comfort, Contemporary Country also uses elements of the rural lifestyle.

But what makes it different to Cottagecore and Rustic Vogue?

Well, Contemporary Country relies less on introducing items, instead focusing on changing the overall feel of your home. In turn, creating a cosy and inviting space.

Fabric collections like Heritage are terrific options for the Contemporary Country look. Adding a mix of fun prints to spruce up standard curtain design.

3. Distant Shores

Have found yourself longing for tropical getaways this last year?

If so, then Distant Shores might be the trend for you.

Distant Shores acts as a contemporary edge to classic floral design, featuring bright tropic visuals, subtle monotones and a soft, yet colourful palette.

Distant Shores is a refreshed take on classic floral prints.

By introducing images of tropical greenery into our home, Distant Shores instantly creates a calm and relaxing effect.

You can achieve the Distant Shores look with wallpaper or fabric. Look for something that reminds you of a favourite holiday destination and run with it.

Fabric collections that have an excellent Distant Shores vibe include South Pacific and Malibu. Both instantly provide that special destination feeling.

Further to the announcement of Dulux’s Colour of the YearBrave Ground‘, earthy ground tones have been making a come back. And its all part of a return to nature.

Earthy Ground Tones set to simplify modern living.

With many of us living digital lives, this trend looks to help us reconnect with nature once again.

To apply this style to your home, use warm colours like rust, amber and browns. This works best with fabrics or window furnishings. By adding these simple colour touches around the house, it will begin to feel like a very welcoming space that you really want to spend time in.

So why not indulge in Earthy Ground tones for your home and embrace the natural world once more.

5. Eco Chic

In the similar vein to Earthy Tones, Eco Chic brings things back to basics.

But how so?

Well Eco Chic pushes a renewed focus on well-being and sustainability. Both of which were tipped at last year’s Decorex show as essential staples of modern interior design.

If you need an idea of where to source Eco products, Greenscreen Sea-Tex is an absolute must for your consideration. These are sustainable roller blinds made from recycled ocean plastic waste. They look and function exactly like normal blinds but are eco-friendly.

The perfect home office will increase your productivity tenfold.

Now comes the fun part, styling your office! A great quick option to complete a professional look are blinds. Particularly, roller blinds for complete privacy or silhouettes for a twist of natural light.

If it sounds good so far but you are worried about finding room, don’t worry. There are other options to create temporary rooms such as track shutters.

These act much like normal shutters but sit on a track system. This means they can be opened and closed whenever you need an extra room. Ideal for open plan spaces, its the easiest way to create a new office when you need it!

Maximalism is having a major resurgence in the interior world.

A reaction against minimalism, Maximilsim an excess of style and character. Think more is more.

Lets spend more time outside with back to outdoor living!

Often our gardens act as an extension of our indoor area. With a patio or grass playing an instrumental part in our general well-being. And so as the warmer weather arrives, we should look to spend more time outdoors reconnecting with nature and of course, each other.
