Interior designer at Coco Republic, Joy Simonsen outlines the looks you’ll be coveting at home during spring.
Continuing trends are accompanied by new revival directions. There’s a focus on darker timbers and frames in furniture, and a softer brushed gold finish replacing shiny brass metallics in furnishings and accessories.
We’re seeing lots of 1970s influence in occasional chairs, with statement colours and patterned fabrics. It’s understated luxury with hints of 70s glamour.
Tweeds are returning in upholstery, as well as softer curves in furniture shapes. There’s also a lean towards geometric accents and bold shapes, including arch designs.
Organic luxury embraces natural linens, worn-in look leathers and suedes, and woven textured materials. Beading, fringing, frayed edges and the boho look all remain hot.
Natural timber textures in being used in furniture – think inlay design details and rustic weathering. Textured rattan, woven baskets and potted indoor plants continue to stay on trend.
Two-toned kitchen cabinetry continues, with new inclusions of rustic timbers, soapstone sinks organic materials and hardware.
Outdoor furniture has a greater focus on roped materials, while green and grey are dominant colourways. Continuing the organic, textural theme, hammocks also making a comeback.
