Move over beige
Dazzling blue is Pantone’s official colour of the year, and shades of blue are continuing to lead the colours of interior design in 2014. The reigning interior colour appears in rich hues of navy, cobalt, peacock blue and vibrant turquoise.
Introduce this colour with impact accents on bed linen, pillows, wall art and if your choice of blue becomes a favourite, make more of a statement with blue coloured interior walls.

Timeless vintage pieces and antiques will make an interior stand out. The heritage of a piece can furnish a room to create a unique interior that is completely your own. Buying items like vintage furniture shows that it has been built to be durable as it will have been around for fifty years.
One of a kind finds can be sought after by looking in antique shops, street markets and online.
Having your wood flooring made from genuine reclaimed oak or pine will enhance character ambience and make more of a statement. Reclaimed Flooring Co.’s engineered reclaimed French oak has been created from antique wine barrels and with the subtle smells of sweet red wine from the wooden boards creates an authentic sense of history as you walk across them, hopefully barefoot.

Going for the classic look, monochrome makes a return into interior design schemes. Create glamour with clean-lined black and white pieces and bold geometrics in rugs or pillows. Tonal weight can be added from the use of neutral shades from grey to charcoal. Contrast can be created using dark coloured accessories by experimenting with texture next to pale upholstery.

Seeking inspiration from nature, inject sage greens and garden floral prints into cushions and bed linen. Natural looking floor boards such as Reclaimed Flooring Co.’s cabin wood patina European oak compliments the busy floral designs in the interiors. Think about country-style bed furniture for a traditional look or mix other graphic patterns for a modern take on the style.
