How to make 2017 interior design predictions work in your home
Posted on 09 January 2017
The interior design predictions for 2017 are all set to continue with the theme of hygge and creating a home that is all about comfort and cherishing cosy time at home with loved ones. And here’s the lowdown on some of the other predictions and how you can use them with our beautiful tiles, to create a hygge haven that will make you proud.
To enhance the popular Hygge movement, there is lean towards the more natural look for this coming year with green being the main colour to watch out for.
This versatile colour works beautifully with natural stone flooring but particularly with Limestone, which adds to the lusciousness of the colour. Green goes beautifully with pale Limestones such as our Gala Tumbled Finish Limestone, with its ivory tones making a soft and interesting interior that enhances spaciousness and light. The Harrington Tumbled Limestone works well too. This tile has both looks and toughness for a stunning family home. Also, consider the Portlanda Tumbled Limestone or the Marino Honed Limestone with its gentle tones of greige.
You’d never think that green goes with grey, but it does, beautifully! Which is why marble and green are a match made in heaven. The sophisticated appearance of our Milbourne Tumbled Marble with its delicate grey veining, combined with an earthy, natural and gentle green, brings a calm balance to the home – much needed in this frenetic world.
Green works wonderfully with darker shades of tiles too such as our Melbury Tumbled Limestone to create a dramatic, cocooning effect in keeping with the hygge movement and creates a contemporary and cosy interior.
Another earthy trend that is set to revive this year is terracotta. The beauty of this warm and vibrant material is that it creates a characterful interior that perfectly reflects the Hygge movement. Our Reclaimed Lubelska Terracotta Brick is just the ticket to satisfy this trend. These beautifully aged tiles are over 200 years old and so have an authentic patina. Just imagine the cordiality of these tiles radiating out from a feature wall, or adding the perfect warming touch to a living area floor.
In 2017 we will be seeing more of the burnished, darker steels and worn or antiqued metals that have started to show up on the pages of the hottest interior mags. So consider Mooredale Seasoned Limestone to accompany your metal fetish. Its moody tonal surface works well with the glint of metal.
Quite simply, a beautiful match – dark wood and green in the same room. So, if you’re a fan of rich, dark wood furniture, then consider Edenbridge Tumbled Limestone to accompany your sage green walls. This handsome stone blends well into period properties and antique furnishings. The overall effect being a home that is truly beautiful.
