BLOCC Interiors works hard to stay ahead of the trends to ensure we are cutting edge!
Our library of fabrics, wallpapers, accessories, lighting and furniture are continually updated and are sourced from around the world.
We travel to major European cities to gather inspiration and influences, as well as attending trade shows to keep ahead of the game!
We would love to share a taster of we discovered for 2019…
Inspired by Nature – Earthy Tones with influences from spices and nature, very neutral with mustards and terracotta.
Blush still very evident in colour palettes but less of the deep Blues and Emerald Greens than last year.
Dulux Colour of the year is “Spiced Honey” and Farrow and Ball have introduced 9 new colours to their range to include Jitney and Treron.
Virtuous Living – Ethical, sustainable living with focus on recyclables and handcrafted goods.
Organic, unique shapes with textured finishes featured heavily with natural fabrics and finishes like rattan being prominent.
Soft furnishings were layered and gathered with creating a soft relaxed feel. The overall feel is a lot less crisp than last year.
RAW – Natural interesting shapes, Bronze and Golds and Matt Finish Metals – No Chrome. D A R K – Use of Dark Colours, Metals and woods.
LIGHT – Light Colours were, layering pales with whites.
ASIAN – Strong Asian influenced pieces in furniture, artwork and accessories
Lots of curved furniture featured this year, circulars in nests and collections of small tables or mixed size tables with finishes in brushed gold and bronzed metals.
Black Metal furniture in strong, bold styles was also very popular. Upholstered furniture had earthy tones and fringing to the edges.
Placing in pairs i.e. pairs of side tables with a pair of table lamps next to a pair of oversized plant pots, in front of a pair of mirrors.
MIRRORS & ARTWORK
Collections of mirrors hung as a gallery on brackets and floating shelves used to create a focal point in a space.
The artwork and wall décor was layered with the use of mixed frames. Decorative plates, trays and discs were also used as collections or a mixture.
Prominent pieces of artwork positioned off centre provide an interesting feature.
Small individual wall shelves, displayed as a collection, with plants or ornamental objects on.
ACCESSORIES & STYLING
Large oversized plant pots and vases, use of large, bold foliage, less floral, more of the interestingly shaped twigs and large leaves.
Accessories were organic and textured giving the impression of handmade pieces rather than mass production.
Dressing included bundles of books, sculptures, runners on tables and table cloths and non-traditional centre pieces on tables made up of a collection of interesting items.
Watch this space! We will be reporting again in the New Year with new ideas and colours!
