We are happy to welcome Rosemary Collard, a visual digital artist to our site! Thankyou for allowing us to share your work.

The last of our 2020 trends is SCHEME 6 - BEACH BLUES  WITH MINT - A backdrop of neutral greys or pale blues with focal points of art and furniture using bright blues and greens

Our 2020 trend excursion continues - 

SCHEME 5 - SUNSET ORANGES AND PINKS

Burnt orange - straight from the 70s. But the twist is it is partnered with soft beige, greys and apricots, and pale toned pink - a perfect sunset!

Instantly add colour and warmth to your room!

75% off all throws until the end of July! 

We thank Linda from journey jottings for her input as we looked at an 'outback blue' colour scheme.

It helped to have images and her experiences understand the textures and colours of the outback of Australia.

2020 trends

SCHEME 4 - OUTBACK SKY BLUE AND RED

The bright blue sky, with rich unfinished timbers become a sanctuary away from cold metallic computer land. 

Add corduroy, upholstered bedheads, black matt kitchens, and collections of individual pieces of art on the walls.

2020 trends

SCHEME 3 - NEON PINK  AND TEXTURES 

Pops of hot pink with salmon and bleached timber, against  neutral grey or buff backdrop. Neons and retro revitalized furniture add contrast.

2020 trends

SCHEME 2 - CITRUS WITH POPS OF BLOSSOM

Citrus colours - lemons and oranges provide a backdrop with a pop of fuscia, purple, dark green or desert red

2020 trends

SCHEME 1- CHAMPAGNE AND SILVER

The chalk and Scandi look evolve with elegance.  Nature and luxury meld. Sliver and champagne colours provide a backdrop to pops of cinnamon and toned pinks.

Each year in July we look forward to what the 2020 design trends will be. Over the next weeks we will explore different ideas.
