  1. Element textured wardrobes with a stone grey frame
  2. Simple grey floorboards will help to retain the clean, uncluttered look
  3. Blue is the perfect signature colour for this trend
  4. Bright block coloured hanging pendants & gallery wall
  5. Use matte finishes; there is no room for shiny, ‘blingy’ textures
  6. Use block colours & daring patterns to add depth & personality

A great signature colour for this look is blue. Hugely popular for interiors in 2017, it’s a beautifully balanced hue that works perfectly with both bold and neutral accent shades. Simple grey floorboards will help to retain the clean, uncluttered look, whilst through accessories is where the scheme can really be brought to life. Use block colours and daring patterns to add depth and personality to the muted backdrop. This can be done with anything from side tables to cushions. Natural wood tones complement bright, modern colours well, but be sure to only use matte finishes; there is no room for shiny, ‘blingy’ textures here.

Furniture should be simple and unfussy. The use of warm, blonde woods will provide a nod to mid-century design but with a modern twist. Wardrobes from our Element range with textured, natural doors provide a simple, but warm backdrop to the overall scheme and complement the natural materials used in wooden accessories. And for the perfect finishing touch, why not add a classic, vintage radio!

For the accessories and finishing touches, copper can be incorporated into just about any area of the room to make your space unique. Glass and copper vases, copper bowls, or copper candlesticks will all add some bling to the muted side tables, whilst a contemporary statement chandelier will help to create a central focal point in the room. View this range today!
