Here at IDEAS we love the clean cut elegance of Scandinavian inspired interiors which usually start with a natural colour palette teamed with sharp,simple and well designed furniture pieces. We feel this is a scheme that works well for every home in the house whether it’s a calm living space or a bright and open kitchen. We have recently completed a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom for a lovely set of customers who used their kitchen as the starting point for an overall Scandi inspired design throughout their home – We designed a stunning Secound Nature ‘Remo’ handless kitchen finished in ‘white’ and ‘graphite’, a beautiful fitted bathroom and the most stunning floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes in their master bedroom, see the pictures below for all the cleverly designed spaces we helped them create.
The trend for metallic and coloured taps started in late 2016 moving into 2017 with designer brands bringing out some beautiful designs but with a high price to match, however fast forward to 2018 and we see more of our own suppliers producing some on-trend designs at very reasonable prices. From Cassellie’s beautiful Rose Gold bathroomware including shower heads, taps and radiators to Quooker’s limited edition gold plated boiling water tap. Pick matte black ironmongery in your bathroom to compliment the monochrome look or a stunning rose gold tap in your kitchen for a metallic nod to the trend.
It may not look like Spring outside but here at IDEAS we are looking towards Spring and brighter, lighter Interior trends especially those in kitchens and bathrooms. One of our favourite trends of this year is greenery – plants are no longer just for the outdoors, 2018 has seen a huge surge in people bringing wonderful greenery into their homes.
We have many dotted around the showroom and in our homes, as well as detoxifying the air the striking greenery looks beautiful against almost any backdrop. You will also see this trend In wallpaper prints, textiles and paint colours - we love to mix bold tropical wallpaper in bathrooms together with gold brassware for a striking interiors look.
We predict the rise of darker kitchen and bathrooms in 2018, creating a luxurious and surprisingly spacious feel to any interior space. The contrast of black against white ceramic feels clean and fresh with the odd pop of gold for an extra chic feel.
Many of our suppliers such as Frontline and Cassellie have bought out many on trend ranges this year from black baths to matte black kitchen taps we love this monochrome trend and can’t wait to design some interesting spaces for you all this year. Why not pop into the showroom to see us and talk about how you can bring this beautifully modern trend to your home.
