Colour, texture and pattern are at the core of bohemian decorating. Characterised by an eclectic selection of furniture, colour and homewares, the style is associated with those who have a penchant for whimsical, creative or artistic style. This decorating style invites you to have every trinket and treasure on display, the walls filled with pictures or artworks and the furniture draped with cushions and homewares. Style with a maximalist mindset.
This coastal style is all about fresh white interiors and living beside the sea side. Colours most often used in this scheme are white, blue and yellow with accents of green via indoor plants or flowers. This trend is characterised by classic furniture in timeless shapes and a luxe, holiday feel. Some nautical-themed homewares and stripes are commonly found in this interior style, but over-doing the nautical theme is a no-no. Stick to natural materials such as linen, silk and cotton.
Often characterised as shabby-chic or country, rustic interiors utilise natural materials such as timber, stone, linen and wool. The colour palette can range from warm, rusty reds to sage green, white, or even gingham. The most important thing to remember with this decorating style is: everything old is new again. Vintage homewares, wrought iron and a hand-made aesthetic suit this trend perfectly.
