Tone on tone colouring or layering, is a decorative technique that takes a single or a few colours and uses different saturations throughout the space. The result is a room that can be dramatically transformed just by lightening or darkening of the colour shade.
Jane says: “Using tone on tone colours, painting furniture or covering soft furnishings in a similar colour to the walls,
with a limited palette of perhaps only two colours is a great idea, especially in small rooms. The light reflects differently off each surface so it looks as though 20 colours were used instead of one or two.”
Geometric patterns can add eye catching vigour to your room. This trend is all about balancing colours, prints,
and textures so they all seamlessly enhance one another without overwhelming the viewer.
Jane says: “Large scale prints and geometrics will continue to become more widely used especially in wallpaper and there is an increasing trend to move away from flat or plain surfaces. Interestingly geometric designs are being used more and more as a prominent feature in kitchens and the use of statement glass or ceramic tiles with bold designs are becoming increasingly popular.”
Having some singular furnishings in your home, especially if you’ve had a hand in creating them yourself, make for a personalised signature style.
Jane says: “Upcycling and recycling I’m sure will continue as the growing trend to seek out artisan accessories and one off pieces is very much on the increase.”
