Trend: Keeping it Neutral.

Do you change your mind more often than your bank balance would like? Worry not; staying ahead of the latest trend need not cost the Earth.
The secret to being able to follow the latest trends in an affordable way is to invest in the basics first. With a solid foundation you can go about accessorising with as much colour, texture and pattern as you like.

Beige does to your interior what black does to your outfit; it’s adaptable and easy to add to. The ScS Strand sofa is a great example of this, the cosy, chunky fabric works well with any colour and creates the perfect haven for you to sit back and relax. To create a warm and on-trend style, try layering chunky knit throws and textured cushions for an ultra-cosy look.

Lesson number 2. Experiment with your accessories.

With a neutral decor you are able to experiment and channel your weird and whacky style ideas through adornments such as fabrics, ornaments and lighting.
A cushion here and there, a nicely framed print and a strategically placed rug can dramatically brighten up any room, without creating anything too permanent.

Lesson number 3. Choose a wood and stick to it.

A concise wood colour has a significant effect on any room. It unifies all your pieces and creates a less cluttered feel, whilst making your room feel that little bit bigger.

Lesson number 4: Go forth and create the room of your dreams!
