Inside story TAKE A LOOK AT OUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TRENDS THAT ARE TAKING 2013 BY STORM F ollowing fashions in interior design could mean giving your home a style overhaul every six months, but if you don’t have the time or money for that (and who does?) why not pick favourite elements from each trend – a lamp here or a wall colour there. It will freshen up your home and show you know what’s what when it comes to interiors. FAUNA CUSHIONS £20, 1 METAL MAGIC Shiny brass and gleaming copper are currently experiencing a resurgence and you’ll see elements of both in designers’ collections, from Carl Auböck’s accessories to cocktail tables by Gabriella Crespi. Bathrooms can be revamped with traditional copper fittings combined with dark blues and greens while a copper bed frame gives the boudoir a contemporary look. POLISHED COPPER FACTORY/SCHOOL LIGHT ABOVE £250, Graham and Green WORDS: Georgina Maric | PHOTOGRAPHS: Getty Images, Shutterstock | STOCKISTS: Go to pg 265 2 BOTANICAL GARDEN Lush, green, British meadow gardens are the inspiration for this trend, with cow parsley and butterflies added in for good measure. Think feminine and delicate fabrics that will breathe some fresh air into your home. There’s also a retro theme going on here, with bold botanical patterns for walls and furnishings. PARLANE RESIN WALL BUTTERFLY £5.99-£8.99, THINK PRINTS AND EDGE FOR ECO-INFLUENCED DESIGNS ‘Paris Design Week, which was held in January, saw the launch of many new collections and was awash with both pastel and bold colours, vintage, eco-friendly furnishings, botanical prints, stripes, lace, jacquards and bouclés, as well as geometrics with an ethnic influence,’ says Sarah Barclay of Barclay Interiors Ltd ( ‘These geometric designs are inspired by ethnic motifs and I loved Zimmer+Rohde’s Geometrics collection including Caleido (left), a graphic ethnic design in deep colours. This “Limitless Marine” (right) from the Jonathan Adler collection for Kravet is stunning with its bold, zig-zag design.’ > APRIL 2013 | 089 89-90 trends 2013FINAL.indd 89 4/3/13 13:58:47
