Trends 2016

By Georgia Langridge, Interior Designer, Frobisher Interiors


This summer we are seeing an epitome of sophistication; a trend where more is more. For a high impact, luxurious look team an elegant mix of patterns, textures and finishes, by focusing on depth of colour through plush velvets. An example of this look is deep purple tones accompanied with greens and/or blues.


Another trend which is very apparent this season, is the “Summer Bach” feel. This is very relaxed and pared back; and with emphasis on casual living. This can b created using cool blues and fresh linens with rattan, paired with some unexpected glamour, this creates a visual contrast. A great way to achieve this is by choosing a stand-alone feature piece such as the Holmes Aluminum Trunk, seen in the image below.


The Holmes Trunk is available in store now.
