If you’re looking for a change from the loud and bright colour trends floating around right now, why not consider pastels? Pastels can add a sense of serenity and relaxation to any room.  Explore light greens, dove greys and creamy blues, all of which work flawlessly when mixed together.

Layer soft rose pink with grey, choose a classic sofa as the room’s centrepiece, then introduce pattern with decorative cushions and a rug. Contrast the soft colours with a statement floor lamp and coffee table. For more living room ideas visit

Retro orange

In an unsurprising addition, considering this year’s 1970s fashion trend is the colour orange.

There are several looks you can consider when implementing retro orange – you could roll with a more laid back vibe, introducing orange cushions or curtains into a traditional room, or go with a more drastic approach, blending orange and retro furniture with modern technology and styles.

Marble patterns

Although marble is already popular amongst people’s bathroom tiles and kitchen countertops, marble patterns are beginning to become a trend elsewhere, particularly on walls thanks to marble-effect wallpaper.

The wallpaper blends the marbled stone effect with metallic embellishment in gold hues, creating a beautiful, handmade look.

Thanks in part to the recent trend in global influence, rattan furniture pieces have become must-own products. Through a mix of older, far east design and newer, Scandi traits, rattan pieces now come in various colours and styles, suited for any kind of room.
