Trends for 2016: Cherished Gold

Gold has been popular in interior design for quite some time now, and it’s set to stay around for 2016.  Dulux are so sure this metallic hue will be even more popular this year that they’ve name ‘Cherished Gold’ as their colour of the year for 2016.

How to use this colour in your home

This colour has been developed by Dulux to be used with colours we may not usually associate with Gold, such as Mauve, Mint and Pastel Blue tones.  These combinations create a fresh and vibrant look with a touch of elegance.

Gold is a great way to add a touch of luxe into your home, and can be used in both traditional and contemporary schemes.  Take a look below at some of the best Gold accessories we’ve found…

New Year’s Resolution

Christmas holidays and the New Year are a great time to look back at the past, and more importantly, look forward to the year ahead. It’s a time to reflect on the changes you want to make and find the motivation to follow through.

With the expense of Christmas behind you what better time to start thinking of ways to save money… You may think giving your home a new look at this time of year is out of question,  but by doing some careful planning and reusing your furniture where possible you can breathe new life into your house without breaking the bank.

Bring a Touch of Autumn Drama into Your Home

The changing of the seasons is the perfect time to give your home a brand new look ready for long cosy nights. When thinking of autumn we naturally think of the burnt orange and rich red tones of the foliage, but if you’re not a fan of these colours don’t despair – there are many other ways to add richness to your home.

Beautiful Botanicals

This trend is usually associated with the summer months, however by pairing the vivid green of the plants and scatter cushions with the moody peacock blue wall the look becomes much more inviting in Autumn. The gold on the coffee table and ornaments also make this look feel much more luxurious.

Combing Colours

This look is all about mixing colours. The maroon velvet sofa looks even more sumptuous when placed against the deep navy blue walls.  Lighting and pattern (such as the Ikat scatter cushion) helps prevent this colour scheme from being to overbearing.

Indulgent Velvet

Velvet is used a lot in this look to add drama and texture and is even used in places you wouldn’t normally expect it such as the mirror (which is barely noticeable against the inky walls).  The metallic touches on the chair and plant pot help add a little relief against the dark colours of the furniture and walls.

If you want to change the look of your home, a great place to start is your furniture.  By re-covering your sofa, chair or suite in a dramatic colour your furniture can be become the centrepiece of your room.  An easier way to choose the perfect colour for your home is to look at fabric swatches and see how the different colours work in your space.  To speak to an expert Home Design Consultant about your options contact Plumbs today.

Reupholstery Transformations: From Drab to Fab!

This black chair had seen better days.  The fabric had become tatty and the seat cushion was beginning to sag and become uncomfortable to sit on. The shape of the chair was gorgeous though, and we knew it had the potential to be updated and live a whole new life.

Black Chair

What a transformation!  We gave this chair a brand new look with one of our favourite William Morris fabrics. The seat cushion has been replaced and the frame checked for necessary repairs.   The deep blue base colour of this fabric really complements the dark wood of the feet, and the floral design will now turn this chair into a focal point of any room.
