20 Sep Decorex 2016 – Trends for Georgian interior design
I’m just back from a fabulous day at our annual visit to Decorex, the interior design exhibition at Syon Park. So, I thought I’d share with you ideas we found that are the most exciting and appropriate trends in Georgian interior design. Interestingly, the main trends that caught my eye related to bathrooms.
Trend no.1 The revival of the Avocado Bathroom Suite – well not quite! But Water Monopoly have done for coloured sanitaryware what Angela Ahrendts did for Burberry. Using fresh colours and pairing with the right combinations within a scheme this really does work. As seen here with the pale blue sanitaryware paired with a geometric pink wallpaper and crisp white mirrors and lights. This could also work fantastically with a contemporary chinoise paper.
Trend no.2 Bronze baths – At Latham interiors we have for some time now become big fans of bronze. Lighting, switches and sockets and brassware (taps etc) in bathrooms have often been in bronze in our schemes. Today we spotted two fabulous bronze baths that would make a real statement whist being smart and deliver an updated yet timeless style.
Chadder & Co’s almost looks like its made out of the great British Penny (now there’s an idea).
The second was from a French supplier we have come across for the first time, Volevatch, who work with local artisans and have the most amazing range of brassware in bronze too. Like the flush handle on a wall plate below.
Trend no. 3 Decorative basins – We have long been a fan of the company Kohler but now we have discovered the London Basin Company. We always like to support local companies wherever we can so finding a British brand with such classic yet stunning designs is really very exciting.
So, moving on from Bathrooms here’s what else I thought you might be interested in;
Trend no.4 Taxidermy – not to everyone’s tastes the growth in ethical taxidermy has fuelled much interest. These vibrant butterflies,from Design & Nature, preserved for eternity make a delightful and eye-catching accent in any classic scheme. The peacocks could look stunning in a large Georgian interior hallway, corridor or library.
Trend No.5 faded rugs – The colourful rugs below, from Yo Unique, whilst incorporating vibrant colours are antique rugs that have been washed and washed to fade the original pattern and washed over with a colour wash.
This stunning rug is the latest from Riviere. Unlike their other collections this is weaved in India and has 150 knots per inch.
And the new collection from Bazaar Velvet was delectable. All able to be customised by size, colour and to a degree by composition to meet with a budget.
There was so much more to see that we are able to incorporate into Georgian interior design projects. I hope this hand selected update has inspired your choices for your home interior design. Please do get in touch if Latham interiors can assist in any way.
