Crushing on Blue

We have a big crush on rich blues at the moment. It works on anything from sofas, curtains to walls and furniture. Take a look at these gorgeous images and be inspired

Dark ceilings

To paint the ceiling black is truly a brave move! It is probably something that we would never attempt but in this space with its tall ceilings it actually kind of works! What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Beetle chair

When we first saw this velvet chair at a trade show a while back it was simply love at first sight! The Gubi Beetle chair has a truly timeless design and comes in a few different versions, all equally stunning. The Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi have take inspiration from nature when designing the beetle chairs "the design of the chair reinterprets the characteristic elements of a beetle's makeup including shape, shells, sutures, rigid outside and soft inside".

Our personal favourite is the Beetle dining chair in velvet with brass legs. What's yours?

Shades of Grey

This moody flat has a very considered colour palette featuring only shades of grey, black and white. This home is on the smaller side at 38 sqm but but you can't tell! They have managed to create a sense of space even though they've purposefully stayed away from lighter hues. It goes to show that you can work with muted darker palette even in small spaces.

This Scandi flat is the opposite to the typical all white interior style that we're so used to see. Darker muted palettes has become a lot more popular during 2016. Just take a look at this flat which features black walls!

Moody Green

We can't get enough of these dark green walls! They create a beautiful contrast with the white double doors, fireplace and cornices. We've seen a lot more Scandinavian homes daring to go dark lately, it's a change from the 'all white everything' we've so long associated with Scandi interiors.

Plant Life

Green indoor plants is a massive trend in the interior world at the moment. Indoor palm trees and Fiddle leaf fig trees are some of our faves, and with this trend more is more!

For more plant inspiration take a look at this post on plants from a few months ago.
