Inspired by interiors – Amara reports from Maison & Objet 2016
Maison & Objet 2016 show in Paris has just come to a close, and as ever, was bursting at the seams with the latest in home fashion from across the globe. Amara looks at the stand out trends to emerge and how these can be incorporated into your interior…
Rose tones were powering across the Maison stands this year. A fresh take on the perennially stylish pink hue, the easiest way to bring this colour home is to focus on key accessories coated in sherbet shades. For a modernised look try mixing with metallic hues or pairing with powder soft tones to add harmony to your interior.
Marble is the go-to material for 2016. Icy whites are beautifully complemented by the myriad of grey shades from charcoal to ash, mixed with onyx black. Try incorporating fresh botanicals and green foliage to give this look an urban edge.
Geometric shapes, patterns and textures are perfect for a modern minimalistic makeover. It’s important to ensure the balance between patterns is right; too many layers of clashing shapes will cause a lack of harmony in your interior. Try focusing on a centrepiece to feature a geometric print such as a wall or large rug, perfect for creating a style statement.
Into the Wild
Take a walk on the wild side this year and look to incorporate the wild trend into your home. This interior trend is all about textures; natural materials and nature inspired hues are key for recreating this look. Bring soft furnishings into the mix with a focus on contrasted elements; leather against wool or faux fur will add the perfect finishing touch.
