Carnival inspired Babylon is energetic and sensuous. This exotic trend will liven up your home with a saturated palette of rich reds and hot pinks paired with brightest green and blue.

Babylon bedding and cushions

Babylon promotes a warm, lively atmosphere throughout the home and garden. Textiles are ripe with print and texture inspired by global cultures, while a collection of eclectic accessories give the illusion of trinkets carefully collected in far away climes. With equal measures of nature and opulence, you will find deep coloured woods against gold baroque, dazzling jewels and vibrant parrot motifs, rich florals and ceramic Buddhas all coming together in equilibrium.

red and green glass bottles

This liberating trend can be layered together for a rich, vibrant look or used to accent a more neutral colour scheme with bursts of bright colour and tropical flavour.

Babylon accessories

To perfect a luxurious Babylon look, why not pick a few statement pieces; choose bright coloured glass, gold and jewelled pieces, some patterns and some simpler items. Go for variety – the more the better! Build a moodboard around these pieces, focusing on your favourite characteristics of each. Choose some colour and wallpaper swatches and get inspired by carnival: think bright, think bold, think busy! Carnival is a loud, happy celebration so indulge your senses and imagine the sights, sounds and smells as you pull together your look – close your eyes and you’ll almost feel the sun on your face!
