It’s time to get back to nature with our hottest new trend for Spring/Summer ’17. As the world around us becomes ever more stressful, we look for sanctuary in our homes as an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Our Decelerate collection is all about simplifying the way we live and eliminating the unnecessary from our lives. Mixing rustic, natural materials with calm, tranquil animals, this range will help to create that little slice of serenity in your home. It’s easy to get the look, we’ll show you how.
There’s no bold or overpowering shades in this trend. Choose colours that will complement each other in subtle hues such as light green, taupe and soft pink. Our English Sage paint is perfect for a feature wall in your living room. To allow this colour to really come alive, choose a lighter colour for your remaining walls. Oatmeal or Crushed Almond are perfect candidates to continue the soft and soothing theme. Alternatively, opt for nature-inspired wallpaper such as this gorgeous Sanctuary Green design or this White Washed Wood Effect paper*. Both will evoke feelings of being outdoors and capture the essence of this collection perfectly.
Give your living room a lift
It’s so easy to introduce the calming influences of this trend into your living space, without a complete re-design. Watercolour prints are synonymous with this collection and a quick update to your sofa is all that’s needed to continue the nature-inspired theme. You can get the look with this stunning sleeping fox cushion. The design was created by our in-house team so you won’t find it anywhere else. Add in this watercolour floral cushion and finish with a cosy faux fur throw to instantly update your sofa. Balance with knitted cushions in plain colours that’ll match your walls and pull the look together. These taupe and duck egg versions will do the job perfectly.
Bring the outside in
Staying true to the nature theme, no mantelpiece is complete without a burst of fresh florals. Our ceramic jug is embossed with the words ‘always find time for those you love’ and will display your blooms beautifully. We think freshly picked sweet peas or a brightly coloured bunch of tulips will look just perfect. If fresh flowers aren’t your thing, our artificial hydrangea in a bottle will provide a great alternative.
A sleep sanctuary
The Decelerate trend’s relaxed vibe makes it perfectly suited to the bedroom. The bed is often the focal point in this room, so choosing the right bedding is key. Continue the watercolour influences you’ve captured downstairs with this stunning hearts duvet set. Combine with subtle lighting and a few well-placed accessories to add the finishing touches. We love these wicker heart string lights; perfect for draping across your headboard. And our gorgeous wooden memory box will look great on your bedside table.
