Refresh your home for the NEW SEASON with earthy colours, new furniture and affordable updates …
Biophilic design is an innovative way of ensuring the spaces where we live and work reflect nature, so that we benefit from its calming, balancing and restorative effects. This season, we are going native: referencing the grounding earth tones and healthy greens of Ireland’s landscapes and indigenous plants in walls and furniture to create a harmonious, restful atmosphere in a home. Using natural textures on floors and furniture contributes to this sense of the natural and organic – choose leather, seagrass, wool and tweed alongside mossy greens and browns.
This season, animal prints padded stealthily into the key designer fashion collections. Now, prepare to see the trend slink off the runway and into your living room.
Large-scale unique or limited edition photographical prints are a huge trend – more affordable than paintings. The Jam Art Factory in Dublin will deliver prints of photographs by international photographers to your door, framed or unframed. www.jamartprints.com.
An easy way to weave colour into your home is via accessories that can be easily moved around to conjure a change of scene. Burnt orange is both energising and warming. Elemental textures like geode and agate add interest.
Malachite has been a mainstay in interior decorating since the 17th century but has had a resurgence in the last few years. The collectible stone is pricey, but we spotted a few ‘inspired’ pieces that won’t break the bank: malachite-on-malachite makes a real statement.
