AISLINN COFFEY on the beige proposition …
The beige proposition? The latest fashion and interiors trend is earthy, taupey, barely there neutrals. Camel, fleshy tones and fawn shades are back, and proving their worth as both background and starring role colours. From fleshy tones to warmer jute hues, it’s the go-to colour for the world’s top interior designers and is overtaking greys as the new neutral. Our opinion? This palette is anything but dull.
Room refreshers: Larsen’s latest fabric collection takes its inspiration from nature. Deliberately including natural imperfections, the subtle, elegant colours in earth and mineral tones will stand the test of time. www.larsenfabrics.com.
Tableware: Looking for tableware that’s inexpensive yet elegant? We like Zara’s new Home collection for its classic styling and modern shapes. Another plus? It’s delivered to your door. www.zarahome.com.
Arty blankets: A fun, abstract-print throw looks great layered over the arm of an occasional chair or sofa. Mirage jacquard-woven throw, €145, at Industry Design, Drury Street, Dublin 2.
Timeless collections: Looking for a sofa to swoon over? Hedgeroe’s Cheyne natural linen three-seater is a good investment, €2,525. Cushions (above) in contrasting textures and materials add interest; from €75. www.hedgeroe.com.
Invest in a new colour scheme: Dulux’s new Think palette is serene and grown-up, yet soft and warm: a mix of rich neutrals and touches of soft pink, intense burgundy. Its honey-toned Colour of the Year 2019 is called Spiced Honey, €29.99 for 2.5l, at Woodies.
Trend alert: It’s a new day for cane. Cane accessories add lightness and texture to any room. We love this basket, €39.99, at H&M Home; www.hm.com.
