A new season is born…and it’s bold
The look for SS17 is Brave and Bold. Although it may not be for the faint hearted the collections launched in Paris, show unapologetic use of colour and texture.
Opulence is very much back and our interiors are revelling in it. Designers have gone to the East to find Rich Emerald Greens and Verdigris, this is not a season that will be ignored.
Brass is also making its mark, in a very big way, continuing the inspiration from the east.
Not that the west has been forgotten, our roman ancestors are also being honoured with the use of marble and intricate mosaics
The bold confidence of this season collections doesn’t stop with colours it also includes huge abstract designs. These can be found on wallpapers fabrics, parquet flooring and ceramics.
Statement floors are also making their mark this season. Dark smoked woods providing a perfect accompaniment to the emerald greens.
And of course you can’t have opulence without velvet, huge flowing drapes, as equally soft in touch as they are rich in colour.
Furniture must not to be left out, bold colour in both satin and lacquer finishes. Whilst upholstered furniture appears in a joyful celebration of colour, emerald green, deep gold, dusky rose there is the add dimension of quilting. A trend we are going to see come through more and more in 2017.
The mix of natural woods, deep jewel coloured furniture, beautiful metal detailing, coloured glass and Eglomise mirrors, firmly confirms this the season of colour pattern and texture.
