Bold and Spirited
If your feeling adventurous this January, then why not create a BOLD and SPIRITED interior design that brings together cool and chic bohemian style with bright and striking colour schemes that are sure to create visual detail in your home interior. This trend features a plethora of tribal and Mexican inspired prints and patterns and traditional furniture that can be mixed and matched within a single interior space. This clash of patterns is not for the faint hearted but is sure to create an uplifting ambiance within your chosen room.
Pattern, pattern and more pattern! Don’t shy away from print when opting for this interior look; the more the merrier! Channel our inner hippie and select a bold mandala or paisley print wallpaper in crisp white and primary colours or opt for jewelled tones such as emerald, fuchsia and sapphire blue that are sure to create a striking focal point within your room. Select some tribal patterned bedding, cushions, throws and rugs for layer upon layer of colour and pattern. Opt for tribal patterned cushions featuring hand embroidered designs, tassels and fringing and partner with co-ordinating throws that will look great on a sofa or sleeping area. When choosing rugs opt for Persian or Mexican style patterns with heavy tasselled edging that can be used to create a focal point on your floor or alternatively can be hung from a wall as a tapestry for a great alternative to traditional wall art or wallpaper
Choose a mix and match of furniture to create character and visual detail within your chosen room. A selection or vintage furniture items in natural wood, or painted designs will look great in any room of the home and can be partnered with ethnic and cultural designs such as Spanish and Mexican tables and dressers that will create global character within your home. Opt for a large mosaic coffee table for a hint of Spanish colour and pattern or a larger filigree carved walnut dresser that can be used to house an array of ornaments and accessories. A selection of dream catchers or Mexican carved masks will make a great feature on a main feature wall as well as items such as tambourines, folk drums and maps. Mexican style ornaments featuring the day of the dead skulls will create a bright and colourful feature that can be displayed on a sideboard, table or windowsill area and can be teamed with a selection of bold and colourful ceiling lights, lamps or lanterns within your chosen room. You could also opt for traditional vintage wall sconces and carved wooden or mosaic mirrors that will take pride of place within your home.
