After months of cold and darkness, the new year is a great time to breathe new life into your home. Make a fresh start on your style sprucing and transform your decor with heritage inspired furnishings.
Whilst there has been a trend towards neutral colours and minimalism in recent years, there is now a movement towards ‘maximalism’. Maximalism is about layering lots of furnishings, textures and patterns together, and not worrying about them matching or being in the same colour palette. It is also about beautifully displaying art and objects you love.
The Victorians were the ultimate maximalists - they loved to show off everything they possessed all at once and felt joy from having their favourite patterns around them.
If you want to incorporate a bit of maximalism, then seek out heritage inspired furnishings that are colourful and highly patterned. A couple of cushions or a new lampshade will make a bold style statement and brighten up any room.
A lot of heritage styles can be quite busy for modern taste, so consider focusing on a feature wall or star piece of furniture, and then picking out key colours for the accessories. The patterns can be different but should complement each other. We have produced several heritage influenced collections, which are based on styles from the past, but with a new twist.
