  1. Rattan

This 70s throwback has once again become fashionable but this time with some interesting contemporary twists.

  1. Pantone’s Colour of the year 2016

This year Pantone’s colour of the year was a two-tone colour. Pantone reported that Rose Quartz and Serenity reflect the consumers’ desire for calmer tones as they seek ‘mindfulness and wellbeing as an antidote to modern-day stresses’. This is also reflected in the return of the pastel trend which can be easily introduced through wallpaper, upholstery and accessories. To create a more soothing living area, simply replaces bold pop colours with pastel colours and change your statement wall to a more tranquil colour.

  1. Formal Dining Rooms

Houzz reports that families are becoming less and less likely to convert their dining rooms into bash offices or storage areas, as spending quality family time over dinner is coming back into fashion! Switch off your TV and set an hour for family dinner in a comfortable and sleek dining room. Large tables, plush dining chairs and handy yet beautiful accessories will enrich dining experiences with your loved ones.
