Trend edit: Art imitating spice


After a new scheme?  Look no further than the spice rack for inspiration on this latest trend!

We’ve noticed that in contrast to the luxurious and sumptuous deco look that’s still going strong, it’s starkly juxtaposed by the revival of relaxed  70’s bohemia manufactured by high end and high street designers alike.  The look which incorporates all that’s natural – hanging plants, palms, animal hides, tribal patterns, woven baskets, soft fabrics, wood and leather – in an array of spicy colours, is trending right across home and clothing stores in equal measure.

Paint companies have followed suit, producing an array of warmer, spicy hues. Dulux have brought out their colour of the year [Spiced Honey] pictured above, alongside a new range of complimentary colours which combine a 70’s vibe with a paler modern hue, to create soft and spicy colour pallettes. Even Farrow and Ball have got on board with ‘Jitney’ which is a earthy colour that sits somewhere between the more traditional Oxford Stone and greyer Elephant’s Breath. Though muted and uplifting, it’s made to remind us of “lazy days by the sea – hence sharing its name with the bus that whisks New Yorkers out of the hot city to the similarly coloured sandy beaches of the Hamptons.” We’ve definitely ‘fallen’ for this autumnal colour range and look forward to incorporating them into forthcoming projects.
