Be Inspired for The Coming Year
Our team recently went down to London to see the incredible interiors and hospitality exhibition – Sleep and Eat. This year the show has been moved to Olympia to give more space to all of the displaying companies. Sleep and Eat offers abundance of inspiration in terms of interior design, specifically bedrooms and bathrooms.
We brought together a short list of the trends that are making a big impact in the world of interiors for the coming year. Read our inspiration guide to bring a touch of current trends to your home.
Nature is Taking Over
The trend for inviting nature back home is gathering momentum. Many stands featured natural stone, wood and plants creating environmentally-centred displays that worked really well. You can quickly adapt that trend in your home. If you don’t already have plants, buy a good looking fern, cactus or a Swiss cheese plant, they are easy to care for and can make an impact in your interiors. If you are looking for something more advanced turn to orchids, addendum or other bonsai trees, they can look really mesmerizing if taken care of properly.
If you are looking for a bigger change you can decide to change your wall paper and select one with a natural feel to it. Harlequin offers a range of silk and cotton wallpapers which look brilliant matched with environmentally-centred interiors. To be current, choose deep navy blue or moss green. Both of those colours seem to be really growing in the world of interior design.
Navy Blue and Green on the Rise
Sleep and Eat event offered a great array of colour inspirations. One of the most pronounced was navy blue. It seemed as if, all the stands have pre-arranged to use it in so many ways. Wall papers, curtains, bars, soft furnishings, carpets and even: dyed wood. The presence of navy blue has made a long-lasting impact on our team.
Deep green was more of a complimenting colour. It has been featured in many bathrooms and in more rustic settings. Many designers selected it to compliment crisp bathroom porcelain or used it with conjunction with other colours like mustard, brown or berry red.
You could look at introducing blue or Teal to your living room or home in a form of blanket, throw or maybe a velvet lamp shade – it can add a touch of the current trend while not overwhelming your home. If you are looking for something more adventurous you can always consider changing your wall papers or renovating your bathroom and introducing some green or blue elements.

Marble Reaches its High
Alongside many other beautiful ideas and designs our team saw a lot of our favourite bathroom surface – marble. It was used in many different room settings including living rooms, bedrooms and offices. Our team was amazed how it expanded beyond the classic kitchen and bathroom setting, and gained a new wave of popularity. As well as using the finish in your bathroom, you could also look to introduce smaller marble elements like coasters, lamps and tables.
If you are looking to dive right into it we offer a full bathroom redesign service using a range of marble finishes from Versital. You can choose from over 50 different marble finishes to find the one that suits your house most. If you are interested in introducing a marble panel in other rooms like bedrooms or lounges – give us a call to discuss your possibilities.
Sleep and Eat Exhibition offers a great opportunity to discover new trends and inspirations. It is however important to know that trends fade, while class maintains. In that in mind remember to select pieces that suit your home and the type of interiors that work for you.
