Experimental and environmentally aware, this crafted story is all about using the materials around us to create exciting interiors with an enticingly rustic feel.

Dusky pinks

In this stunning dining room, a cool marble dining table takes centre stage, while a dusky pink and grey palette brings subtle warmth. Painterly florals teamed with ink-wash velvet curtains reflect the winter thaw and the warming notes of spring. Bare brickwork, plastic dining chairs and a tufted, handwoven rug lend an authentic feel, adding textural interest and acting as foils for the luxe textiles.

Warm amber

For a bolder look that’s still warm and inviting, introduce shades of soft amber into your palette. Natural jute rugs, wicker belly baskets and macramé dreamcatchers celebrate all things artisan, while animal skin throws lend an almost primitive, tribal feel.

Ocean greens

This look combines spritzing ocean greens with soft pastels for a calm and comforting feel. Textiles evoke the swirling mist of a mountain morning, while egg-speckled ceramics and untreated wooden surfaces invite you to give in to your nesting instincts. Here an industrial trolley is re-imagined as a stylish seating bench, softened by cosy cushions in complementary hues. At the window, the softly blurred lines of our Anouk Dusk Roman blinds finish the relaxed and rustic scene.       

Rare qualities

This look is all about taking raw ingredients and mixing them together to create innovative and exciting interiors. The juxtaposition of natural, worn-down and painted wood tones with the rigid plastic panelling transforms this dining room into a futuristic and visionary space. Tropical greenery breathes life into the room, while a wave header style allows the curtains to drape in soft, rippling folds, enhancing the natural, laid-back feel.
