Guides Design Inspiration

This fresh new trend for Spring 2015 combines contemporary pieces of furniture with splashes of blue and strong geometric patterns. It suits a living room, or anywhere you would like to relax in style.

The furniture is sleekly designed, with elegant lines. Materials include natural woods, high gloss finishes and metallics. Cushions, footstools and rugs soften the scheme, adding the all important comfort factor.

Blue is the next big thing. In colour psychology it’s associated with inducing a feeling of calm, giving any space a restful, relaxed feel. As life gets ever busier it’s no surprise that this soothing and meditative colour has such a strong appeal. Think rich, jewel-like shades or fresh, sea-washed blues.

Blue can be picked out in furniture or accessories – from an accent chair, rug or footstool to a clock or an eye-catching vase. We love the distinctive Candy Cane large vase with aqua striped patterning around three clear teardrop shapes.

A large piece of wall art will showcase the colour, uniting your scheme. The vibrant Cuban car picture is a stunning example.

Blues and geometrics blend beautifully with contemporary style. Choose sleekly designed modern pieces such as the versatile Solar white gloss round nest of tables with brushed stainless steel ‘loop’ legs.

Geometrics came to the fore in 2014, and continue to grow in popularity. The beautiful, often dramatic, patterns are inspired by abstract art, ethnic art and textiles or even ancient religious decoration.

The Mirage rug mesmerises with its white linear pattern on a charcoal background. Or make a statement with a funky asymmetric display unit such as the Bassett bookcase.

Geometrics are ideal for detailing. A neutral sofa such as the Copenhagen corner sofa is transformed dressed with complementary scatter and bolster cushions in a bold diamond design. Or go all out with pattern in a matching or accent footstool or chair. The gorgeous Copenhagen accent chair combines the colour teal with pattern – encapsulating the entire look in one lovely piece of furniture.

Are you feeling relaxed yet? Finish your scheme with chic accessories such as the stunning Ondatta mirror, a striking focal point for any room.

Life can be busy and stressful, so it’s important that your home is somewhere you can truly unwind. The fresh and sophisticated Cool Blue and Geometrics look will help you to create an oasis of calm and creativity that you can enjoy for years to come.
