2015 rolls on and so does the design world. Individuality, creativity and showing unique character of a project are becoming more essential trends. Both traditional and digital wallpaper have a huge role to play in this. Wallpaper introduces another dimension, tells a story and adds flavor to the scheme. With the invention of nonwoven wallpapers, it is easy to remove from the wall when they become outdated.
This theme is all about colour, the bolder the better. There is a lot of grey which sets a neutral backdrop and is easy to work with. The trick is to keep it deep as it sets a calming mood. Grey was often combined with mustard and navy. Talking about blue, there were oceans of variations of blue at the show: teal, green – blue, ultramarine, smoky navy, cobalt, sea blue, ceroleum. They are the hues that evoke feelings of reassurance and security. Blue will be the new trend colour in time, replacing the grey.
Salone del Mobile Milan was overwhelming!! So much to see, explore and digest. I am delighted to share the buzz of Salone del Mobile Milan fair with you. It was a pleasure to attend the show with Dulux brand marketing manager Judith Byrne from Dulux Ireland. A designer visiting a trade show is like a trip to wonderland.
