-Words by Hayley Perkins of Jewels Canley Interiors, Penarth
Hayley Perkins, of Jewels Canley Interiors, talks to Penarth View about the up and coming interior trends for 2020. From the best colours to maximise your space, to the on-trend fabrics to use around your home.
Top Pantone colours to get excited about;
Sweet lavender: A soft subtle lilac meets grey mix, which is a colour I would class as a romantic tone that would work well in bedrooms or a hallway.
Warm and inviting which gives a lovely glow.
Nugget gold: In the same family as ochre but darkened down to produce an elegant colour that would partner beautifully with russet or black.
Ideal for making a north-facing room feel cosy & snug.
French blue: Bold, sexy and a bit Greek! Yes I’m still talking about paint.
It may be classed as French, but to me, it is the classic blue you see if you’ve been to visit Santorini. Having the freshness of the white and blue gives a clean crisp appearance that will always remind you of a holiday.
Kitchens aren’t for cooking anymore; my mother will tell you that:
With all the white goods being hidden, even down to the extractor fan being flush with the hob. It is all about the art of concealing, showing off a streamlined clean finish with push catch doors, so no handles required. So what if no one can find the bin when they call over!
Integrated living and kitchen spaces:
Fantastic for cooking and socialising and especially ideal for young families when keeping an eye on the kids.
Not so great if you need to take a breather when the in-laws are over, but design-wise, the open plan style of living will always add to the selling price of a property.
You may have seen that there are quite a few variations of glass doors available; these are absolutely fantastic for spaces that are a little short on natural light.
Glass dividing doors are a great way to incorporate another room within a room. We have recently added a study area within a long living/entertaining area, as it seemed to have a void that could get away with being used for more than just occasional chairs.
Always think of how much space you are actually going to use when living in a room, as most of the time you will find that you can get away with including additional living/working spaces.
Back to nature;
We are seeing lots of heavy boucle and linen materials gracing our Elle Décor magazine front covers; this is going to be a huge staple look for sofas and heavy chairs.
Curtains and blinds are going to be less fussy with pattern and instead will be concentrating on texture and the natural beauty of the fabrics.
I’m not talking about your brother or sister’s hand me down jeans. Fabric companies are getting all sustainable with their materials, by using old plastic bottles to make attractive weaves and hard-wearing colourful weaves. Not only is re-upholstery a good way to recycle and re-use your older much-loved furniture but you are also doing your bit for the environment.
Hayley and Julie are always on hand to help bring your interior space to life, from showing you a vision to get the most out of your space or working with you to make your dream home. You can find them on social media @Jewelscanley and in Penarth town centre.
