Yearning for sunnier climates? Try some armchair globetrotting with the new look that's storming the interiors world now
Those of you who are fans of tasteful greys and muted colours should look away now. We've been seeing fresh lively patterns, bright colours and worldy accessories coming to the fore in a new look that’s being dubbed ‘modern global', ‘traveller’ or ‘global’ style. Here are a few ways to get the look...
Think of a calm space with soft pink tones and earthy greens or go all out with sultry patterns, tropical greenery and hot good looks. We love the Eastern vibes at Marks & Spencer which incorporate atmospheric lanterns, vibrant bedding and vintage prints.
Get the look: (Left) Jaipur double bedding in Paisley, £49.50; Rug, £59; Bedstead, £399. (Right) Selection of lanterns and tealights are from £9.50 to £59.
'The new tribal furniture trend is all about bright colours, wickerwork, dark woods and rough surfaces,' says Nathalie Davis, director of Cuckooland. 'Inspired by the ever-thriving trend for bringing the outside in, the tribal look goes a step further, bringing all corners of the world together in celebration of a simpler, more colourful way of life. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, materials and textures.'
Get the look: (Left) Bathroom range is Butterfly Home by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams. Prices from £10 for a soap dish. (Right) Kraton side table in solid teak wood £165; Kubu rattan chair £229; 2 door Locker wardrobe in Petrol Blue, £325; Scarflower stools in embossed Copper finish, £245, all Cuckooland.
'The Modern Global trend is inspired by tribal folk and developed with a modern stylish edge,' says Jane Rockett of Rockett St George, a brand that has used travel as their main source of style inspiration this season. 'Faux cactus and succulent plants explore the desert vibe, along with ethnic artefact style ornaments such as dreamcatchers, hand-painted tiles and bottles,' she says.
