A major trend in interiors for Autumn 2017 is influenced by the urban landscape. Geometric designs dominate this trend with solid shapes broken up by texture and use of linear detail. Tones taken from the exterior surroundings including concrete, pewter, muted gold, turmeric and cherry red complete the look. Style Studio’s New York Skyline roller blind is perfect for creating a cosmopolitan vibe.

Nature surrounds us in our everyday life, with refreshing and revitalising colours symbolic of new beginnings, growth and life. We’ve put together our top tips on how to bring elements from the outdoors, indoors.

Potted plants

The easiest method of including nature in home décor is with potted plants and fresh flowers. These can be easily dotted around different areas of the home. Or why not introduce hanging baskets to plain walls? This is a great alternative to shelved or floor plants, and can be easily changed or refreshed when you choose.
