INTERIOR

CHROMA: A GRAPHIC VIEW

We have been visually devouring post-modern references over the past few years, and the popularity of these movements is ever increasing.  As we move through inspirations from Memphis to Bauhaus and beyond, these references are seeping into our creative minds and from this emerges a style that is distinctly modern and yet very familiar.  

 

 The style is highly chromatic and filled with bold schemes in saturated colour. Peach, melon, yellow, teal and blue form graphic elements dominating the forms that make up interiors. From block colour, shapely furniture and melting objects that seem to have emerged from a Dali-esque artwork to graphic outlines and line-work that create illusions reminiscent of work by Escher – your interior will begin to evolve beyond the mid-century post-modern style and into a vivid chromatic retreat.

A strikingly chromatic palette in clean and bold colours, saturated hues work alongside softer, greyed-off shades in the Chroma colour collection.  Together black and white is an essential starting point, whilst more muted tertiary hues are paired with stronger colour to create intriguing combinations.

ENTWINE: A COLOURFUL WEAVE

Respectful appreciation for diversity is an important part of how we now live. More frequently than ever we are reminded of the need to strive for equality and to take a global view that extends beyond our backyard. We want to be connected with other cultures, be respectfully inspired by their traditions and unique creative talents.

We look for a connection – something that can create a dialogue between modernity and tradition or seemingly opposing cultures


This interior style is eclectic and combines many references to varying global cultures with modern pieces featuring weave and rich colour, inspired by landscapes from South America to the middle east. Rich colours such as red, burgundy, brown and oranges are brought together with the zest of bright yellow and blue to form unexpected combinations and diversify the look of a modern interior.

This eclectic range of colour displays richness and warmth in earthy red and botanical green with unexpected accents.  The Entwine palette is influenced by global cultures and landscapes creating a link between modernity and tradition.

SENTIENCE: A TACTILE REMEDY

Texture has become a remedy for our senses.

Move away from smooth, cold surfaces and surround yourself with warm colours, flesh tones and vegetal hues. Rediscover colours that are soothing and restorative; relaxing and tonal. Begin to fill your home with texture, tactility and undulating surfaces. Your choice of materials becomes very important – how do they feel? Smell? Does your eye find interest in the apparent movement of the material's surface?

Texture has become a remedy for our senses. Tactility is our relief from the pressure of the screen and the smooth unsympathetic surfaces we endure daily.

Raw aesthetics are combined with manmade materials that provide visual interest and tactile qualities under our fingertips.

Subtle pastels and soft naturals make up the Sentience palette.  New beiges with a hint of grey are versatile and will pair easily with the mellow hues of the range.

We love this peaceful calm palette direction and look forward to incorporating these tones into a project.
