Keeping your interiors fresh, bright and inspired can be tricky. It is easy to fall into neutral colour scheme living, not that there is anything wrong with that, Scandi living is after all the rage but colour is not to be overlooked. When used correctly different colours can really make a room, bring the atmosphere you want and not to mention that touch of style.
Style being the operative word. British interiors specialist Multiyork and highstreet retailer Monsoon have joined forces for their third inspired collaboration for 2017. The collection is heavily focused on pattern, so much so Monsoon Director Kate Tansely says ‘pattern is truly at the heart of this beautiful 2017 collection. The versatility of these prints means they will look equally stylish as a cushion or as a statement-accent armchair’. Boy she is spot on in this and it is exactly this that I love so much about the collection. The patterns are effortlessly stylish and perfect for adding vibrancy and elegance in all the right places. The selection of pattern and colour is vast and you will find something to suit every palette .
The beautiful and colourful patterns are teamed with Multiyork’s sofa’s, cushions, dining chairs and footstools. I was kindly gifted a beautiful pink dotty cushion. The fabric is a fantastic quality and the cushion itself is well padded and very supportive, not to mention gorgeous. I love it so much I am investing in a few more to add to my bedspread, after all Mr Tammy loves having to take a bajillion cushions off of the bed before getting into it…
Anyway, the items available lend themselves perfectly to adding bright and vibrant aspects to your rooms. They range form bold pinks to stark blues, from floral motifs to the ever fashionable geometric prints. Go bold or go home people. The bold patterns encapsulate daring style and add a timeless class to your interiors. They would look absolutely stunning against single colour walls and are the perfect way to use colour, pattern and style.
I used to shy away from the statement pieces but I think these are absolutely gorgeous. A patterned sofa complimented by additional patterned cushions is not necessarily something I would have been brave enough to try in the past but I am in love with it and think it would create a fabulous look to your living room without being over the top. See.
If the bolder bright patterns and colours aren’t your thing then there are more subtle neutral designs utilising pastel colours and clean crips patterns, keeping them contemporary, the dotty range is a perfect example of this. The dotty patterns allow for a mis match of colours to be used harmoniously to suit all spaces yet still allow for an element of continuity in pattern and design. These colours and patterns would work beautifully on a range ofscatter cushions, dining chairs or feature chairs.
This collection has truly inspired me and my approach to interiors. It has taught me to not be afraid of statement pieces, colours and daring patterns. To mix colours and patterns as the result is truly gorgeous. Yes I love chic, minimal scandi living but thanks to this collection I have my sights set on a huge dining table with bright and colourful patterned chairs in our new kitchen, diner, living extension.
So what do you think? Do you go bold or go home? or are you more of the neutral pastel palette? You can shop the gorgeous range of fabrics at Multiyork’s Monsoon fabric collection.
