Paint effects – running ink, tie-dye, marbled paper, watercolours, splattered velvet, muted and secondary palettes.
Reclaimed wood – raw painted trunks and stumps, burnished tiles, edges and cracks finished with resin, reclaimed flooring, gilded wall panels.
Green – in every shade, strong botanical influences, tropical, forest and desert tones, teals, petrol, sage, chartreuse, set off with golds, terracotta and burgundy.
Folded paper effects – origami fixtures, folded felt acoustic panels, mirrored geometric surfaces, scored and folded metal lighting, tromp l’oeil.
Blue – everything from deep black indigo, to electric cobalt shades, pale washed denim and pales powder blue.
Textile effects – tapestry, lace, knitting, crochet, woven, wall hangings, printed tiles, rugs, window films.
