If sumptuous velvet furniture, jewel tones and eye-catching metallics appeal to your sense of style, then why not dive into a palette of deep blues, serene teals with Midnight Tropics, our new trend for AW18?
Wonderfully atmospheric, this look is all about the layering of tactile materials fused with the grandeur of metallic accents and bold motifs, for a luxurious take on maximalism.
Discover a few key ways to recreate this look in your own home.
Luxe Blue Hues
Start by create a bold backdrop for this maximalist trend. Opting for a palette of blue hues allows you to experiment with an entire spectrum of colour, so look to introduce those deep, dark tones for a sense of intrigue whilst allowing the lighter tones to add a more contemporary edge to the space.
For a living room that oozes glamour, look for stand-out pieces in luxurious fabrics. Beautifully upholstered in a soft teal velvet, the Azalea Corner Sofa has a contemporary twist thanks to its vibrant hue and plump button detailing – a statement piece that we think will look great in both traditional and modern settings.
Injecting a tropical twist to the tonal hues, this look embraces a botanical theme of oversized greenery, playful pineapple motifs and large-scale exotic prints.
Go large with a statement palm-printed wallpaper or look for tropical art and textiles that will add a fresh and vibrant accent to your room. The Pineapple Sweet Picture offers a bright burst of colour to any home. Alternatively, style your seating with the Wild Flora Cushion, which features a dark background and botanical pattern to enhance this seductive theme.
Art Deco Drama
A sense of artistic flair runs throughout this bold trend, so don’t be afraid to go a shade braver when styling your space. Dark, dramatic furniture will add an extravagant Art Deco-inspired vibe to a room that works perfectly with Midnight Tropic’s moody colour palette.
Nothing beats bringing your family and friends together for an evening of delicious food and drink, so invest in the Cannelle Dining Table to accommodate a large group for the occasion. The chic black veneer texture is perfectly highlighted by its brushed gold capped legs, making it a sophisticated and stylish dinner party centrepiece.
Statement Patterns & Shapes
Midnight Tropics also boasts a strong geometric script throughout, demonstrating how contrasting patterns can work in harmony together. From graphic rugs to statement mirrors and feature lighting, these luxe elements only enhance the aspirational nature of this seductive trend.
If a complete blue makeover is a little too much and you prefer colour on a smaller scale, consider the Arris Rug which features a stunning Art Deco-inspired geometric pattern in shades of teal and gold.
For the perfect finishing touch, add statement occasional pieces such as Gatsby-inspired tables, metallic accessories and the ultimate in extravagance, the sought-after Kensington bar trolley. Stack it with vintage-inspired cocktail shakers and martini glasses for the ultimate party piece.
Complete the Midnight Tropics look with the Scalloped Mirror, which features a gold frame that adds depth and style to any colour scheme. Hang in the hallway or living room to create a striking focal point.
