How to Use S/S2015 Design Trends in Product … Get Inspired!

Today I Love… Bohemian Brights

The summer may be nearly over for us here in Europe but we are still inspired by this vibrant colour palette moving us towards Spring/Summer 2015. This fusion of digital and handcrafted elements creates a tribal, cultural aesthetic, with basket weaved, woven, tufted, fringed and beaded features.

These colours evoke creativity, passion and personalisation with the turquoise blue, vivid red and vibrant yellow used as accent colours though-out product and materials.

And of course we don’t just want to see this look inside… why not take it outdoors as well. This is a perfect setting for summer outdoor dining, the bohemian brights create a relaxing yet vibrant party atmosphere where traditionalism takes on a new form in culture inspired colours, shapes and surface designs.
