Layer dark textiles with weathered textures and let the shade wash over you in waves.
Pair printed and moiré velvets for a sumptuous look. Embossed details add a tactile edge.
Lift an all-navy scheme with metallic highlights. Copper and blue make a winning combination…
Create a hazy Mediterranean feel with organic shapes and lashings of white.
Contrast spots and stripes on modern upholstery. Keep the tones similar for a subtle effect.
BUST A MOVE

Let the marine tones of a bespoke stair runner cascade down to form a serene pool on the floor.
Treat your walls to a triple dose of blue – ranging from lush, oversized palms to luxe crocodile-style prints.
Put the finishing touch to an elegant scheme with a plush Jacquard velvet in rich hues of green and navy.
