Easy, contemporary living and understated simplicity are central to this trend. Shades of ochre and teal inject a modern feel to the soft greys, muted neutrals and darker tones in the relaxed colour palette. Clean lines are softened with rounded edges and natural materials are weathered and frayed.  Subtle Scandinavian influences are revealed in the simply-shaped, retro-inspired furniture in light woods and coloured matt finishes, while cushions, curtains, rugs and bedding feature circle motifs, leaf patterns and geometric prints. Add a few carefully chosen details to this fresh, comfortable look with accessories in simple shapes, coloured glass and chunky textures.
