Autumn/Winter 2021-22 Trend colour& interior concept book. Keeping pace in this fast-paced digital world influences all four home and interior themes. Natural and minimal influences continue to underpin design trends this season, as householders try to create a sense of calm at home to balance out increasingly chaotic lives. Cool, simplified interiors are referenced for Summer, while a more rustic, homely feel is explored for Spring. There’s still space for vibrant energy however, as we look for unusual and off-beat inspiration to counteract the passive, soulless consumption of visuals on platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram. We look to heritage and tradition to ground us and help make sense of this fast-paced digital world.
Each theme is illustrated by clear product direction pages containing original imagery, sourced from travels to international trade shows, galleries, craft fairs and graduate events.
Eight Pantone cotton swatches are provided per theme to allow for accurate colour matching. In addition actual fabric and wallpaper swatches illustrate the most forward-thinking designs and materials created by up-coming manufacturers.
More than 300 original images (protected by copyright) are available on USB in JPG format. These can be used to create your own mood boards.
