So let’s get started!

A touch of colour for your living room

Colours have the magical property of enlarging, shrinking, giving light or privacy to a space. For that reason, within the current trends we find that mixing the minimalist Nordic Style with punctual touches of colour can create the right feel.

In this case, and speaking of upholstery, the sofa can become that point of attention, which in quieter shades such as gray, white and black for the rest of the decoration, gives joy and harmony to the space and provides a focused look and style.

It is a resource widely used in decoration at present, since it is simple to implement with very attractive results. Colours such as ocher, green, turquoise or bubble gum pink are currently the most “IN” in interior design. Which one do you prefer?

Flowers and vegetation to sweeten your home

So we’ve spoken about the Nordic Style, now we move on to Shabby Chic, another of the coolest styles of the moment.

For this type of decoration, it is best to opt for the ocher tones combined with oranges, earth, garnets or onions that give a feeling of warmth in this cold season.

If you are looking for a more feminine look, use country prints, where you can find a lot of options: from mini flowers and pastoral scenes, to more abstract floral prints that inspire us so much.

If on the contrary, you are looking for a more sober and masculine touch, combine stripes with plain colours in the same pallet range... The result is spectacular!

Take your sofa back to the 50’s

The Mid-Century Style is another of those that has triumphed throughout 2016 and that enters strongly into the new year. Getting this effect on your sofa is very simple: just look for textured fabrics, thick wool, velvets and fabrics with presence. Look for rather neutral or dark tones with a small drawing of Jaquard or Burlap (very fashionable in the 50’s), and if you can, leave the legs of the sofa in sight or change them for wooden ones.

You can also look for combinations with the rest of the upholstered furniture. For example, reupholster the sofa and a couple of chairs, or just an armchair to give that chic touch that your home deserves. With this, you will achieve a sophisticated and masculine space.

Industrial style in the Caribbean

A style that undoubtedly triumphed in 2016, and that for now still remains, especially when we talk about decorating premises using the Industrial Style with Caribbean touches. Building materials such as brick and iron beams are important in these large spaces, which become sophisticated through thoughtful furniture made of pallets and details that complement the space in an almost magical way, and where the sofa also plays an important role, combining its neutral and dark colours with accessories of daring prints.
