Which of This Year's Leading Trends is Right For You?


Creating an interior that makes you feel good is a very personal thing – after all, your home is an extension of who you are – and because the design of your home can have such huge influence on your mood and outlook on life, it’s important to get it right.

Of course, what suits one person may not be right for another, so how do you create a design when there’s so much choice? Where on Earth do you begin?

How do I decide which is the right trend for me?

For a start, why not think about the places and situations that make you the happiest? Do you like rural or urban environments best?

Perhaps your idea of a great day is visiting the seaside, where the colours of the sea, sky and sand are complemented by houses painted in pale creams and whites. Or maybe you just love the vibrant colours of a tropical greenhouse.  Are you most serene when your house is clutter-free, or does having lots of things around you give you comfort?

Considering these ‘happiness factors’ will help you decide which of the five key 2018 Pacific Lifestyle trends is the one for you.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be having a closer look into our 2018 macro trends, where you can find inspiration to make your interiors beautiful — without the expense of a professional designer and without spending hours and hours searching.

Kicking things off, here’s how to create a Scandi Earth-inspired interior. 

The Scandi Earth Trend

If you love the calm and space of the countryside, you might be drawn to our Scandi Earth trend.

A palette of natural colours, including jade green, pale blues and greys, mixed with the clean lines of Scandi style will create a calm, simple, yet cosy environment.

Scandi-inspired cabinets such as our two-drawer Stockholm or the two-door Copenhagen will add sleek storage space for blankets, books and keepsakes, whilst the handy round folding side table from our Bergen collection provides a perfect place to rest your coffee cup.

Of course you’ll need somewhere exceedingly comfortable to sit, so why not include this modern classic chair, upholstered in soft grey linen effect fabric? The neutral colour will blend perfectly with the look – and a splash of colour can be added with a bright cushion.    

You may think that creating a minimalist look means leaving the walls bare. However, just a few key accessories will transform your house into a home and complete this trend.


Consider mirrors and clocks. They don’t have to be ornate, in fact these simple round wall mirrors with glossy white or natural frames fit perfectly with the Scandi Furniture Collection. 


A wall clock can be a statement piece (as well as being useful for keeping track of time!) and we particularly like this one made from mango wood, with its contrasting aluminium numbers. 

Also complementing the Scandi Earth trend perfectly are these three lights. Which you choose depends on whether you need a floor lamp, table lamp or task lamp – or all three.

Whatever your selection, the elegant sleek lines and neutral colours will add a touch of sophistication to your scheme.
