Trends - Product Design and Development

We don’t just import – we innovate.

At Pacific Lifestyle many of our homeware and decorative lighting ranges are designed and developed by our creative in-house team and meet specific UK quality and design standards.

Each year we carefully research the trends that will influence the home interiors market and pull together mood boards to help build our collections.  We review and compile style direction incorporating colour, textures and fabrics trends.

Malmo Mood Board


In Malmo we’ve taken Scandi influences and mixed them with warm textiles and details to create a beautifully crisp but inviting look.

White is used liberally to create a blank backdrop for your home. This is complemented through accessorising with plants and greenery from tiny cacti to large leafy palms. Hints of tonal pinks are brought through on textiles and ornaments. By using just the right amount of accessories we strike the perfect balance between a fresh, clean home and a cosy, welcoming environment.

Furniture is minimal using clean lines and modern, Scandi styling. Metal frames and shapes are emphasised in matt black and antique brass. These are then combined with pale wood, white washed surfaces and raw, unfinished materials, which all help to contribute to the trend’s organic charm.

While pieces are highly considered, practical and often understated, they are elegant and beautifully made. Design is a priority and this is shown through articulated choices and minimal shaping. Through doing this, stunning spaces are created which are guaranteed to evoke both comfort and style.

Astro Mood Board


Warm tones of brass, gold and copper are the highlights within our new 2019 trend, Astro.

Deep indigo blues emulate a starry midnight sky; creating a bold backdrop that allows metallic accents, matte neutrals and graphic elements to take centre stage.

This trend is an expansion of our 2018 industrial trend Arterior, but with a smoother image; with distressed surfaces and rugged style being replaced with a softer look and more muted colours.

Homewares are minimalistic, featuring clean lines, rounded edges and block colour. However, a strong use of raw materials throughout, such as concrete, wood and granite, keep the industrial look going strong.

Glints of metal, geometric patterns and delicate foliage juxtapose against these tough-luxe materials; lifting the overall look and creating layers of visual interest.

This trend has a touch of the ethereal whilst keeping the balance with its strong masculine undertones and darker colour palette.

Skye Mood Board


Essentially a relaxed, textural style story where muted, neutral colours tone with bold earthy tones; terracotta and deep blue, paprika and mud for example; creating a warm, homely feel with more than a hint of coastal charm.

Inspiration comes from artisan makers in coastal villages using natural sourced materials to create luxury yet individual pieces. From chunky, knitted throws and heavy furs to cast concretes and hammered metals, carefully crafted textures are mixed together complementing each other perfectly in this cosy setting.

Looking to British beaches and the sea, we have taken influences from driftwood and fishing nets with woven rattans and reclaimed woods.

Silvers and nickels come through on metalwork. Shiny, polished surfaces mimic textures found on boats in marinas. Whereas these contrast with blackened, antiqued and hammered pieces that echo the weathering nature of the ocean.

The furniture in the SKYE trend combines washed wood with clever use of texture and design, and metal, using natural colours and textures to create beautifully rustic pieces with tactile surfaces. These striking pieces can regularly have their rustic background juxtaposed with surprising elements of beautiful, manufactured metals.

This textural explosion gives your space character and instant warmth creating a snug, hygge atmosphere whilst maintaining an element of cutting edge design and on trend pieces.

Lighting has a nautical feel with the use of driftwood, rope and handmade stoneware ceramics generally topped off with a cream cotton shade with beautiful natural slubs within the weave, for a relaxed finish.

The use of clocks, mirrors and gifts can truly cement a style so with that in mind we also have a selection of nautical inspired products all the while ensuring they are true to the artisanal flavour of this trend.

Langham Mood Board


Deep, luxurious colours and textures fill this trend, with deep velvets and shiny, gloss tiles clashing with brushed metals and glass. With an array of indulgent tones, this trend is opulent and sophisticated.

Taking inspiration from travel in the 1920s, we look at ornate train carriages, decadent hotel styling and art deco fashions. Everything is oversized, lavish and grand with daring colour clashes and brash designs. Metalwork is gold – either antiqued, shiny or brushed – to stand out against the deep colourful backdrop and with dark painted walls, colours and metalwork pop even more creating a rich, abundant feel.

Furniture is bold in black, jungle green and dark wood, however this is brightened with colour pops of mulberry, mustard and teal being brought through on accessories. This trend has no limitations and there is no restraint on the colours featured – allow vibrant bursts to come through to create your own distinctive style.

Dark marble is also prominent across accessories in deep greens and blacks and mixing with lustrous metallic glass. Velvet is also key for this trend featuring on shades and in upholstery. This luxurious material is further complemented with metallic satins and heavy decadent fabrics adding further to this opulent style.

Azaleas Mood Board


Delicate cherry blossom branches weave up from the floor and flow across the ceiling, welcoming glorious birds and filling the room with beautiful scent.

The Azaleas trend brings the prettiest of nature’s creations inside, for a beautiful interior that’s filled with an abundance of life.

Its enchanted feel is accentuated with a colour palette of delicate tones; layers of mint, blush and muted plum lift the room; creating a space that feels fresh, airy and light.

Heavily detailed wallpaper, furniture and decorative accessories create a strong visual impact, whilst clean spaces of white panelling, cream-coloured sofas and linen lamp shades catch the eye and allow the space to breathe.

Champagne metallic is in abundance, with grand, ornate mirrors allowing light to bounce around the room, further accentuating an ethereal feel. Real flowers in statement vases further blur the lines between inside and out. Set the tone with pretty photo frames and delicate trinkets.

The furniture for Azaleas is always timeless; turned wood in soft white, mirrored furniture with Venetian opulence, and sometimes a beautiful handle on a furniture piece is all that is needed for the grandioso performance.

Lighting tends to be bejewelled, delicate and feminine.  Crystal chandeliers bounce the light source around the interior and beautiful hand finished shades on timelessly elegant bases create the enchanting environment, synonymous with the Azaleas theme.

Fresh greens and neutral tones mix with Scandi style for this bright, modern trend. Scandi Earth perfectly combines stylish design with organic charm to craft a cosy yet minimalist feel.

Furniture is highly considered and functional with modern finishes and smooth textures, whilst unfinished, raw materials evoke this trend’s organic charm.

Furs and textured wools bring a comforting, relaxed feel to your home whilst minimal styling helps it remain modern and spacious. The balance of these two contrasting attitudes creates a fresh yet homely atmosphere.

Use basket weave and pale, grainy wood textures with cream and grey tones to create your neutral colour palette.  Complement these with grassy greens and softer shades to brighten up your space and add a crisp, refreshing mood.

Antique brass and copper highlights can be used to add interest. Arrange these with glossy green house plants and muted succulents to liven up and energise your space.
