New trends to try (and their colour matches)

11 Jan 2017

If your list of New Year's resolutions includes 'freshening up the house'... we hear you. We went shopping for homewares that will update homes in 2017, and found two big trends: a reinforcement of slow-living, where quality over quantity reigns; and statement pieces, featuring colour that's more complex than ever before.

Here are our picks to get each look. Some of the products featured may be available in store for a limited time.

Hawke's Bay store Blackbird Goods is a nod to slow living, a lifestyle that favours quality over quantity. Inspired by the store's current collection, this look is made up of natural hues, quality pieces and beautiful texture. Think wicker over plastic, ceramics made locally, and a dusky colour palette inspired by nature and minimalism.

Complement the look with Resene Good Morning, Resene Rice Cake, and Resene Sand.

Seen here are Dehei Linen, Curionoir Candle in Tobacco Nights, Handwoven House Shoes, Original Artwork by Blackbird, and Renee Boyd Ceramics Bowls, available at www.blackbirdgoods.co.nz.

Not so long ago, making a statement usually went hand in hand with highly saturated colour. Not so anymore, as colour has become more nuanced, prints are more sophisticated, and texture is more popular than ever. This summer's collection from Freedom Furniture has much to offer in statement pieces that feature grown-up colour combinations... not shy of colour, but never garish. 

Our complementary colour suggestions push the boundaries just so, mixing Resene Anakiwa and Resene Subzero with sour yellow Resene Sunflower. 

Seen here are Cirque Cushion, Split Cushion, Totem Cushion, Copenhagen 3 Seat Sofa, Spectrum Floor Rug, Chroma I Canvas, Grace Coffee Table, and Omaha Pouffe, available at www.freedomfurniture.co.nz.
