Home Uncategorised A Very Peri New Year – and other exciting trends

With each New Year comes a new set of trends.  The seasonal, flash-in-the-pan ones seem to have been replaced by slower, enduring themes with a nod to nature.  These are the ones we love best.  The thoughtful, mindful trends that complement our lifestyles.  The trends that are for keeps.

Travel inspired interiors

Our wanderlust may be a little dampened – but we can still bring the joys of travel home.  Wallpaper is bigger than ever for 2022 and this beautiful “bush theatre” design, by Cole & Son, creates the perfect backdrop for a rustic interior.  It includes a Petrified Wood Basin atop a Tree Trunk Pedestal Washstand, and a beautiful pair of Branchwood Sun Loungers.  Why wait for summer!

Very Peri

Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2022 – Very Peri – is a new shade and it adds a lovely, flowery pop colour.  It works beautifully with smoky grey and off-white tones, and alongside natural materials like limestone and pale oak. Our own petal toned designs include Azul Medianoche, Lavanda and paler Claro – handmade glazed walls with a perfectly imperfectly rustic finish.


The trend for tactile, natural surfaces is still going strong.  It’s been reinforced by lots of new and enduring trends; by ‘biophilic’ design and a desire to bring the outside in, and the popularity of wholesome, authentic materials.  So many of our favourite designs connect with nature – from our Petrified Wood Stool and Teak Root Pendant light designs, to our Onyx Basin, hewn from stone and hand polished to bring out its natural tiger stripe.


Natural, tactile materials and true craftmanship go hand-in-hand.  Some of the best designs are also aged by hand, creating a beautiful vintage look.  There are lots of examples in our collections.  On the floor, there’s Burgundy Flagstones – one of our best-selling designs, with their textured surface and pillowed edges; our Fusion Glazed Wall Tiles which are made using a traditional method called Bicottura and the Branchwood designs, handmade from salvaged teak wood.

Interior design with a conscience

Some trends become lifestyle choices, like the buy-once-buy-well approach and sustainability.  It’s a very hot topic, and there are lots of different views, but most agree that investing in quality, carefully-sourced natural materials – especially those that are reclaimed and recycled – is good in all respects.  Natural organic materials, like wood and stone, align with all of the trends and they help create a happier, healthier home.  What’s not to love?
