Trend forecast: Romantic Industrialist

Hard-edged urban style dissolves under the influence of curved silhouettes and delicate shades of rose

Solid materials such as rustic brick prevail, but are paired with soft whites and pink tones for a lighter, more feminine and relaxed look. Gentle textures including soft woollens and quilted fabrics reinforce the sense of the home as a welcoming sanctuary.

Comfort is key for this look. Shades of dusty pink, oyster and pearl, together with the muted off-whites of faded plaster, combine with tactile textures such as washed linen, quilting and faux fur to deliver a relaxed mood.
