Instantly add warmth to  a cool monochrome colour scheme with pops of feel-good yellow. A compact two-seater sofa can be brought to life in a bright shade of Mustard. This sunny hue is the perfect accent colour to make monochrome black and white accessories really standout. Mustard is VERY much the shade to be seen in 2019!

We're big fans of berber-style rugs. The soft underfoot, deep pile is a real treat for feet on any floor. The signature simple geo pattern s ultra-versatile and lends a global nomad vibe to the overall look.

Adding plenty of foliage helps to add not only a Scandi sense of wellness, but a splash of leafy green colour. Following the trend for displaying foliage in natural woven baskets helps to add a further element of rustic charm.

A wall of macramé hangings instantly adds a decorative 'boho' touch to any room.

A grey button-back chair offers a smart, tailored look. When combined with the more eclectic elements the tailoring becomes less formal, and more relaxed.
