This years London Design Week 2017 at Chelsea Harbour brought us fresh and fruity trends of colour clashing bold and bright design and the serene sophistication of swedish lagom all under one roof.
Home to 120 showrooms and over 600 of the worlds most prestigious brands this is the centre for interiors bursting with enthusiasm for bespoke design.
Floral print, patterned patchwork, chunky geometrics and digital distressed surface really launched the spring season into action and adventure leading the latest trend stories forward.
Pantones greenery was at the forefront of many of the showrooms infusing an intense tropical rainforest feel embracing a canopy of modern nature.

Palettes were warm bursting with berry tones of deep maroon, indigo dyed blues, bold and bright emerald greens, burnt orange and coral tones creating multicolour contrast.
Neutrals were injected with a warmth of chocolate tinted taupe and sandy greys where cooler neutrals linked with true blues moving away from teal tones and silver hints. Brassy golds teamed well with a nomadic influence of hand drawn painterly design in burnt orange tones and coral.
Patterns embraced bringing an outdoor feel within the home with florals combining pinks, purples and grassy greens. Geometrics were simple but lines were bold and blocky with fretwork allowing for interlocking woven patterns.
A digital influence on techniques gave pixelated textures and knotted weave a chance to graduate and stipple blocky colour without becoming too overpowering within a background texture.
We're feeling inspired and cannot wait to apply the trends to our hand knotted designer rugs!
