Anyone in Very HQ will tell you that my taste in décor is retro camp to say the least. Vivid pops of colour and unabashedly playful and I’m pretty much at home. So imagine my delight when we unveiled our Fusion home trend for SS15!
The trend is all about exotic colour and poolside chic. Think your favourite holiday sun spot meets Vegas. Colours should be vibrant and clashing, with plenty of flamingo prints, tropical palm leaves, hot pinks and aquatic blues. If you pick just two must-have accessories, go for the tropical flamingo cushion and the flamingo duvet cover set – perfect for updating your bedroom!
Also great in the bedroom is the Cindy occasion chair, which blends a fun retro shape with a stunning hot pink for some feminine cool. It’s ideal for chilling out in too. You can even rest your cuppa on one of our fab two-tone end tables! Accessorise further with palm print cushions and a shaggy pink rug. This isn’t a trend for the faint hearted, but it’s a real joy to wake up to!
If you’re styling your living room, you really can’t go wrong with modernist white furniture to set off the colour. Try the Elton sideboard and Logan sofa bed for a cool, contemporary look. Mix it up with a super retro cream and black armchair too – think Mad Men with even more colour! Lighting is key as well, and it’s a great way to add a fun flash of colour. I love the Leighton drum pendant, which comes in hot pink, or the Anneka pendant, which is available in new colours! For a bit of directional lighting, go for the Leo task lamp in white for a vintage vibe.
Remember, you can shop our entire Fusion collection on the dedicated trends hub, with even more tips on how to style it!
