Chelsea Barracks - Elicyon by MichaelSinclair

As 2019 draws to a close, Charu Gandhi, Founder & Director of leading interior design studio Elicyon, gives a snapshot of the top colours, textures and techniques that she and her team are working with and expect to to be top trends for interiors next year.

Earth Tones

‘Following a few years of bright jewel tones, we are starting to use deeper earthy shades to our schemes, such as rust, ochre, umber and sienna. These rich and complex neutrals are vibrant yet serene and lend our interiors a significant degree of refinement and personality.’

Material Honesty

‘Material honesty is the idea that a substance should be itself in its pure form rather than re-worked to mimic something else. We are seeing this return to interiors in the form of untreated timbers, unpolished stones, raw textures and undyed natural fabrics. Blended in with our otherwise refined material selection, these coarse finishes and textures add contrast and definition to our schemes.’

Decorative Soft Furnishings

‘It’s all in the detail, particularly when it comes to soft furnishings. We have recently experimented with layering trims and fringing to curtains and commissioning elaborate embroidery and bead work to our cushions and throws. These bespoke touches hugely elevate a space and add heaps of personality.’

Exposed Detailing

‘In a similar way to how material honesty applies to finishes, exposed detailing applies to bespoke furniture design. Instead of covering joints and concealing fixings, we like to celebrate them and make them a feature. Not only does it add personality to a piece, it also shows off the fact that the pieces are bespoke and hand crafted.’
