With the nights drawing in and the days getting longer, I thought I’d cheer us all up with some bright colourful images to keep us going through the winter months.
With designers such as Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler, who has recently opened his first UK store, gaining more recognition on this side of the pond, Palm Springs style looks set to be a big trend. The trend forecasting agency Trend Bible, predicted this back in 2010 with two themes named Palm Springs and Visionaire and we can now see the colours and patterns emerging on our high street.
During London Design week, Fluoro was one of the main trends, which sits well with Palm Springs styling and although not to everyones’s taste, works well as an accent against a more subdued backdrop of monochrome or dark grey.

For a cheaper alternative to the lacquered cube table try painting the Hemnes side table by Ikea, which is similar in shape, with a bright gloss paint and sealing with a few coats of clear varnish or a PVA glue and water mix.
Tropez blue by the Little Greene paint company, from their retrospectives range is a good match.
