LEICESTER, England, January 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
From traditional English ports to Scandi retreats, Next Home promises a place in the sun for all tastes this Spring Summer.
GOOD LIFE breathes an air of Scandinavian simplicity into the home with a fresh palette of soft yellow, ochre and putty shades. Fifties-inspired furniture such as leather sofas and retro armchairs are updated with jam jar vases, novelty ceramic cow heads and new nature motifs. Craft influences are still key with crochet, knit and appliqué dominating textiles. Lighting? Add a statement jug table lamp and architectural pendant light to finish off this season's stripped back, home-grown look.
A riot of florals - BLOSSOM AND BLOOM sees hand-painted organic prints taken straight from the catwalk and translated into beautiful watercolour designs for bedding, impactful wallpapers and embellished cushions. Punchy raspberry pink and turquoise tones seen in glass bird ornaments and oversized vases are softened with pastel hues for a more wistful feel.Something more urban? Weathered metal finishes, painted wood and ticking stripes see BOAT HOUSE SALVAGE take on an industrial feel with nautical elements including porthole mirrors, rope lanterns and vintage style clocks. Slate grey, chambray blue and primary red give a subtle nod to traditional marine colours whilst keeping their cool. To give the look extra edge, painted tin pendants and distressed furniture finish off the factory vibe. For a trip further afield, SAN DIEGO ticks all the boxes. From acacia effect furniture to knitted seat pods, the heat is on with fiery shades of red and burnt orange. Adding a touch of luxe, metallic sequin cushions and opulent glassware are juxtaposed against natural wicker lighting to give this Californian look a more homely appeal. Decadent and quirky, ELEGANT TWIST introduces a rich palette of plum and grey with softer muted heathers and tinted greys. Architectural printed wallpaper, mirrored screens and carriage clocks all aid the flamboyant feel of this story, whilst tongue-in-cheek accessories such as the Weimaraner cushion add an element of eccentricity. Whether it's a staycation or vacation, Next's latest collection offers a look to emulate everyone's preferred destination.
