Trend spotting + my interview at Bolia

in Design Trends

A slightly different post today about a slightly different occasion...

I was recently interviewed by a local magazine and when we met at the closest Bolia (opened in a new window/tab) showroom there were two things that grabbed my attention:

  1. my outfit, that was matching the showroom perfectly (not done on purpose, I swear!)
  2. the amount of trends I could spot around!
     

You can find the interview on Les Toiles Studio (opened in a new window/tab) and below is a recap of the trends that were most represented in the showroom...

Terrazzo

In all kinds of shapes and colours, terrazzo is by far one of the biggest trends at the moment, and the showroom at Bolia was full of it!

Velvet

If I had to describe the sofas in the showroom in three words I would say: wide (up to very wide actually), comfortable (with loads of fluffy cushions) and velvet!

Gold

From light fixtures to little touches here and there, gold is all around Bolia's collection for the new season. It's safe to say that the gold trend is not going anywhere quite yet!

Mustard yellow

Another star for the new season is mustard yellow, which gives an interesting touch of colour with a fall/winter vibe.

By the way, mustard yellow makes a great pair with the hues that have been elected Colour of the Year 2019 so far. From a tone-on-tone effect with Spiced Honey (by Akzo Nobel), to a warm-earthy pairing with Spice of Life (by Dunn Edwards) and Cavern Clay (by Sherwin Williams), to a more striking and unexpected match with Day Spa (by Diamond Vogel) and Night watch (by PPG Paints).

Pink

Pink is definitely one of the colours of Bolia's new collection. The showroom was literally half pink and it matched my outfit perfectly the day of the interview!
