SPRING TRENDS FROM COX & COX

Apart from the dull, grey skies I rather like January.  Not only is it my birthday month (although now I'm the wrong side of 40, it really doesn't matter any more) it is also the time when all the Spring lookbooks start landing in my inbox.  It always brings a ray of sunshine to these cold, dark days and fills me full of inspiration.

The lovely people at Cox & Cox are continuing to produce gorgeous new looks, all styled so beautifully.  For Spring/Summer 2018 there are five key collections:  New Neutral, Faded Elegance, Botanical, Industrial and Scandi.  Although we have seen a lot of these styles over the last year or two, this is freshening them up.  

Grey is still very much the colour of the moment and is softened with faux fur,  rattan and plenty of greenery.  Here's a look at each one in more detail...

THE NEW NEUTRAL

 
A colourless look with a laid back attitude, this trend takes inspiration from beach house luxe, focussing on quality, natural materials and organic shapes.

So there you have it - five different styles but what I love about them is that they can easily be intermixed so as to not look too samey.  A little bit of industrial shelving can sit happily next to some rattan furniture, and the faux plants will look great with any style.
