Since getting my own place I have become increasingly interested in interiors and what the current interior trends are. We rent so I can't paint walls or do any drastic renovations so I use accessories to add those trends into my home. I'm delighted that Metallics are here to stay but gutted that white is out and colour is in!

Two of the major influences in the interior world are Dulux and Pantone and by using their colour trends you can get an idea of whats to come in 2016.

The Dulux colour forecast of the year says that white is out in 2016 and colour is in. They have gone with Cherished Gold which has evolved from last years Copper Blush shade. This adds an element of luxury and it means Metallics are here to stay which makes me very happy as I bought some lovely copper/ brass baskets for my house.

The Pantone Colour of the Year is actually two colours which blend together Rose Quartz and Serenity. As you can see the two shades effortlessly work together and create a really soft tone for any home.

Colour is key this year but pattern is still going strong. Patterns inspired from around the world. Moroccan furniture is a great way to get those patterns into your home as well as using throws, rugs and other materials to break up the colour blocks. The Marrakech range at Baytree Interiors will bring your home into 2016 with dark colours and striking patterns.

I think there seems to be alot going on with clashing colours and patterns and also there seems to be a mixture of old and new, but it works so well. I love the idea of Moroccan patterns and colours, I think these will work so well with the Metallics, and will add that sense of luxury that Dulux mentioned in their colour forecast.
