Interior Trend: Global Glamour

Combining luxurious colours, textures and prints inspired by far-flung places, the global glamour trend is one of the most versatile interior trends of 2017. Ideal for elevating tired – or perhaps even bland – looking rooms, this interior trend mixes a diverse range of international styles that will add plenty of character and detail to your home. From chic Parisian details and clean Italian finishes to Modern Scandinavian accents and warm Moroccan hues, this globally inspired trend can be used as much– or as little – as you like to add an ultra lux feel that lets your interiors tell a unique story. Its versatile nature also allows the global glamour trend to easily flow from room to room, translating differently in each space to elevate each area’s unique décor. Need a little inspiration?

Paul O’Dell: Add character and culture to your décor with artisan style tiles that evoke stories from far-flung places that are rich with heritage. Perfect for creating a feature wall, floor or splash back, these tiles will also add character to fireplaces and a welcoming feel to entrance porches and halls, too. Vicky Morissette: Use Scandinavian-inspired wood-effect tiles in a white wash or moody shade of grey to add plenty of richness and warmth to a room. I’m a huge fan of the Hygge **link to Hygge blog** look and the new collection blends the perfect mix of rustic charm with contemporary style to add a real cosy and happy feel to the home. Layer with some sheepskin rugs, chunky knits and cashmere throws to really get the look. I love the unique buzz and vibrant style of big cities so use this as inspiration for my own décor. Channel the bright lights of the big city with dazzling white tiles and high gloss finishes, then mix it up with an industrial, city loft feel of on-trend brick effect tiles . When I think of global glamour, I instantly gravitate towards the rich colours and prints from the Middle East. Dramatic backdrops in darker shades paired with shimmering metallic effect mosaics will add a luxurious, almost spa-like feel to an interior space – and what’s not to like about that?
