For 2014 we will be using a combination of something quite raw with precious elements from prints on hemp or an earthy fabric with a metallic element to it. Something that you would consider quite luxurious.
There is a hint of luxury and comfort where window treatments are concerned and roller blinds will be easily controlled via remotes, light switch or even the internet.
There is room for glitter embellishment even in a sophisticated home, you just cannot get enough of metallics and sparkle for 2014 ,embellishments can be incredibly stunning when used in moderation to provide a refined space with personality.

Joining the latest in fabric fashion and becoming the new “it” creature of the year is the butterfly! Butterflies are not particularly new to the fabric or fashion scene, we have always seen them gracing prints in a whimsical way, but for autumn/ winter 2013 they will be creating a surreal style as motifs in kaleidoscopic patterns, translucent overlaid wings and saturated colours, use the butterfly as an icon of the pure elements. Incorporate into your existing interior design and bring a splash of fashion as an accent addition.
