Statement ceilings, tempting terrazzo tiling and an abundance of dynamic mixed metals, could we be any more excited about all of the current trends?
The in-thing in the 70’s, ousted in the 80’s and back with a vengeance in 2018, terrazzo is here, and it’s really rather lovely.
Whilst dreaming about interiors (something we do regularly here at Fineline), we found ourselves crafting a terrazzo Pinterest board, brimming with décor inspiration. Did you know that according to Pinterest, saves for ‘terrazzo’ are up 316%! At first, we weren’t sure about this style making a comeback. But the more we pinned, the more we fell head over heels in love.
Terrazzo is a composite material, which makes it really customisable. Chips of marble, quartz, glass, granite or other suitable material are bonded with either concrete or epoxy resin and can be used for numerous surfaces and purposes. The most popular use being walls and flooring, but bring it into 2018, we’re seeing terrazzo coffee tables, sinks, kitchen counter tops and lamp bases.
What do you think to terrazzo? Are you welcoming it with open arms? Or shutting the door on it and leaving it in 1970?
Another big love in our lives at the moment, surpassing terrazzo, are mixed metals. We just can’t get enough of this trend. Whether it’s a statement aluminium chair, a brushed nickel sink or metallic tiling, we want it, and we want it all.
The new trend for metals? Mix them up! The unspoken role used to be to stick to one finish in one room or even through the whole house.
Well, it’s time to do away with the rule book, rip it into a thousand tiny pieces, because mixing up metals is something we love!
The kitchen is arguably the most metallic room in the home. There’s so much scope and creative freedom when it comes to metal in the kitchen. We recommend playing about with a couple or a few metals to add contrast and style.
