Just recently we were lucky enough to travel to arguably the most stylish city in the world - Paris - to attend Maison & Objet. This is one of the most renowned trade shows for home fashion design, decoration, interior design, home trends and inspirations, and this year was full of design delights.
As we are taking on more beautiful items in our Ecora Home range, we look forward to shows such as Maison & Objet, not just for discovering new products and trends but also about catching up with our existing suppliers.
Of course it is difficult to forecast what the leading trends are for 2015 off the back of such a vast show as everyone has their own style, but here are a few of our favourite items.
ICE-CREAM PASTEL COLOURS
There was a retro feeling to many of the interior features this year, with soft colours such as dusty pink, pale blue and sea green on display. We saw these colours used in furniture and cushions, and felt they added a lovely relaxed and vintage edge.

VIVID MALACHITE GREEN, DEEP BLUES AND BRIGHT YELLOWS
We saw dark green malachite colouring in everything from wallpaper to chopping boards, in patterns and on its own. It's even been used by leading fashion designers in their latest collections, so its definitely a colour to take note of. A vivid emerald green, it's one for stylish splashes in an interior.
We also noticed lots of strong blues and yellows used in cushions, throws and towels. A great colour palette for the summer.

We also found beautiful furniture made from reclaimed wood such as elm. Even on small items such as stools, it adds a touch of nostalgia to an interior. Below is our beautiful reclaimed Elm stool from Ecora Home.
2015 is going to a busy and fun year for Ecora Home. Watch this space to see what great new products we are bringing in this year!
