Trend: Spiced Curves

Arching their way across furniture and accessories and even making a bullseye for our walls, if it’s round it’s hot in this Spiced Curves trend.

Cocooning curves and circular designs are creating more than a ripple in interiors right now. To turn up the heat on the comfort factor, we’ve linked curves with another top interiors colour story, rich spices, which adds depth to the Summer’s earthy terracotta tones. Influenced by Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2019, Spiced Honey, it’s plundered a souk-inspired palette to give the contours of this scheme optimistic hits of paprika, saffron and turmeric.

Together, this blend of warming shade and voluptuous shapes provides just the kind of cosiness our homes are looking for this Autumn/Winter.

If you prefer a darker palette, try layering a backdrop of deep, rich burgundy to this scheme – its warm red undertones will work wonderfully with lighter calamines and terracottas.

The golden oak on the Bevel king size bed and the honey hues of the Hercules bedside table take the temperature up a notch or two in the bedroom.

The Evie footstool complements the linens and the coral and rose tones on the walls while the Novaro lamp and wall mirror in rustic oak ensure the room continues to revolve around a circular theme.

“If you’re after additional storage for your bedroom and want an alternative to a more traditional blanket box, a storage footstool can make a comfy addition to your scheme.”

Spiced Curves Dining Room

The smooth curves and solid oak grain of the Pedestal round dining table and Loop dining chairs are the central feature in this room and bring softness to the space. From a practical point of view, the pedestal base gives you flexibility in how you arrange the seating which is great in a more compact space.

When you’re ready to clear the table you can store crockery and glassware in the solid oak Hercules display cabinet which is finished in a rustic wax to emphasise the beautiful grain.

Spiced Curves Living Room

With a mid-century feel, furniture edges in this trend are tapered or rounded and upholstery is generously padded for a sink-in look. The Evie corner sofa envelopes with its generous seat while lamps, vases and other accessories all showcase equally curvaceous silhouettes.

STYLING TIP

“Low bookcases and units like this Bevel small bookcase or Hercules TV cabinet can be a great way to sneak in extra storage next to any half-height or partition walls where a tall piece might feel cumbersome.”
