Essence is about reduction and simplicity, stripping back to the bare essentials. With Essence, we appear to the previous for inspiration, but view retro colours and styling in a fresh, new way. After seasons of red and yellow-based mostly greys, Essence introduces a motion in direction of neutral and cooler greys. To generate a all-natural palette of neutrals and grey, components are pure with colors derived from the materials themselves. Deepest black and linen whites grow to be the base for organic tones of wheat, stone and elemental greys. These tones turn into essential alongside white.
Soft, feminine and poetic kinds are crucial in this trend. In the absence of colour, texture and geometric forms are utilized as focal factors in interiors.

The opposite of Essence, Impulse is eclectic and maximal. Impulse celebrates the importance of spontaneity, encouraging us to be adventurous and inventive. Far more is more when it comes to Impulse. Impulse evokes a sense of happiness. It’s a provocative mix, embracing items that do not match. A wild fusion of styles, colour and patterns, geometric shapes and tantalising, energetic colours are central to the trend. There is a powerful tendency for daring colour against a backdrop of white, light woodgrains, amazing neutrals or fine greys. Also implied is the bleaching effect of sturdy sunlight that offers rise to faded colour, bringing a new consider on nostalgia.
