    ‘Espresso Yourself’ with the Pinterest Trend Report plus Deco Off 2024

    ‘Espresso Yourself’ with the Pinterest Trend Report plus Deco Off 2024

    From the sublime to the ridiculous we look at some of the trends forecasted for the year. The Pinterest Trend Report 2024 brings all the fun looking at increased searches from last year to garner what people will be into this year – think chrome, bows, kitsch kitchens and more out there suggestions like ‘the jellyfish aesthetic’ and ‘aquatecture.’
    Our recent trip to Deco Off in Paris provided a more high-end approach, with global designers gathering to see all the upcoming collections from some of the top European designers. From ‘quiet luxury’ to ‘mob wife luxe’, this episode is full of ideas that will make you laugh, groan or maybe feel just a little bit inspired!

    Discovering your authentic colour palette with Karen Haller

    Discovering your authentic colour palette with Karen Haller

    Colour psychology and behavioural design expert, Karen Haller joins us for a fascinating chat about how the colours we surround ourselves with are having an emotional effect on us and our behaviours. Karen believes knowing which colours will affect us positively is helpful to avoid blindly following trends and societal ‘colour norms’ when designing the spaces we live in, but choose colours authentic to ourselves instead. From how to make it work if you and your partner like contrasting colour palettes, to how to recognise which colour palette (or season) is right for you, this episode has so many amazing insights that will help you choose colours you’ll thrive in.
