Inspired by the colour clash catwalk trend, playful is all about freedom, re-invention, rule breaking and fun. Don’t be afraid to clash bright colours and be open to a mix and match approach to your decor. Most importantly, don’t take this trend too seriously – it’s designed to be bright, optimistic and fun! Lavish colour and creativity in your home to bring positivity and happiness to the room you spend a third of your life in! Be dazzling, be intense, be playful.


Invest in a bright, bold sofa if you really want to do this trend justice. Our Portobello sofa (and Bermondsey chair if you really want to perfect the look) is a great style for building up with colour. Add colourful cushions to create a great mismatched effect.


Cushions can be your greatest asset when it comes to creating a wacky space. Match them to other aspects for a more subtle style, use them to bring in even more colours, or add patterns to break up colour blocking like our Embroidered Flamingo Pink Bolster cushion.

Watercolour Lily FINAL small

Add a splash of colour to your bed linen with this gorgeous Watercolour Lily set from Lipsy. The swirls of colour add to the playful feel, as well as introducing plenty of hues into your bedroom all in one hit! Mix and match pillowcases and bed sheets to really add to the fun.


Don’t be tempted to play it safe and keep your walls neutral. Instead, try something like this Scion Pepino wallpaper to bring in that all-important playful colour without being overwhelming. In comes in a few different colourways so you’re sure to find something to suit.


Finish off the whole look with the brightest, loudest rug you can find. Our Illusion Prism rug in Pink Multi packs a colourful punch and the geometric shapes are an added element of fun. If you’d like a bit of continuity with this trend, try picking out certain colours of this rug and finding home accessories, or even furniture, to match.
