Sophisticated muted metallic mix

marble lamps copper metallic floor staning table.
This trending look is all about the muted metallic, mixing in a calm sophisticated way. Last year, strong, bold copper took the high street by storm, but this year we’ll see blush, muted copper mixing with calming golds. This look is all about mixing metallics and harmoniously integrating with the interior design as trend accent.

Mixing metallics as a focal pointCoper bath blush pink tiles grey kitchen

Every room needs a focal point and within the bathroom which has to be the statement bath. Why not get ahead of the rest with a brushed copper or gold bathtub. Offset it with a muted blush pink or grey colour scheme to create a calming look.

Here is an example of the overall trend, with blush pinks and light grey walls adding a softer approach to golds and copper propping. Here mixing metallics in a subtle way can be seen with the tile choice complementing the metallic propping.

Within kitchens it’s not just the accessories which hint metallics. The big trend coming through uses metallic splashbacks which we will see more of in 2017. It’s a bold look we’ve seen in bespoke kitchens, but look out for some new year contenders who are getting in on the action with more affordable versions!

If large statement metallics are too much for your sense of style why not try simple accessories of the mixed muted metallic trend? A subtle way to add metallics to your home is by adding metals to parts of the room always left until last for decorating, such as curtain poles. See how these muted metals work together in complementary tones, work these across the home.

Vlog-Muted Pastel Hues

Hi Joel Young here, the CGI Stylist at Set Vision and welcome to our next VLog entry!

This month I’ve been looking at muted pastel hues which are set to be seen in different trends across the world of interior design for 2017, including the Terracotta and Desert Escape trends. These muted pastel hues are great because they have a natural base which allows them to work as a collective or as a basis with a diverse pop colour.

Why not grab a brew and a biscuit, sit back and relax and enjoy our latest VLog!

CGI has never looked so real!

Pix main image

In 2009 Set Visions embarked on an adventure into the world of CGI. We created our brand “Pix”, which delivered undisputed photorealistic images. 8 years on and we’re delivering incredibly emotive imagery using our Pix technology, CGI has never looked so real, so lifestyle, so daylight.

Pix can also offer tremendous logistical benefits over traditional photography, and using techniques we’ve honed over the years, we deliver consistent quality and speed at the most competitive rates. Take a look at our all new CGI website to see some of our latest work - prepare to be amazed! pix.setvisions.co.uk

Christmas Card Challenge

Set Visions’ latest styling challenge was a festive treat from Ideal Standard UK. Having worked closely with them on several large interior CGI projects recently, we were asked if we would style the Armitage factory for this annual Christmas card. The brief was a Nordic theme but with the classic pointy ears and red boots!

One of our intrepid Interior Stylist spent the morning turning the industrial factory into a winter wonderland, with fairy lights, stars, and a twinkle in his eye. This has certainly got us into the holiday spirit and with Christmas Jumper Day looming we’re itching to take some Elfies!

We are hugely excited for 2017. The next instalment of our Interior Trend Video Blog will kick us off in January, followed by the launch last of our Set Visions websites, completing our rebrand.

Our offices will be closing on Friday 23rd of December with the full team returning on Tuesday 3rd of January 2017.

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics nature

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.

Exposing and unifying the look

The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.
