Looking ahead to color in 2019/2020 and finding inspiration in fun fall cocktails, fashion and all things spicy..... #behindthescenes
Introducing ... ⭐️ Juliette ⭐️
A diminutive version of the Gloria. A modestly sized 45cm in diameter. More affordable too. And perfectly portable. This was inspired by a client’s need for a dressing room light. 💡 I love it when interior designers ask for modifications as it inspires new product development. Flaming orange goose and rooster feathers combine for ultimate colour density and fluffiness. Finished with my current favourite trim - bronze ric rac with a spicy gimp. Made whilst listening to @bbc6music in the afternoon rain. Well, not actually IN the rain!
It's been design heaven recently as Axon has been here, there and everywhere from Maison & Objet in Paris to the London Design Festival. So much creativity, so much inspiration.
With our notebooks brimming with ideas, we're just taking a moment to capture our observations, so this week follow our posts to see the key interiors trends we've taken away from Maison & Objet.
Maison & Objet is the international authority for home decor, interior design, architecture and lifestyle culture and trends, so its biannual fair is THE biggest event in the calendar for the design world. Something Lisa Clarke, Axon's Creative Director and co-owner, would never miss. Ever.
Lisa gets so much inspiration from this renowned showcase of home decor trends. And this is what she excitedly brings back to Axon, so that she and the team can help our clients translate those trends for their customers.
For example, if you want to know the colour trends coming to interiors retailers near you soon, let Lisa reveal the new shades of the season: 'We're calling them spice-rack colours,' she summarises. Yes, brown is the new black, both in fashion and interiors.

Hello Saturday - we are so close to finishing but I’m now regretting the white walls. Am I mad to be even thinking of re-doing so quickly So many decisions during the extension that somehow this area doesn’t feel warm enough. I’m thinking cedar wood strips on the wall near the dining table and spice tones on the living room walls. C’mon #farrowandball with your new paint colours. #livingroom #colourmyhome #happyhomestyle #spicetones #modernrugsuk #realinstahomes #renovation
Did you guess this gorgeous colour was coming I’m beside myself with the sheer bliss of working with such beautiful feathers in such exquisite colours. Here we have a bespoke yellow goose feather underneath a gold rooster feather with mustard tips. This was ordered before I had a Pantone book so I went to the paint shop and searched through the Dulux colour cards until I found “golden bark 3”. Cut it out, popped it the post ... et voilá! Clients can find their colours anywhere, just as long as we can get it in an envelope. Or Pantone, of course.
This triptych is shipping out to Dallas, Texas this week! That’s one of the places I’ve actually been to that my painting is going to LOL ☺️
