New Year Interiors: Hawaiian Noir
We’re taking a trip to the tropics this spring, with an opulent homeware trend set to refresh your space. Hawaiian Noir is a dreamy infusion of cool and calm, with striking pops of colour composed against brushed golds and mature metallics. The mood is exotic, the colour palette vibrant and the accessories? Oh come on, you know how we do it in Home, they’re fabulous. Starting from only £1.50, this interior edit has us starting the new year as we mean to go on: looking forever chic. Remove last season’s living cushions and prepare for a refresh, this trend has seriously caught our attention…
The print direction for Hawaiian Noir is all about the botanics. Vintage palms and batik-style tie-dye are our hero prints for the season, adding an inch of exotic to any boudoir. Think lush greenery and striking botanical prints to add a little 'Noir' to your home. Clashing prints cause serious impact, evoking a cosmopolitan vibe that’s too good to resist. Paired with deep-toned furniture and a consistent colour palette, pattern proves a calming addition to any living space. If you’re a travel connoisseur with a taste for the tropics, then you’re in luck; we’re bringing the rainforest to your doorstep.

Hawaiian Noir’s colour palette takes ‘outdoors brought in’ to a whole new level, with thriving shades of green and yellow popping to perfection against navy and teal. We’re living for acid yellow this season, the highlight shade projected across the trend (and all interiors for 2017, shh), adding an unexpected edge to this ‘grown up’ aesthetic. With banana leaf greens, red torched gingers and bold teal colourways fighting for attention in this springtime trend, we’re livening up our living area with a new take on tropical.
Simple statements are easily made with Hawaiian Noir, taking striking colours to unexpected areas; line your double bed with a lemon-toned fitted sheet, and pull back the duvet for a wink of vibrancy. For real worshippers of an interior statement, you’re in luck. Blues, tans and feisty yellows are only a handful of the beaut shade selection served up this season across accessories and bedding. With our value prices, it’s easy to experiment without totally abandoning monochrome loyalty (we got you gals).

Aside from a statement duvet, introducing the Noir look is easily achieved with our accessory selection. Stealing our hearts, once again, is the interior hero that’s here to stay - welcome back Pineapple. This adorable motif has grown up for SS17, featured heavily across the trend in brushed gold tones. Whether bookends take your fruity fancy, or an embellished cushion is your pop of pineapple, you’re running out of excuses for not featuring one of these in your home.
The metallic magic doesn’t end there, as we welcome copper and antique-gold toned lanterns to our shopping list. Twist up tradition and position on the floor, beside a large standing plant or hallway entrance, for the classiest of interior surprises. It’s all about the finite detail with Hawaiian Noir, so embossing takes priority. Dimpled copper vases and embellished Buddha motifs prove additional stars of the show, so join us in opting for accessories with a little extra edge.
Now you’ve been taken on a virtual vacation it’s time to head in store and indulge on all this interior goodness for real. With a predominantly darker colour palette, Hawaiian Noir is here to ease you into the New Year, before pink and orange takes centre stage this summer. So as we wait for the sun to make its cameo, and bask in what’s left of the winter weather, accept frosty defeat and treat yourself to our latest zen-filled collection.
