Aside from being somewhere we would absolutely LOVE to visit, Cuba is having a major moment in the world of interiors! For those who aren’t planning to make a trip across the pond, why not bring the vibe to your own home?
Now that spring has officially sprung, it’ll soon be time to brighten things up around the house. Our Cuba collection is packed full of punchy colours, sumptuous fabrics and quirky accessories to give your home a real sense of personality – exactly what we need after a drab winter! Of course, depending on your current decor – you might want to introduce varying levels of the trend into your home. You might already have a prominent theme running throughout in which case – a Cuban overhaul will likely jar. So take colours that best complement your existing palette and punctuate with accessories – some rustic frames or coloured glass vases are a lovely nod to the trend. Similarly, some cleverly selected pieces such as a statement mirror, ceiling light and indoor plant are more than enough to enhance the mood.
“Don’t be afraid to contrast patterns.”
On the other hand, if you’re working with a blank canvas – you’ve got ALL the creative licence to fully embrace this unashamedly bold theme. Invest in larger items like a jewel-toned sofa or arm chair, create a focal point with a maximalist print rug or statement curtains. Don’t be afraid to contrast patterns either, it adds to the energy when cushions are clashing with bedding! Ultimately -Cuban influences are meant to be nonchalant and a bit dishevelled so don’t strive to create anything too polished.
