It is quite a moody lush look with darks leaves and little to no flowers look and fits into urban chic style effortlessly.

Marble – Marble is often partnered with Renaissance-style/ classical look accents and has been thought of as a forgotten look. But a number of décor and style trends have seen it make a comeback in a completely modern light. And is often mixed with a metal or natural material to create a modern look.
Tribal – We’re seeing a lot of tribal trends. It is a way to embrace culture everywhere! It gathers inspiration from colours, textures, and patterns that have been seen throughout civilization. The tribal trend comes from a number of different cultures from the heart of Africa; the aromatic and vibrant markets of India, to the tops of the Mountains of Peru. The trend is not only seen in bright vibrant colours but also neutral earthy toned colours to match the landscapes of the countries it comes from.
