Do you dream of exploring the world; seeing new places and cultures; get a global essence around your home! It’ll happen for us soon, we’re certain. Until then, we want to show you a trend, the next closest thing and the influence you’re going to want in your home.

The trend for Global Essence explained

This diverse trend is a celebration of pattern, colour and eclecticism. It welcomes a fusion of handcrafted style with rugged texture – the devil is in the detail right here. Think rich earthy shades over cooler grey tones, intricate detailing and handmade ceramics. As seen across both interiors and fashion, the trend is nomadic and free – here’s how to get the look at home.

A Global Essence palette

A Global Essence palette can be found deep in the earth, sourced from clay and volcanic rocks. Pigments like terracotta and ochre symbolise this warm decor and promise a living space that’s welcoming. Other colours making the cut include natural dark neutrals which effortlessly pair with rattan home accessories. We especially love African Baobab, Canopy, Blue Nile and Tree House from our Andrew Martin paint collection.

Key materials

Drawing on the raw beauty of natural materials, with this home decor trend, plenty of wood, rope, rattan and wicker are used. Craftsmanship embodies this artisanal style where no two things are the same, and handmade imperfections are celebrated. Our hub experts can help you capture this look with bespoke joinery and floors, not to mention high-quality ironmongery. Bespoke pieces that take influence from around the globe will create layered interest and help your home tell a story.

Pattern and prints that wow

A diverse celebration of pattern and colour, Global Essence highlights a love for exploration and travel. As our exposure to other cultures expands, it’s only natural this trend and other similar styles filter into our homes. Get the look with handmade dying techniques like daring Ikat, Indian block prints and paisley soft furnishings. Additionally, you can’t go wrong with heaps of pom-poms and animal prints like Ark Parchment wallpaper from Andrew Martin.
