The Etre team’s best of 2013

To end the year we decided it would be fun to put together design boards of our favourite things from 2013. Alex, Emily and Jody have put together theirs –  and as you can see they show the huge differences in personal design taste in the office!

Jody – “Rustic Neon – Continuing with my ongoing love affair of all things neon and natural combined. A hint of bright colour accents a white backdrop with rustic wood and natural materials. Colour dipped ceramics and wooden accessories, homemade woollen pom poms, neon printed linen cushions and bright herringbone wool blankets combine the look.”

Emily – “I decided to combine my love of all things deco with some traditional patterns and heavyweight geometrics. I’ve loved Forest Green for decades (despite it being my school uniform colour) and I love how it sits with mustard yellow and black. Amy Somerville’s tiles are something I discovered at Decorex this year, and I’d love to own the Hermes Rallye 24 table settings in black and yellow… Hopefully Santa will get the message!”

Alex – “A selection of impactful geometric patterns and earthy ethnic textiles provide a great background to more muted pieces with the warm textiles bringing a great handmade feel to spaces. The raw, unsophisticated feel is continued with distressed wood and uncoated metal pieces, finalised with attention paid to detailing and pops of accent colours.”
