Lucy Shore, Creative Designer at window expert, Swish, looks at the influence the night sky is having on home décor trends:

“With designers on the catwalk using star constellations within their collections, we are seeing interior trends taking on the night sky for a dramatic effect.”

The Capella finial from Swish’s Elements range, prices start from around £37.79 for a 1.2m / 19mm pole kit.

“Creating an intergalactic treat for the eyes, space bound styling combines shimmer and shine with mineral marble and textures for amazing effect. What I love about this trend is the freedom to build a scheme that is as rich and daring as it is shimmering and enchanting.

Use combinations of the above colour palettes to help create this trend in your home

“Contrast the gorgeous dark blue shades of space with the lighter marbled creams and greys of the minerals, and you have a truly opulent take on this trend. Add shimmering fabrics, furniture and accessories in intense purple and heather hues to bring hints of colour and soften the overall feel. Finally, be sure to include accents of gold, silver and coloured glass throughout to create a look that is so rich and luxurious it is out of this world.

“Such a confident scheme requires an equally assured window dressing to ensure the look works across the room. Consider the multifaceted Capella metal pole finial set from Swish’s Elements range, which echoes the mineral aspects of this scheme perfectly, or the crystal-like Kwartz finial option from the Design Studio collection. Both are available in chrome, satin chrome, graphite or antique brass options that will continue the metal elegance this trend demands.

“Or, for a slightly softer finish, the painted wooden finish of Swish’s Romantica ball finial curtain pole set in stunning metallic Pewter is a great alternative. With a 35mm diameter it is also an ideal option for heavier weight curtains.

“A bold tie-back will also make a fantastic statement here. For instance, the Aubergine / Lilac, Lilac / Amethyst, Fuchsia, Cream / Ivory or Silver / Ivory options from Swish’s oversized Marrakesh tie-back collection (£18.89 each) ensure you can add a dash of luxurious colour that cannot help but boost this look. Alternatively, for a subtler touch of colour, the Finesse range combines a neat crystal with a silky tassel finish (£5.93). Try the Mulberry, Black, Teal or Ivory options to really tie this trend together.”

Prices for the Romantica pole sets start from £80.99 for a 1.5m pole, the Elements collection ranges from £37.79 for a 19mm / 1.2m pole and, available as separates, prices for the Design Studio collection start from around £16.20 for a pair of finials.
