Trend Watch: Fall For Fauvism


by Michelle Hanley
27th Jul 2016

Splashes of colour, hints of brights, primary pops: the Fauvism trend is simple to work into your existing interiors, is low commitment and can work with almost every style.

A term coined by critic Louis Vauxcelles, the Fauves (Wild Beasts) were all about colour, exploring its emotional and energetic effect with a vibrant result. Instead of going all out fauve, we suggest popping this playful palette with accessories and keeping fittings and surfaces neutral.

Be bold and experiment with contrasting colours, described by Andr? Derain as, ‘deliberate disharmonies’. Keep an eye out for lively linear motifs that Henri Matisse would have been proud of while chosing fabrics and soft furnishings.
