The return of the Riviera 50s look is back. Gone are the bright block colours and the neutral on neutral tones that so many Interior designers fell back on. The look of the modern home is a subtle blend of faded poster colours, textures and elegant lines.

Owing much to the contemporary style of the 1950s, the new look embraces rich textured velvets in jewel toned deep cobalts and cadmiums. Matched with the most delicate of sugar almond pinks and blues with leather, linen, marble and natural teaks and oaks with jewelry like accents of gold and brass. The cohesive quality of the look is in the subtlety and contrast between different pieces. Each singing their own melody but coming together in the rousing chorus.

Our favourites are the effortlessly elegant Hendricks sofa from Habitat, available in a spectrum of Italian linens and French velvets in aubergine and emerald greens. The simplicity of Eichholtz’s Argento globe chandelier in antique brass looks like it was plucked straight out of Tito’s Riviera retreat on the Dalmatian coast. It looks truly authentic from the master of luxury hotel furniture.

The Omara coffee table again form Habitat looks much more expensive than the price tag suggests. Solid black veined marble slabs sit upon delicately splayed brass legs, this is one table which will make any morning coffee a much more elegant affair. Conran’s Harper velvet sofa is as close to authentic as you can get in Ochre. The velvet comes in other ‘on period’ shades such as dusty rose, merlot and avocado.
