crystalamesbury Here we have @duluxaus' 'Future Past' colour trend forecast for 2016.

The words @yellowtrace used to describe the trend is so LUSH! Hear me out - cues from Steam Punk, Analogue, Eclectic, Craftsmanship, Industrial Age, Decadent, European, Crumbling Architecture - it's like the new epic version of an old world

These shots deserve art gallery status, the longer I stare at them, the more I see and the more I feel. Amazing AMAZING work.

crystalamesbury UGH! @duluxaus they're just SO GOOOOOD! My face hurts. 'Retro Remix' is a fantastic in all ways forecast of the Memphis Movement set on fire! With inspiration drawn also from the 60's and 70's and a time where modern materials gave way to new shapes and forms. It's sassy, it's energetic, it's vibrant, it's tha sex!

crystalamesbury Another amazing colour trend forecast by @duluxaus, this one called 'Bio Fragility' This one a little softer on the eyes, with the muted blues, yellows and pinks but no less edgy! NO LESS!

crystalamesbury Wow, @duluxaus have given @yellowtrace a sneak peak of the Colour Forecast for 2016 - Design Age.

This image represents the 'Infinite Worlds' collection. I think the Beastie Boys said it best "intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic"
These colours are opulent, celestial, invigorating yet deep. Seriously sexy stuff here!

Creative Director Bree Leech, Trend Forecaster Andrea Lucena-Orr, Stylist @heathernetteking and amazing photographer @mikebakerphotographer, I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! Man how do I get in on dis!!!

crystalamesbury @heckerguthrie have done it again!

Masters in detail, let us admire their choice of colour, finish and use of restraint for the fitout of Chinese restaurant 'East' in Melbourne.

Twinkly brass lights, organic turquoise tiles accompanied with deep ocean blue accents and slick black contemporary furniture throughout. Massive doses of cool, book me a table? KThxBye! Photography by @shannonmcgrath7

crystalamesbury Just taking a moment to admire the oh so delicate colour scheme implemented at The Chef's Table at The Langham, Sydney 🍐 Normally I'm not one for super feminine schemes HOWEVER it's the contrasting use of hardwood, marble, stainless steel and brass accents that give this impressive space that edgy kick 6d

crystalamesbury Casually flicking through my current copy of @insideoutmag while on the train home and get SLAPPED IN THE FACE with the gorgeousness of @mwestonart's studio floor! Surprised the train didn't stop!

Can you SEE the inspiration just oozing out of that floor?! HOLY MOLY I want to cover my LIFE in splashes of resin!

The September 2015 issue of InsideOut is worth the cover price for Megan's interview alone. STUNNING!

crystalamesbury WOW look at DIS!!! The recently renovated 'Blue Room' at the Los Angeles Athletic Club is quite the sight to behold! Shy flowers need not apply.

Gloriously fitted out by @timothyoulton the space is loaded with super bold colour, extravagance, texture and heritage.

What an absolute dream

crystalamesbury Another gorgeous kitchen comes my way!

How bold is this black kitchen accented with dusty rose cabinets and a custom built steel and wood storage unit! I'm partial to a touch of subway tiling too.

A beautifully renovated Berlin apartment belonging to Peter Fehrentz.

Great balance in both feminine and masculine ideas don't you think?

crystalamesbury ON THE BLOG!

Trying out something new here friends. Have created a new little ditty on my blog called 'Theory Thursday' with the idea of sharing what I've learned through interior design and decoration studies that I feel has been invaluable to me since.

Am I giving away trade secrets? Nah, but I'm sharing basic colour theory in what I hope is a super easy way to understand, and then have you apply to ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU EVER DO!!! (Well, that's what happened to me) 'Sesh 1' is up now, would be nice to hear what you think! www.crystalamesbury.com

crystalamesbury There ain't NOTHIN' wrong with having someone else do the work so what's stopping you?

I can design it. I can source it. I can style it, and at the end of the day it will be a space that is completely yours.

Don't be scared.
I'm here to make you look good.
Let's talk. www.crystalamesbury.com
