Café Trends to Inspire Your Home

Cafés are often the most inviting and comfortable spaces to be in. The energy created by the interior is what makes you want to sit there for hours and order one (or two) more coffees. By taking the elements and design trends from cafés, you can make your home just like the cafés you want to sit in all day.

Beautiful natural lighting, elegant brass accents, styled greenery, bold furniture and all around good vibes are just a few features of The Kettle Black that you can take inspiration from for your home.

  • Balance your space with details by bringing in a brass accent above your natural eyesight e.g. pendant lighting, with a complimentary accent below your natural eyesight e.g. wireframe chair legs.
  • Find some pots you love or acquire lots of different white pots and fill them with a mixture of beautiful succulents and plants to display in your home.
  • Don’t be afraid to be bold with your seating. Bring colour into the space through a colourful armchair or set of chairs around your dining table to finish off your space.

Featured on The Best Café Design 2016 Shortlist, Petition Kitchen in Perth is the perfect spot to sit with a good book or your laptop for the day amongst the stylish, inspiring decor.

  • Repetition is what makes this space so calm. Take inspiration from the stream of pendant lights above the table, the rows of similar chairs and the glassware and crockery on display on the open shelving.
  • Placing different coloured chairs around a table is a simple way to create interest in the space without being too distracting.
  • Open shelving in a contrasting colour also provides interest to your space, and with thoughtful styling of your glassware and crockery your kitchen will be beautiful.

Blackwood Pantry, which also features on The Best Café Design 2016 Shortlist, has shown us that we no longer need to be afraid of using colour! With timber finishes and chic black and white elements throughout the space, being bold with colour can really add character to your space.

  • Colourful tiles in a simple geometric pattern in contrast to white tiles in the same pattern will bring colour into your space while also providing a calming rhythm.
  • Floor to ceiling curtains are another great way to bring colour into your space!
  • Finally, black fixtures and fittings will not only contrast the space but will also make them stand out and become a feature, so keep them sleek and stylish.
