Here at Walls and Floors, we’ve just launched our 4 interior trends for 2018! This is an introduction to trend number three, Memory Lane, where we’ll tell you a bit about the trend, and how to achieve it in your home.


An explanation of Memory Lane

Our exclusive designer Louisa Charlotte explains the trend: ‘Sentimental and welcoming, Memory Lane evokes a depth of hidden nostalgia. Soft, calming colour palettes favour subtle textures to gift traditional shapes with a relaxed feel. Fond memories of yesteryear are heightened whilst vintage references generate a personal touch; Let your home tell your story.’

In other words, it’s all about creating a charming vintage look in your home, drawing from the styles of yesteryear.

On the floor, our Vintage Wood Plank Tiles give the illusion of age, which adds character. The tub, sink and toilet all have charming period styling, which is ideal for strengthening the vintage Memory Lane look.
