Welcome to Novateur.

Inspiration for your home interior can come from anywhere. This week we popped into Sass & Bide, after swooning over a compelling shade of green that captured our hearts from the front window. It forms part of their new collection called Novateur. Inspired by their love of nature and science, this range is an ode to the curious mind and beauty of Botanist, Ernst Haeckel, who is a loved icon of the label.

Green can present the feeling of tranquility and calmness thanks its foundation colours blue and yellow. It has the ability to make you feel relaxed and yet express enough warmth that it does not leave you feeling cold.  It's connection with nature naturally associates the colour with good health and well being.

In Sass & Bide's new collection, the focus is on olive and moss.  Mix these hues with a neutral palette of black, white and timber, like teak and blackwood, to ground its presence in your space. To add a level of luxe, introduce accents of brass and antique gold for the finishing touches. Here's a few ideas we've put together.
