Bringing Hockney Into The Home

David Hockney - Peter Getting Out of NIck's Pool 1966

From pastel-infused LA swimming pools to arresting colour-blocking visuals, David Hockney’s iconic style and artistic interpretations have trickled into the cultural world of design for over six decades. Celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video from the past 60 years, his latest exhibition, ‘A New Retrospective’ at the Tate Britain is his most comprehensive yet.

With homeowners becoming increasingly confident when it comes to colour, it’s no wonder that this latest exhibition from one of the most popular and influential British artists of the twentieth century is being reflected in our interior choices in 2017. Whether it’s looking at the latest Pantone colour of the year or following global trends such as ‘Hygge’, these things always find a way of influencing our interiors.

From quirky accessories to graphic colours and shapes, we are finding Hockney’s signature tonal palette and distinctive style being translated into playful and uplifting interiors in a variety of settings. Is this the end of the ever-popular and dominating trend for white and grey interiors? Maybe not, but it’s nice to see some pattern, whimsy and character coming through in the world of interior design.

Take a look at these inspirational ways on how to Hockney your home:
