Interior Design: Creating Style with the Perfect Ottoman


With the ancient Egyptian origins, ottomans or footstools are a fantastically versatile piece of furniture, adding stylish storage and extra seating to any kind of living room.  Creating a strong focal point, ottomans are a great addition to a comfy sofa, giving you somewhere to put up your feet after a long day. If you’re on the hunt for a perfect footstool, check out these tips to help you make the right decision;

 

Carnaby Ottoman

Bold Fabrics

Using colourful, bold patterns such as this will help to break up any monochromatic elements of a room, adding a splash of colour and personality. This is a fantastic way to experiment with colour, coordinate with cushions and curtains to tie it in with the rest of your décor.

Convenient Castors

Footstools with castors are great for manoeuvrability, making them ideal for use as both a footrest and seating. The wheels add an extra element of convenience which means they would suit anyone with limited movement. The traditional plaid fabric on this Alstons Vermont ottoman would look perfect against sofas of a similar colour palette, also available in other fabrics.

 

 



Stressless Double Ottoman With Table

Modern Innovation

One great thing about design is how it continues to change and adapt with the times. This ottoman offers a simple solution to those with limited space by combining a footstool and a table – with the added bonus of storage. Finished in high quality leather, this great design would add style and convenience to any living room.

Storage Solutions  

Of course, footstools are fab for putting your feet up at the end of the day – but they are also excellent for covert storage! If your living room is lacking on stowing space, go for an ottoman with hidden room so you can tidy away toys, remote controls, blankets etc.

How You Can Help Others This Christmas


 

So 2016 might not have been the best year, but the holiday season is a great time to reflect on the good things that have happened and to give back a little something to the community. Offering some of your time to a charity really gets you in to the Christmas spirit and helps those less fortunate out at a difficult time of the year. If you want to do something great this Christmas, check out our top tips for ways you can help in Weston-super-Mare;

Feed a Family

With record numbers of families relying on food banks to get them through tough times, making donations to your local food bank could make a huge difference to someone’s Christmas Day. Donate food, money or your time to help keep needy families fed this season. Get in touch with the Weston-super-Mare Food Bank to find out more.

Befriend an Elderly Person

With an estimated 500,000 elderly people spending Christmas alone this year, a little of your time could go a long way towards making someone feel less lonely. Get matched with an elderly person in your area and visit them for a catch up or help them out around the home. The Royal Voluntary Service is looking for volunteers in Weston-super-Mare who would like to make new friends and enrich the lives of older people, contact them to find out more.

Walk a Dog

Animal shelters tend to get overrun at Christmas time and could always benefit from helping hands to look after the animals. Take a rescue dog for some exercise, or donate food, blankets and toys to rescue centres such as Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary.

Help the Homeless

Getting involved in a soup kitchen is a great way to give help to those in need of shelter and food. Comfort at Christmas is a soup kitchen operating from St Pauls Church on Walliscote Road with the aim of providing warmth and food to anyone seeking respite from the cold.

We hope you are looking forward to Christmas!
