Design Ideas for the Living Room

Design Ideas for the Living Room

With 2019 well and truly underway, now is a great time to think about any design projects you are hoping to achieve this year. One of the best contenders for a new design project is the living room as it is used by the whole family every day. Whether you want a complete restyle or a little refresh of your living space, there are plenty of ways to get your living room looking picture perfect.

This is great for homes on a budget. Working with a neutral background, such as greys, whites, or creams, add brightly coloured throws or patterned cushions to add a fresh zing to the room. This look is super versatile, as you can simply switch the accent pieces out when you feel like you fancy a change.

Monochrome

Black and white themes are classic, understated and glamorous all at the same time. Sticking to monochrome is a great way to bring instant chic to your living room. Paint the walls white and let the furniture do the talking.

It’s all white

Neutral décor and furniture are a timeless combination that will never go out of fashion. Layer cream linen curtains against oatmeal coloured walls, cream sofas against honey rattan and pack as many natural objects as you can into the room. Think driftwood, stone, and warm wood.

Statement pieces

Every now and again, you come across a piece of art or furniture that demands the attention of everyone in the room. In this instance, the best thing to do is to design the room around the statement piece. Take inspiration from colours in the piece to inspire the rest of the room or keep everything else neutral so that your gorgeous item can take centre stage.

Country chic

The relaxed, shabby chic look of countryside interiors are a great way to bring cosiness into your room. Stick with rustic wood, floral textiles, and exposed brick to get the country look of your dreams.

Minimalist

In the age when decluttering is king, sticking to a minimalist theme is a super easy way to make sure you don’t have to do lots of tidying every day. Stick to clean lines and contemporary finishes when it comes to furniture and keep accessories to a fuss-free minimum.

How to Bring the Industrial Look into Your Home

How to Bring the Industrial Look into Your Home

If you’re looking to update your home and you like to stay ahead of the curve, the industrial look might just be the one for you. A huge trend for 2018, industrial interiors are set to become a classic due to their robust qualities, lasting style, and wow-factor character.

If you are convinced, here are a few ways that you can bring this look into your home without breaking the bank.

Exposed Brick 

One of the key factors in creating this look is having stripped back materials with the bare minimum of finishing. Rip back the plaster to reveal the beautiful brickwork underneath or if you are not so lucky, there are plenty of veneer options for a more temporary solution.

Weathered Wood 

From the dining table to the floorboards, wood needs to be seriously weathered for the perfect industrial look. For a subtler approach, use weathered frames for pictures or a distressed look on the bannisters.

Metal Lighting 

From exposed cables to robust, metal lampshades, lighting is a key component of this interior design trend. Whether you opt for cast iron bulb cages or aluminium downlighters, lighting is a quick and easy way to bring this trend into your home. Simply hang a bulb over the dining table or add an industrial lamp to the corner of the room.

Polished Concrete 

There was a time when concrete was just seen as a functional building material, however, these days it has so many more uses. Polished concrete gives the perfect industrial look while providing a durable, robust, and gorgeous floor. Just makes sure to invest in a few decent rugs for those cold winter mornings.

Go Grey 

Think of a factory and you most likely think of the colour grey. Using a palette of different greys it is possible to make a room look industrial but chic at the same time. Just contrast with weathered wood and metal fixtures and fittings and you will have the perfect industrial look!

Autumn/Winter 2017 Interior Trends

Autumn/Winter 2017 Interior Trends

Now that Autumn is in full swing it’s time to start getting our homes ready for the colder months. After all, spending time in the cosy warmth of your home is the best way to spend the dark, wintery evenings! 

There are plenty of exciting trends to take note of this season, particularly:

Teal
Since Pantone made green the shade of 2017, there has been a wide range of variations on the colour, with teal and peacock blue being no exception. Perfect for bringing a jewel-toned elegance to any room, teal is an extremely versatile colour that can be easily mixed and matched with other shades on the spectrum or clashed with opposite colours to create a more dramatic finish. We love the teal shade of the Alstons Camden sofa, perfect for bringing this elegant trend into your home. 

Metallics
You would have to be living under a rock to not have noticed the impact that copper and rose gold finishes have had over the last year or so, and this trend is set to continue into the winter. Think metallic lighting, cushions, and vases.

Big Knits
Nothing says comfy more than an oversized knitted blanket, so make the most of the big knit trend by creating your own chunky cable knit blanket or pouffe cover.

Fireplaces
Winter means spending a lot more time in front of the fire, so why not take inspiration from this season’s trend and glam your fireplace up with a fancy new guard.

 

Statement Chairs
One of the best things about this trend is that if you make the right choice, it will become a classic which will last through many future fashion fads. Think timeless design with a twist, such as a classic armchair in a bright geometric print.
