Decorating with Greenery

Home decorating with the Pantone of the year: Greenery

The Pantone colour of the year is a significant element for any interior designer. As it happens Pantone has announced the 2017 colour of the year, this year we move away from the warming pastels to a zesty neon colour. Greenery is the colour of the year and we can’t express our excitement!

The colour is described by Pantone as a “fresh, yellowish hue that symbolises the reawakening of nature in spring and is a symbol for a new beginning.” However, there is a much deeper meaning to Greenery. It is a symbol of the rapidly increasing desire for a new hope in a complex social and political environment. Furthermore, it symbolises our growing desire for a renewed connection and unity with nature and our fellow human beings.
Using this zesty colour can be daunting however we are here to help you blend it into your home’s interior. Let’s have a look at some of the ways you can blend the colour into your interior.


Incorporating Greenery can easily be done by creating an accent wall. In whatever room you decided to create the accent wall it will be eye catching. The wall can either be painted or covered with wallpapers with patterns or just the new trendy shade.

A Greenery accent wall is a trendy way to make a statement


For those people that don’t want to make serious changes, you can incorporate greenery colour textiles to your decor. The bedding, blankets, curtains, scatter cushions, throws, rugs and upholstery will make your interior stylish and bold. However, the colour is very eye catching and using too much of it not a good idea. Less is more in this case. 

Different greenery coloured patterns are wonderful to make a bold statement


Furniture is another wonderful idea to incorporate Greenery in your home. With furniture you have a wide range of possible pieces and styles to choose from; chairs, sofas, ottomans and even headboards can be used. Use some accessories or artwork to echo with the bold colour furniture. A wonderful piece of furniture to incorporate in your home is the London Chesterfield Sofa. Master crafted to perfection and upholstered with 100% genuine leather the London in our Born Signature Green Leather is sure to add a touch of elegance to your space and it will create a marvelous focal point in your space.



In addition to the ways you can incorporate the colour in your home, Greenery shades looks wonderful paired with neutral colours. Pairing Greenery with neutral colours will be very eye-catching. On the other hand it can also be used in unexpectedly colourful ambiences, like hot pink, navy, black, blue will create a bold statement. Therefore, Greenery can be paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels and even metallics.



 Greenery in and around your home


These are only a few ways that you can use to bring in Greenery to your space. Using Greenery in your home will create an ambience of a renewed life and will add a touch of renewed energy in your home. Having just the right combination of Greenery in your home will make your friends and family green with envy. Have fun redecorating and don’t forget to share your creations with us.

how to make your bedroom your sanctuary

How to make your bedroom your sanctuary

Your bedroom sanctuary

Your bedroom should be more than just a place to sleep. It should be your sanctuary, the place you go to at the end of the day to relax and unwind. Don’t you agree?

The first step to a peaceful room is to de-clutter. Keep the area around your bed organised and clean, and avoid unwanted distractions. Furthermore, one of the toughest things to do is to remove any and all digital devices from your room. However, this is a crucial part to create your bedroom sanctuary as these devices gives off a stream of sleep disturbing lights. Use old school alarm clock to wake you up and a good book.

Headboards are some of the latest trends for 2017. Upholstered headboards add layers of texture and it is the most comfortable type of sitting up in bed. Your bedroom sanctuary will be comfortable and stylish at the same time with one of these headboards.

Storage space can be a problem in your bedroom, a bench with a storage unit can be a stylish solution for you. Place a bench at the foot of your bed, it will help pull the room together and in addition, will provide an extra seat.

Furthermore, smaller pieces like throws can be used to create a cozy element of happiness to your bedroom. Likewise, a rug can also be used to add to the cozy ambience as it will be a comfortable spot for your feet to land when you climb of your bed.

Painting your walls with a soothing colour can help create your calming sanctuary. Restful hues in shades of light blues and greens, gray or white will be the perfect addition in your space for a good night’s rest.

Having your own sanctuary is essential and the perfect way to relax and spend some quality alone time. Share your bedroom sanctuary ideas with us.

using your space properly utilising space using space

Love your space

Using your space properly

Creating the perfect living area that is comfortable yet stylish is not a difficult task. However, a living space that is perfectly laid out, comfortable, have enough storage space and is pleasing to the eye, now that sounds hard to accomplish. Luckily, we as Born Furniture is here to show you how easy it can be to use your space properly.


You have to find the right balance in your space, you have to consider the colour you use, the lighting and the design. Colour has everything to do with the ambiance in a room. Choosing the colour for a room is based on the mood you want and how well the light supports that illusion. Using light colours will open a room and create a sense of space and dark colours contract a space. Therefore, use colours that suit your space.


Furthermore, create harmony in your space by considering balance and proportion. Balance the elements in your space, for instance if you have large pieces of artwork on a wall, pair it with a floor lamp on the opposite wall. The proportion of your furniture also should be considered.


Whether you are planning your living space for a new home or just want to change things up a bit, you have to understand the scale of furniture and its relationship to the room. Understanding this can help you create a comfortable and functional space. We can also advise you on the size of your furniture when we help you choose the right pieces for your room

Keep in mind the proportions of your furniture you want it to coordinate with the proportions of the room. Bulky and overstuffed furniture are overwhelmingly comfortable, however if your space is small large furniture will let your space seem overcrowded. Likewise, if your space is large and you use small-scale furniture the furniture will fade in the room. Therefore, use furniture that will suite your space.


Frequently used in most households are sofas. Buy a good-quality sofa that is durable, comfortable and maintains its look. Using a sofa in your living space will vary due to your personal requirements. If you want two sofas and have a large space go for it, if you have a small space and want to use a sofa have a look at all your options. In a small space a sofa can seem quite overpowering as it takes most of your space, and it overs minimal seating. Therefore, use a sofa that fits your space. However, if you struggle to find a sofa suited for you consider love seats, they are lovely small pieces of furniture providing enough extra seating space. Another option is to use a Chaise or a window seat.


To provide extra seating in your space you can add occasional chairs to your space. Additionally, ottomans can also be used. A wonderful advantage of an ottoman is to multi-purpose use, the ottoman provides extra seating, can be used as a table and can be easily stored away once it is no longer needed. In addition it also carries aesthetic value that serves.

In most homes there is always a shortage of storage space. You can either choose to create more storage space or you can buy furniture with a multi purpose. Firstly, you can create more storage space by use the space between the tops of furniture and the ceiling with hanging or high-mounted elements, for example, space above the stove can be filled with kitchen cabinets for extra storage space. Furthermore, you can also build shelves in the open areas in your home or use the space under your staircase as storage units.


Secondly, there is a large variety of multi purpose furniture like a storage unit that can function as an ottoman or table. Another alternative is furniture that can be a sofa by day and a bed by night. 


Have some open spaces that you have no idea what to do with? You can fill the space by creating a personal space to relax. Place a comfortable chair in a corner that can be used as extra seating for guests or a reading corner for you to relax in. High-back chairs are perfect for corners, the height of the chairs fills open spaces effortlessly. Another possible solution is to use a table, the table can be used as a desk as well. This will give the space an elegant and calm ambience. As creators of empowering furniture, Born Furniture can manufacture any item according to your required measurements, so filling those empty spaces can be done effortlessly.
