S is for Spring

S is for Spring

From leafy greens to emerald hues… green is the ultimate colour of harmony. We are so thrilled that the powerful green was part of the Pantone Trends list for Spring, with colours like Lime Punch, Sailor Blue and of course our favourite, Ultra Violet. If there is one colour to play with in all its possible shades, right through spring into summer, it would be green.

Allow us to introduce you to our Refreshing Spring Collection. Pedro Calderon de la Barca once said: “Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises”. We fully agree as green is truly a colour of calmness, relaxation and renewal. And what better time to renew your home than spring?

The best thing about using green in your spring home interior is that it looks good, is flattering and brings new life to your space. Darker hues paired with metallic accents adds the glossy and opulent finishes your room needs.

Although some of the pieces in our collection might seem unusual or new to you, we want to encourage you to try something new. A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there. The magic happens outside your comfort zone..

So without further adieu our Refreshing Spring Collection:

Zinio Contemporary Chair: Contemporary Chairs are an essential part of any home, and can transform your everyday space from classic to chic in a flash. This season we are spoiling you with our versatile Zinio Chair that can be used in any living space. Whether you are looking to refresh your work space, brighten your bedroom or add extra seating space in your lounge – the Zinio dressed in a spring inspired pattern will be the ultimate finishing touch.

 

Boston Classic Couch:  This Spring the Boston is certainly proving to be the seat of choice. This classic couch is a key piece if you want to play with layering and proportioning and looks great when paired with elegant and delightful scatters. The interesting design takes the piece up a notch and regardless of your space you can create an inviting ambience.

Sheko Rainbow Carpet: Texture is a big thing this season! Textiles take a playful role with lots of embellishments, raw edges and appliqué details – all irresistible to the touch. Therefore, the Sheko Rainbow Carpet with its texture detail and beautiful geometric pattern is undeniably a must have for your home decor this Spring.

Maximus Contemporary Chesterfield: Glam dark woods are on trend this Spring, and what better way to incorporate it in your home than with contemporary furniture. The Maximus Contemporary Chesterfield combines the traditional tufted chesterfield with an exposed wood back. This contemporary Chesterfield provides a new take on modern luxury and is a refreshing sight – perfect for the new season. And upholstered in our Signature Emerald Green Leather the Maximus will surely add to your delightful ambience!

Floral Art Work: As mother nature changes season, she puts the more subdued colours of winter behind her and turns to the bright colours of spring. A true delight from phenomenal artist Koos van der Lende is the beautiful portrait with a lavish red colour to bring the Spring Blossom into your home.

Spring is most certainly in the air and you can bring the new season into your home with our Refreshing Spring Collection. This spring we dare you to try something new. Be brave. Be bold. And don’t forget to share your Spring creations with us.

Dining with the entire family around your dining table can be a wonderful feast when you have the perfect Christmas table setting.  So for those looking to up their table setting game or just need some advice, there’s no better time than the festive season to step things up a notch. We have a few tips on how to create the perfect Christmas table setting that will keep the family talking till next Christmas!

Firstly, your dining room furniture is probably the most important! Having a dining set that adds an elegant ambience to your space is more appealing than old and over used furniture. Our Rochelle dining chairs in a Gazelle Taupe leather will create a delightful ambience to your space and is sure to catch the eye of everyone stepping into the room.


Secondly, your table decor is important for setting the perfect table. Traditionally, people set a Christmas table with the side plate to the left of the dinner plate. However, in modern times a layered setting very popular! Place the side plate and dessert bowl on the dinner plate, creating various layers. For a festive touch tie a bow around the plates, when your guest sit down it feel like they are opening a gift.

 

Furthermore, if you want to add a interesting touch to your Christmas table, mix and match your crockery. Use patterned side plates or plates with festive words and pictures, paired with solid colours that compliments your theme. Mixing your cutlery is also a way to bring this element to your table.

Additionally, tree decorations are not just for the big Christmas tree in your living room. A collection of Christmas baubles and other decorations can be displayed in a beautiful way and can double as your centrepiece or just adding festive touches to your dining table.

Your Christmas table setting should include candles! Candles help create the right mood anytime of day! Fairy lights are also a way to incorporate light on your dining table, it adds beautiful colours and the festive ambience.

Traditionally, people use plain colours like a crisp white either for the tablecloth or placemats. You can choose if you only want to use a tablecloth or placemat, however placing a placemat on top of a tablecloth will add t your layered effect. Don’t forget the table runner! A Table runner can make a bold statement and looks beautiful paired with the rest of the table setting.

When temperatures drop and it becomes harder to leave the house, it is wonderful to have a comfortable place to cozy-up. Don’t know where to begin when bracing your home for the winter? Use our 5 home essential guide to create the ultimate home interior to escape the chilly winter.

Soft throws

Throws are vital for a winter-ready space, they offer texture and additional warmth.You can style them any way you like, as it will bring a layered look to your interior. This winter, snuggle up with a good book or film under the comfort of one of our opulent throws.

 During the winter season, it is all about layering up and scatter cushions offer a very simple way to do this. This time of year comfort is essential, therefore mix and match different styles to create a cosy display. Use soft materials that will make your space more welcoming. Velvet and silken designs are the perfect options and will create an inviting ambience while feeling incredible.

Rugs

A luxurious rug is another must have this winter. It creates extra warmth and comfort during the cold season. Area rugs can be used as a design element in a room; they add colour and style while unifying a space. Furthermore, rugs add a layer of insulation to the floor, trapping cool air underneath and keep it from seeping up and cooling the room. The warmth of the rug will keep your feet toasty, too.

Lighting

The lighting in your home can also enhance the ambience of your space. Table lamps and ceiling lights are options, however when it comes to distinguishing your space this cold season it;s all about floor lamps. Tall, slender and elegant floor lamps in different styles, deliver light at a height to create a moody ambience.

Scented candles

In addition, candlelight is another seasonal staple and wonderful lighting option. Perfect for creating a restful atmosphere candles are a beautiful way to give your home that winter glow.

Different styles in your interior

Mixing different styles in your home interior

When we decorate our living areas we often find it difficult to choose a style for that space. With so many different styles to choose from it is understandable. From Modern to Bohemian and Industrial to more Traditional, there is something for everyone! Notably, you can give a room character and create memorable interiors by choosing furniture from different styles and eras. 

We have put together a few tips on how to mix different styles in your interior. Firstly, to successfully mix different interior styles think about creating contrasts. Play with matching hard with soft, dull with bright, square with round or wood with metal. Secondly, choose one statement/focal point piece. You can try to use a unique, classic or mid-century piece to a contemporary setting. With this setting, you will add character to your room and create an interesting overall look and flow. Furthermore, you should choose a piece that has a story, for example, a heirloom or a piece you bought on your latest trip. This will be a wonderful conversation starter, as you share the story of that piece.

You have to consider the colours that you use. When you choose a piece of furniture for your space, keep the colour tones the same for the rest of the furniture in the room for a more subtle transition. Furthermore, we think that this is a safer option when mixing styles, especially if it is something new to you. However, for those brave hearts bring a complimentary colour that will liven the space, and this will become the accent of the room.

Another wonderful way to mix styles is to mix pieces from different time periods. Furniture from different time periods have unique characteristics and history is timeless. With mixing styles the rule of “opposites attract” is true. Using opposite styles will change the ambiance of a space dramatically. Using an abstract piece of art on a wall above a vintage style sofa will look beautiful!

We recommend a Born Furniture Chesterfield paired with a contemporary chair, this combination will work wonders! The different styles from the different time periods will compliment each other beautifully as the difference will be highlighted.

Mixing different interior styles will be a wonderful decorating challenge for you to take on. Express your creativity and unleash your inner interior designer, and don’t forget to share your creations with us.
