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.

born furniture hue knew blog interior decor colour combination

Hue knew?

Colourful interior decor for your home

Changing the color of your interior decor can not only have an impact on how you feel about your home, but on its value, too. Choosing a combination of hues that’s beautiful and pleasing to the eye is an entirely different task altogether. If you’ve been stymied about what home decor colors to choose, consider some of our colour combinations.

 

We now everyone has a favourite colour, whether it’s nature-inspired blue, passionate purple or vibrant yellow. Furthermore, it is most likely that you have a tonal preference too. This can include anything from brights to muted or pastel hues. Whatever your interior style is, here are some ways in which you can use different colours.


Firstly, we suggest you use the colour blue. Blue ranks so high as a favorite colour that you won’t go wrong if you use this versatile colour. Furthermore, blue enhances the peaceful ambience of your space to create the perfect place to relax. A blue chesterfield is an excellent way to incorporate blue to your space. Therefore, we recommend a Mozart Chesterfield in our Signature Oceano Blue leather. Notably, when you combine blue with another colour it creates a more creative effect.

 

We also suggest different hues of yellow. Yellow is associated with happiness and positivity and will be a delightful colour to use for your home’s interior as it will add to you joyful ambience. However, using too much yellow in your interior is not a good idea. Therefore, rather use smaller pieces of furniture or small decorating items that will make the space feel fresh and inviting. 

 

Perhaps best known as the colour of royalty, purple is truly significant! Purple can be a daunting colour to consider however, in all its hues it can be lovely and even sophisticated. Adding pops of purple hues in the form of furniture is a wonderful idea, we suggest a Born Wingback in our Royale Purple leather. Another way to add hues of purple is by using rugs, it can be used around the house without any effort.

 

Want a colourful, happy and full of energy space? We recommend using green for your home decor. The hue is the colour of live as it is associated with growth and rejuvenation. Incorporate the positive energy from green in your home with a Born Signature Emerald Green Leather sofa.  

 

Color choices are highly subjective, and when it comes to decorating your home, you need to do what feels right to you. Similarly, it is just as important to choose the right colour combinations. As we discussed a peace enhancing blue, vibrant yellow, royal purple and lushes green we suggest that you pair these colours together. A space with natural hues of blue paired with yellow or green is a wonderful combination just as rich purple and green hues work perfectly together. Have a look at some of our colourful inspirations.

  

Whatever colour combination you choose for your home’s interior make sure that it will compliment your space and showcase your personality! As interior designer Nate Berkus stated “Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of things you love.

Have fun redecorating! Don’t forget to share your ideas and inspirations with us.

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.

Walls

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

 Textiles

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. Born Furniture Home decor interior design interior decor pantone greenery

 Furniture

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.

Renewed home interior

Out with the old and in with the new

Out with the old in with the new

The new year is an excellent time to change some aspects of your life. Focusing on a new approach to life can be beneficial to you. However, changing your life can be difficult if you are stuck in the same routine and habits. Allowing yourself to embrace your new approach to life will be difficult if you are in the same environment. Embracing the new chapter in your life means letting go and adjusting. There will be no point in renewing your life if your living space is just going to stay the same. Changing your home and office space can help with your renewed life.

Firstly, your home is the space you spend most of your time meaning you have to use this as a starting point. Start off by upgrading your furniture with something different like a wonderful Chesterfield sofa. The different style in your home can be a wonderful addition to your home, not just as a stylish piece of furniture but as a reminder of your new life approach. In addition, change the artwork in your space, a new piece will help embrace the new way of living. We at Born Furniture suggests a De Lende paired with your Chesterfield. One of De Lende’s fine-art photographs can take your room to the next level as a decor piece.

In addition, you can move around furniture in your home, for example, an old cabinet from your bedroom to your dining room. Alternatively, you can be bold and repurpose a room in your home create a home office or a guest room for the new opportunities in your life.

Your workspace should be an area to be creative and productive. With regards to your new way of life, you should transform your office to align with your renewed life. Hang pictures, mottos and images that symbolize what you want to accomplish. Furthermore, choose office furniture and accessories that portrait your renewed life approach. You should spend time equipping your working space better by creating a calming and protective atmosphere and allow your renewed life energy to flow in your space. Create this working space for yourself and you are sure to live your new approach to the fullest.

Change is good! And an “out with the old and in with the new” approach is an excellent way to life a renewed life.
