This is a typical bachelor pad! Wooden floors and studio-styled place is a perfect way to explore your masculinity. Doing projects like these are actually my favourite. There’s so much to play with. But the simplicity in having a bed just on the ground makes this space feel comfortable and relaxed. The shimmery wooden floors complete this glossy look and make it that much smarter. Without the shine, I feel as though this could look grungy and rustic, more like an artisan’s studio. Electric curtains and windows finish this place off giving it a modern touch. What a beauty this is. Inspiration taken to the max. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Get stuck into making pieces for your home on the weekend or when you have free time. You can either buy ready-made stickers or paint murals and designs yourself. Remember to use special paint that won’t come off easily. They look quirky, fun yet also personal. So get creative this weekend and add personalise your furniture.
Tattoos have always been a thing, but here’s now to inking on walls.
Who says this cannot be done? You can buy wallpaper paste or just put off-white/grey wallpaper on the walls and ink it yourself. It may take some time but a bit of DIY won’t harm anyone. Having it in a bedroom would look really stylish. Perhaps pink for a baby girl’s bedroom? Just throwing around some ideas and thoughts to ponder on. This is a tattoo you will never regret.
From geometric to classic, Cole and Son has the entire spectrum of design covered in their wallpaper archives. Founded in 1875 this British firm has heritage and royalty linked to its name. Cole and Son have done so well at staying modern and current, not succumbing to the old fuddy duddy prints they could easily produce over and over again. Their most recent collection – Curio – shows beautiful metallics in classic styles to add a modern twist. Splurging on a few rolls of Cole and Sons masterful designs would set your interior off effortlessly and create a talking point for all that enter. Whether it’s a cult favourite like the Woods print or a fresh new design like Zebrawood, your interior will benefit from a touch of this timeless company.
Scared of a whole room covered in wallpaper? Sit down, take a drink and consider a wall mural for your interior. Large paintings straight onto the wall make a statement and really show off personality in whatever room they are placed. Popular examples of this are large floral patterns but anything can be chosen to be suited to the space and the owner. Having the mural cross over two walls will keep eyes moving around the room instead of sticking to one statement wall. Feeling more at ease? Check out these examples below to see how much impact you can make with your own interior mural.
Sustainability in interior design can come in many forms. A common and accessible way to make the planet that little bit healthier is to upcycle your old furniture instead of throwing away and buying brand new pieces. There are many ways this can be done such as adding new nobs to old drawers or repainting into a shabby chic style! Annie Sloan has some of the widest ranges of chalk paint on the market which can fix you up with colour to your hearts content. So throw on some overalls and get your hands dirty to make your own furniture one of a kind!
Switch it up this summer and take design outside! Making the most of your outdoor space will make those long warm evenings that little bit more special. Adding patterned cushions, throws and dining accessories will give a bohemian feel which would compliment any exterior space. Using a mis mash of new and found furniture, it will bring the look together and will be easy to add new pieces as the seasons change. Try these beautiful printed cushions from H&M Home for an instant outdoor facelift or push it further with up-cycled tables and chairs.
It’s great to see combinations of colour that match and these photos help with inspiration :). One does not need to be conventional when matching colours around a room… From artwork to pillows, to valences and curtain trimmings; the choice is endless but luckily your the person who can choose.
This studio belongs to Daya Daya, a jewellery company who also live in their own studio. This means that creatively they’re always thinking and working. This environment is also great for friends, but obviously more importantly a great space to work in. They have a small kitchen next to the shower space that has tweed curtains for privacy. As of yet they have still managed to keep going without an oven although this is something they plan to install. Four people live in this space with a bedroom over looking the studio. Projectors hang from the ceiling for prime watching in the evenings. This studio has been built and designed by the designers themselves so well done. This is a great hideout.
