For a few years now beige has been seen as ‘boring’, but alas it’s back but only if you throw some textures within it. This chalet vibe has been created using wooden panelling and dark wood as the floor, the lamp to the left, the stem being made of twigs blends superbly to it’s surrounding wood. This setting would not have been the same without the fur, and cosy rug so these two key components are crucial to the fung-shui of this room.

If your planning a trip to Barcelona any time soon, I highly recommend you to check out Soho House. It’s designed beautifully adding elements of colour and textures throughout their rooms. Nothing is left untouched and the attention to detail is like no other. Exposed brickwork allows a room to automatically feel old and authentic so this is something you should not cover up. The lights look like pooky lights (a shop you should check out if you haven’t already) as they are beautifully crafted with bright shades and quirky patterns. It’s a lush environment to sit back and relax.
Hate it or love it? Pink is becoming more and more welcomed by men and becoming much less femine. A splash of pink can liven up a living space. This pink door is idillyic whereas the pink shower is more striking. It depends how naughty your willing to go. The message of this story, is to not be scared of this colour because it traditionally belongs to a sex, explore your inner girl; and ladies your husband’s won’t moan for too long!
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.
Inspiration really can come from anywhere and where you eat is no exception. Faith and Flower located in Los Angeles was designed by AvroKODesigns and shows a stunning mix of modern and 1920’s design. The fine dining experience will capture all of your senses.

Using full length curtains mixed with hanging pendant lights make the space feel opulent without being overwhelming from the incredibly high ceilings. This mixed with precise uniformity of tables and seating makes the open space feel structured and clean cut to suit its suave vibe. This restaurant has been designed to be creative and individual without being loud and startling. The mix of yellow, green and grey is not common but suits the slightly industrial theme to a T.

Most girls dream of a walk in wardrobe, draws, mirrors and lights to make any rough morning look better. To make your dream space come to life think about what else you may use this space for – like getting ready in the morning or even combining it with a study zone. Somewhere private and calm can be achieved through light colours and a more shut away space with drawers and less open storage. However, if the walk in will serve one purpose maybe have more hanging space so you can see all of your pieces for a successful and quick morning routine. Lighting can make all the difference in mood; whether you want your clothes illuminated for easy selection or you want a more muted and romantic feel. This space can be made so personal and is really one area of the house where guests don’t have to see unless you really want to show them. So be creative and make it somewhere you can get ready in style!
Scared of a red hot interior? No fear Spicer Interiors is here to change your mind about the intense shade that many ban from their home. Red can be darkening which is why it’s important to use it in the right places and in the right shades. Painting a feature wall or two in red will look eye-catching and stunning when paired with more muted tones like grey and natural materials. The danger is to use red prints as well as a red painted wall which can look very matchy matchy. For a touch of red in your space try a statement piece of furniture like these red velvet chairs used in a Parisian lounge. Both romantic and edgy, red could be the saviour to your dull interior adding spice and style.
For an eclectic and exciting interior twist for summer try adding some bohemian prints to compliment your space. Baba Souk has an amazing array of bohemian printed décor pieces in every colour under the rainbow. Although they are on the pricier end of the scale you would only need one or two to add an edgy twist to your space. The gorgeous blend of colours creates interest and a cultural spin to your interior. Small details like pompoms and more delicate prints can give the bohemian feel without being too loud, this is great for an already colourful interior. So make yourself look well-travelled and add some boho into your home, a little white lie you won’t regret!
