Scandi Vibes

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

By placing greenery or even white washing the walls,  your pad can transform into the new-aged Scandinavian metropolis. Everything is minimal and  rugged by using mixed natural materials such as wood and fur. Be closer to the earth by having just a mattress on the floor. These people that suit these living arrangements are relaxed, happy beings, so if this is something you feel is missing form your life, it’s time to have a re-deisgn.

Beige is back

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

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.



Crushing on armchairs

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

What an armchair can do to a space is absolutely incredible. You can literally go from having the most basic pad to a space filled with character, simply from the purchase of an armchair.

If furniture could talk, an armchair would say ‘I like to stand alone’. This particular piece doesn’t need to match your sofa and footstool. There are no design rules.

The proud piece enjoys standing out and being dissimilar. Look at it like this… Your armchair is the icing on the cake, the piece that you can go totally bonkers with.

The options are limitless these days. You can have a chair covered in such amazing fabrics like Sumptuous velvet or have an old chair upholstered in a sentimental fabric.

Everyone needs a good armchair, it’s a must!

Take a look at Jonathan Adler or Graham & Greens current range. Ohh and Prêt A Vivre also have breathtaking fabrics, perfect for upholstering.

Autumn inspiration!

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

As summer winds down, the evening get darker and the purpose of you home changes. No longer are doors flung open with friends mingling between the kitchen and garden. Time to cosy up in the warm and relax! Transitioning your interior is easy and can come at any price point you desire. Throws are great as an aesthetic but are much nicer wrapped around yourself with a cup of coffee in hand. Maybe try tartan … Tartan always makes a triumphant return in the fall season both in interiors and fashion. Choosing more unusual blends like the ones below will add warmth and a lightness that can be lost in the darker evenings.  Candles, a leaf wreath or two and some sprayed pumpkins from Halloween are so simple to come by and will leave your home feeling as autumnal and the changing leaves outside.

Tom Dixon’s Private Party

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

One Tuesday night, Spicer Interiors was lucky enough to have been invited to Tom Dixon’s private launch party with cocktails and canopies being handed round as though it were out of fashion. From beginning to end, this zone was filled with aspiring Designers who got given freebies and one of Tom Dixon’s candle holder as a goodbye gift.

Aside from these bonus features, his work proudly stood under a sequence of arches. He had advised a ‘setting’ in each cave in the Portobello Dock ie. a dining room, living room, and other features he wanted to highlight. His intricacy is totally fabulous. I love the way he incorporates metals and oils which touches on very deep environmental issues that we have today. Sphere8 were very clever combining their talents with Tom Dixon as they created the floors in each setting and throughout the dock space. They focus on resin floorings that are eco-friendly and have a seamless shine.

Tom Dixon sells a broad range of items such as tables, lamps, candles, chairs, but it was the lighting that stood out mostly for me. He uses metallics and other materials such as wax and oils that shimmer when light reflects and is soothing to be around. His work will instantly lift ones rooms’ aesthetic. Whether you opt for a splash of shimmer or floor-to-ceiling lustre, these pieces will ensure your interiors shine with style; he’s one to watch.

Sheer Delight


No longer confined to nets and yellowing fabrics, sheers have come back to allow light and privacy within your home. Layering these with heavier curtains gives you options depending on season and mood. Using heavier curtains on top will help stop drafts and keep the warmth in during the colder months as well as giving you pitch black when needed. Lighter curtains during the summer will allow more air flow and let you see the morning sun to wake up a little more slowly to. Whether its half height, loose hanging or layering sheers are certain to bring more texture and depth into your interior. Colours, styles and sizes can all be personalised to fit to the style of the room. Pricing wise, it’s up to you! Ranging from £14.99 in H&M to over £100 in Ada and Ina the ball really is in your court when deciding on your new accessory.

Early autumnal furs

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Although autumn doesn’t officially start until September 22nd we are already dreaming of fall décor over here! So hold off on the leaf wreaths and pumpkin candles for a little while but do indulge in some fury comforts for the beginning of the new season. Synthetic fur accessories can come in a wide variety of price ranges depending on the authenticity ad scale but there’s something for everyone. To add to a cosy corner why not try put some fluffy pillows and a throw to snuggle into on the cold evenings. For a bolder statement try covering a chair with fur and exposing some of the framework for a Scandinavian twist. Fur works well with a whole host of trends including many we have mentioned on the blog before! So check out some our previous posts on copper, exposed wood and many other styles for some early autumn inspiration.
