Coppa in Kitchens

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Copper is usually seen in lampshades, or crockery, or even a bath, but it never usually features in kitchens. These two photos are prime examples of why copper is such a great material to use. It bounces light like no other but also it’s easy to clean, modern and gives a room a sense of style. I love the way they have used copper pipes to hang their crockery on a truly inspirational setting. Funnily enough this metal is one of the only metals that is warm, steel and aluminium are terribly cold materials.

Raising the bar

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Are we the only ones totally in love with Bar Carts at the moment? Especially Brass Bars! There’s just something about the timeless elegance they bring to the table.

A snazzy Bar Cart to top off the look in your lounge is a must have. Whether you’re into collecting the finest of Whiskies or simply a Champagne on occasion kind of person; there’s a sense of 1950’s glam a Bar Cart introduces which every space desires.

Now that we’re approaching the festive season it’s not only time to jazz up your guest rooms, it’s time to enhance every corner of your space from the kitchen to… Well… The Bar Cart.

This season is all about the stand-out pieces.

Referring back to our ‘The magic of movement’ post – you really do not have to refurbish your whole entire space. You can simply elevate the stories in your space by making small alterations.

Ok, so we’re going a little off topic now. Spice up that Bar Cart if you’ve already got one. If you don’t; Raise the Bar and get your purchase on!

Have a look at West Elms Carts, they have a fantastic selection and believe it or not, IKEA also have pretty cool Bar Carts…Yep, we said it IKEA!

Brassy notes

interior design, Uncategorized

Copper may have stolen centre stage for the metallic this season but brass is coming in close behind with a cheaper and long wearing solution. Brass mixes really well with whites and natural materials such as wool and copper which is easy to find and add to any interior. The minimal trend lends itself extremely well to brass as delicate furniture below shows. Smaller details as with any trend can be added into an existing styled room such as frames and lighting whereas if you are on the hunt for a more substantial piece why not add some statements like these gorgeous taps for an updated kitchen. Brass can come in many finishes so try your hand at rustic, chic or a mish mash of both for a stylish and modern interior.

Metro tiles are THE best and easiest way to update a tired bathroom. Such a simple change in tiling can make the room look more modern and stylish. Being so popular has meant that metro tiles are available in almost all tile outlets and can fit any price range.

This style of tile has become the new classic and will be sticking around for years to come so take the plunge and go mad for metro.

 

3 ways to define

interior design, Uncategorized

We said we’d be back with some tips for an open plan interior and here we are sharing 3 top ways to section what could be a muddled space.

1. Rugs: The classic way to separate a space is to use rugs to indicate the living area and/or dining area. Rugs are cosy under the feet and also buffer any loud noises which can be handy in such an open and often large room.

2. Corner Sofa’s: Corner sofas are not just made for the corner so don’t restrict them to that space! Using them further out in a room provides a shorter divide than a wall and still leaves the space feeling open. If the back of your sofa isn’t at its heyday, why not add a side table to the back or get it reupholstered.

3. Kitchen Island: Having a kitchen island is many house owners dream and it’s also a great way to show a distinction as to where the kitchen ends. This can provide an easy transition into a dining area or work space. If a built in island is out of reach, try an island on wheels or a butchers block that can also be moved to accommodate the use of the space.

interior design, Uncategorized
Any avid Instagrammer will have noticed the influx of marble interiors and styling shots. The natural material has fast become one of the most stylish features for any interior, bringing a cool and sophisticated feel. Marble can be expensive when used in large quantities but if its just a small touch of style you want to add to your space, why not try smaller items such as pots or coasters.

A working studio

Uncategorized

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.
