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.

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.
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.

Imagine having this on your bedroom ceiling as a kid. This is what dreams are made out of, literally… His work is a whole new level of wavey garms. I actually believe that the new thing is having flooring on your ceiling.
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.
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.
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.
Okko hotel in Nantes, France has had a radical re-design by designer Patrick Norguet. The small rooms needed uplifting and modernising to reach their full potential. Norguet has used an on trend and modern theme throughout the rooms and made each unique with their own colour palette. The white base makes the rooms light and feel more spacious with the colour coming through from geometric shapes and accessories. Colour blocking also features heavily but instead of using opposite colours Patrick Norguet has used shades from the same colour for a more relaxed feel. This simple yet stylish design won’t go out of fashion any time soon and will suite each guest that walks through the door. Adding large mirrors and staying away from solid walls the rooms become a Tardis for design. Check back soon for some inspiration of how to re-create this look for your interior!
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.
