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.

Bathroom quirks

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Doesn’t this Moroccan bathroom look divine?!! A simple yet effective construction around a bath, complete with a shower is an exquisite look. I gather they painted the surrounding grey concrete white to give a nice frame around the bath. Isn’t this what all sunday’s are made of? Bathing and wishing to bathe?!

Inked up

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

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.

Full on Quirk

interior design, Uncategorized
To quirk or not to quirk? That is the question. Are we the only ones who have noticed how everyone is eager to be unique? Well… this isn’t only based on personalities, we all want our spaces to be authentic too.
Many want that striking interior without having to fork out millions. We believe a great way to step into ‘full on quirk’ is by up-cycling or investing in a local up-cycler.
Revamping your old furniture is simply a way of stepping from the old to the new. It also gives you the opportunity to display your inner creativity.
You’d be surprised at how much your space can change after a little touch. The up-cycling trend is forever growing! The simple things will transform your home from that basic ‘Zara Home’ house to a ‘Full on quirk’ palace.
Have your kitchen cabinets sprayed in a snazzy gloss or you could easily change your knobs and handles. Why not change the top on that IKEA dining table and have a beautiful Carrera finish. Your space will literally go from bland to grand!

Uncovering Cycle

interior design, Uncategorized

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!

 

Bring the inside out

interior design, Uncategorized

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.

 

Trend Alert- Marble everything!

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.

This quirky little number was found in Thailand! The wood carving and creativity is superb. What a fun way to sit at a bar with friends. We need to think more out of the box, theres too many rectangular shapes these days; let’s go back to basics and start ripping things out of the wood work….
