Weekend activity!

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Get stuck into making pieces for your home on the weekend or when you have free time. You can either buy ready-made stickers or paint murals and designs yourself. Remember to use special paint that won’t come off easily. They look quirky, fun yet also personal. So get creative this weekend and add personalise your furniture.

The magic of movement

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

All it takes is movement, the right move. Redecorating is a way of expressing yourself, releasing your inner creativity. And the magic of movement is just the same. You can incorporate that ‘brand new/grand’ feel without purchasing up to the minute interior goods. All it takes is a little move… The dynamic of your whole entire space can change within hours, even minutes.

Why don’t you begin with large furniture and then play around with your accessories? Let’s start with the sofa & coffee table for example; moving it from one end of the room to the other will instantly alter your area.

Place the flower vase you’ve had sitting on your dining table in the centre of your marble fireplace. The reflection of the vase and flowers in your Zagora mirror will make everything feel and look extremely effective.

Understand the magic of moment and inject more life into your home without spending a dime.

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.

Mixing mid century

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Midcentury style is all the rage in the interior design world this year. The sleek and simple styles look great on their own or mixed with older and newer styles, perfect for an instant uplift! Popularity of this style has meant you can access this style at any price range (so no excuses). Made.com sells a huge range of larger furniture pieces but even Primark can give you a cheap solution to this style. We love the mid-century lounging chairs to add comfort and style to any corner of your home. Cover with a pillow or two, as any interior lover would, and this will become the most fashionable place to relax. Leaving raw wood exposed or a quick lick of paint will personalize these pieces to suit your own style.

 

DIY concrete plant pots

Uncategorized

To prevent plants from falling through, squish or glue (concrete adhesive) wire mesh/chicken wire into bottom of the cinder block holes. This would look great in a small city garden, adding an accent colour of red to your dull outdoor space. This is contemporary and modern and ideal to use as a table.

When art comes before interiors

Uncategorized

When moving house, art and collectables are usually the only items that get transferred from place to place.  So I will give you an example of a piece of art that resembles the design of the room.

This piece of art is contemporary and clearly photoshopped to include nature and forestry. Below is a room that is parallel to this piece of art and designed on this singular photograph.

The spotted wall highlights the hidden forest within the image and the use of whites, greys and blacks are prominent within this setting. Take note of the linear lines of the hand in the photo and then again on the ceiling. The texture from the rug, sofa and the wooden seat are all seen within the hand of the image as branches bend and curl making it look 3D.
