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.
Sydney based Luchetti Krelle endeavours to offer a total concept; this includes branding and identity design, customised furniture and fitting design, salvaging and appropriation and even sourcing site locations. The result is unique and customised spaces that respond to client briefs and anticipate future trends whilst acknowledging current international design styles.
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.
In the heart of Bali lies a beautiful resort that has been designed using a huge range of woods such as bamboo and wicker. Put a flame to it as you really will see colour, but thankfully we don’t need too as this place already has colour that resinates deep into the wood.
If your planning a trip to Barcelona any time soon, I highly recommend you to check out Soho House. It’s designed beautifully adding elements of colour and textures throughout their rooms. Nothing is left untouched and the attention to detail is like no other. Exposed brickwork allows a room to automatically feel old and authentic so this is something you should not cover up. The lights look like pooky lights (a shop you should check out if you haven’t already) as they are beautifully crafted with bright shades and quirky patterns. It’s a lush environment to sit back and relax.
Layer layer layer! Autumn is here and as well as piling on the layers of clothes you may want to add some cosy layers to your interior. Getting warm in this season goes brilliantly with the boho trend with no need to worry about clashing or being too precious about your placement. Layering textures and patterns will add dimension and interest to any room you choose. Think fur, knit and rustic woods to decorate your space. The natural textures will give an organic yet modern feel and you’ll be bang on trend for autumn/winter 2016.
With many creatives off to university this month it’s a great time to look at creative spaces which will make the ideas flow. Having a section of any room you desire dedicated to creativity and personal exploration is so important to escape to and indulge yourself in your passions. Some great ways to keep this space organised (especially if you are a stationary hoarder like me) is to have lots of boxes and hidden spaces to make your chaos a little bit more manageable. I love the first image below which has reclaimed wooden shelves and steel piping for a raw feel. This is such a personal space so make it whatever you want to be! Try mixing personal items with your tools to make the space seem less workshop like and blend well with you overall interior style. If you fear eccentric, then rejoice at the creative example on the right which shows a chic creative space with a minimalist style. Any style, any room, any size, a creative space is exactly what the doctor ordered this semester.
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.
