With home decor stores such as Next & House of Fraser providing contemporary furnishings, why not up-cycle items to create an eclectic mix which is unique to your home
We look at styled interiors and accessories to keep up with the Jone’s, without spending a bomb.
Style 1: Oak and neutral tones always create a sense of warmth, highlighted with vanilla/linen candles. A soft accent of pink flowers adds a pop of colour, teamed with an oatmeal rug creates a cosy winter wonderland.
Style 2: Feature walls are always deemed as a must have in the home, but putting a mass print, can be overwhelming to the space, so why not go for an oak veneer feature. This can be on the pricey side, but creates an interesting focal point for friends and family to talk about. An oak feature wall brings the space together, and can be teamed up with similar oaks and heavy blues, which looks refreshing in all seasons.
Style 3: Nautical styles always remain on trend, this interior evokes a sense of Greenwich meantime, with navy blues making it clean and fresh. Using copper and bronzes to create a balance, the use of horizontal lines gives the impression of a larger space.
Style 4: Country greenery, brings Richmond park to you. Block colours with underlying neutral
tones: grey/black and green creates a symphony of nature.
Style 5: Mantelpieces always seemed to be cluttered, why not use your pasta jars and wrap them in linen to create a sense of travel, a small cost effective touch to make your mantelpiece unique.
