BRING THE OUTSIDE IN

House plants look great, purify our air and are scientifically proven to support human health. They’re an inexpensive way to bring life into any room. Focus your attention on some leafy additions to your interior -dedicating the time to care for them can be a great way to calm your mind.

STRUCTURED SIMPLICITY

Nordic simplistic living centres around creating a calm, tranquil, chilled out space, using neutral colours and texture. It’s the perfect trend for people who are attracted to simple design that’s warm and safe rather than minimalist. Interest can be brought in by raw finishes and textures.

UPCYCLING

Enjoy creative time by upcycling older pieces of furniture that no longer fit your interior vision. Give a favourite piece of furniture a new lease of life. Given the benefits of sustainability and recycling this is no ‘trend’. Get creative, save money and enjoy bespoke pieces. It could be as simple as changing the handles, adding some texture with rattan cane panelling or painting your furniture a different colour.

 

MAKE USE OF YOUR VERTICAL SPACE

Use your wall space to display your personality -  carefully curated possessions, your own artwork or all the holiday snaps you’ve finally found time to organise. Not everything needs to be in a frame; think about using poster hangers, rails or even washi tape for your display.  Try basket wall hangings -they’re a good way to add texture and interest to a space.
