On this page I have selected some of my favourite images and arranged them by room, themes and trends which I hope will help inspire and guide you.
Here are some of my ideas for developing your style:
- Take a pile of magazines and tear out pages of kitchens, sitting rooms, bedrooms and so on that you like. I did this and found that common themes kept coming up, and that I liked painted floors but not exposed brown beams.
- Try out new colours before you commit. In my kitchen, I hung bits of fabric on the walls or on furniture and painted squares of colour next to them and then lived with them for a while.
- Three colours generally work better in a room than two. The third shade makes it more interesting and less 'teamed up' - you can bring in extra colour in carpets, a painting, curtains or even books. It can be small touches.
If you are still unsure, do feel free to email my helpful team with images of your room or house and we will do our best to help. Alternatively, please pop into my showroom and we can guide you through colour schemes, fabrics and furnishings.
Room Inspiration: The Bedroom
The bedroom is one of the rooms we spend most of our time in but can be tricky to design due to large furniture items such as beds and wardrobes that we inevitably have to work around. Whether you like calm and restful or bright and bold, practical design can be beautiful! Accessorize your bed with gorgeous cushions and quilts, adding a covered headboard will complete your cosy look. A dark colour on the walls will add an intimate feel whereas keeping things light will give you a lovely, airy feel. Add some statement lighting and some fresh flowers to really complete your look.
Room Inspiration: The Kitchen
A Kitchen shouldn't just be just practical, it is a casual, fun and social space in the centre of the home. A large table makes a great focal point as well as a practical workspace - add a table cloth, napkins and some beautiful pottery to make it really homely.
Room Inspiration: The Sitting Room
The Sitting room is a treasured space, often setting the style for the rest of your home. It is probably the area we spend most of our time in and so is a great place to start when planning a home make over.
