You can literally turn any wall of your home into your own personal art gallery. Everyone should display some form of art in their home, whether it is a rare oil painting or a cherished drawing from your childs pre-school days. The road block that most encounter is how to properly hang art. The best way to ensure there are no mistakes, and nasty nail holes to fill, is to trace and cut-out the frames outline on paper. Simply tape the paper cut-outs onto your wall, trying numerous placement options until you have the desired outcome.
Mixing different textures, contemporary furniture with brown antiques and vibrant colours to create a unique, beautifully bold room. Bright velvet cushions, a purple leather ottoman mixed with printed fabric, ceramic lamps and artwork, silk velvet sofas. Forget your bog-standard grey or neutral rooms, the only beige thing about this room is the suede walls, why use paint when you can use fabric?!
Be bold. A dramatic sitting room with a basalt painted feature wall and citrus yellow shelving to highlight. An electric fire brings the room to life and looks fantastically real with its flickering flames and perfectly sawn, round logs that we recessed into the wall on each side. Leather sofas sit elegantly in the space with zingy velvet cushions that pop. I love the way this room sets a formal yet cosy atmosphere. Socialise with friends or recline the sofas and it is the perfect cinema room. To get the look: use dark paint, neutral flooring and furniture. Then let it pop with accessories. Add a fire if you can for warmth and a beautiful focal point.
Have you ever painted a room in a bold, bodacious color? If you did, how long did it take for you to pick up the paint brush again, covering the once-loved color with something more calm? Another example of bold-gone-wrong— the bright red couch that you thought you just had to have. Fast-forward three years later—yeah, you are pretty sick of it now are not you?
