Interior / June 7, 2018 /
We all have hand me down furniture. Some are prized possessions, while others are weighing us down with distaste and guilt. Do you have one of those guilty objects in your home? You know, that piece that was handed down to you, you hate it, you want to hide it in the basement, but you can not because it was a gift from Grandma? Why make this decorating mistake? Why have something in your home that does not bring you joy and happiness?
With consumers becoming more aware of how their throw-away shopping habits affect the planet, is already seeing a move towards handmade and eco-friendly products that have character and longevity. Imperfections are being embraced, and natural finishes such as these raw pink plaster walls are cossetting in our hectic lives. Toughen them up with a contrasting element, hard with soft. Hard materials seen here such as leather, steel and wood are contrasted by the soft hand-woven jute rug, linen cushions and houseplants. Tones of terracotta, cream and sage work well with this pink palette and can be added to your room with throws, rugs and cushions. And if you want to add a touch of glamour, throw in a couple of brass candlesticks or picture frames.
