Valentine's Day Inspired Interiors

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we thought we’d take a look at some of the most romantic interiors to get you in the spirits.

Valentines interiors don’t have to be all pink and hearts; we love the soft muted colour palette of this living room.  Candles, faux fur throws and soft lighting have been incorporated to add a sense of warmth and cosiness to the overall look.

Valentine 1 

The soft pastel shades used in this colour scheme add a touch of Parisian chic to this home.  The dramatic shimmering chandelier adds a focal point to the room and co-ordinates beautifully with the iridescent sheen of the leather.

Valentine 2 

This look is more English country Garden with touches of romance.  The use of bright Pink flowers really stands out against the white walls and furnishings.  A mix of candles adds softness to the look.

 Valentine 3

 

Accessories are the easiest way to add a sense of romance to your home, and by searching a little harder on the high street you can find pieces that are stylish enough to work all year round.

Colour Predictions for 2015

Towards the end of every year industry experts predict what colours they think will dominate in the upcoming year.  With this in mind we thought we’d look at 2 of them and how best to make these colours work for your home.

Pantone: Marsala

Pantone say “Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture.”

 Pantone Color Of The Year Marsala

The deep earthy tone of Marsala lends itself to most trends and works well in both traditional and modern decors. A great way to combine the two is add a few retro pieces to an otherwise modern room.  This Persian style is very traditional yet still works well with the clean and simple modern décor of this room. 

Marsala Rug 

Marsala also works well when kept simple.  By covering this modern sofa in plain yet luxurious velvet, it really contrasts against rough painted brick walls and white floorboards.

As Pantone suggest, accessories are a great way to incorporate Marsala into the home. We’ve picked these below to show how they would work with a complimentary colour palette.   Marsala

Dulux: Copper Orange

Copper Orange is a warm and hue with pastel pink undertones.  This colour works well with lots of other colours, but Dulux have chosen to showcase Copper Orange with brilliant white, salmon pinks, and zesty tangerine.

Using Copper Orange as a solid colour in a matt finish gives a fresh modern look.  The tree in the corner enhances the Mediterranean feel of this tone.

Dulux Orange Walls  

Copper Orange has a distinct 60’s feel when combined with pastel shades and copper accessories.

We’re sure to see these colours throughout the year, but the most important thing to remember when updating your home is to create a space that works for you.  Trends are great for inspiring us but we should always try and incorporate them with our style.  If you would like any help or advice on updating the furnishings in your home, call Plumbs today for a FREE no obligation quotation.

Happy New Year

January’s here, the decorations have been taken down and we’ll still be finding pine needles in the carpet for weeks, so it’s not surprising that January can seem a sombre month. 

With that in mind we’ve searched for the most beautiful interiors we could find in order to lift your spirits…

Happy NY 1 

This design mixes different styles and materials to create an effortlessly cool space.  The mid-century furniture adds a retro feel to the living room and contrasts perfectly with the modern and industrial lighting.

Happy NY 2 

Gallery walls have been popular for a while but we love the creativeness of this one.  The colours of the artwork blend to match the walls, which make the vintage frames really pop.  By adding a few more modern frames the look is kept much more up-to-date and in keeping with the rest of the room.

Happy NY 3 

Darker shades of grey can be hard to use especially if you want to create a light and airy space, however by keeping woodwork white and adding a bold colour you can really brighten up the room.  Orange is a great contrast colour to grey and we especially like the way this tangerine hue has been used to co-ordinate the furnishings. 

 Happy NY 4

Purple is a big trend for the season but it can be overpowering.  By keeping walls simple and introducing purple shades through furniture and accessories you can easily control the overall effect of the look.

If your home needs a lift after the festivities, why not call Plumbs today to speak to one of our expert home consultants.
