Curtains, roman blinds, blinds or shutters?

IMG-20170623-WA0001

Choosing the correct window covering is essential and with the wide array of options available, it can be a rather challenging task. Things that should be considered when choosing your window coverings include the style of the room, the interior and architectural design of the space, light requirements, your budget and of course, your lifestyle.

If your room gets a lot of natural sunlight, choose window treatments that can control the light entering the room. Lined curtains are ideal for areas like this. Alternatively shutters are also good, as they can block out the light entirely.

If there is a lack of natural light entering a room and it is dark, then the window coverings should be unlined and made from sheer, light weight fabrics in light colours.

If your windows are oddly shaped, then you might have to get the window coverings custom-made to fit your particular window.

Always match the theme of your window dressing to the style of the room.

Make the most of your outdoor space with furniture that complements your favorite open-air activities.

Spring is here, and summer is on it’s way to come. It is perfect time to start with your interior design of your outdoor spaces…

Consider and design outdoor areas as carefully as interior spaces. Think of these as beautifully finished and furnished outdoor ‘rooms’ and not merely verandas or patios.

Choose Materials Wisely

Rust-resistant furniture stands up to years of sun exposure, and soggy swimming cloths are never a problem on cushions covered in water-repellent fabric.

Glass tabletops resist scratches and are easy to clean, however only glass that has been tempered to resist breaking should be used outdoors.

A traditional patio table set is an obvious choice, but conventional doesn’t necessarily mean boring. Look for styles with a center bowl that can double as an ice bucket or fire pit.

Work Your Space

Think small spaces have cramped your outdoor lifestyle? With space-savvy furniture, you can dine, entertain, and relax even in the most spatially challenged area. A bistro table works on a cozy balcony, while stackable chairs can easily be tucked away when not in use. Even the simplest arrangement of casual chairs can transform an outdoor space into a popular gathering place.

If you’re looking to build up a healthy tan this summer, you should definitely consider purchasing sun-loungers.

Winter is all about spending time at home …

Winter is all about spending time at home – It’s time for roaring fires, bubbling curries, board games, cosy throws and blankets.133d43992c0fdfdd3e6a06e118e578e8

As temperatures dip lower, bring your focus inward by re-arranging your furniture. If you have a fireplace, pull pieces in toward the center of the room and face them toward the hearth to create a cosy gathering spot for winter entertaining.

Ways to Warm up your Home

LIFESTYLE-ICON-Living-room-4.jpg

As the temperature drops and the rain starts to fall, we’re all spending just that much longer under the covers. Now that winter is officially here, it’s time to make your home feel warm and cosy. So, why not give your bedroom a style update and make the most of the season?

LIFESTYLE-ICON-bedroom.jpg

 Add some texture

One of the best ways to warm up a room is with texture. Add a cosy touch to your bedroom by updating your space with textured throws and pillows. A fluffy scatter cushion or luxuriously plush blanket will help to turn your bedroom into a snug refuge, even on the coldest days.

washed-cotton-quilt-sham-z.jpg

Colour me cosy

Make winter blues a thing of the past by adding a pop of colour to your space. Rich oranges and yellows will brighten up your bedroom and make it feel warmer. If you prefer to keep your room neutral, even one or two accent pieces can make a huge difference. Our colourful, patterned winter sheeting is the perfect addition to help liven up your room and make it more exciting.

Warmth from the ground up

Help keep your room comfy by covering cold floors with a fluffy area rug. An extra layer will add texture and warmth to your space. You can even layer one rug on top of another to create your own unique style.

Lovely layers

Just like in fashion, winter is all about adding layers to your home. Update your space by layering our thick winter sheets with a comforter, throws and scatter cushions. Avoid drab decor this winter by choosing our statement cushions and blankets with playful patterns and bold hues. The more layers, the merrier!

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE DESIGNING YOUR HOME

Sun_Gibeon-PhotographySun — Sunlight is one of the most important factors to consider when designing a home. Improperly sighting a home without regard to sun can lead to glare, overheated spaces, sun damage or dark and gloomy interiors. Mapping out the sun’s path on your site can inform you about what times of the day spaces may need shading, how the surrounding environment will affect the site, as well as what places will be best for outdoor living.

IMG_8409

IMG_8408

Views — Although every home may not be blessed with sweeping views of a beautiful landscape, each site still has its unique surroundings to take into account.  Whether it is framing small focused views in an urban setting, or designing floor-to-ceiling windows towards a mountain vista, it is important to highlight the best aspect of the site and make the home feel grounded to its unique location. Just as important as good views are bad views. Simple design changes can screen neighboring homes, roadways or any other eyesores.

IMG_8458

IMG_8592

Wind — Although wind is a bit more unpredictable than the sun, it is a factor that can really make or break a home. In warmer climates, it is important to site a home so cross-breezes will flow during the hot months, whereas in cold climates you may want to buffer the wind with landscape to reduce heating bills. No matter where you live, some forethought about wind will enhance your outdoor living spaces, reduce energy costs and even help with maintenance!

Wind_Vertical-Arts

Wind2_David-Patterson-PhotographySound — Anyone who has ever been woken up by the garbage truck in the morning knows that noise can cause a damper on daily living. Make sure to visit your site at different times of the day to determine the main sources of noise pollution.  Proper siting of quiet spaces, such as bedroom vs public spaces, or even kitchens can help prevent some of the tolls on daily life. Additionally, landscaping, high-quality windows and sound insulating can make a huge difference.

All rooms need a focal point

Scion_Mr_Fox_Cushion_in_Naples_A_SS_2

When you walk into a room, the first thing you notice is the room’s focal point.

Scribbels_InteriorsIMG_0530.jpg

It is essential to good design as it creates order and a feeling of balance in your room.

IMG_8439

It may an attractive feature, such as a fireplace or view, or it may be a not-so-fabulous television or future wall.

Scribbels_InteriorsIMG_0665

Or headboard, scatters and lamps

Scribbels_InteriorsIMG_0561

The focal point of a room influences the arrangement of furniture.

 

Decorating the room to emphasize the focal point is a great way to re-energize the space. It also takes the focus off the less attractive features of the room.
