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.

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?
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.
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.
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!
When you walk into a room, the first thing you notice is the room’s focal point.
It is essential to good design as it creates order and a feeling of balance in your room.
It may an attractive feature, such as a fireplace or view, or it may be a not-so-fabulous television or future wall.
Or headboard, scatters and lamps
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.
When it comes to window treatments, the options largely fall into two camps: blinds and curtains. As with most home decor decisions, choosing between them is a matter of personal preference and specifics of the room in question. After all, there are certainly pros and cons to both. While blinds tend to be more affordable and precise in light control, curtains can add instant style and cozy textures to a space.
(Blinds are also easier to clean, technically, but that just means they must be cleaned more often—though that means they’re cleaner at any given moment than curtains…ideally)
Shutters add an element of traditional beauty to most homes they grace. Installing shutters usually involves a sizeable investment; however, it is well worth it if you can afford it. They are very versatile window coverings, as not only are they functional with regards to insulation, privacy, light control and décor aesthetics, but they also have the benefit of being able to make any home that much more secure and if well maintained, they can last a lifetime.
Curtains are by far the most popular option as they are very versatile, easy to make, operate, fit and maintain.
Entertainment centres, or plasma units … whatever you choose to call them there is certain to be a style and arrangement to suit your needs.
If one item of furniture is traditionally the heart of the home, it must surely be the dining room table.
So many memories are created during meals with family and friends that it’s no wonder we see more care taken, and more debate over dining table selection than almost any other item..
