The new SNOFSA table clock from Ikea is a perfect addition to a bedroom. Not only is it a great style, a nod to Art Deco with a slightly modernised silhouette, but also the clever designers have introduced a silent mechanism so no annoying ticking sound.
In a brass coloured finish, it’s on trend, and just £12.
Following on from the beginning of this year Art deco inspired interiors are still big. Introducing this 1920s look into your home will bring glamour and opulence, wether a small corner or a whole room.
You can hint at this trend or go full on, but be careful not to over indulge as you don’t want it to look themed or staged. This look focuses mainly on two key areas, pattern and furniture, with bold gold designs set against black and rich blue backgrounds on wallpapers and art.
The furniture comes in the form of drinks trolleys and statement armchairs. A good place to start is with a classic round trolley with marble shelves, a design that mixes straight lines and circles, very much echoing the strong print designs of the Art Deco era.
Combine this with a statement chair – velvet is a must – with brass or gold legs and you will have the perfect start to the look. Keep the walls dark to create more drama with dark green, blues and of course black.
Accessories to consider would be classic angled mirrors and perhaps a quirky lamp influenced by the 1920s. As well as this you could continue the feel with soft furnishings like a fringed pillow [ pictured ].
With the weather improving and warmer days coming – it’s time to get back into outdoor market shopping.
Our favourite, and everyone’s favourite worst kept secret, is the incredible Sunbury Antiques Market which has had its home, for now 37 years, at the vast Kempton Park Racecourse. This epic, endless land, houses over 700 outdoor and indoor stalls with furniture, accessories and paraphernalia up for sale. Every era, style, taste and price range is covered here. Nab anything from a bargain 1960s chair for a fiver to old industrial buckets for a tenner or splurge on incredible antique or midcentury furniture. There is many a design classic to be had.
Visit this haven for interiors shopping on the second or last Tuesday of every month.
