What a thing of beauty!

We found this incredible structured armchair, new in from Audenza. It’s an investment at £725 but worth for the statement it would make in room.

A reading chair, a lounge chair, even a desk chair – this beauty is in olive velvet cotton and polyester mix with gold polished steel frame.

As her tag line says ‘inspiring your creativity’, she definitely does.

Medina Grillo, of Grillo Designs, is a creative and talented lady. Her blog is full of exciting interiors and homeware DIYs, craft projects and more. Explore her blog and instagram for an abundance of inspiration (and witty intelligent chat!)

We picked this up-cycling of a small vintage unit as one of our favourite projects, which she did to show the versatility of working with second hand furniture (this piece sourced from a charity she was working with to promote buying second hand!) Just one of the many exciting projects that fill her cool home; inspiring people to make more of the homes even if they are renting but still want to make design statements within their four walls – inspirational, budget friendly ideas.

And if you’re a fan of a great Ikea hack her blog is the place to go!

This season Argos has really upped its game with really lovely homeware and furniture. Following on from yesterday’s post on open furniture, this storage unit from their Nomad range has great looks and is also practical.

Perfect for a living room for displaying books, ornaments and storage boxes. Or perhaps in a kitchen for displaying ceramics and tableware.

Plus the cabinet space at the bottom is ideal for hiding away the things you don’t want your guests to see.

Having everything on display isn’t everyone’s idea of ease and open furniture certainly makes you busy with tidying but it’s also a great way to keep on top on buying excess clothing or homeware, to make you more organised and aware of what you own but also can allow you to use your everyday possessions as part of your display.

Colour blend your clothing, arrange books by colour or ensure all your nicknacks are similar style and trend to create a feature using your open furniture – either shelving, cabinet or wardrobe.

Glass doors can be a handy compromise to get the look and feel of open furniture but ensure things are kept clean and dust free!

Work with colour on the wall behind your storage. Dark tones together are particularly effective to create a slick interior design look but bright contrasting tones can really make what’s on the shelving stand out.
