It’s rich, but calming; readily available in homeware across the high street; easy to match up with similar hues in paint and wallpaper; and compliments well with other on trend favourites including metallic tones, monochrome or jewel tones – or you go true to the trend and have design braveness in having everything being in the teal colour! – a strong bold look.
A familiar sight on big town high streets is favourite department store House of Fraser. Head online or to your closest store to discover what’s new in for Autumn/Winter in their generous homeware and interiors department.
With big brands, own brands and designer brands, and a large range of pricing and styles so there’s something for everyone. Explore the kitchen department for beautifully designed plates and glassware; modern stylish designs in lighting; scented candles galore to make perfect Christmas presents; furniture, art, cushions, bedding, kitchenalia, towels, cutlery, the list goes on.
There’s always great special offers, sales and even a rewards card to ensure shopping there is even more worth while.
Give your home ‘curve appeal’, soften those edges, bring circular and rounded patterns and silhouettes into an interior to create a calm feel and modern design look.
Introduce the circular design in fabrics, wallpapers and other patterned soft furnishings, or try curves in furniture – rounded tables, soft cornered shelving, and moulded smooth plastic furniture.
Look for inspiration from midcentury interiors and 1960s styling but give it a modern look by minimising too many bright colours and not clashing too many patterns. Furniture in plywood and plastic are always strong for curved silhouettes. Head to print stores like King & Mcgaw and Seventy Tree for extra details in your styling by introducing prints with circle patterns and colours that match your scheme.
Definitely a good time to shop with new-to-the-interiors-retail-market online store, Joyful Home Company, who from their recent opening has seen them grow and grow in design, style and more and more gorgeous products.
Explore their range of departments including lighting, furniture and wallpaper. The products are unique and quirky; investment pieces of furniture to make a statement in the home, gorgeous fun soft furnishings to be bold in the home and great colourful prints to adorn your walls in your home.
Our top tip is to head to the wallpaper department for incredible designs to choose from. From bricks to illustrated scenes to monstera leaves and tile work – the statement these would make in a room is incredible.
Joyful Home Company also offer an upholstery service, just drop them a line to find out more or arrange to visit them in their Essex based studio.
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF JOY It’s often the little things in life that bring the most happiness : an unexpected bunch of flowers, a compliment from an old friend, a beautiful scrap of fabric found at the bottom of a drawer…What makes you happy is as individual to you as your fingerprint. We believe that your home should bring you happiness and you should feel free to create the home that inspires you, motivates you and reflects you. It’s not about fashions or trends, but creating a space in which you can feel pure joy.
To celebrate the start of London Design Week and their new and exclusive Morten range launch, Heals are hosting a free party, all welcome.
Shop + party, together with opportunities to do Scandinavian themed creative workshops, gin tasting and nibble on Danish delights. All this in the comfort of their Tottenham Court Road store in central London.
A haven of perfect vintage, midcentury and Scandinavian design under one roof. The range of superb condition vintage pieces at PIB is extensive and includes chairs, tables, lighting, storage, and more.
Style, Quality, and Everlasting: The PIB Concept
PIB was founded because we couldn’t find furniture which combined style & quality online. The products were either of bad quality, badly presented or in the middle of long lists with no coherence of styles.
Currently there are great ‘back to school’ special discounts on various pieces running until 25th September.
