We have put together the essential furniture and complements your bedroom needs.
Bed

Choosing the right bed for your bedroom is one of the most important purchases you’ll make. We chose comfort and design. Quality frame and statement headboard upholstered in fabric or leather will make your bedroom appear soft and cosy. Next, invest in a premium mattress that will guarantee the best night sleep.

Our pick is Ludovic bed by Cattelan Italia, its modern and elegant design with a soft touch of upholstery makes it a perfect fit for any bedroom.

Wardrobe

Contemporary bedroom storage should be sleek, discrete and made unique for you. Our ranges of modular wardrobes will meet everyone’s needs. From hinged door, sliding and flush closing sliding door to wardrobes with integrated TV modules or dressing tables all can be tailored to your lifestyle. With a huge choice of internal accessories, your wardrobe will be functional and organised at all times.

Rug

Creating an inviting bedroom requires layering. One of the easiest way to increase visual softness is with a beautiful rug and bed coverings. Our range of Gjill Fabula Living Rugs will add a perfect touch of luxury and softness to your bedroom.

Mirrors

No bedroom would be complete without a contemporary wall mirror. We recommend Sovet Italia mirrors, because of its simple and modern design it will make a timeless piece in your bedroom. Opt for large mirror positioned close to your dressing area, because it will be handy when trying on outfits as well as it will create the illusion of larger space.

Lighting

Stunning lighting is a must in a bedroom. A decorative touch that can set the mood in your bedroom and create an intimate and inspiring interior. So for that reason we love Flos IC table lamp, providing a soft and delicate light.

Bedside tables

Bedside tables are perfect because you can keep small essentials at arm’s length. Drawer units provide discreet storage possibilities, keeping your bedroom organised and clean- a must for a restful sleeping environment. Jesse Plume Collection is perfect balance between storage and design offering great sense of lightness and elegance.

Kitchen Design

Few tips and points to consider when kitchen planning. We are looking at space, practicality and making your kitchen unique to your home and family.

  • Key things to consider when thinking about design of your new kitchen

One of the first things to consider should be whether this will be your family home forever or just one for the next couple of years. This can majorly influence your budget as well as style. If you are planning on not going to be in the property long – term and selling it in few years you may opt for more neutral and universal layout and style for your kitchen.

When it comes to space, you should consider the function of the room. Is it just a kitchen?Will it be an open space with dining and living space combined to provide the social area?Can you accommodate separate utility area or will it be incorporated into the kitchen? If so, we suggest to separate washing machine area from the hob / sink area. That will reduce mess and taking up valuable kitchen space with laundry items.

When considering completely new space, it is wise to reflect on your current or past kitchen. Make notes of what didn’t work, like for example lack of storage space or prep area. Also take a note of the positive factors like positioning of pull out racks by the hob or anything that works perfectly for you in your kitchen.

  • Make your kitchen personal

Colour and material choice is key in making your kitchen unique and can make a huge difference between two similar style kitchens.

Splash back can act as a feature in your kitchen, by adding splash of colour or different texture can allow the homeowners to let their personality shine through.

  • Absolute must-have in a new kitchen

The main must-have for a new kitchen is a good balance of storage and preparation space. We can make any design look good, but kitchen has to be practical considering storage and everyday use of kitchen. Waste and recycling storage is key as well as clever units with pull out storage and mechanisms that allow to make the most of every corner.

  • Accessories worth investing in

Hot water tap like Quooker is extremely popular, freeing up space on the counter as a kettle is no longer required. They are great for saving time with cooking as well as making tea or coffee in second. We have fitted one in almost every kitchen we have installed lately.

Internal accessories like spice racks, corner inserts, bottle storage and internal drawers all contribute to maximising on storage, making the kitchen work exactly how you need it.

Book an appointment with one of our designers to discuss your dream kitchen. Any size, any shape we can make it beautiful and most importantly, we can make it work for you.

AUTUMN / WINTER 2019 INTERIOR TRENDS

Continue Reading »
The leaves are starting to drop and the clocks are about to change, so this means it’s time to look at the autumn/winter trends!  We’ve put together few of our favourites, have a look below as we show you how to incorporate those exciting trends in your home this coming season.
Peacock blue

This strong colour can be easily added to your interior in form of statement piece or splash of colour within the furniture. You can team it with a lighter colour like millennial pink or neutrals; this prevents the peacock shade from overpowering. Use a deeper shade of blue for the curtains and tableware to add depth and break up the scheme with a pop of mustard yellow and a big cushion or two as seen on a picture below.

Black furniture

Black accessories emerged as a trend last year, and a year later, it’s creeping into furniture, especially dining chairs. However don’t be afraid to add more black in your consoles, sideboards and accessories to add atmosphere to your interior or create a contrast in light spaces.

Comforting layers

With the nights drawing in and the autumnal clock changing imminently, it’s time to cosy up. One of the best ways to do this is to layer up your accessories using many beautiful textures and warming tones of amber and navy. We love the idea of two or three rugs overlapping each other as can be seen in our showroom using Fabula Living Rugs, it adds a lovely decorative feel to a room.

Neutrals

For those who don’t fancy colour, neutrals are perfect –elegant and sophisticated and oh-so-stylish. Use standout organic-shaped lighting as a focal point and match both pendant and table lamp for a cohesive look. Use a mixture of oatmeal tones teamed with rust for a cosy feel and pick a pale wood coffee table to complete the look. Complements with pale pinks and greens and blues for natural interior.

Green

From dark rich green colours to exotic, energetic greens. It is a great colour to include in you home. Whether its by using it in furniture, plans or paint/wallpaper it adds calming tones to any interior.

Black Kitchens

The black in kitchens is staying!  For  2020, we are seeing a lot of bold cabinetry colours – people seem to be braver than they used to. Not only shades of green, but also, moving away from cool grey tones, we’re seeing more and more black. Black adds sophistication, drama and depth to the space, especially when dressed with statement metallic ironmongery and well-positioned lightning, which is essential to light up a darker scheme.

We are updating our Cambridge showroom kitchen display and a new black kitchen is making an appearance soon.
