My top tips to create a dreamy ‘white on white’ space…

October 31st, 2014

Inspired by our new Summer cutwork quilt collection…this week it's all about the serene beauty of a 'white on white' space. Layering varied shades of white, cream & the softest, palest natural tones - either keeping it super simple & clean or dotting a few subtle hits of colour through greenery or decorative pieces.

The key to making this look work is texture - tactile fabrics & finishes will add interest to the space & will help to make it feel warm & comfortable. You can really have fun mixing textured fabrics on drapes, bedding, cushions & adding interesting finishes like leather, natural stone, concrete, wood & metal because the colour pallet is so simple & pared back.

Ok, so it might be completely impractical and no fun at all to have a 'white on white' pallet for your living room; but in a kitchen, master/ guest bedroom or study it is a beautiful option to consider.

If you missed it, last year we did an amazing 3 part series on how to choose the 'right white' for your walls, you can find it here - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

10 inspiring reasons to go bold & black…

October 24th, 2014

Many of us are afraid to go to the dark side when it comes to fixtures & finishes - white feels much safer, easier, but black should not be discounted so quickly! Black is interesting, creates contrast & drama while still feeling classic - it is not a colour that will date quickly.

Cabinetry is a great place to inject black - we went with a black wood grain thermolaminate (Polytec 'Black Natura' thermo) for our upstairs lounge kitchenette and it brings such a luxe sophistication to the room...

In a kitchen, all black cabinetry makes a dramatic statement - break things up with white stone bench tops & splash back or for a softer look use dark only for the lower cabinetry and white or wood for the upper wall cabinet doors or consider a wall of black cabinetry with a contrasting white island bench.

Elsewhere in the home black doors are a bold & beautiful option, a black buffet, chest, armoire or a wall of black shelving draws the eye, creates contrast and allows the contents to 'pop'.

If you dont have great natural lighting I would always recommend going with light finishes in darker rooms but for natural light filled spaces why not go bold & black?

The never fail starting point for any space…

October 8th, 2014

Without a doubt my favourite foundation pallet for interiors is black, white & wood.

White providing a light, simple canvas Wood provides warmth & texture Black brings striking contrast The pallet can then be restricted to all black, white, wood furnishings & decor for a simple, Scandinavian inspired feel, or colours can be layered on with rugs, art, cushions & throws to suit your style.

Minimal & simple or a rich, characterful, colour filled space - it just works. Below a selection of spaces proving the beauty of starting with black, white & wood...
