Pop of colour

Thursday, 27 July 2017 13:12:36 Europe/London

Minimalistic interior design with a 1950s inspired twist

 Inspiration, colour pop, home interior, home design, living room, orange

When it comes to home interior design, people tend to choose natural or neutral-inspired colours for their homes, in order to achieve a sense of harmony and comfort. But adding a pop of colour to your home interior can be an interesting twist and a way to create a customized look. In the 1950s, home design trends revolved around the idea of colour pop with the use of primary colours in addition to neutral ones, which would work as an accent to the room, also known as kitsch trend. Inspired by comics, kitsch trend on its own nowadays might be considered excessive. It is in the recent years, that minimalistic-inspired interior began trending, featuring cold Scandinavian-inspired colours, such as grey, white and black. Yet, we believe that to achieve great balance, a combination between the 1950s kitsch trend and Scandinavian vibes can be right for any living space. The colour pop inspired by the 50s can work as a focal point and a bold accent to the otherwise neutral home look. We have gathered some examples on how to do this at your home.



Farrow&Ball

As full stockists of Farrow&Ball, we have noticed that our customers prefer neutral shades for their living spaces, like Old White, Elephant’s Breath and Cabbage White. But in the range of 132 unmatched shades that Farrow&Ball offer, there are some confident and dazzling colours, which can be a great addition to the uniform colours.

Farrow&BallFarrow&Ball’s ‘industrial colours’ feature a warm Babouche yellow and Downpipe grey. Great combination, complementing shades and another dose of colour pop.


Farrow&Ball

Farrow&Ball's range of dazzling bright colours are perfect for updating walls or furniture inspired by the 50s interior design trend.

 


 

Take inspiration from the main combinations of neutral and bright colours trending right now.

Black+White & Yellow

uplifting

Black&White + Yellow

Being the colour of the sun, yellow is balancing this otherwise black and grey interior right. If you’re not feeling enough colour confident to paint a wall in bright yellow, accessorising is probably the safest option to try out new trends.


GREY & ORANGE

handsome grey and dazzling orange

grey, orange, farrow&ball, mirror, interior Charlotte's Locks, Farrow&ball, paint, orange

Our personal favourite, this combination is very subtle to the eye, but still exploiting the full potential of the twist that is pop of colour. For even better results, the orange can be even brighter, for a great bold look. Or why not paint your mirror in Farrow & Ball’s great colour, Charlotte’s locks – amazing colour to create a unique vibe.

 

GREY+RED

classy & chic

This evidently eclectic design is a chic and efficient to re-create the nature of 50s inspired interior trend. Simple as it is, red contrasts any shade of grey (or even any colour), which makes it a go-to option for an easy change.

Streaming from vintage inspired trends, anyone can afford to be bold with some dazzling-colours pieces. Here are some of our favourite items to help you achieve this trend:

Styling the season – July

Thursday, 13 July 2017 17:53:36 Europe/London

Summer is in full swing and we decided to dedicate this week’s blog post on bringing you some fresh and innovative ideas for home design and decoration, inspired by the season. We’ve gathered some interior design tips and a few of our favourite items to help you transform your living space.

Using home accessories to update your living space is a smart way to bring some light into your home. Try using different materials and styles to create an individualised look.

 

 

 

Our simple and stylish fern tea candle holders are a must-have home accessory.  

 

 

 

 

These aqua-inspired throws and cushions can add a further touch of colour to your sofa or bed. Or maybe pop them on your favourite armchair for maximising its comfort.

 

 

 

 

Contrasting furniture and décor is a simple but effective way of creating the desired ambiance, as the added item would pop out due to eye-catching colours. A great example of this is the dazzling bright colours on this lamp, which contrast the dark shade of the furniture.

 

 

 

 

 

To bring your home decoration a step further to a nature-inspired look, add lots of plants. Plant decoration sure makes a living space more comfortable and breathable.

 

 

And while we’re on the subject of plant decoration, terrariums are having a major moment in home style and decoration. They are miniature gardens created under glass and there are ways in which you can plant your own terrarium.

 

 

. Here are some guidelines on how to do this:

If you’re feeling colour-confident, why don’t you try updating your living room walls or kitchen cabinets with the fabulous colour range from Farrow&Ball. Some of the colours are bold and bright for an extra-summer vibe.

 

 

Here are some suggestions:

 

 

 

Summer bedroom refreshed with Farrow and Ball Paint. This shade is Cromarty no.285, not too blue or grey, it is the perfect shade for a July bedroom, bringing a soft touch.

 

We love a twist on walls painting, like this one here.

 

TIP: Arsenic No. 214 looks great when paired up with Farrow&Ball’s Old White, hence the contrast in colours….

 

 

 

There is something almost defiant about using the botanic Studio Green on living room walls. This colour, reflecting nature, is ideal for modern rooms creating calm and serene feeling.

Winter Gardening Tips Blog

Thursday, 20 October 2016 12:49:55 Europe/London

The short dark days and harsh weather can make the prospect of gardening in winter incredibly unattractive. However, just a little bit of winter planning can get your garden ready for the year ahead.

Our Top October Gardening Tips


October can be such a beautiful month, but also field miles apart from the sunny end of September when it comes to weather, and temperature.


-          Cut back perennials that have died down

-          Plant out spring cabbages

-          Harvest apples, pears, grapes and nuts

-          Finish collecting seeds from the garden to sow

-          Move any tender plants into a greenhouse of conservatory

-          Renovate old lawns, or create new grass areas by laying turf

 


Spring Clean your Greenhouse


bot brush


As the days have become shorter, you want to saver any sunlight that you can for your greenhouse. Washing and scrubbing your greenhouse with a bowl of warm water will minimise any shading of the greenhouse, and clearing out the gutters will ensure that water is able to flow away.

Whilst cleaning the exterior, make sure you have a go at cleaning the interior to help reduce any pests or diseases. Remove plants and sweep away any unwanted debris. Then disinfect the paths and staging of the greenhouse, as well as the inside of the glass. Make sure you allow a couple of days for ventilating to ensure it thoroughly dries.

Why not take the winter months as ample opportunity to wash out any pots or seed trays that you wish to plant in for the spring.

 

Get Planning


Now is the ideal time to start planning what you want to plant in your garden, and what you want to achieve from your garden next spring. Why not treat yourself to a gardening notebook to keep on top of things.

Composting


If you do not already have a compost heap or bin, now is the perfect time to get one. For those who already have a heap or bin, a good stir will only help the composting process.

 

Vegetables you can grow outdoors in winter


 kew garden gloves


Just because it is the winter, it does not mean that you have to stop gardening altogether. There are plenty of vegetables that are able to be grown outdoors throughout the winter months.

 

-          Garlic

-          Onions, Spring Onions and Shallots

-          Carrots

-          Broad Beans

-          Peas

-          Asparagus

-          Winter Salads

 

Just make sure you have a pair of fleece-lined gardening gloves to keep your hands warm!

Look after your Lawn


If your lawn is looking a little worse for wear (like mine), then it is the perfect time to add a little life back into your lawn. Remove any old grass clippings, moss, and anything else that may be covering your lawn, and add it to the compost heap. Now is the ideal time to lay a new turd, giving it plenty of time to develop before next summer.

September Gardening Tips

Friday, 2 September 2016 14:45:31 Europe/London

There’s not much to do in the way of your flower garden at this time of year, but if you have a veggie patch, then this is the time to obtain the rewards of your harvest. Now is also the ideal time to start planning and planting your spring-flowering bulbs.


September gardening tips


 Top Tips

 

  • Pick your autumn raspberries
  • Dig up any remaining potatoes before slug damage spoils them
  • Keep watering new plants, using rain water if possible
  • Reduce frequency of houseplant watering
  • Cover any leafy vegetable crop with bird-proof netting
  • Plant your spring flowering bulbs (4 times the depth of the bulb, if possible). Plant daffodils, alliums and all other bulbs (except tulips), so that develop good root systems.
  • Sow winter salads now and grow them in a sheltered place, in a large pot or in the greenhouse as a follow up act for tomatoes.
  • If you love peonies this is the time to order bare-root for October planting.
  • Keep deadheading roses, perennials and annuals to produce more flowers


gardening pot brush


Stay tidy: our pot brushes are ideal for keeping your plant pots clean as we begin to get a little more rain.


kew garden gloves


Keep warm:our leather Kew gardening gloves are fully lined to beat that chill that September may bring!
