Children's Gifts & Ideas

19 October 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Gift Ideas

 

With half term and Halloween just around the corner, we decided to dedicate this week’s blog on children’s gifts that we have available at our Lifestore.

Starting with half term, it is every parent’s struggle to keep their children entertained for two weeks straight. And yes, you can probably enjoy some free time with the kids, take them to some nice places they haven’t visited before, but we all know at some point you need distraction tools. It is so often this days that parents would just hand an IPad or a phone to their child in order to keep them occupied. If you are looking for something different to entertain your children with, why don’t you try some of our suggestions?

Update your kitchen

13 October 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home Inspiration

With the indoor season in full swing, we're thinking more and more about updating the different parts of our interior. If you're looking to introduce a slight change into your kitchen, then we might have a few suggestions to help you do this.

1. Update your kitchen accessories   

Updating your accessories is the easiest and probably the safest way to decorate your kitchen. Try a  selection of timeless items such as natural wood appliences to create an efforlessly chic decor.

Wooden Essentials

2. Colours

Kitchens are a great place to add a striking colour. Currently trending in kitchen designs is Blue hues. The rich tones of Stiffkey Blue or Inchyra Blue by Farrow&Ball would  give a kitchen a wonderfully cosy and welcoming feeling.

Home Grey and Blue Autumn/Winter inspiration

05 October 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home Inspiration

With the temperatures plunging each day, the indoor season has well & truly arrived, so this week we’re finding inspiration from some season apppropriate grey and blues!

 

Ideal for decorating this winter are our new vases that sport a frosted finish:


    

The frost finish and clear base on these beautiful vases makes them the ideal accessory for the winter.

And while accessorising is certainly the easiest way to decorate for the new season, if you're feeling confident with bold colours, you can create an irresistibly warm and inviting home with Farrow&Ball richly pigmented shades.

5 THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT AUTUMN

29 September 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Lifestyle

   5 things we love about autumn

Autumn is undoubtedly our favourite season here at Warings Lifestore. Warm sweaters, the rain tapping on the window and lovely fall hues that fill the streets in the blink of an eye. It is clear that autumn brings a sense of cosiness and,  what's more, autumn aesthetics are just great to look at. Therefore, we decided to dedicate this week’s blog to the starting of the indoor season and share with you five of the things we just love about it.

 




throws, autumn, cosy, blanket, snuggle, cold


1. COSY BLANKETS AND THROWS


The first thing we love about autumn probably doesn't come as a one is a no surprise to anyone. As the temperatures are plunging, a soft and warm blanket become one’s best friend. Not only to beat the cool autumn breeze, but blankies are also perfect for snuggling on the sofa. 




candles, scneted candles, lavender, cosy, autumn, vibes         2. SCENTED CANDLES

And speaking about snuggling on the sofa, our next favourite thing about autumn is candles. Creating a relaxing and smooth ambience, lighting a candle would light up the space and impart great frangrance into your home. Reading by the candlelight, wrapped in your favourite blanket, while smelling a faint smell of cinnamon - does it get more autumn-y than that?



 

     

   3. HOT CHOCOLATE WEATHER hot chocolate, autumn, interior, coffee shop

Right. We are on the doorstep of colder months, which means hot chocolate is A MUST. Find your favourite spot for a great hot chocolate, and you know what: get all the works! Cream, marshmallows, sprinkles… treat yourself! (that’s our sweet tooth speaking right there). As well as a treat, a hot drink would keep you warm while conquireing the daY

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 rain, autumn, leaves,

 4. THE SOUND OF RAIN


Lots of rain is inevitable during autumn. The sound of the rain is a great addition to a cosy afternoon in, guaranteed to help you nap. But not so great when you’re outdoors, some might argue…

                 umbrella, rain, autumn

 

 


 

5. RUGS 

Warm floor coverings are guaranteed to make a home feel cosier and more welcoming. Rugs can be a stylish addition to your home, by adding a bold statement to the room. While watching the rain drop and autumn leaves fall, having a rug can make you dream of a colder wheather........

Card Room Green Inspiration

18 September 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Farrow and Ball

Take inspiration from our Colour of the Week here at Warings Lifestore, Card Room Green No. 79 by Farrow&Ball.

A masculine green, with visible grey undertones, this colour is named after the study like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period. Being particularly moody, Card Room Green works great when contrasted with warm neutral colours.

3 simple ways to style cushions

13 September 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home Inspiration

Adding cushions to your home décor is a wonderful way to bring texture, colour and a luxurious edge to an interior scheme. Here at Warings Lifestore we believe that you can never have too many cushions – it is the sense of comfort they bring to the place that makes them truly special. Thus, we have put together a few tips to help you choose the perfect type and colours of cushions for your space.


 

Generally speaking, interiors can be bold and confident, in terms of colour schemes and furnishings, or Scandi-inspired, featuring mainly neutral hues. So you can go either way with cushions, based on the basics of your interior.

 

            1. Colour co-ordination

TIP: Choose one colour and decorate with different tones of that colour.

One of the simplest ways to guarantee colour scheme perfection is to mix design but keep the colours of the cushions within the same palette. This rule is crucial to follow especially when using really bold colours; neutral base colour is easier to follow, but has the same unifying effect.

             2. Size and shape

Colour might seem like the most important feature of your cushions, but the truth is that size and shape will impact the overall look of your home just as much. For a uniform look, choose one of two shapes of cushions and create two symmetrical displays on either end of your sofa.

 

sofa, cushions

 

TIP: For a more relaxed and eclectic feel mix and match odd number of cushions in different shapes and sizes.


            3. Consider the season

TIP: This season neutral is trending – go with brown, beige and white hues.


Soft furnishings, and especially cushions, are fairly easy to chance, and are perfect for updating your space quickly. With autumn just around the corner, cushions can be the perfect way to reflect the changing of seasons – light coloured cushions, as well as warmer colours and textured materials are all great for autumn. Updating the range of cushions is a small change that will help you keep your room and design concept fresh and current.

Bring the outdoors in with the nature’s great colours: purple, teal and grey

purple, cushions, floral

Purple: spiritual, soul searching, mysterious, enchanting

Teal: positive, serene, sophisticated, cool, tasteful, confident

Grey: sleek, modern, classy, stylish


This week we bring to you a home interior inspired by floral hues. Floral purple with a teal edge is a trending colour combination, currently a top one on Pinterest, so taking inspiration from that and our colour of the week Farrow&Ball’s Vardo we decided to dedicate this blog on how to decorate your home using this timeless combination.

Being full stockists for Farrow&Ball, here at Warings we have the 132 unmatched shades of paint, giving us the opportunity to choose a differend shade every week. This week, we stopped at the timless teal - Vardo No. 288.

The teal blue colour looks beautiful when painted on woodwork as well as as a statement wall in any room. Why not update a cabinet, table or chair with a touch of paint, and contrast it with a neutral background? What's more, this colour works extremely well with darker shades like reds and greys.

Purple textiles and teal walls sounds great, but it can be hard to decorate when combining two vibrant colours. We have selected some of the most pinned images on Pintrest  ons and most pinned images on Pinterest to inspire you:
