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.

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:

Light up!

11 August 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home style

LIGHT UP!

 

If you’re planning to update your home lighting, you have to make sure that you use the right type of light for the space and the ambience you want to create in the room. The proper use of light, whether it is natural or coming from a source, can wider the living space and equally serve as a great interior statement. Here at Warings we understand the importance of lighting, as we know it can turn a room into a warm and inviting space. Thus, we have come up with some tips and advice on how to choose the right lighting for your home.


lighting - lampshades and lamp stands

While appearing decorative at first glance, considering the striking prints on our lampshades for example, the lighting at Warings Lifestore is first and foremost functional. We have gathered some of our favourite items – from lamps to fairy lights to illustrate our ideas.


 

Ambient lights

This type of lighting usually provides the space with an overall illumination, without focusing on any specifics. As this is quite common type of lighting we bring you suggestions on how to update this in a stylish and tasteful way – by using the right lampshade.

 

lighting - lampshades and lamp stands

 

Task lamps

We further look at floor and table lamps, or as we prefer to call them ‘Task lamps’. These can be adjusted according to your need – if you’re planning to read a book on the sofa for example, use a floor lamp and situate it next to where you’re sitting. Table lamps function very similarly, the only difference is they can be placed on the coffee or side table, and vary in terms of design and shades.

Dimmers are a must

Dimmers add to the oomph of the lighting in a room, and save energy too! Our Orbis lamp with marble effect and a dimmer comes in two colours – white or black, to best fit the interior. Effortlessly chic, the dimming option on this lamp will take it from task light to an intimate glow. The light itself features a warming amber tint.

Don’t ignore the exterior

Use fairy lights in your home – pop them around the walkway, in the garden, even adore bushes with them. These are sure to create an intimate ambience! Another way of using fairy lights, while  being in sync with the current trend, is popping them into a glass terrarium to create a customized and unique display!

The Special one

Our special one we saved for last! Our detailed map of Norwich lampshade features a truly remarkable typography! Norwich, The Norfolk Broads and over to Great Yarmouth… this lampshade would make the perfect addition to your table lamp!

Pop of colour

27 July 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home style Furniture Home Inspiration Farrow and Ball

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

13 July 2017 | Post By: Alexandra Samuilova | Home style Home Inspiration Farrow and Ball

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.

chair green

 

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:

 

Terrarium Guide

 

 

 

 

 

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.
