Top Looks for Spring 2014

Spring goes hand in hand with a fresh start, so it is a great month to update your interior and refresh your furniture and home accessories.  This spring’s interior design trends are all about creating drama and being bold with colour.

Contemporary Solid Wood Furniture – Home Accessories – Spring 2014 InteriorsLight wood tones are back in fashion and natural, earthy colours take centre stage. Light and fresh, they will help your interior feel open and elegant. The softer blend of natural wood and honey coloured tones will soften designs and keep furniture from feeling heavy.  2014 is all about bringing elements of the outdoors inside the home, so look for wooden furniture pieces that are rustic in character and appearance and are filled with natural history.  Reclaimed wood furniture is an ideal choice for this and the high quality timbers will create a showpiece that will last for generations.

Ethnic fabrics and upholstery is popular this spring and will make your home look exotic and authentic.  Look for printed cushions and wall art that is interesting and adds colour to your decor.

Looking to Design a Relaxing Haven So You Can Sleep Better? Here’s How to Create the Perfect Bedroom with White Furniture

White Furnishings – Solid Wood Bedroom Furniture – Creating a Room of Relaxation

White furnishings in the bedroom can make your space feel bright, light and fresh.  An all white colour scheme produces a blank canvas so you can easily transform this space to suit your personality or even the seasons. Decorating with white furniture will give you the flexibility to update walls and accent colours whenever you desire. If you wake up and decide you want a country themed bedroom then just add floral cushions, bedding and accessories and your room will have a new look in an instant.  Want glamour and opulence? Then team your white bedroom with black for that classic monochrome appeal. The choices are endless!  The main benefit of choosing this colour is that white furnishings are so easily accessorised and focal points can be created by introducing accent pieces or splashes of colour.

If your space is small, then white furnishings will help reflect light while at the same time providing a beautiful, crisp canvas for wall art and accessories.  White furniture gives the illusion that a room is bigger than it really is, which is why white is such a popular choice for even the smallest of homes.

White Furnishings – Solid Wood Bedroom Furniture – Creating a Room of RelaxationIf you are worried that white furniture will make your bedroom feel cold, then don’t be! White is an appealing and practical choice for this space and can be warmed up by introducing cushions, throws, lighting and wall art.  White bedroom furniture has many benefits: along with being very stylish and elegant, it will go with any decor theme. With so many choices on the market you can easily find everything you need from beds to wardrobes, bedside tables, storage trunks and chests of drawers.

Your bedroom should be the place where you go to unwind after a long, hard day. It is therefore even more important to spend time decorating this room with care so you can create a peaceful haven.  Your decor should be inviting and calm, and what could be more relaxing and soothing then a white bedroom?  White bedroom furniture will never go out of fashion and you can easily update your room whenever you wish.  If you decide to add colour to your walls and curtains, you won’t need to change your furniture as they are guaranteed to match.  Everything goes with white!

White is One of this Year’s Hottest New Trends. Our Interior Designer Looks at How White is Right in the Living Room

White Furniture – Trendy Living Room Furnishings

White furniture is a fashionable choice for many interior designers, especially those working on smaller apartments as it can create a calm and serene space while also making a room feel larger and lighter. The latest nautical interior trend has also created a new appeal for white furniture, especially in the living room.

White Furniture – Trendy Living Room FurnishingsWe all know that choosing the right colour can transform your living room into a classy and comfortable space, but how white is right? Choosing white as the dominant colour works perfectly in modern living rooms as it creates a blank canvas, allowing you to introduce accent colours through accessories such as lighting, wall art and soft furnishings.  If you want your living room to feel cosy, and are worried that white will feel cold, then look for furniture that has been distressed to add character. You might want to dress your space with fluffy cushions and soft throws to create balance (so your room has an airy and open feel, but also has warmth).  Another benefit of white furniture and walls is that you can tailor your living room to suit the season. In spring and summer, for example, simple changes such as adding yellow and blue cushions to your sofa will enhance that fresh feeling. In winter, you can change to reds, warm browns and muted tones to create a much more cosy and relaxed interior.

White Furniture – Trendy Living Room FurnishingsWhite furniture is available on the high street in many different styles including shabby chic, oriental, painted and distressed so you will easily find items to suit your theme and personality.  The benefit of choosing white furniture, either for an entire room, or to just introduce one piece, is that it will instantly update the look and feel of your living room.

 

White Furniture – Trendy Living Room FurnishingsIf you love the nautical trend, then look for wooden furniture items that have a white-washed appearance. This means they have been painted and then rubbed down so some of the timber grain shows through.  Blend this distressed furniture with natural elements such as water hyacinth baskets, mirrors and accessories to really complete the look.

 

White Furniture – Trendy Living Room FurnishingsIf you want to add a touch of the Orient and create a calming space, you may want to consider introducing white lacquered furniture to your living room.  For this look, a feature wall with oriental themed wallpaper will give your room a stunning focal point. You might want to add simple oriental accessories such as Buddha’s, urn vases and bamboo lighting to bring the whole look together. Puji has a wonderful selection of Oriental inspired accessories that will give your sitting room a tranquil and relaxed look.

Are you Ready to Update Your Home This Season? Five Steps to Revamping Your Interior this Spring

There is no better time to freshen your home interior than the start of a new season.  And, what a perfect season spring is: with the flowers starting to bloom, the sun peeping out from behind the clouds and lots of gorgeous, spring home accessories filling the high street.  Updating your home and giving it a quick revamp will immediately make it feel uplifting and will indulge your senses with a vibrant, zesty spring charm.  Spring is a time for rejuvenation and renewal, and this is one of the many reasons why the idea of a thorough clean of the house, from top to bottom, is so popular at this time of year.

Now I know revamping and refreshing your home can feel like a challenge after those long, dreary winter months; but believe me when I say any changes don’t have to be expensive or difficult to do.  Just a simple introduction of spring home accessories will work magic in your interior and brighten your home decor.  Here, at Puji, we have done the thinking for you and complied a quick, 5 step guideline to help get you on your way to enjoying your spring home.

Spring Home Accessories – Updating Your Interior this Season1)      Freshen the air! Make your home smell of the outdoors and you will wake up wanting to take a deep breath ready to start the day.  Add spring scents around your home and bathroom, and in the evening light some scented candles.  Here, at Puji, we have an enchanting scented candle and diffuser range.  Our favourite for spring is the Meadow flower candle which sits inside a gorgeous decorative glass tumbler, filled with dried flowers.  The scent is a warm mix of rose, jasmine and lily of the valley which is beautifully balanced with a spring time, gentle citrus twist.

Spring Home Accessories – Updating Your Interior this Season2)      Give in to the charms of colour!  Be bold this spring and add colour to your home.  You could paint a feature wall in a fresh colour, or if you don’t want to get the paints out, find inspiration in small accessories and soft furnishings.  Add some orange or lime cushions to your leather sofa and you will be amazed at the transformation.  Take away the heavy, chunky throw you have draped over your occasional chair and replace it with a lightweight and delicate one.  Simple changes are very effective and shouldn’t be ignored as they can have as much impact as those bigger changes.

 

Spring Home Accessories – Updating Your Interior this Season3)      Make the most of your lighting! Lighting is very often overlooked when updating a room, but simply changing an old lamp or adding a stylish floor lamp will transform your room in a heartbeat.  This spring is still showcasing quirky and retro inspired lighting, as well as Moroccan styled filigree lamps which offer soft diffused lighting to make those brighter evenings feel cosy. Your living room armchair will take on new life just by popping a floor lamp behind it, as suddenly you’ll have created a cosy reading corner.  In the bedroom, new bedside lamps will create a focal point, especially if you look for table lamps that project ambient lighting and patterns through cut out shapes or hand hammered holes.

Spring Home Accessories – Updating Your Interior this Season4)      All things metallic! The ‘in’ trend for 2014 is the introduction of gold and silver shades when styling your home. However, when it comes to your home accessories think brass, copper, pewter, aluminium and nickel.  Choose items that reflect your style and personality from hand-crafted statues to cool, contemporary decorative bowls.  Our leafy aluminium serving bowl has had a great response and is made from textured leaves cast in aluminium and then finished in a rich, matt nickel.  This striking bowl has beautiful detailing and is great for serving nibbles in style.

Spring Home Accessories – Updating Your Interior this Season5)      Get nostalgic with Vintage and Retro! Spring interiors are all about turning the clock back, and adding colour through timeless vintage and retro designs.  Instead of changing your entire interior scheme, add accessories that are associated with this vintage and retro theme.  Incorporating these themes into your home will give you the freedom to introduce colour, texture, prints and patterns.  Move away from the mundane decorating themes and look for the following: vintage styled colourful clocks that will team up as wall art, vintage inspired bright cushions and geometric patterns. Add some colourful storage trunks to your decor and you’ll be on your way to creating a cosy, warm and stunning interior that will easily take you into summer.

How to Achieve a Vintage Inspired Living Room

Vintage living room furniture is more sought after then ever and all things vintage are high in the fashion stakes.   Vintage interiors have made a comeback and interior designers are enjoying the revival of these quirky items and giving them a modern day twist. Going vintage means adding colour, and introducing a mix and match style.  The old style plain interiors painted cream and filled with muted tones are in the distance and this year it’s all about adding layers of warmth and personality.

Vintage refers to items that were produced from the 1920s to the 1960s and is often referred to as retro.  Modern trends focus on the designs from these eras and update them to suit the contemporary household.  Worn leather, excessive use of fabric and classic styled furniture are back and here to stay!

To introduce a touch of vintage and retro style into your living area you will need to look for vintage living room furniture along with accessories to give this space a new appeal.  Vintage styled furniture doesn’t have to be from generations gone; you’ll find some great revival pieces on the high street.  Look for furniture pieces that look old in terms of style but have been renewed with a modern use of materials and textures.  For a complete vintage living room look for faded floral fabrics, traditional styled occasional chairs that are super comfy, add a colourful mix of cushions and distressed furniture items and your vintage interior will be complete.

To achieve a vintage inspired living room just remember a few key points:

Vintage Living Room Furniture – Get the Antique Style look1)      Vintage renewal has made the occasional chair a must-have buy. Start your make over with your seating, and introduce a new armchair – and you’re on your way to creating that vintage make over.  Look for styles that look warm and comfortable and, of course, to go vintage you need to go for worn leather or an upholstered faded floral chair.  Layer quilts and large oversized cushions on your retro armchair for extra snugness.

 

Vintage Living Room Furniture – Get the Antique Style look2)      The retro colour combination of orange and brown will work well in a living space as long as it’s well executed and not overdone.  Introduce these colours through the use of accessories and soft furnishings.

 

 

Vintage Living Room Furniture – Get the Antique Style look3)      If you have a country themed living room then mixing these floral accents with vintage furniture items, such as a rustic coffee table or distressed painted sideboard, will give the space a vintage homely feel.

 

 

Vintage Living Room Furniture – Get the Antique Style look4)      If you have a contemporary space, then bridge the gap between contemporary and retro by adding mix and match statement items such as a floor lamp, colourful cushions and a statement leather armchair.

 

5)      Bold, vintage styled wallpaper is a very effective and easy way to create some retro decor.  To keep your living space feeling modern, and not overdone, just hang it on one feature wall.

Vintage Living Room Furniture – Get the Antique Style look6)      Don’t forget to add vintage accessories to complete your living room.  Anything can work: from a patchwork quilt draped over the sofa, to mismatched items displayed on a bookcase, groupings of framed family photographs, to vintage inspired cushions; it’s these final touches that will bring your vintage furniture and decor to life.

Why the Vintage Style is a top Look for 2014

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014

The look for 2014 is vintage and retro! Vintage furniture is making a comeback and in a BIG way! Vintage and limited edition pieces are highly sought after for the home and this year designers are focusing on nostalgia and sentiment to guide interiors. Instead of settling on one fixed look, designers are choosing versatile, neutral bases and using big impact accent furniture and occasional seating to update and transform decors.

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014Many designers feel that modern, minimalist interiors are often lacking warmth and comfort and have returned to tradition, giving old, classic furniture a new edge.  We all want and need our homes to feel comfortable, and so this return to traditional styles has meant that designs from eras gone by can be revisited and updated.  2014 will see some fabulous revival collections and redesigned vintage furniture pieces on the high street.

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014Accent furniture is a perfect way of introducing a touch of ‘vintage’ into your existing interior and you can add those much needed splashes of colour with retro accessories.  This fresh and lively trend will invigorate your home and your interior will have that homely feel that we all desire after a long day at work.

 

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014Key vintage furniture items, such as retro seating and painted furniture, are ideal choices when searching for these focal accent pieces.  Why not update a dreary corner with a new leather chair? No longer are modern, clean styles fashionable, instead look for a leather chair that has the appearance of having been passed down over the years.  Worn in, gorgeous real leather will look warm and inviting and don’t forget that the beauty of leather is that it makes you want to touch it…so you’ll find yourself instantly drawn to your new seat. Natural woods and lighter wood tones are also making a comeback from the dark ages of previous trends.  Natural wood furniture will give a room a fresh feel, so try incorporating a chair design that has a wooden frame or add a rustic side table next to your chair to brighten things up.

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014If leather is not for you then add an animal printed accent.  Animal prints are still fashionable in 2014, so why not introduce a retro styled occasional chair that has been upholstered in a trendy animal fabric? Animal prints or natural hides in small doses will bring an interior to life and if it’s tasteful it won’t run the risk of overkill!

 

Vintage Furniture – Why Antique Style Furnishings is a Top Look for 2014Give the living room or even your hallway some vintage storage and introduce a painted chest of drawers.  2014 will see painted furniture everywhere and designers have taken classic styled pieces and transformed them by painting them in more than one colour.  Chests with multi coloured drawers and different styled handles are very fashionable as are rustic coffee tables and painted trunks.  Every vintage interior needs a trunk and your guests will be guessing what wonderful items you have tucked away inside!
