Hot Metal

7th June 2015

With Dulux announcing Copper Blush as their colour of the year in 2015, there are numerous ways to adds metallic accents to the home which add warmth and a touch of luxury. Whether it’s impactful lighting from Tom Dixon or the beautiful craftsmanship of the Real Good chair from Heal’s, our love of copper sees no signs of abating. When it comes to paint, Copper Blush is a perfect take on the metallic trend, but adopting a chalkier, cooler finish than the metallic family. The colour really comes alive when combined with pink, clay toned neutrals, crisp white as well as beautiful Carrara marble (see separate post here) and shimmering metallics.

Marvellous Marble

When you think of marble, oligarchs, glitzy hotels and bad taste come to mind. Not any more – marble interiors and accessories are big news for 2015. Whether it’s the elegance of a Carrara marble splashback in the kitchen paired with deep indigo units from British Standard or a two tone monochrome bathroom in black and white marble, there are plenty of marbles to suit all tastes. Try Stone Age for a wide variety. This is a look that never dates and has the longevity and is hardwearing enough to avoid frequent replacement. If you are looking for just a hint of marble try a copper lamp teamed with a touch of marble or the luxe drinks trolley from Oliver Bonas. H&M also has a good selection of marble homewares this season. I am loving this look and when it comes to the next round of decorating, marble will be at the top of my list.

Recently I have been spending a lot of time looking at chairs and have to say the Peacock Cane Chair is one of my favourites. Gaining popularity in the 60s and 70s, peacock chairs are made from rattan / wicker, making them perfect for outdoor use. They can look glamorous as well as ornate. These colourful ones are from The Family Love Tree who have a large selection.

Available in adult, tween and child versions in numerous colours. Each chair comes with a sun resistant cushions with its bold cane print.  Here are a few of my favourites.
