Interior decorating ideas with this seasones latest trends
1. Think Colour, colour and did I mention colour?
Inspired by nature, the colours for this season are subtle shades of greens and blues. Although these colours are gentle and restrained they represent growth and renewal. This season€s colours are serene, understated, gentle and relaxing. By using these colours you€ll create a feeling of peace and tranquility in your home while also lightening and refreshing any room.
Neutral colours are BIG.
* Your canvas must be a neutral shade like cream or taupe
* Bring in hints of colour with muted tones in blues, greens and even pink if you like
* A neutral coloured couch will keep your colour palette together
* Pieces of furniture you choose must have simple clean lines and shapes
* You can bring is a splash of colour here and there to brighten things up and you can use colour to bring focus to an area
2. Fun with Fabrics
During the warmer months ahead, use fabrics to add a touch of summer to your home.
Soft curtains and scatter cushions with patterns can transform the look of any room in your home.
Think bedrooms, a neutral palette (linen, curtains and walls) with floral scatter cushions and soft neutral curtains and a vase filled with freshly cut flowers from your garden all creating an inviting peaceful and tranquil haven for you.
Let€s not forget about your outside patio, during those warm summer nights there€s nothing better than entertaining your friends outside. Breath life into your patio by changing your scatter cushions on your patio furniture, make sure you€ve got pot plants filled with brightly coloured plants and light it up at night with romantic lanterns and candles.
This season, refined country florals in shades of greens, pinks, blues and creams are HOT.
Think simplicity. Think nature, think country and think pink, green and blue.
3. Rugs and Carpets
You' ve guessed it, carpets in neutral colours and bring in colour and texture with rugs. Use rugs to create visual interest.
4. Lighting up your home
Lighting is an important part of any home and by using the right lighting you can transform a room.
Chandeliers are making a HUGE comeback and are here to stay. Chandeliers add style, class and romance to any home and have a decorative purpose too.
A chandelier will add warmth and glamour to your kitchen, living room, dining room and yes even your bedroom.
Do yourself a favor and have a look at the magnificent range of furniture and lighting African Furniture Merchants have to offer, you won€t be disappointed.
