We all have bookshelves and display units in our homes that no doubt function well, but do they look good? Is it possible for such a piece of furniture to look good and function well? I give a big resounding absolutely, yes! Shelving units can not only function well but can also look amazing when they are thoughtfully styled and curated to house your treasured items, book collection, art or family photos, decor items, nik naks collected during travels or passed down to you from loved ones. I’m not sure about you but I see bookshelves or any flat furniture surface as a perfect opportunity to create updates that then freshen up my home giving a whole new look.
Drum roll, please……. The Pantone colour of 2022 is Pantone 17-3938 Very Peri.
Very Peri is a blue with a red-violet undertone. We know from a colour psychology perspective that blues emote feelings of rest, tranquillity and calm. I wonder if this colour was chosen for this reason. An opportunity to speak positive calm over what we hope will be a better year than the 2021 that we have just come through.
When it comes to decorating the interior of our homes, furniture fills a lot of the footprint of the home so it’s important to take the time to select the right pieces of furniture that will suit the space, add value to how the space serves you and also ensure the pieces chosen visually work together harmoniously and collectively to make the interior look that you are wanting to achieve.
Have you ever been at a party or gathering and found yourself seated in one spot and then moving closer to someone you’re conversing with, so you can hear them? This is because we like to feel close and to be heard and often in social settings noise is a common occurrence which makes hearing conversations harder.
Now that the most wonderful season is upon us I just wanted to share a different approach to decorating your home for the Christmas holiday’s.
Firstly let me start by saying that Christmas is a time for celebration and decorating our homes should be part of this too and there is no real right or wrong way to decorating, instead it’s about creating a beautiful space that will hold the special times had and memories made over your Christmas season.
