We’ve identified three of the latest trends taking the interiors world by storm:
- Peacock chic. Adorning rooms with extravagant peacock patterns and colours (for the less superstitious amongst us of course). Our favourites included Peacock crockery, arranging Peacock feathers in stylish vases, Peacock shaped mirrors, table cloths and pillows. This trend can run through every room in your house.
- Animals are big – but without the responsibility! No you don’t need to go to your local pound, or ring up your local Cats protection league. We’re talking statues, paintings, rugs. Everything from Bulldogs to Pelicans.
- Vintage – it’s going nowhere people so invest. Bottles, Fabrics & Lace, Furniture, Jewellery and Clothing. It’s soft-palettes crazy and it’s hear to stay, so why not embrace it.
Summer has sadly been and gone and we are in the long bank-holiday less run up to (dare we say it) Christmas. So it’s time for a big sort out in your home office. Anything requiring action – letters, bills etc. store in an on trend vintage style tray – wire mail boxes are very now. Fix a wall of panel pins in the wall above your desk and hang retro metal bulldog clips straight out of the 80’s, perfect for those to-do’s lists, receipts and pictures. You’ll be amazed what a design statement a bin makes – from bright colours to odd shapes, with or with lids, whatever takes your fancy.
Invest in a good office chair – one that looks great and is fully adjustable. It will last you a lifetime and from a back perspective is worth every penny.
Make sure you have plenty of storage – files, boxes etc, and file in subject and date order so you can easily find what you are looking for. Keep records for up to 6 years and shred anything older. Store your most important documents – passports and birth and marriage certificates in a fire proof box.
Now sit back and enjoy your hard work.
