Heritage Style lighting and accessories
This time of year you should start to look at interior themes that will take you through Summer to Autumn. Warmer designs that will give a cosy summer glow are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months when you can easily add warmer tones and textiles, ready for the festive season. But for now we'll keep to the Summer end, the Heritage trend can be adapted with any season. Spring Heritage offers a green pastel base, daffodil yellow accessories, spring floral designs with fresh chrome finishes. Summer is warmer with warm wood, tanned leather and vibrant oranges. Throw in some mustard together with brass and bronze finished to add to the vibrancy.
To get this look choose antique brass and bronze finished lighting. The Heritage trend combines elegant finishes with a touch of equestrian and some masculine traits. So choose elegant lighting pulled together with horse print accessories and masculine furniture such as leather chesterfield and chamberlain style chairs.
For this weeks look book we've pulled together some key lighting and accessories to show how simple and easy it is to recreate the Heritage look.
Heritage Style Lighting and Accessories : Equestrian Prints
Adding Horse motifs will create a regal tone in your chosen room. Don't go over the top with these designs as this can overwhelm the room and make it appear claustrophobic. However, you can use a horse print as a statement piece. Maybe a large horse print canvas rested on the mantel piece or a Horse sculpture placed on a side tale at your main entrance. For the bedroom create a statement piece with an equestrian inspired bed spread. Our Galloping Horses Duvet Set is the epitome of equestrian style, featuring a monochrome image of a trio of horse galloping through waves. Keep this as the main equestrian statement. We teamed this with our Madrid 5 Light Semi Flush Ceiling Light for a subtle elegant addition and introduced our classic Rame Antique Brass Table Lamp to compliment. choosing warm brass and bronze finished works well with this look s it's warm and inviting.
Heritage Style Lighting and Accessories : Tanned Leather
Warm tones can also be introduced through furniture and textiles, tanned leather gives both a warm and elegant touch. Especially when used together with regal designs such as Chesterfields and Chamberlain styles. The Heritage style works well in a home study or home office as this trend has a classy studious feel. To create a Heritage inspired study or home office choose antique inspired office accessories such as antique globes and vintage chairs. Our Checkers Green Bankers Task Lamp is a new arrival of ours, inspired by the original Bankers Lamp, an iconic lamp designed in 1901 for the use in clerical and bookkeeping offices. This lamp just oozes nostalgia , history and heritage, a solid brass base houses a long slim arm and a green glass shade that curves down giving a strong focused illumination.
Heritage Style Lighting and Accessories : Antique Additions
Complete the Heritage look with some brass, antique and bronze finished lighting. Adding brass tones will give a warm and welcoming feel as well as adding a nostalgic tone. Heritage is about regal designs together with a tweed country style so keep your accessories classic and traditional. We chose our Vintage Pendant Ceiling Light 1800s Style as the primary light for this look, this worn antique brass piece will add a rustic yet elegant touch. Industrial qualities also give this fitting a masculine feel. Team with an Antique brass table lamp, our Antique Brass Hobby Desk Task Lamp combines a practical design with a decorative flare.
