Our lighting and accessories guide will help you and that special lady in your life create a haven of happiness for the home. Adding some simple ceiling fittings and accent lighting to any room will instantly lift the mood and atmosphere. Then just choose some complimenting ornaments and soft furnishings to complete the look.
Interior Gift Ideas : Blushing Boudoir
Breakfast in bed is a must on Mothers Day morning if you’re still living with your mum. Or if you want to treat the mother of your child to a snuggle and some grub. A glass chandelier suspended central above the bed will give optimum illumination for this morning treat. Our new Jessica 5 Light Ceiling Pendant features dainty leaf metal branches entwined amongst brushed cream finished arms that reveal pretty tulip glass shades. The floral element will give any room a cheerful and playful character but we think waking up to this bouquet of beauty is a must. So install this piece in the bedroom for a special wake-up call. Extra lighting is key for ambience and accent purposes, if your mums a night owl and enjoys a good read in bed, we suggest shopping for a bedside table lamp. Table lamps will give a pool of light to a specific are and shaded options can create a diffused glow which eliminates a dazzling illumination. Our Square Base Metallic Medium Table Lamp fits a range of shades to create a more bespoke lamp. We chose our simple yet elegant 12 inch Knife Pleated Shade in Lavender. A pop of pastel shade gives a tranquil and calm aura to a room and when lit, gives a soothing glow, perfect for hard-working mums.
Your mum’s blushing boudoir wouldn’t be complete without some new bedding. Choose soft and simple tones such as creams and whites with just a hint of a pastel tone. Our Jenna Bedlinen collection features a dusky pink silk panel framed with a vintage cream lace border on a fresh white sheet. The combination of silk and cotton gives a relaxed glamour approach which is ideal and less overwhelming for mums to sink into after a hard days work. If you’re planning on serving breakfast in bed why not get a new serving tray and dig out your best china to complete the Mothers Day experience.
Interior Gift Ideas : Delicious Dressing Room
Some mums are lucky enough to have space for a separate dressing or powder room. A simple pantry or walk-in wardrobe can double up as a dressing room with the correct lighting and furniture. Or simply use a screen to divide a room and convert one side into a small powder room. Again lighting is key, when dressing, applying make-up and styling hair ensure you have appropriate lighting. Again, every room needs general lighting and a dressing room is now exception. A pendant or chandelier central to the room will give a large space of light. Choose incandescent or LED bulbs that will give a natural daylight glow. Of course, a dressing room won’t be the biggest room in the house, therefore a large 5 or 8 armed ceiling fitting might overwhelm the interior. Instead choose a 3 or 4 armed fitting, mist of our chandelier collections are available in more compact sizes such as our new Chateau range. The simple yet sophisticated piece gives a classic yet fresh addition whilst the curved glass shades add glamour.
Bar lights are ideal when illuminating mirrors. It’s important to illuminate the while face when applying make up. The most common advice is to have a pair of wall lights either side of the mirror to give an even light. but for a more Hollywood glam interior why not choose a strip light. Our Tasmieno Strip light will give a full illumination whilst giving a fun and glamorous edge. This fitting can also be installed in the bathroom. Finally add some accessories, we chose a mannequin stand for displaying outfits or jewellery, or simply dress up with beads and feather boas as a feature. Add a touch of fun and frivolity especially for a powder room with our Feather Boa String Light, this can be draped along a shelf or bunched up into a vase as a pretty illuminated ornament.
Interior Gift Ideas : Luscious Lounge
Finally we focus on the lounge area. It’s not always easy to feminise this area of the home unless that special lady has a very tolerant partner. So we chose some simple touches with just the right amount of femininity. Revamp the settee by treating your mum to some new scatter cushions. Choose a mixture of colours and textures to create a layering effect. For our look book we went with out Roses Boudoir Cushion, normally associated with our Roses Bedlinen Range, this will give your seating area a touch of glamour. Layers of ruffle and pinched fabric roses are bunched together on this slim cushion giving an almost bouquet-like feeling. The gold finishes off the luxurious touch.
Again we’ve chosen another of our Mothers Day Inspired chandeliers, our Arielle Chandelier, a splendour of crystals and swirls. This piece will create cascading droplets of shimmering light around your room, each droplet reflects a soft light when lit, making this a show-stopping piece, perfect for your mum to boast about over a chat and a brew. We teamed this with our Mini Scratched Table Lamp in Chrome for more glitz and glam. Our new lamp collection boasts a sultry scratched ribbed finish which gives a rustic and shabby chic effect. Don’t forget an all important new mug for that cosy afternoon brew and a biscuit.
