Sunny Shades For Your Interiors and Exteriors
Days are getting longer and warmer, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of spring with the blooming trees and the alluring sounds of the birds singing in the early hours of morning. We love the clear blue skies and the sunny weather so this week we used Spring Meadow as our interior and exteriors inspiration. Bring those beautiful sunny shades into your home by adding Spring Meadow inspired décor and accessories.
This week we have put together some fantastic pieces to help you let the outdoors in and enjoy the sunny shades even when it’s raining outside.
Draw inspiration from delicate buttercups to make your bedroom feel warm and welcoming. For the base colour go with cool greys and hints of dusty blues. This will add a feeling of calm and tranquillity to your room. Our Polka Dot Duvet Sets are made from 100% cotton to ensure a great night sleep.
For accentuating the spring feeling in your bedroom go for yellow and gold coloured accessories that will add contrast to the neutral colour scheme. In case you have a chandelier in your bedroom as the main source of light, you can easily update the look of it simply by changing the crystals. Choosing champagne or gold coloured crystals will add a sense of sophistication and charm to the whole room. These elegant colours will compliment your chandelier no matter what shade the frame is.
Gold accessories like vases and candle holders will fit in perfectly. To finish this look and add a springtime feel to your bedroom put fresh cut flowers, such as daffodils or yellow tulips on your nightstand or dressing table.
Retro Living Room
Why not add that retro feeling to your living room this spring? Create a cosy corner where you can enjoy a good book and a cuppa when the sun is hiding behind the clouds. Eye catching pieces, such as a yellow armchair or a sofa will add a point of interest to your room and definitely brighten your mood. Grey cushions will compliment this look and make you feel extra snug.
Go for retro designs when choosing a ceiling light for this style. Our Philips Ecomoods Ceiling Pendant in Orange is inspired by quirky 70’s designs and is a great pick. It won’t just add a point of interest to your room, but will also help to save on energy bills. Or put up some sunny shades where existing fixtures are for a cheaper alternative.
Cyan goes well with yellow. So try to combine these two tones when recreating this sunny look. No need to go all out, just a few little accent of cyan or blue is enough to add contrast. Vintage chests and boxes will make a great style feature and add extra storage space to the room.
Have you already thought of your outdoor spaces and getting them ready for the summer season? If not, now’s the time. Get your garden ready for those delightful sunny evenings, because nothing is better than a family dinner outdoors.
Make sure your exteriors are illuminated so you can enjoy the warm evenings even when the sun has gone down. Outdoor wall lights and post lights will not only light up your garden area, but also add a sense of security. Choose fittings in white to create a contemporary look. Our Arun outdoor Wall Light with sunny shades has a beautiful design and is IP44 rated for safe outdoor use. For larger back yards we suggest post lights that will fill your garden will light in the dark evenings.
Garden furniture made of natural materials, such as wicker or wood will fit in nicely and create a homely atmosphere. Add exteriors plants and decorate the table with fresh floral arrangements for those special outdoor dinners.
