Taking down walls – 8 things you nee...
Posted on 27.06.2018
If you love open plan, but it doesn’t work for the home you have, then try connecting the spaces with the furniture and decoration.
If you love decorative impact but you don’t want to re-decorate every surface right now, try something new. We have a great idea for you.
If you are torn between curtains or blinds and you don’t know where to start, why not try both with the same fabric choice to unite your space.
This is how we created a fresh scandi industrial space with some simple solutions.
An epically comfortable corner sofa, killer curtains and a new decorative tape to pull this broken plan kitchen/diner together at the heart of a modern family home.
This is the Eden corner sofa by Sofa workshop making an amazing new tv nook off the dining area, where the oversized garage use to be before we knocked through. The sofa fills that space perfectly adding some much needed relaxation space to this fresh family home. The oatmeal house linen covers keep it relaxed and natural.
Connect the spaces with a fabric choice - this lush green fabric with a retro geo vibe from Hillary's is a great way to add some personality and opting to go for made to measure roman blinds and curtains gives a great through line.
Add a literal through-line with this amazing new product from Haru - Stuck on Design. It's like a giant washi tape, comes in loads of different colours and thicknesses and it goes on a dream.
Use a credit card to smooth it out as you go and don't be afraid to try diagonals and overlaps. All you need is a good stanley blade and a steady hand. It's a whole new take on wall borders!
Lots of greenery, an abundance of cushions and black lighting/frames flesh out the scandi indsutrial look.
The family already owned this pine sideboard and we gave it a punchy new lease of life with a pot of emerald green chalk paint and new black handles to give an industrial edge.
Even the artwork, based on a fig tree in the garden, was created using the Haru tape with inexpensive black frames. The roman blinds are also a great option for a kitchen to soften the hard lines.
