Make space for style

As much as we believe in simplicity, there are sometimes corners or spaces in a home that need a little more attention. Spending more time at home, you may have found yourself noticing areas and details that you just want to spruce up or turn into something more practical. We have the perfect solution for that.

To furnish the odd spaces, the troublesome corners or the bland entry halls with a little more life, warmth or even purpose, we have a range of hints and a variety of styles to match.

Keep scrolling for useful tips on making the spaces in your home complement your lifestyle.

  1. Create a tranquil space for cosy reading.

Taking four simple steps, you can turn a stark corner into a comfy nook – a sweet escape for quiet reading.

Step 1:  Choose a snug, tufted armchair or occasional chair that is perfect for curling up in. (This may also be your moment to strut with just a dash of drama, if you wish. Opt for an occasional chair with some flamboyance and flare). 

Step 2. Combine ambience and pragmatism by choosing a light source for easy reading while adding visual warmth. Floor lamps are ideal for adding height and mounted lights add accents to an empty wall.

 

Step 3. Add a soft throw or blanket. Splurge on quality fabric that will give extra warmth and comfort but also consider a colour to complete the scheme.

Step 4. Escape into a book worth reading.

2. Beguile your guests with beauty.

 

Entryways and corridors are often narrow spaces that get neglected. Yet, first impressions can do so much for a home and make guests feel welcome, if not intrigued or entertained.

Consoles and mirrors are your trusted friends in this area.  Enlarge and brighten these smaller spaces by placing mirrors strategically to reflect and play with light. Consoles add storage or display room while still giving way for traffic or movement around them. Don’t let small spaces cramp your style, express yourself in a combination of consoles, mirrors and accessories.

 

3. Branch out for convenience.

Turn a scattered mess of an entryway into a subtle display of everyday living. A hall tree is the practical solution to a busy home, adding understated elegance. Its height and slender width mean a hall tree can fit many narrow or irregular spaces – ideal for entryways or passages leading to the front door.

Choose a tree with enough hooks to hold each family member’s paraphernalia and make cleaning up an effortless affair. Keep the space tidy and stylish by hanging coats and tucking boots, shoes, toys and more away. Give your hall tree a loving friend and complete the scene with a potted plant for liveliness.

 

4. Energise with Runners

The floor is a dutiful space that is often overlooked. Cover it with a richly hued, boldly patterned runner and inject vigour into a room. Play with the striking designs to add rhythm and energy to different areas or to guide the eye around to make the space seem wider.

5. Work it!

Turn any spot into a mini home office with simplistic, practical and modular furniture. We have done the work for you so you can focus on what really matters – being productive and effective without compromising on style.  Combine the three fundamentals of desk, chair and supportive chair  to get the perfect office for you.

Kit out your space with the modular range of shelves, work desks and display units that can be re-combined to suit different working and living situations.

6. Go big and stay home

Fill a taller area with an impressive dresser that loves to give you space. A dresser is the bigger brother to the console table and is ideal for storage and keeping things in reach.

Add a sense of nostalgia to your home in combining a dresser with mirrors, frames and accessories. Turn an uninviting hallway into a spot of comfort and convenience for everyday living.

7. Time to score.

Every home has an area you don’t talk about – that troubling cranny or awkward corner that just doesn’t seem to sit right with anyone.

Scores of furniture pieces are designed for precisely these problem areas. Fill the void with a corner shelf unit, triangular cabinet, desk or seating that nestles right into space.

Combine colour, texture, lines and styles to create a focal point that is warm and inviting.
