Never underestimate the effectiveness of interior trimmings in pulling together a scheme, adding the all important finishing touches. Trimmings in the form of borders, braids, rope and cord can be added to scatter cushions, curtains, blinds and furniture to highlight accent colours, introduce new texture and add interest to plain fabrics and finishes. See this selection of just a handful of trimmings and tiebacks available to purchase from Murray Hurst Interiors.
In addition, the braids of this range also benefit a repellent treatment, that offers a better resistance to dirt and water.
Don’t be fooled in thinking painting a small room a light colour is the answer to making it feel bigger. Opt for colour and print to distract from its dimensions and create a theme. In particular a Cloakroom/ WC is an ideal room to be creative and playful. So push yourself out of your comfort zone and have some fun with colour and print. See our selection of favourite designs…
Over the next few weeks keep an eye out for our colour watch posts… From inspiring natural imagery to stylish interior spaces.
Imagery such as these are known as ‘concept images’ which convey and idea, mood and atmosphere which is the creative part of the design process. These images are then used to develop possible decorative and practical schemes. Even as an interior designer, it is important to feed your imagination with visual stimulation and reference solutions from concept images to develop ideas.
See our selection of concept image examples and how these can be used to develop finished interior schemes.
Our new find this month is ‘CASAMANCE’ a fabric and wallcovering supplier from France that has that certain “je ne sais quoi” (couldn’t resist!)
Providing us with superbly diverse ranges, modernising traditional designs, enough to wow everyone, no matter what your style!
One of our favourite collections here at Murray Hurst Interiors is Horizons – discovered today upon our rummaging. The collection is a modern take on traditional African fabrics, combining a woven effect with some glitzy colours.
Our top spot: Horizons Ikat Beige (above left) – A spot that even had me reconsidering plans for my own home.
A lively and contemporary range that draws on Parisian elegance. This collection provides a combination of florals, dog tooth and geometric designs using neutrals, metallics and vibrant colours throughout.
A sumptuous collection of plush velvets in a range of fun patterns and bold colours. We would not suggest you use these in a large quantity but they are great for creating a statement piece and adding a little punch to your designs.
With such a huge array of wallpapers and fabrics to choose from, from beige to bold, floral to geometric, dogtooth, metallics, sheers, stripes, it really would be difficult to not find something you love!
CASAMANCE definitely gets a big thumbs up from us and we look forward to using their designs in future projects.
