Trim it up…

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.

A contemporary collection, emphazing pure design elements such as metal and modern colours for Alium tieback, dyed wood for Amazone tieback, carved wood for Eolia, and silver plate incorporating natural look pastel wiremesh strands for Lucia. Three leather tiebacks and three others combining wood and metal create effects to achieve a contemporary look and feel, associated with braids, fringes and piping cord.
Image
A selection of contemporary designs available in four natural linen colours: white, natural, brown and black. Cord and braided tieback blend originality and natural look. Other tassel tiebacks focus on material purity and woven leather effects. Waxed cotton details bring to this collection a distinctly modern feel.
Image
A trimmings collection at once feminine and sophisticated, designed as an inventive line of fashion accessories. Each model is composed of a set of satiny beads and rings, put together like necklaces, pendants or wide belts, making original and spectacular tiebacks. It exists in 15 trendy colours: from orange to ochre, from anise to chocolate, from violet to black, from pink to burgundy… the tones creating a bicoloured harmony with a truly striking effect.
Image
This collection of contemporary and stylised trimmings collection adorned with transparent, black and amber glass beads. The “Art Deco” style used in tie-backs and trimmings, gives to this collection a true identity and sense of style, with a subtle two-tone slant, presented in a range of 12 soft colours.
Image
This is a new complete collection of matt trimmings in Trevira CS, sober and contemporary, available in a range of 12 colours.
Image
Les ombrés, one of the two ranges of the trimmings collection OUTDOOR-INDOOR, are made of viscose yarns that can be washed with soft soap at temperatures up to 60°C.
In addition, the braids of this range also benefit a repellent treatment, that offers a better resistance to dirt and water.

 


Design Tip – Playful Prints

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…

Colour Watch – Teal

This week’s Colour Watch – Teal… At Murray Hurst Interiors, we like to add a touch of colour to a space to set a mood – we like to call it the ‘Jam’ in a scheme. The mellow tone of teal works beautifully with its complimentary colour, coral, or with a simple neutral setting. Interestingly, as well as bringing  a retro feel of the 60’s, like our previous colour watch, Aubergine, it too has a rich and regal feel. Teal is versatile in any room in the home, we find it works particularly well in the living room and bedroom.

Colour Watch – Coral

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.
