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.

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 – Aubergine

This weeks colour watch… Aubergine.

One of our favourite colours to work with currently at Murray Hurst interiors is the complex and brooding colour – Aubergine.You may think it seems like a deep, rich choice, but when mixed with complementary colours such as yellow tones, particularly the warm tones of ochre and also sharp lime green, it can create a beautifully striking scheme. Aubergine, like its lighter cousin purple, can introduce a regal element to a room and when teamed with metal finishes such as copper, chrome and gold it oozes sophistication and luxury. This colour has signified wealth, power and opulence since at least the time of the Roman Republic, so lets keep the power of aubergine evolving in our designs and indulge ourselves in aubergines rich tones!

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.
