Do you call the city centre home? Struggling with your interiors? We’ve got you covered. To kick off our very first blog post, we want it to be fun and informative. We’re going to show our lovely followers some interior design proposals for a modern pad located in the city hustle and bustle. Also, we’ll explain the rationale behind some of our selections, and we’ll even highlight a few design trends for 2017!
Let’s start with one of the most important rooms in this pad: the lounge!
This design is bang on trend with accents of rich sage green. If you paid attention to the 2017 Pantone trend colour predictions, you’ll be very aware that green is hot, hot, hot! We’ve combined this opulent colour with neutrals and subtle pattern to ensure that this strong hue takes centre stage.
The sofa, mid-century styled chair, curtains and cushions are all bespoke creations, made exclusively by our Templepatrick design studio, whilst the marble top side table (marble is STILL huge right now!), is available at La Redoute.
Art provides so much added visual stimulation to a space. In this instance, we decided to use art to reinforce the use of green in this interior.
This abstract piece is by the very talented Fintan Whelan.
Next up is the Master Bedroom!
There’s no doubt about it: dark hues make a statement, and we love the depth and atmospheric qualities that a dark, inky blue wall, can bring to a space. This linen, textured wallpaper will be used on all 4 walls for added visual impact and can be picked up at Villa Nova. We think dark hues look amazing when paired with metallics. This is why we’ve chosen this eye-catching geometric mirror in copper.
For consistency, and to complement the lounge, we have continued to include punctuations of mid-century modern pieces by using statement side tables available from Dar Lighting.
One of our favourite elements is the industrial inspired floor lamp, with a vintage edison bulb. Its height helps to draw the eye UP, it prevents the room from looking too one dimensional and adds buckets of charm. This can be snapped up at Gallery.
The bespoke chair in steel blue is quite simply stunning, and with custom designed wardrobes, a custom headboard and upholstered bed base (with additional storage) all designed and built by Bowman Design Company, this bedroom is the epitome of luxury.
The Second Bedroom!
For the second bedroom, we’ve taken inspiration from a New York loft style interior. With cool greys, geometric accents, a warm pop of colour acts to underpin a thoroughly contemporary vibe.
The different textures and patterns used in this interior ensures that the use of grey doesn’t dominate. This prevents the space from appearing cool and uninviting. One of the best ways to soften a contemporary, industrial inspired design, is to introduce texture. We love this fur throw available from Dunelm Mill.
We’ve injected a warm shot of colour in this space via cushions and art. This is a great way to add instant eye candy to a design. Plus, in the future if you fancy a quick change, items like cushions and art can be easily replaced!
