It’s been a little while since I wrote my last blog post. It’s been a busy time behind the scenes, with some new exciting blogs coming your way. And to start off I have guest Blogger LIV for Interiors to guide us through 5 ways to bring your walls to life at home, combining Laura Felicity Design products.
The right wallpaper can completely transform a room or space, enabling you to let your personality shine through with the right combinations of colour, texture, tone and design. Here are some of LIV for Interiors favourite ways to pair your walls with the right furnishings and accessories (from Laura Felicity Design), helping to give your home a sparkling and refreshing makeover this Summer.
5 Ways To Bring Your Walls To Life At Home
Think about your blinds
You may be more partial to stylish, contemporary blinds than traditional curtains, most obviously in your bathroom. To make things as light and airy as possible, something cool and bright with subtle, muted pastel tones is ideal, like this duck egg-coloured Nest Egg Window Blind (made to measure from £135). It’s perfect for Spring/Summer and will go beautifully against clean white walls, for a look that’s as fresh as Spring itself.
Keep your colour scheme consistent
When pairing wallpaper and furnishings, you should always try and add splashes of an overall hue throughout a space, so that it’s recognisable and visually pleasing to the eye, without jarring or clashing. The Nest Egg wallpaper works well again here; coupled with a simple blue vase that complements the design’s eggs and clock face, the look is offset by flourishes of white and brown for a calming, natural theme.
Make it fun!
There’s no reason your walls or windows should have to be bland or boring; on the contrary, they can be as creative and quirky as you like! Think about which room would best suit a design that’s a little more interesting, such as a children’s room, nursery, kitchen or bathroom. In these spaces, you can get away with splashing more of your personality around, making things playful and colourful throughout the home.
Get the lighting right
The correct lampshade can go a long way towards setting the mood in any room. This Dotty Bird option in rose pink (from £50) will help to keep things comfy and cosy, while the delicate illustrative design is just the thing for Spring and Summer, evoking a sense of nature and new beginnings. Plus, it comes in plum and teal too, so will look the part against a variety of backdrops.
Accessorising is king
Simply put, accessories are perhaps the most effective way of making your walls pop with personality. From Pretty Flower cushions to Sugar and Tea art prints, the possibilities are endless when getting your home’s feel just right. Indeed, by pairing the right tones, colours, designs and materials, you can ensure that each part of your overall interior vision ends up looking exactly the way you want it to, throughout Summer and beyond.
