Slip covers often get a bad rap but they are truly wonderful things. They can serve as a means of changing your furniture’s look to reflect the seasons. These easily removed coverings allow you to have a sophisticated look without constantly worrying about people dirtying or spilling on your furniture. Slip covers are ideal for rooms used frequently by children. Above the white slip-covered couches gives the air of a casual, comfortable, easy yet sophisticated elegance.
Over the past year, shelf styling has taken over our Instagram feeds. In fact, just a cursory search for the term #shelfie fetches over 1.5 million posts. If you would like to jump on the shelfie trend, we recommend going for display units and other storage furnishings that feature an open shelving design. This is a great way to show off all your favourite knick-knacks while also bringing colour, personality, and life into the living room. To get that Pinterest-perfect look, arrange your items by height or colour. It’s also a good idea to take inspiration from the rooms colour palette so that your display ties in nicely with the overall look of the space.
We might be doing ourselves an injustice, though. "Basic colour theory always refers to blue being one of the cool colours, but that does not mean to say it will make your room feel cold," says Amy Conn, from Neptune design team. It is also a mistake to think that all blues are cold. "Colour temperature depends on the base and what tints and shades are added - for example, a blue with a yellow or red base will feel warmer than one with a purple or green base," she explains.
