Wicker baskets are an economical and elegant way to add storage to any room. Baskets can be used to store and display books, architectural and decor magazines, toys, towels and blankets to name a few. Place a couple of small wicker baskets on the counter-tops in your kitchen to beautifully display and store your fruit and vegetables.
Contrast too, is a good way to bring out a blue. "Generally speaking, blue loves contrast," agrees Amy. The sharp juxtapositioning of cobalt paintwork with white trim and architraves is a classic. "Think neutrals like white tones and oatmeal, or richer colours such as mustard," she advises. Opposite shades on the colour wheel such as raspberry reds and corals can look terrific with shades of blue too, depending on your scheme.
The possibilities are endless. You can change your area rugs to reflect the seasons using warmer tones and fabrics for cooler months and lighter ones for the warmer days of the year. There are many lovely cotton, washable area rugs which are ideal for those homes with children. There really is no reason why a home with young children cannot also be a stylish one.
