    Create Your Very Own Retreat With Natural & Organic

    Thursday, June 04, 2015

    In a fast paced world where technology, work, family commitments and socialising play a major part in our every day lives, there’s a growing desire among us to escape to a world of relaxation, peace and calm. While there are many ways to achieve this through running, meditation, yoga, or a well deserved holiday, what better place is there to consistently escape to for such delish relaxation, than your own home? There’s a growing trend seen among interior designs that incorporate natural and organic elements into the home, which help foster a welcoming blissful environment. Below are 5 ways you can bring the natural and organic beauty into your home.

    Live the Alfresco Lifestyle

    Natural light and open views in the home are by far one of the most soothing elements you can add to your home. Weatherwell aluminium shutters allow you to fuse the indoors with the outdoors. A favourite among high-end architects and designers for their strength and beauty, Weatherwell aluminium shutters are low maintenance, offering protection from the elements all year round. Available in multiple applications, sliders and multi-fold are by far the best options at opening up your living space to the natural environment.

    Timber Plantation Shutters

    Highprofile timber plantation shutters are 100% organic and renewable, requiring less energy to be produced than any other inorganic material. This makes them a favourite among designers and decorators alike who are looking to add that sustainable natural look and feel into a room.

    With beautiful grains providing a fine texture and flawless finish, a truly bespoke product, timber shutters can be customised to suit individual styles.




    Green Plants and Floral

    Gone are the fake plastic plants that collect dust and become quickly off trend. Try adding real plants such as succulents or hardy indoor plants, which require minimal maintenance and fuss.  They bring an evergreen natural appeal to the room, softening lines and cleaning the air at the same time! Or if you prefer a bit more colour, cut flowers are always a delight. Providing the senses not only with a visual beauty but also a subtle smell of floral. Or try a bit of Zen, and create an indoor Zen garden, perfect for contemplation.




    Natural Timber Furniture Pieces

    Individualised natural wood furniture is making their way back into the home. From antique to chic, rustic to modern styles, the beauty of natural timber furniture in the home are set to remain on trend over the next few years. 




    Earthy Colours

    Captivate your senses with earthy colours. Earthy colours in either warm or cool browns, tans, creams, greys, greens and orange are taken from mother nature herself. Known to provide a relaxing vibe, these colours are great in the bedroom for creating that special retreat.

    Baby Room Design Tips

    Friday, June 26, 2015

    So you’re expecting a new addition to the family! Gone are the days where dresser draws and cardboard boxes were deemed suitable nap-time abodes for children (trust us we’ve seen it done!) We know it can be a stressful and daunting task, so here are some pointers to help you get inspired!













    Find a feature piece first

    It’s often easier and more effective to decide a theme for your nursery when you let it start from a piece of furniture or art you love. Find something you think is truly special and unique then take your cues from that.











    Make it personal

    No one wants to spend the time and effort into their nursery to have it turn out like a generic ikea advertisement.  One of our favourite ways to add a uniquely personal touch is to get any other kids in the family to do some art specifically for the baby. This is also a great way to help them get excited about the new addition to the family.










    You have to be able to enjoy it too!

    While this room may not be specifically for you, the odds are you are going to be spending quite a lot of time here over the next few months! So it’s important to make sure that you actually enjoy the space you’re creating as well.  Throw in a comfortable rocking chair or sofa so that you’ll be at ease during the long days (and nights) ahead.

    Don't be afraid to be bold

    Too often people think that nurseries have to be soft, neutral tones. This isn’t the case.  A combination of prominent and discreet colours can give a room warmth and life whilst not being so loud as to remove the atmosphere of relaxation.
