The Look: East Hampton Chic!
Fresh crisp whites contrasted against navy geometric patterns, softened by warm grey paint tones and natural textiles.
For the bed:
Warm beige and grey throws for the end of the bed to soften the crisp contrast of the navy and white..
A sheepskin rug for under your bedroom chair, as well as some rattan baskets for storing reading material/additional throws for cold Winter evenings.
Bring the geometric theme one step further with a rug for beside the bed..
Tan leather hanging mirror for over the dresser/on each side of the bed..
Along with some stone or glass lamps
To add in some more femininity, we would accessorise with some candles and vase of fresh flowers etc for your dressing and bedside tables.
Where have the last few months gone to? Looks like we fell off the blogging wagon there for a few a little while and completely missed out on a Winter post. But not to worry, we’re back now and with one of the season’s biggest trends! Blush. And what better time to embrace this trendy shade than Spring, with its many shades of pink blossoms adorning trees and shrubs outside our windows.
Blush pink has been around for a while and is a colour that isn’t going anywhere soon. It’s ability to stand the test of time is because of how effortlessly it can blend into your home. It compliments beautifully with the many shades of grey we’ve seen used in the last few years, as well as green and navy –both of which are very big this year. It looks marshmallow delicious against pure and off whites, and is a perfect match with golds and brass.
But let us not forget the men of the house, and how they may not share the same love for this, the most feminine of shades. Granted, it should be used with caution. Too much of a rush of blush to the head could cause you to feel as though you are trapped inside some 1970’s prawn cocktail fantasy/nightmare. So here we have shared some more subtle and sophisticated ways in which to incorporate this delicious shade into your home, so you can sneak it in without your man ever even noticing!
Sneak an odd cushion or throw into the bedroom or team it with grey to add a subtle “pop”. Both items available from www.roomswithaview.co.uk
