We love seeing how our products are used within your homes, so we sent a selection of items to some of our favourite lifestyle bloggers and asked them to style them in unique ways. Here is Gabby from Flat 15's beautiful home. She chose our Ivoire Brass Hanging Planter, Priti Gold Deco Pineapple and Catrice Wooden Based Lantern. We had a chat with Gabby about the inspiration behind her choices...
Firstly, thank you for creating such beautiful lifestyle scenes using a selection of our home accessories – what drew you to this particular set of items?
I thought the gold pineapple was a playful décor touch and retro too (two themes I am always drawn to).
The light wooden lantern is very simple and understated. I love its airy feel and recently I have been going for lighter woods as a trend for the new year.
Please tell us how you incorporated the items into your home.
I decided to place the hanging brass planter in my dining room. In this space, the walls are painted pink and there are lots of green accents, so I thought adding a vibrant green plant would be a great contrast to the backdrop of the room.
The gold pineapple is such a fun piece! I decided to style it on my bar cart because the pineapple added a retro and playful accent and also matched the gold details of the bar cart.
The wooden base lantern to me is a fresh and airy piece. I decided to style it on my coffee table to bring some dimension to the table but still keep things light and not too heavy. I think this is a perfect piece for the New Year!
Where do you look for your inspiration?
I look everywhere! Mostly I am inspired by travel and fashion. I find so much inspiration by visiting new places and seeing well designed hotels and restaurants, typically these commercial spaces are on the forefront of design and it is a great inspiration for me.
I also take notice to what is happening in fashion because I find that it usually connects to art and interior design.
With the festive season now over, how do you make your home feel refreshed and ready for the new year?
My favourite way to refresh my home is by adding simple greens to my décor. Adding touches of green plants will add natural brightness and vibrant colour to a room, which creates an overall refreshing feel.
Your home must be a treasure trove of inspiration and design. What is your favourite item?
It’s very hard to choose one particular piece but I would have to say that a favourite of mine is my classic handmade Berber rug that I found in Marrakesh when I visited two years ago.
I think I love it so much because the whole process of finding it in the Moroccan Souk was a great adventure and I also absolutely love how it looks in my home.
How would you sum up your interiors style in 3 words?
Eclectic, Understated, Chic
Finally, what are your top tips for introducing a glamorous touch to the home?
I think that the easiest way to add a little glamour to your home is through metallic accents. I am currently loving copper and brass is always a classic go to metal, but whichever your preference, adding small metallic additions in your home will add instant glamour.
Another way to add glamour is through great imagery. Styling your coffee table with books that have beautiful covers is a chic and easy way to add glamour at home!
