  • My 5 Favourite New Things

    cushion with colourful botanical pattern

    I am definitely a furniture girl. I'll admit to not getting all that excited over cushions and candlesticks. However I am excited about the latest addition to our home accessory category: 'Preeti'. Named by me (because I think it's so preeti) this large 70 x 50 cushion is embellished with exotic botanicals and colourful birds. I've bought a couple for the bedroom and can't wait to see them in black surroundings flanked by antique gold furniture and lush palms.

    tan tub chair gold legs

    What a chair! Tons of vintage appeal but with perfect springs, sumptuous velvet upholstery and generous proportions. Turned mid century style legs (in gold)!! give this tan tub chair buckets of style.

    mirrored cabinet

    Any addition to our best selling American antique mirrored furniture collection is welcome, but Dainata is the perfect new piece. Bigger than Daina but smaller than Decima she is ideal in the lounge, bedroom or hallway and (like the others) provides glamorous yet very elegant storage.

    warehouse bed

    Personally I am more inclined to embellish than strip back, and yet I am a huge admirer of the well established industrial trend. Carole Poirot's gorgeous images sold me utterly on the idea of a warehouse pipework bed, so when I saw this (terribly photographed but totally awesome) industrial bed I had to get it on the site pronto. Follow Carole's example and juxtapose with soft pink linen and flowers for maximum appeal.

    walnut drinks cabinet

    Brilliantly (yet possibly unconsciously) named by web content manager Richard, the Fox drinks cabinet is seriously foxy! Dark walnut-backed beveled glass covers the cabinet section which is elevated 60cm off the floor on antique brass Art Deco style legs. I want it!

  • Botanicals are back. As is black.

    Ahhh botanticals are back. For me they've never gone away. Ever since I can remember I have surrounded myself with plants.  I am definitely happiest among fresh greenery and big leaves and would happily live in an interior jungle did not my rabbits' propensity for munching them require the purchase of expensive pots.

    group of plants Moo going in for the kill.

    Before Out There Interiors moved to an old farm we resided in a rather pedestrian office in Chalfont St Peter. It was a stark environment very lacking in atmosphere so I invested in eight large Areca palms to add some interest to the space.  When we moved the plants couldn't survive in the uninsulated farm buildings so they came home with Mark and I.  Mark thought it would be ridiculous to have eight huge plants in such a small space but almost as soon as I dragged them backwards through the front door he relented.

    Plants work magic. Not only do they hide a multitude of sins (cables, dodgy paintwork, ugly speakers) they bring your room to life, literally. Everything is refreshed by the addition of a living, breathing green thing.   If you haven't yet tried this in your space, 2015 is the perfect opportunity to get involved in greenery.  House plants have got more and more interesting recently with the resurgence of succulents, cacti and ferns, and the trend has found its way onto cushions, wallpaper and furniture too.

    large fern next to rattan chair Plants add magic to a space

    As you can see I recently succumbed to black walls (they're going to be big!) and I think my plants look magical against them.  I suggest grouping various plants together on differing levels. Vary the size and shape of your pots and experiment with the positioning until it looks right to you.  Then sit underneath them, talk to them, love them and breathe in the oxygen.

  • Step into the Marsala Zone

    I can’t say I’m in love with Marsala.

    Pantone’s colour of the year 2015 is an off-beat, burnt maroon which upon first view reminded me of my secondary school uniform and my Dad’s old Toyota Corolla. I instantly turned my nose up. But after the initial reaction subsided I started to look at it a little differently…

    Marsala is actually a very sophisticated colour. It’s timeless yet characterful, warm but edgy, and grounds interiors with a satisfying richness.

    Lee (Out There's PR Manager) and I spent a little time looking at complementary shades and were genuinely surprised at its versatility. Baby blue, fresh green and natural fibres set it off beautifully, as Pantone’s inspiration shots prove:

    If you like what you see check out our ‘Marsala Zone’ category where our Marsala friendly products are grouped together. Our Daniella wall clock has been a particular favourite in the press.

    My change of heart was confirmed when I discovered that Pantone refer to Marsala as a ‘wine red’. (Those who know me will know that it is impossible for me to dislike it now).

  • Join the Blush Rush...

    Weber Cabinet - Copper Blush Copper Blush Weber Cabinet

     

    I was recently asked to provide a comment on the 'Copper Blush' trend for 2015 - why its going to be so popular and more importantly how to use it!

    Hopefully you might have caught it over the Christmas period but if not here's the article in full along with suggestions from our Copper Blush curated collection.  :)

    Happy New Year!

     

    “There is no doubt that metallics have been a key trend in 2014, and there’s little to suggest their popularity is diminishing. It is fitting therefore that Dulux have chosen Copper Blush as their colour of the year for 2015.  Copper Blush is a warm, grown-up, terracotta-pink which is perfect as a backdrop for all those shiny metallic pieces you may have invested in during 2014, taking you seamlessly from one season to the next.

    But Copper Blush is not just for the metallic junkies amongst us.   It works perfectly with crisp whites, reclaimed wood, pastels and dark greys, enabling you to incorporate it into a wide variety of interiors. Indeed this is Dulux’s vision, the forecast theme for 2015 being ‘Everyday Plus’ which is all about finding new subtle ways to add colour to everyday/normal lives and spaces.

    Here are four differing ways to introduce this delicious coppery hue into your home.

     

    Latisha Latisha Side Table

    Simple Cool:  Off-set rich copper blush walls with pure white Scandinavian and mid-century inspired furniture. Keep things super simple, then add designer flair with raw wood or dip-painted table legs in a contrasting fluro like fizzy yellow, or complementary bright such as coral or orange.

     

     

    Panya Chair Panya Chair

     

     

     

    Edgy Dark: Create contrast by combining copper blush with dark charcoal. The juxtaposing dark hue tones down the coppery richness and keeps the look grounded yet chic. Incorporate grey-scale textiles, dark woods and copper accessories for an edgy, sophisticated look that’s hard to beat. 

     

     

     

    Gwen Gwen Chest

     

    Romantic Charm:  Copper blush is brought to life with fleshy pinks, earthy clays, pastels and natural woods.  This layering of complementary shades and textures creates an easy-to-live-with atmosphere with an essential touch of elegance. Accessorise with natural textiles for a relaxed vibe or glassy objects and French pieces for a more glamorous, feminine look.

     

    Placida Placida Desk Light

     

     

     

    Metalic Luxe:
    Clearly copper blush works wonderfully with metallics.It is divine as a backdrop for copper furniture, lighting and architectural pieces breathing warmth and luxury into a space.  Remember to break it up with pops of pure white or soft grey so the look doesn’t become overbearing.”
