Update your look with MADE.COM


Anyone who is a longtime reader of my blog will know I have a thing for bright colours and lots of them. This mainly applies to my home (I tried the whole colour blocking my clothes thing when it was in and it just didn't work for me). I guess is also applies to the art I love although colour is not the prerequisite, as I tried to explain to some family members who tried to get me to buy a rather hideous colourful zebra print one time..

I am heavily influenced by sixties design and do love a good mustard sofa. sometimes our home, especially our living room, can look a bit too colourful truth be told. I often think of painting the walls white, removing all the unnecessary pieces and just getting a few statement items. 

I think you can really transform a room with a pop of colour, by using a statement piece of furniture to recreate the space without breaking the band on a complete make over.

I chose these four pieces from MADE.COM as the perfect examples of accent pieces to create just the effect.

First up the Quentin two seater sofa in blue. I think we will choose a two seater for our next sofa purchase for sure, the size is perfect for our small family and means we just need one or two arm chairs for guests. 

Although I said I was all for bright colours, if you do happen to have a colourful space anyway I think a grey armchair like the Kubrick wingback is great for off setting that and calming the room.

I had to include this beautiful mustard Redford two seater (it states it's zest green but I'm calling mustard ;))

Last but not least this bright orange Lulu chair would be perfect for that pop of bright!

Do you love colour in your home or prefer a neutral tone?

I always knew you were a lady who's heart belonged to the sixties! I love your taste & I really love this furniture. I think I naturally gravitate towards a more neutral, english cottagey, lots of white textures & dark wood, because that's what I grew up with and long for, but I love to look at modern furniture like this...I really appreciate a good mustard colour too! My parent's painted the door of their cottage birds custard yellow and I think it's the best thing they've ever done...it really brightens up the whole street when the sky is grey!
