Autumn Living







 





Celebrate the best Autumn has to offer with vases filled with Autumn leaves, roaring fires, romantic candles and long baths. Cosy up living spaces with rugs, woollen blankets, sheepskin throws and knitted cushions to snuggle into. There's nothing better than embracing a chilly day with a home baked pie warm from the oven, homemade pumpkin soup and a hearty, slow cooked casserole for dinner with a glass of heart warming red! While away afternoons with good books, classic DVD's, a game of scrabble or a challenging puzzle.

Trend Alert : DIY Dipped Furniture











DIY Dip Dyed Furniture
I know I know…it is the ‘new’ thing and we don’t want to over do it….but…it’s just so fabulous that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to chat about furniture dipped in paint!!!!

Easy to do and easy to change back when you get sick of it!

Some quick tips:
Step 1: Grab a piece of furniture you’re wanting to pretty up. A chair might be the easiest to start with.


Step 2: Choose your paint and go to your local hardware store to buy it – glossy paint is always best, find the best quality neon/pastel acrylic paint you can. Depending on the type of furniture spray paint might be the best and most convenient option (and more fun!).

Step 3: Put tape where you want you’re your new colour to start (make sure your under coat is well and truly dry before you do this).

Step 4: Now, go to town and enjoy….feel free to use a sponge to spot the paint onto your piece and touch up with a brush later to avoid heavy brush strokes

TIP: Check antique or op shops for older chairs or stools that you can play around with.

You will always find a place for something you love!!!

Colour Riot








Decorating tip - Don't go overboard!

Don't get me wrong - I love colour and I really admire those designers and home decorators that are brave enough to use bold, confident colours but for most of us, using lots of colour is hard to pull off. When there is an overload of colour it can close a room in and make it appear busy and out of control. I think it's best to play it safe and use a maximum of two colours per room. Mix these accent colous back with neutrals or black and white to ground the scheme, balance out the colour and give it some relief. The right amount of colour will really make a room pop without being overwhelming.
