The Wish List
This year has been all about attainable luxury, metallics and the comeBACK of gold. However, these precious and opulent materials must be used with caution in order to avoid the pitfall of overuse and the risk of the design becoming overbearing. Here are my top products that can be added to new or existing interiors in order to achieve design perfection without necessarily breaking the bank.
1. Natural Stone Rug
Bring some glamour inspired by nature to your interior space with this neutral rug. Its soft, silky highlights are made from a mixture of synthetic yarns making it a practical choice, albeit an elegant one. Don’t be fooled with the flat weave as this piece will bring the texture that every space needs!
W:120 x L:170, £149; W:160 x L:230, £220; W:200 x L:290, £290.
2. Gold Antelope Horn
A sculpture that has been designed to command attention with its rich gold accents and metallic hues. Bring luxury and substance to your chosen space with this oversized horn standing proud at 82cm. Perfect for the mantel piece or a console table.
H: 820mm W: 130mm D: 150mm, £79.
3. Textured Wallcovering
There are so many reasons why I love this wallcovering. You can create a breath-taking snug atmosphere with iridescent mottles, curvaceous lines and brushed metal effects from a washable range making it suitable for so many applications. It’s also great value for money; the price tag may initially appear high but you are getting double the width at 106cm when compared to a standard 53cm wide roll; this also means less joins for a seamless finish.
L:10m x W:106cm roll. Available in a stylish colour palette of black, copper, graphite and gold together with neutrals, soft blues and green, £125.
4. Sable Fur Throw
A sumptuous, deep pile faux fur throw coloured in a luxurious, warm chocolate tone. The glistening fibres will adapt to the surrounding hues in any environment. The contrast lining is one of my favourite touches which allows and encourages the use of varying tones in the room to achieve a professionally designed look.
W:140 cm x L:200, £500.
5. Less is More Table Lamp
Embellish your interior with this luxurious polished brass table lamp designed to turn heads. I love the simple yet effective design achieved by two contrasting brass tubes, one being hammered and the other polished. Perfect for an entrance hall or living area. I also love using this design in bedrooms for some added romance.
Custom sizes and finishes available including nickel, copper, black nickel, £590.
6. Ribbon Fringe Pouf
Created and finished using the finest materials with elegance at its core. The layered use of suede not only brings luxe glamour but creates the added sense of warmth that most interiors need. This design can be adapted to any size and palette using custom fabrics and leathers which makes it my design must-have.
D:60cm x H:42cm from £950 – £1,250. Fabric/Leather. Bespoke sizes, upholstery and finishes available.
