Over the past few years velvet has featured heavily in the interior design world, and we love it! A great way to give a house, room, sofa, bed or anything a new spring of life is with the addition of something velvety. What’s more there are some great ways to get creative with the material, so if you think you might have a little soft spot for velvet here are some great ways to dress up your house in the stuff!

For some, velvet can be initially a little overwhelming, by its very nature it’s quite a dramatic fabric, especially compared to a linen or cotton. But this drama can either be played up or down depending on your preference, and mixing the fabric with a variety of designs or colours means you can integrate the texture with other factors in a room scheme easily and smoothly. If you want to start off slowly, you can never go wrong with a few velvet cushions to brighten up a sofa, armchair or bed. For a little bit of subtly, opt for a neutral colour, like these mink coloured cushions from Cox & Cox, play around with the different sizes and eventually add in some more complementary colours to go with them.

‘Velvet and Linen Cushions in Mink’ from Cox & Cox

Next add in this delicious creation from Timorous Beasties via Houseology, the bee motif is an iconic Timorous Beasties design and gold contrasted against its dark velvet background offers a dramatic spin on a comfy cushion. It’ll look wonderful popping out against a crisp white sofa, or enhance a romantic atmosphere mixed in with some dark and moody colours.

‘Napoleon Bee Cushion by Timorous Beasties’ from Houseology

If you’re looking for the perfect snuggly material for the remaining winter months, and probably the-not-so-warm spring ones, a velvet throw will turn an average bed into one fit for royalty. This pin-tucked throw from Cox & Cox is gorgeous and comes in this dreamy, timeless sage colour.

‘Velvet and Linen Pin-Tucked Quilt in Sage’ from Cox & Cox

Velvet is a great fabric to add to a traditional style interior, and the glamour can help a room look a hundred times more sophisticated. This button quilted Enya chair from Graham & Green is all about old school Hollywood style, and can transform a room, giving it that lift it’s been in need of, the velvet will catch the light in a wonderful way, giving it extra vibrancy, especially against more muted tones and fabrics.

‘Enya Relaxing Chair’ from Graham & Green

Velvet doesn’t just go with traditional style rooms and furniture, in fact incorporating a modern design with velvet is a great way to balance out the fabric’s dramatic nature. This velvet dining chair has a distinct Nordic style it and the combination of the plush velvet with the modern legs gives an interesting vibe that would give your dining room an individual look.

‘Velvet Button Dining Chair in Blue’ from Out There Interiors

The same goes for these fantastic revived Mid-Century designs distributed by Rose & Grey, and made by 366 Concepts. This rocking chair design takes its inspiration from Jozef Chierowski’s original Easy Chair, with the modern edition of the rocking feature. The Mid-Century wooden frame mixed together with the velvet upholstery creates an exciting, dynamic look.

‘Jozef Chierowski 366 Rocking Chair Velvet’ from Rose & Grey

Another wonderful design from the Rose & Grey and 366 Concept is this occasional chair originally designed by Teofil Halas in 1963. The smoky grey colour gleams in the sunlight and pairs perfectly with the tones of the wood frame. It brings about a balance between low-key elegance and distinctive design can will really set your interiors apart from the rest.

Heals have a wonderful sofa bed in stock at the moment, which reinvents the concept of a Chesterfield sofa. The Chesterfield is a classic design that can be worked into all sorts of interior schemes, the gorgeous sofa bed offers the same style in a contemporary way, it’s available in leather but I think the velvet version is the way to go. Shown below, its styled perfectly with some vibrant yellows and some extra velvet cushions if you just can’t get enough.

’40 Winks Sofa Bed’ from Heal’s

Speaking of yellow, I think I may have fallen in love with the colour of this super footstool from Swoon Editions. The velvet looks divine in its honey mustard colour, and would make a bold statement against some more neutral, contemporary surroundings, or even add a little spice mixed into a traditional setting. If you like the idea of velvet furnishing, but aren’t ready to invest in one of the larger pieces just yet, getting something smaller like a footstool is a great way to test the velvet waters.

‘Tivoli Footstool in Honey’ from Swoon Editions

A velvet effect rug will not only look luxurious but feel it too, a real treat for your eyes and your feet! This rug from Designers Guild is utterly beautiful.

A lot of the time when you look up at someone’s ceiling, you’re most likely to a plain white one looking back at you. Now while there is absolutely nothing wrong with a beautiful, crisp white ceiling, I always sense that in most home, the ceiling goes a little neglected. There are some wonderful ways to play around with the vast space that is your ceiling, and here a just a few ideas, from wallpaper to lighting.

If you’re style tends to lean towards the more traditional side of interior design, a beautiful cornice could be just what you need. A well-crafted cornice will give your home a little grandeur and glamour. For timeless style head over to Stevensons of Norwich, they have something to suit everyone from simple to embellishment.

‘Stevensons National Trust mid Georgian Cornice’ from Stevensons of Norwich

The ceiling rose dates back to as early as the 17th Century in England, and has been a prominent feature in a lot of English homes ever since. Whether you have one that’s looking a bit crumbly, or you don’t have one at all, the addition of a ceiling rose, especially in a traditional or period home is a lovely touch that will add a bit of character to your ceilings. Stevensons of Norwich have some beautiful ceiling roses, in all sorts of styles, I particularly like the art deco designs they have in their collection. They would make a fantastic feature, either painted along with the ceiling in a dramatic colour, or if you’re feeling adventurous painted a contrasting bright colour to your walls and ceiling.

‘Art Deco Ceiling Rose B’ from Stevensons of Norwich

Maybe you’re into a bit of bling in your interiors, and want to go full Renaissance, marble mansion-esque style but aren’t really looking to re-mortgage the house in order to kit it out. Instead of breaking the bank, why not go for a modern, playful alternative to the real thing. Wall decals are excellent ways to create a big statement in an easy, fun way. This gold stencil, available on Etsy is a great idea if you want to add a bit of neo-classical luxury to your ceilings.

‘Ceiling Stencil’ from Cutting Edge Stencils via Etsy

A great way to add a bit of colour, character and charm onto your ceilings is to wallpaper them. Whether is a bold colour or an intriguing patterns or imagery, you can begin to create your very own Sistine Chapel. For a contemporary take on the conventional cloud-like design, this wallpaper from Designers Guild is superb! Turn a bedroom or a den into a dreamy heaven with this little gem up on your ceiling!

‘Ceil Liberte Aurore Wallpaper’ from Designers Guild

For an industrial, distressed style, this tile wallpaper is fantastic way to give your home a bit of an edge, it replicates the tin tiles that were all the rage in North America from 1890 to the 1930s.

‘Brooklyn Tile Wallpaper’ from Trouva

High ceilings are a blessing to those who have them, and they invite all sorts of fun and creative decorative ideas. If you have the space in an indoor room, or perhaps a conservatory, filling the ceiling area with gorgeous lanterns is great to tick the decorating and lighting boxes. Keep them all white for a sophisticated look, or create a playful environment with a range of colourful lanterns.

‘Chinese Lanterns’ from Featherology 2 via Etsy

If you like the idea of the lanterns, but maybe think they’re a little too feminine for your style, why not go for something like these black, grey and white star lanterns from Bodie & Fou. They had a cool, contemporary edge, and if you’re living in a smoky city, seeing the stars at night won’t be a problem anymore!

‘Selection of Stars’ from Bodie & Fou

The perfect ceiling accessory if of course a pendant light, just like a wonderful pair of earrings it’s a fab way to complete a whole look. For something rather special these tassel pendant lights from Rockett St George are a little bit magical. They’re made from smoked olive teardrop glass shades and one metre of tassels. The perfect companion for a stairwell.

‘Long Tassel Glass Light’ from Rockett St George

And lastly, for a bit of colourful fun, and a great way to quickly brighten up a room, this rainbow shade for Rockett St George will do just the trick in giving your ceiling a bit life!

More often than not when faced with the task of redecorating, whether it’s a recently bought house or just time for a facelift, so many of us shy away from bold adventurous patterns and colours and head straight over to the neutrals section of any sample book and never look back. While neutral, when done well, will always been an elegant and classic decision, there’s something to be said for adorning your home with something a little more unusual.

A few weeks ago I wrote a blogpost on some of the best paint companies around, and today I wanted to share the companies who have Angel + Blume’s stamp of approval when it comes to gloriously exciting and interesting wallpaper designs. For all the thrill seekers out there who don’t want to settle for plain and love a creative and vibrantly decorated interior, here are some absolutely wonderful, out of the ordinary wallpaper designs that will tick all the boxes.

When you opt for a striking, daring wallpaper design, instead your wall of being just part of the foundations of a house, it becomes a work of art, and finding an artistic print that’s just right for you will not only give you so much joy but will completely transform a room.

‘Rockface’ from Fromental

This is a wonderful, contemporary piece from Fromental, it’ll bring a bucket load of originality and create an elegant and sleek landscape right in the middle of your home. It will look striking on a long stretch of a wall, even when broken up with features such as a fireplace like above. What’s so great about this design is the symmetry between the drama of the mountain design and understated nature of the colour palette meaning either part can be dressed up or down depending on your style preference.

Another company that is always a reliable source for art-like wallpaper designs is House of Lacroix via Designers Guild. Vivid, snappy designs that don’t shy away from colour, Lacroix wallpapers will excite anyone who sees them. The latest collection ‘Incroyables et Merveillesuses’ has some truly show-stopping patterns that are perfect for awakening your wild side.

‘Bagatelle’ by House of Lacroix from Designers Guild

With a visual impact like no other, the Bagatelle design, which takes inspiration from the Parc de Bagatelle just outside of Paris, will inject life into your interior and is a superb way to show off of your courageous and inventive style.

For an equally floral and fruitful design, but with a more regimented pattern, Timorous Beasties have a lovely design that coordinates wonderful scenery into contemporary vertical stripes, making it the ideal companion for anyone looking to integrate nature elements into a modern scheme without it looking too traditional. The playful vertical stripes work perfectly and add a little bounce to the interior.

‘Fruit Looters’ from Timorous Beasties

Never one to shy away from colour and patterns, Osborne and Little always have something rather wonderful up their sleeve, and their new ‘Fantasque’ collection is nothing short of amazing. The geometric patterns and abstract designs pay homage to the cultural movements of the early 20th century and the striking colours are just what the doctor ordered to add a little oomph to your interiors.

‘Fantasque’ from Osborne and Little

This art deco themed wallpaper is wonderfully sultry, the rich colours and bold patterns make it ooze with glamour, the dramatic aesthetic would look stunning in dark and cosy den. Another vertically striped marvel is this Tamara De Lempicka inspired pattern which has a lovely vibrant sense of movement to it.

‘Lempicka’ from Osborne and Little

If you love a vivacious colour palette but find traditional prints and patterns more agreeable with you style Waybreads is the perfect company for you. Waybreads make beautiful hand printed wallpapers that all follow a natural, wildlife motif; think a modern Morris & Co. in the making.

‘Dog Rose’ from Waybreads

I think the combination of this colourway and pattern is breath-taking, so rich and luxurious yet kept humble by the floral motif, it would look amazing in a long corridor or hallway. Another equally stunning design from Waybreads is this ‘Guleder Rose and Old Man’s Beard’ print. With a lovely backstory as its inspiration and the extra added touch of being hand printed, there’s a real uniqueness about the design that will really give your home a wonderful welcoming spirit.

‘Guelder Rose and Old Man’s Beard’ from Waybreads

If you’re looking for something that has the same amount of style and impact but in more of a subtle tone, there are plenty of styles and designs that will get you your fix. Designers Guild have a beautiful fading design that is the perfect balance between neutral and experimental. There’s a balance of sophistication and elegance as well as fun and contemporariness that creates a modern nod towards a classic interior.

Designers Guild Saraille

‘Saraille’ from Designers Guild

Fromental have a delightful geometric design that uses a subtle palette, which is perfect of those who want optimum style without being over the top, the Moorish architectural it takes influence from a classic, elegant style that won’t appear dated, and the use of the blue tones and shading give the design an almost three dimensional effect.

‘Kaleidoscope’ from Fromental

So if you’re thinking about spicing up your interiors, why not dive in head first with some outstanding wallpaper designs that will truly make your home shine with originality and excitement.

When it comes to redecorating a home perhaps the most important decision you’ll make is what colour your walls should be, make the wrong choice and you’re stuck with a peculiar colour until you can summon the strength to do it all over again, but make the right choice and your home will transform before your eyes.

The paint company most of us jump straight to for beautiful colours is the paint master themselves Farrow and Ball, and it’s true they do produce fantastic, timeless colours, but with so many other fabulous companies producing amazing paints I thought I’d put Farrow and Ball on the backburner for today and introduce to you some of the best paint companies around.

Designers Guild are known for their bold patterns and their colour palette in their paint department is no different, from beautiful pastel pinks, to zingy lime greens if you’re walls are in need of the ultimate sprucing up then Designers Guild should be your first port of call.

First Blush by Designer’s Guild

Mimosa Leaf by Designers Guild

I absolutely love this Mimosa Leaf colour, it’s a bold move that certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted but if you’ve got the guts it’s definitely a way to make an impression. If you want to introduce a wild colour into your interiors it’s best to opt for a room that has either a lot of windows or features that will break up a wall so that you can avoid one giant block of colour that might end up looking a little scary and intimidating.

If bright, colourful hues aren’t really your taste there are some absolutely drool-worthy tall, dark and handsome colours around if you’re looking to add a little mystery and romance to your interiors. The Little Greene Paint Company is a lovely company that create a super high quality paint collection and they have some outrageously glamourous dark shades in their range.

Obsidian Green by The Little Greene Paint Company

This bluey green reminds me of the depths of the ocean and creates an amazing modern presence in a room especially when mixed with the richness of a dark wood like in the photo above.

Invisible Green by The Little Greene Paint Company

The smokiness of this green creates a beautiful earthy, organic ambience and with the splash of hot pink, or another bright colour, there is a real contemporary vibe to the atmosphere. When using such a dark colour it’s always important to have a lot of natural light so that the colour doesn’t overpower the room but instead will be showed-off in the light.

One company that has really found its stride in its paint department is Fired Earth, they are producing some wonderful colours. Their most recent spring collection was created around the theme of birds, my personal favourite was the Peafowl green, a wonderful colour that is bold enough to make a statement but not so bright as to make a room too intense.

Peafowl by Fired Earth

Just like some people, some homes have a natural flair for the dramatics and finding the right theatrical colour is crucial. There’s a devilishly exciting feeling about using black or near-black in a home, it’s a little off-key and against the grain but if done well and in the right home it can look absolutely terrific. Charcoal from Fired Earth is oh so tempting and is an extremely brave and original way to reinvent an interior.

Charcoal by Fired Earth

For something just as rich but a little mellower, a deep plum purple is a great way to add drama to a home but still maintain a scheme that works in the everyday.

Carragheen by Fired Earth

For a diverse range of tones and hues Sanderson and Zoffany have wonderful collections ranging from pale pastels to moody blues. Companies that make the paint, fabric and wallpaper trio have a natural knack at creating the perfect symmetry between each material. So if you have a sofa upholstered in a fabric by a beloved designer or a feature wall in a wallpaper, looking into the same companies paint range may be the best way to find the most complementary schemes.

Ming Gold by Sanderson

Tuscan Pink by Zoffany

Prussian by Zoffany

There is so much fun to be had when choosing paint colours for your home, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore and experiment with your taste and your comfort zone and create the most wonderfully personalised walls for you, and with so many collections and companies out there you truly are spoilt for choice!

This week at Angel + Blume we’re in love with big, bright and beautiful colours, and we want you to fall in love as well, so we’ve put together some of our favourite collections of the best and brightest designs you’ll see this season. Fortune favours the brave and you won’t be disappointed if you decide take the leap of faith and go all out with these outstanding designs.

What first inspired us to write this blog was seeing the beautiful advert for the new Diane von Furstenberg collection for Kravet.

Although this might be a little full-on for some people and their homes, the colours and patterns are exquisite and would each make an outstanding statement piece individually.

For a less bright, but equally dynamic look, see the Funky Zebra pattern from the DVF collection. The cool blue tones allow for a more understated style, whilst the pattern keeps the fun flowing.

This season Kravet has also teamed up with Jonathan Adler for another dazzling collection, and it’s just the thing if you’re looking for a little retro boost for your home.

There are very few people who do bold and beautiful better than Dominic Crinson. His wallpaper and tile designs are everything you’ll need to channel your flamboyant style, and if you’ve got the moxie, your home will shine with originality and flair.

Although not for the faint hearted, Crinson’s designs are gloriously avant-garde, perfect for a modern day home or even to spice up an old period house.

If you’re in the market for some beautiful tiles, but are finding Dominic Crinson’s style a little overwhelming, Emery and Cie may be just the ticket. They’re style is still bold and beautiful, but with more of a classic edge, the collection ranging from Iznik influences to Art Nouveau, here are just a few of my favourites.

The Faux Iznik tiles from Emery and Cie are perfect for adding some exotic, heritage style into your home, ideal for a fireplace or bathroom.

These Fez Pottery designs, which come in these wonderfully tranquil turquoise hues, would make a lovely feature in any room, and are a timeless piece that will interact with most styles seamlessly.

Another beautiful design from Emery and Cie are these sweet Mirror Scale tiles.

They’d make a stunning frame around a mirror or cabinet but if you really want to go for something eye-catching then be brave and cover an entire wall in the tiles.

Going a little more low-key but still sticking to some exciting block colours, you can dress up the front of your cabinets with these lovely designs from Superfront, a company that creates fronts, handles, tops and legs for popular IKEA cabinets.

Available in a variety of colours and patterns, they’re a great way to reboot your kitchen or any cabinet pieces without remodelling, and are great for updating your home as your style or colour preference changes.

If you are a fan of wild colours for your interior why not dive in at the deep end and paint your walls with some bold colour choices, no one ever said that a blank canvas needed to be white. Designers Guild has some wonderful paints, and this TG Green is amazing with just the right amount of outrageousness.

If you want to treat your walls (and your eyes) to some daring wallpaper, look no further than the king of patterns and prints Matthew Williamson. His Cuban influenced collection for Osborne & Little combines retro glamour with contemporary colours and will have you spoilt for choice.

I love this palm tree wallpaper; it’ll turn any room into a little paradise, and the same can be said for this flamingo and flower print, shown here as a fabric.

My absolute favourite design in the collection though is this wonderful Arini wallpaper.

The contrast between the metallic background and the colourful parrots is playfully elegant; it’ll exhibit your style whilst also showing that you don’t take life too seriously.

Though you need your home to be liveable and functional it doesn’t mean that you need to steer clear from the element of fun, these designs and collections are perfect for keeping your spirits up and putting a smile on your face.

As a child I remember loving nothing more than animals and all things wild. Perhaps it stemmed from my love of Disney’s The Jungle Book and The Lion King, or our family’s visits to Wimpole Farm, but my bedroom was filled to the brim with soft toys, animal themed curtains and wooden parrots hanging from the ceiling. Animal and nature themed bedrooms for kids are an innovative and fun way for your child to explore their imagination and if you’re looking to decorate along these lines then have a look at what’s around at the moment by some of our favourite brands and designers.

Story-time can be made a lot more comfortable and stylish with this range of cosy cushions and beanbag chairs, so that you and your child can sit back, relax and get lost in their favourite storybook.

Osborne & Little Zagazoo Fabrics

This marvellous Quentin Blake inspired fabric pattern by Osborne & Little is a wonderful return to some classic children’s books, and is the perfect addition to if you’re sceptical about taking the plunge and going head-to-toe in a wildlife theme.

If you’re searching for a more classic English countryside landscape style then check out this cushion design by Designers Guild. This Happy Campers Kids Cushion with its aged pastel look and delightful little foxes is an adorable design.

Designers Guild - Happy Campers Kids Cushion

This fun beanbag chair by Aspace comes in a wonderful mix-match pattern that would work perfectly in a child’s room, or even in your living room, the little strawberries and kiwis in the pattern are sweet touches as well.

Aspace - Beanbag

Designers Guild have some lovely wallpapers designed for children’s bedrooms, and my particular favourite is this Daisy Patch design. The pattern is fun and bright enough to get the kid’s approval, and because the design isn’t too childish it means that the wallpaper could last until your child is in their early teens.

Designers Guild - Daisy Patch Wallpaper

There are some really fun and creative animal and nature accessories to play around with when decorating your kid’s bedroom. Aspace has some wonderful ideas to spark your child’s imagination. This Felt Elephant Head is a fun, quirky accessory that both parent and child will love for years!

As is this adorable cloud- shelf idea, it’s both pretty and practical and is a great way to individualise your child’s room.

If you’re looking for something more than simply decorative, have a look at some of the toys by Designers Guild. I love these Carp paper mobiles, so much so I’m tempted to get some for my room! And this wooden wheel-along rabbit toy is both a super stylish and a fun toy. These toys are perfect for your kids’ enjoyment without you having to endure the usual garishness of kids’ toys.

Designers Guild - Pull Along Wooden Rabbit Toy

A nature theme can also be incorporated into your child’s learning, whatever stage they may be at. This animal alphabet wall sticker by Feather & Black is a great learning tool, and is still something fun to decorate the walls with and for the kids to look at.

Feather and Black - Alphabet Zoo Wall Sticker

This adorable little tree bookcase from Not On The High Street is both great for storing books and odds and ends as well as being unbelievably cute.

And finally, just for some extra cute factor Not On The High Street is also stocking some sweet little animal head shaped mirrors that will give you and your child hours of entertainment.
