According to interiors stylist Hannah Cork, now is the perfect time to redecorate, renovate and revitalise your home. She shares her top tips and trend predictions for the year ahead.
Keeping your home in order is a goal we all strive towards. All possessions should have their place to avoid feeling overwhelmed by your own clutter. Sharps have a great range of fitted wardrobes. They are bespoke fitted to extremely high standards so you know the carpentry will last. (sharps.co.uk)
GET THE GLOW
A real fire makes any home seem cosy. Failing that, put tea lights in an array of collected cut and coloured glassware, like the above from Graham and Green (grahamandgreen.co.uk) and cluster on the mantelpiece for beautiful, flickering light.
The start of the year is a good time to press the re-set button. Take stock of your home, streamline your interiors, and plan for any disruptive work to start in the spring when the days begin to get longer and warmer.
The house can often feel so bare and empty in the dark dreary months of winter. But you can easily ‘lift’ it with some achievable changes. Greenery doesn’t have to just be for spring. Foliage, such as eucalyptus, salal and exotica, is inexpensive and looks stunning when arranged simply. Go to your local flower market for inspiration.
I’ve been harping on about coloured bathroom suites for years, and I’m finally seeing them feature in super- edgy interiors shoots. Banish the idea that colour cannot feature on basins and baths. In the right setting, they look absolutely stunning.
A NEW SHADE
I’m loving Heart Wood, the Dulux colour for 2018 (dulux.co.uk). Reminiscent of strawberry yoghurt, it’s a super-versatile muted pink with undertones of purple that will add warmth, whilst retaining elegance.
Place more attention on your bedding and linen. It’s vital for well-being. Soak & Sleep are the top of my list for beautiful solutions without the crazy price tag. (soakandsleep.com)
