Have you ever had that feeling when you have bought something for your home, that didn’t come with an ‘Um and Ar” moment beforehand, but did come with a gut feeling that it was just the right thing to buy, regardless of the cost?
You know that time, when you have got it home and you just can’t help but smile at it because it makes you happy to own it???
I do love finding things that are a little bit different. while scouring the internet for products I find that quite a lot of stores are stocking the same things and I mean same, not even just similar.
So imagine my delight at finding Safari Fusion. Not a bit of rose gold, copper or marble to be seen. 😉 (not that I am not partial to some of these!!!)
One of my favourite elements of interior design and styling is using fabrics, whether it be upholstery, soft furnishings or window dressings, fabrics can add a real point of interest in a space.
I have spent many a happy hour or two looking at fabrics and have a box full of samples in my office.
The range of products available is astounding, so many variations in colour, pattern and texture. Fabrics can be really important element in a space. Textured fabrics can add interest in a neutral interior, breaking up a flat use of the same colour. A highly patterned or coloured fabric can make an armchair or sofa a star attraction. Using rich fabrics like silk and velvet can add a feeling of opulence.
At the moment I am focusing on two rooms in our apartment. The master bedroom still needs a chair re-upholstered and new window dressings and the study needs a new sofa bed, lighting and also window dressings. The hold up on this comes down to one big factor, money. Like a lot of people we do not have an limitless budget.
Which is fine, Rome wasn’t built in a day!!!
So imagine my shock and slight horror when I woke up to this!!!!!
