We are still utterly obsessed by our recently completed Aver project, minimalist lines, herringbone european oak floors, black cabinetry and luxurious brass elements are really what tie this look all together. Here are a few shots from the project, and a run down on our selections and styling.
The master bedroom features a stunning buttoned headboard in a petrol linen with studded details, teamed with the brass Berber pendant lights from Jardan. Side tables are our very own Handvark black marble side tables adorned with books and our white rectangular marble tray, AYTM rose unity tray, and our House Doctor small black geometry vase. The bed is finished with a combination of gorgeous pillows and throws of different textures and colours including our Bloomingville rose cotton cushions, and Artwork is our Nynne Rosenvinge velvet prints in Grey. A luxe boudoir fit for a queen.
WALK IN ROBE
While we call it a walk in robe this little beauty is actually open to the bedroom and adds a very grand feel to the room. Monochrome tones were used to create a bold yet modern look including white 2-pac cabinetry, black stained oak island bench and our black Aver pull handles. Who wouldn’t want get dressed in such splendid surroundings. We styled the island with our black Alveus floor vases, H Skjalm P brass bowls and Brass display boxes.
Our favourite corner of the nursery is fit for a King…or a prince in this case. Our Suki Baby Armchair, layered with our Bloomingville Mongolian lambskin and grey quilted cushion creates so much more than a comfy corner, but rather a place where you can sit with your little one and read for hours. To tie in with our navy armchair, we have added the Nynne Rosenvinge velour print in navy and to add a pop of luxe we have added our Bloomingville brass side table. Our tan leather ottoman is the perfect spot to put your feet up!
This space was about being dramatic and bold and we wanted to create a different feel compared to the other rooms in the house. The dark grey walls are painted in Dulux Raku and against the white trimmings in the room and the oak herringbone floors, this room definitely has that wow factor. Our House Doctor Feather wall pads in different colours and sizes look so effective against the dark wall and to add a luxe element we have added brass elements in the room including a brass lamp, our H Skajlm medium brass flower pot and House Doctor geometric small brass bowl. In addition, for fashionable storage we have added our green marble rectangular tray, our white rectangular marble tray, AYTM rose unity tray, and our House Doctor small black geometry vase
The kitchen is the winning feature of this project with it’s 4m carrara marble island bench, stunning marble splashback, black oak cabinetry and brass accents. The kitchen ties in with the other cabinetry of the house using Dulux Vivid White 2-pac overhead cabinetry, and black stained oak drawers and tall cupboards to create a more open and spacious feel. The brass tap ware and our Brass Aver Pulls, styled with our H Skjalm P brass bowls, Bloomingville Brass Round Tray, Louise Roe Crystal Water Bottle and Crystal Glasses add a luxe feel.
Cool blue tones and fresh greenery creates a relaxed and serene atmosphere for this living space. We have styled the lounge with different textures and layers including our Bloomingville Mongolian lambskin throw, AYTM Mint Aeris Cushion and AYTM Grey leather Coria cushion. Behind the lounge we have used our Brass Bloomingville Brushed Gold Table as a Planter Stand and the H Skjalm Medium Brass Flower Pot.
We have styled the Handvark Marble Coffee Table with our Bloomingville Brass Round Tray, Unity Half Circle Tray in Navy and Unity Quarter circle tray in Grey. Touches of blue were added with the Louise Roe Blue City Light small blue vase and the Bloomingville small Navy Ceramic Vase.
We have styled this beautiful brass drinks trolley using pastel pink tones which compliment our Bloomingville Sooji Copper Leaves print. Sitting pretty on this trolley is our Louise Roe Crystal Water Bottle and Crystal Glasses, Louise Roe Amethyst City Lights vase and Matt Powder Cylinder box.
Consoles and other occasional tables can often be difficult to style, what do you put on a table that really doesn’t have too much of a purpose, other than to add interest to an entry or to serve as a backdrop to a sofa.
When styling a console or occasional table, you need to style in layers and use varying levels with the items you select to add real interest. Here are some essentials we often use.
Lighting really does complete a console table whether you choose to have a symmetrical look and use two lamps, or place one lamp to one end of the table. Lighting is a great place to start and really sets the foundation for how you style your table. (Photo: Nathan Kirkman for Alto, designed by Samantha Todhunter)
A stack of books is a must, they allow you to build varying heights by placing other items on top of them, so get searching for some brilliant hardcovers. (Photo: Patrick Cline)
Trays are a brilliant base to start layering with, they look fabulous as the base to place your candles and sculptural objects on. Try a gorgeous marble or brass tray it is absolutely the perfect table addition.
Either one large centred piece above your table or a collection of great pieces layered together is a great way to frame your table, and sometimes a brilliant alternative to a mirror. (Photo: Fashionismo)
Mirrors hung centrally behind a console table or propped up against the wall behind your table will make your space look larger, add light to the area and serve as a beautiful backdrop. (Photo: Timothy Whealon)
VASES & PLANTERS
Vases filled with fresh blooms, or planters with indoor plants are a brilliant addition to bring a little life to your table. Orchids, maidenhair ferns and the never fail fiddle leaf fig are some of our top choices for bringing a green touch to your space! We love them in our bloomingville brass planter and the H Skjalm P Valencia Vase. (Photo: The Stables)
The base or lower level of a console is the ideal place for baskets and decorative boxes not only do they look fantastic, but being able to add storage is a real plus! Our House Doctor handmade art boxes are ideal for this.
SCULPTURAL PIECES AND OBJECTS
These items are really what add interest to your table, sculptural pieces draw the eye. Have some fun with these items, they can be as unusual as you like, and a collection of old finds are often a fabulous option. Our brass star sculptures are a perfect choice!
Happy styling folks
