Choosing the Right Colour Schemes for Modern Homes
October 5, 2018 at 12:07 pm 0

When the time comes to decorate, we all know the daunting feeling we get when we see that blank canvas. Deciding on the right colour scheme for your room can be as important as choosing the right furniture.

Colour stimulates the mind as well as our emotions. There is a wealth of information on the internet about the symbolism and history behind the use of certain colours. But we're going to keep things simple and guide you in the direction of interior colour schemes. Take a look at our guide to help make that perfect colour choice!

 

The Colour Wheel - Your best friend when it comes to selecting interior paints.

 

Cool Colours

Cool colours are on the right-hand side of our colour wheel. They are hues ranging from Green to Blue, through Blue-Violet. These colours are best used when you want to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Cool colours are typically used in the living rooms and bedrooms, as they promote a sense of tranquillity and relaxation.

BLUES

Blue is a particular interior favourite for creating calmness, peace and tranquillity. It is a popular colour for many rooms due to the fact it can go with both traditional and modern styles.

   

The Grey Gloss Fern Console and White Trestle Desk work great against this dark blue wall to create a modern vintage vibe.

   

Vintage styles can be created using blue with white and floral prints. Choose a chalky looking colour with a richness. Vintage homes need to feel authentic, so the deeper the colour, the better

   

Try Oval Room Blue from Farrow and Ball for a rich shade to suit your vintage interior.

 

Contemporary styles can be created using a cooler tone of blue with mismatched metallics and gloss finishes. Or try creating a more colourful interior by pairing shades of blue work well with pastel colours. Think soft apple greens or bright yellows for a great combination creating a sunny Mediterranean style.

   

Denim Drift from Dulux is the perfect cool shade for modern interiors.

GREENS

Green is the colour used to symbolize nature, balance, harmony and positivity. Pantone announced Greenery as its Colour of the Year 2017 due to its fresh, zesty feel. It creates a relaxing atmosphere when used in various tones.

   

Pantone, Greenery

   

Team with pastels and neutrals to create a contemporary look in a living room. Alternatively, for a country cottage look, work with shades of cream and neutrals for a look that's very easy on the eyes.

   

The Arc and Riva Set brings just the right amount of colour to your kitchen. Use a graphic rug for a modern look.

 

Adding black and white to green can create an Art Deco look or why not be bold and try a retro theme with lime green for something a little different.

 

PURPLES

Purple can be a tricky colour to introduce into our homes. Pale Lilac can feel very young and sweet, but too dark can feel a bit seedy. The key to getting this trend right is using purple sparingly and combining with other colours.

        When Pantone announced UltraViolet as 2018's Colour of the Year, we were all a little unsure what to think. However, after reviewing the colour combinations suggested by Pantone, we came round to using purple in our homes. Keep your walls neutral and play with purple in your furniture and soft furnishings.    

Anzio Gas Lift Barstool in Mulberry Purple

    The Anzio Barstool is just the right amount of attitude and colour for modern kitchens. Keep accessories metallic for a cool vibe and for a lighter feeling home.    

Warm Colours

Warm colours are on the left -hand side of our colour wheel. These are your reds, oranges, pinks and yellows.  They are lively, stimulating and domineer over cool colours. Warm colours should not be used as a base colour and are best used when highlighting statement pieces in your room.

REDS

Just like warning signs, red is a colour which grabs your attention. Making it ideal when used on a feature wall or creating a statement piece in a room. As red is a very dominating, powerful colour, it's best to use in the social rooms in your house, such as your kitchen or playroom.   

The Brick Red Finn Dining Chair is the perfect way to introduce red into your home without it feeling too overpowering.

  Avoid using red in your bedroom or living room, as it is a very visually stimulating colour and will not help with the relaxation. That said, when used in small doses, red can often be more effective, so great for those decorative accessories.

 

For a more subtle red, take a look at Picture Callery Red, from Farrow and Ball for a more traditional and softer look. Pair with off-white and dark woods to create an antique vibe.

 

YELLOWS

Like the sunshine, yellow is bright and exudes excitement so ideal for a child's room or in an entrance hallway. It is also effective when used to highlight elements of your space.  

Finn Barstools in Mustard

  When choosing yellow furniture, be sure the rest of the decor is subtle, otherwise, you risk creating a very busy looking room. Navy and Yellow are a match made in heaven, so stick to dark blue walls and offset with a pop of mustard.

ORANGES

As a mixture of red and yellow, it shares both attributes of these colours. Although Orange is hot and fiery like Red, it is not as aggressive. Orange actually stimulates mental activity, so add a splash of orange in a study or children's playroom. It also works well in a kitchen as is associated with appetite and health foods.  

The Orange Zilo is just enough of a pop in this modern home office with the Black Cavour Desk

 

PINKS

Pink has been having a moment recently. Be in Millenial pink or Plaster pinks, we see different shades popping up all over the interior circuit. Blush pink has been a favourite in our homes for a while now, especially when paired with copper and white.  

Blush Pink Plaza Velvet Stool

  Create a real statement by painting a pink ombre wall. This is a great interior paint effect for a little girls room or a home office. tone down pink by mixing with Grey and White for a more grown-up look.  

The White and Oak Aver Extending Dining Table works beautifully against a Pink Ombre Wall

   

Neutrals

Neutrals are great for creating a light and soft environment and giving the illusion of space. This scheme looks stylish, sophisticated and is great used as a blank canvas. You can then injected with colour, print and pattern for interest.  

Cleo and Santo Dining Set

  This is ideal as a base colour as allows you to update the room by just using bright accents and accessories. These tones are great when used with warm tones such as rich red, mushroom, and terracotta.  

BLACK

Black is formal, elegant and prestigious. It makes other colours stand out so ideal for teaming up with warm shades. Too much black in a space can make the room feel smaller so stick to limiting the quantities by adding accents of other colours. Black is perfect for that formal dining area to add a touch of class and style.

 

Elise and Black Chrome Dining Chair

  Perhaps try black Leather Dining Chairs as they are great at hiding marks and bring drama to your home. Our black chrome is a great alternative to a classic chrome finish, so go to the dark side and play with these inky tones.

Glass Tables Are Great For The Illusion Of Space
September 21, 2018 at 10:29 am 0
We all want to make the most of our space. Whether that's creating sections in an open plan kitchen or maximising what little room there is available. This is where contemporary furniture comes into its own! Materials like glass and perspex create transparent pieces which create the illusion of space. In this post, we’ll give you a  rundown of what glass tables are great for when it comes to styling your home.  

Glass Dining Tables, Great For: Strength & Durability

We couldn’t write a post about glass dining tables without mentioning tempered glass. All of our glass products, from dining tables to sideboards and consoles, are made from tempered safety glass that's been tested and certified to British Standards. This means the material is strong, safe and durable. All of our glass tables have been designed with style, practicality and safety in mind, so you really needn’t worry about the glass being precarious or fragile in any way.  

Great For: Creating The Illusion Of Space

Being transparent, a glass table will give your room such a light and open feel, especially compared to a table of the same size but with a darker, opaque finish. For example, the Zen 6 Seater Glass and White Gloss Dining Table is a relatively large table but because of the slim glass top and gloss legs, the table has less of a visual impact and presence in the space.   If you don’t have the space or don’t need a larger table, opt for a round glass table. That way, you’ll have the space-saving qualities of a round table top with the added visual lightness from the glass. Styled with stackable chairs like the Riva, you can always add a couple more seats when needed and then stack and store the chairs when not in use.  

Great For: Adding Some Colour

Glass dining tables are really versatile items. The lack of colour actually means that they can be introduced into a whole variety of different schemes. Glass is a good opportunity to introduce a splash of colour to your space through your choice of dining chairs.   Whether you choose leather, plastic or fabric chairs, the tactile material and colour of the seat can be seen from all angles. This makes a glass table perfect for showcasing your dining chairs.  

Great For: Mixing and Matching

Having a glass table doesn’t always mean just a glass top. A table with glass legs means you can have the material or colour you’d like on the surface, but you get the space-saving a visual lightness from the glass legs. A table like the Aria has such a style impact and ‘wow factor’ thanks to the glass legs. It looks as though the top is floating in the air! If you'd like some more tips on buying your dream dining table, be sure to take a look at our Ultimate Dining Table Buying Guide.

How to Become Your Own Interior Designer
July 27, 2018 at 5:00 pm 2
So you're finally in your new house, however, the dated decor leaves little to be desired. You're thinking to yourself "it's going to take a qualified interior designer to sort this place out".

STOP RIGHT THERE!

There's no need to fork out for an interior designer when you could quite easily do it yourself! Plus, you'll have great fun along the way and learn a few new skills. Follow our ten steps and you'll be well on your way to creating the home of your dreams.  

1. Focus on What You Like in Your Home

  The first thing to do is to focus on what you like to do in your home. Think about how it gets used, or how you would like to use it. Perhaps you'd like a cosy TV and games room for the kids or a quiet spot where you can sit and read. This may require a bit of re-configuring but that's why creating your dream home is all about.  

Luxe Chaise and Ripple Glass Coffee Table in Gold

  It's all these considerations can form a 'Wishlist'. Your wishlist will end up being very similar to a brief that you would give to an interior designer, so it's a good place to start even when you're doing it yourself.  

2. Don't be Afraid to Borrow Ideas

  Create a Pinterest board of looks you love and details you would like to incorporate. Don’t just take inspiration from the internet, though. Get out and about, visit art galleries, beautiful shops, friends homes and restaurants and take snaps of the areas which really catch your eye. Remembering these places and ideas can help you understand how form, texture, colour, scale, lighting and space can be combined to create something you like.    

3. Bring out the Best in What You Have

  Try to bring out the best in what you already have and work with it. What are its best features? Perhaps it’s a beautiful fireplace, an incredible view or a high ceiling? Accentuate these features with lighting and furniture arrangement to create a dramatic focal point. If you have a modern house, there's no point trying to make it ornate or trying to create a 'heritage' look. You have been blessed with a blank canvas to create the modern home you've always envisioned- be it glam, or minimal.

4. Get the Basics Right, and the Rest Will Fall into Place

  Although it's tempting to get carried away with thoughts of the fun stuff like wallpaper and soft furnishings, you really need to think carefully about the basics first. Create boards of flooring, tiles, wallpapers and paint samples to make sure you're happy with your chosen colours and finishes. Once you have the basics figured out, the little details will simply fall into place.

5. Select Your Furniture Wisely

  Just because you like the look of a piece of furniture doesn't necessarily mean it will look good in your space. Make sure you always measure your room before investing in furniture. To really make sure there are no errors, draw out a plan of the room to scale on squared paper. Then you can draw in the furniture so you can see exactly how it will look. At Danetti we make this easier, by always providing full measurements for our products. It's also worthwhile measuring your doorways and stairwells - the last thing you want is for your furniture to arrive and then not to fit through the door!

6. Think About Your House as a Whole

  Too many people isolate one room, give it a certain vibe and colour scheme, and then chose something totally different in the room next door. Rooms shouldn't all be decorated the same, but it does help if there is some harmony. This is a particular skill of an interior designer, but it's a useful habit to get into.  

Finn Barstools

  You want your living spaces to be vibrant and energetic, such as kitchens and playrooms, but keeping your resting rooms more subdued, like your living room and bedroom. Stick to a harmonious colour palette and a similar style throughout. The best part of this is that your furniture should then be interchangeable between rooms. Meaning you can refresh your home whenever you see fit with things you already own.  

7. Don't Forget Lighting

  In most modern homes spotlights are the preferred option. They are great as they distribute light evenly across a room and don't get in the way. However, they can be quite harsh in the evenings and don't offer much character. If you have spotlights, think about adding a few tasteful lamps to your home. these will give out a softer light and promote a more relaxed home.  

Acute Console Table

  Where possible use your pendant lights to create a statement or a focal point. This could be a cluster of low hanging pendants over a dining table or a beaded chandelier in a grand entranceway. Lighting will create mood and give a space personality, so be sure to give it some consideration.  

8. Keep Your Budget in Mind at all Times

  You don't want to run out of money halfway through a renovation project, so set yourself a budget and stick to it. Some things are worth investing in, such as flooring and your larger furniture like sofas and dining tables. Where trends change so frequently there is no point spending hundreds on your soft furnishings and decorative accessories. These smaller trend items are more cost effective so buy what you like, but don't spend the earth as you'll probabley be bored after a few years!  

Robin Sofa Range

  Remember when spending on any electrical appliances and gadgets that new technology soon becomes old technology, so it's probably not worth spending that much on the latest fad- do your research and invest in timeless items.  

9. Be Professional in Your Dealings with Tradesmen

  Before committing to a tradesman, be sure to have done your research, have a few recommendations and get a few different quotes. You should also ask for references and ask to see their previous projects. If they are good, then they shouldn't object. It's useful to put your objectives in writing, as this can be a useful document fall back on if things do not turn out as expected. Builders don't have the same artistic vision as interior designers, so be sure to keep a close eye and communicate every step of the way- too much communication will be better in the long run and save any unwanted surprises!

10. Don't be Afraid to Ask for Help

  Sometimes your creativity may run dry, and that's ok! Being innovative and artistic all the time isn't easy. Look to those who inspire you and maybe ask for help or advise. Independent furniture retailers such (like us here at Danetti) are very familiar with the process of furnishing a home successfully. We would be more than happy to help you find the pieces that will work well together and bring out the best in your home. Just give us a call and we will happily suggest a few beautiful options.   Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for Interior Inspiration.

Outdoor Patio Chairs – Get Ready for Summer!
June 8, 2018 at 4:03 pm 0
Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than sunning yourself on a sleek garden chair! Long gone are the days of boring green plastic seating. Our collection of outdoor patio chairs and garden seating have been designed to revitalise both you and your garden space. So sit back and relax this summertime on some stylish seating that has social dining at its heart...  

Lola Garden Chair 

The curved shape and simple design of the Lola Garden Chair will create such a welcoming and convivial feel around any garden table. The contemporary look of this garden chair will instantly freshen up the feel of your outdoor space.  

Get The Look:

Here we've styled the Lola chair alongside the Palermo 2 to 4 seater garden table. This set is perfect if you're a little pushed for space, or if you don't want your outdoor space fully occupied by your dining table. With the option to seat two to four people, or to use the table as a centrepiece for drinks and snacks, this set up is incredibly versatile.  

Edie Garden Chair 

The Edie Garden Chair is a modern take on traditional garden seating. Easy to clean, lightweight yet durable, the Edie chair ticks plenty of the right boxes!  

Get The Look:

Outdoor patio chairs are incredibly versatile. Here we've styled the Edie chairs alongside the Fresco table and Palermo corner bench to create a welcoming and sociable outdoor space. The combination of the chairs and bench mixes and matches dining with lounging, while also allowing you to pull up a few extra spaces when you have more guests to seat.  

Edie Garden Armchair

If you're after slightly more support when seated, we suggest choosing a garden armchair. Coordinating with the Edie Garden Chair, the Edie Garden Armchair has space for you to rest your arms so you can really sit back and relax. You can also mix and match dining chairs and armchairs for a stylised look.  

Get The Look:

Garden armchairs are a great fit styled at either end of your dining table (this goes for indoors as well). Doing this gives the set more focus. Here we've styled the Edie with the Palermo table and bench. By combing a backless bench with the two armchairs, the look remains open and inviting yet seamlessly coordinated.  

Skye Garden Chair  

The Skye Garden Chair is such a comfy plastic seat due to the curvature of the seat back. The fluid shape means the chairs can be easily stacked for handy space saving and storage while maintaining a sleek design. The open style back is also a great feature for keeping your garden space looking open and inviting.  

Get The Look:

By pairing the crisp white frosted glass finish of the Palermo table with the colourful plastic Sky chair,, the colours really pop. Matcha green is an ideal choice if you want to coordinate with more earthy elements in your garden, such as plants and decking, while the freshness of the white table adds a hint of modern flair.
