Your living space is your world and, perhaps more than ever, we need to make sure the place where we spend much of our lives is as beautiful and comfortable a sanctuary as it possibly can be. We demand so much of our homes – functionality and luxury; something to soothe and delight us; somewhere to relax and entertain and so much more. It’s a place that must cater to all our needs, desires and moods. Interior design isn’t just for professionals and creative minds, either – whether your taste is contemporary or classic, timeless, innovative or a mix of styles there’s a plethora of products and services to help you realise your design dreams, whether it’s a major refurb, a spruce up or everything in between.
Here’s some inspiration to help bring your dream home to life.
The velvet trend is here to stay. There’s a way to work it that fits almost any style – the key is to make it work for you. A luxurious and tactile fabric, velvet has all the style appeal but also feels great, making it perfect for upholstery.
In the kitchen, velvet works really well as an accent. Typically kitchens are hard and linear, with lots of cold surfaces and so the colour options can be limited. Adding an injection of texture and colour with velvet is where you can bring some of our personality to the room. Danetti’s exclusive Form Velvet range offers both barstools and chairs with a selection of metal finishes so you can match them to your kitchen.
Velvet is the also the ideal material for creating a cosy mood in spaces that are all about comfort.
