Living and Dining Rooms
In 2017 understated luxury will be seen in many living rooms, with welcoming and warm interiors mixing antique and vintage furniture into modern designs. The open communal living spaces where friends and family gather to eat, work and entertain giving a relaxed and inviting feel to your well-loved home.
Green is to go-to colour for 2017 and anything goes from fresh lime green to muted shades of olive and jewel-like green-blue. To add that finishing touch we can help you choose the perfect door handle, door knob or furniture fittings to complement your beautiful interior.
For your luxurious, comfortable living space furnished in light, muted tones, choose a luxurious finish for your door handles too, such as antique brass, burnished bronze, antique silver or real pewter. For a warm feel and look you can't go wrong with quality leather, hand-stitched and made with care by Turnstyle Designs in beautiful Devon. Taking on a natural patina over time, the leather will age gracefully and give your room that wonderful traditional and authentic feel of a classic British home.
A more modern door handle can also work with this interior. Mixing vintage with modern can really work in a home where comfort and practicality are key. Muted tones in furniture and on walls can look wonderful mixed with chromes, nickels and stainless steel. Match your door handles to your furniture, window and light fittings to achieve a cohesive look, blending seamlessly with the features in the room.
If your doors are large or feature period style rim locks, then door knobs are the natural choice. Brass is always a perfect choice for a period property with polished nickel now being the favourite to achieve a modern, yet classic look. As well as the finish, don't forget the shape of the knob as this is also really important when choosing your door furniture. Oval, round and ball shaped knobs are often seen, but don't forget about the 'sausage and pea', 'beehive' and Georgian rope' designs which give that splendid period feel to a classic interior. Porcelain too has always been used with rim locks and has remained a truly authentic and popular choice to this day.
We all want a quiet sanctuary to escape to at the end of a busy day. A bedroom that is warm and cosy with a touch of elegance is most people's idea of heaven. So don't forget that the finishing touches, like door handles, wardrobe knobs and handles for bedside cabinets and chests of drawers make a real difference to the look and feel of the room.
A beautiful cut crystal cupboard knob adorning your free-standing or fitted furniture will give your bedroom a touch of glitz and glamour in a cool and understated way. Choose a knob with a chrome or nickel rose for a modern feel and pair this with door handles in the same finish, giving the scheme a 'pulled together' look. Match these with your bedside lights and chandelier-like light fitting to complete the scheme.
Prefer a more traditional feel to your bedroom? Then go for pewter, antique brass or bronze to add warmth. Simple designs such as the Victorian scroll on a backplate or an elegantly-shaped handle on a round rose will complement an antique or vintage-style bedroom in an unobtrusive way, giving the room a calm and comfortable ambience.
To add some warmth and texture, choose a fabulous wallpaper from the stunning designs trending in 2017. Raffia and rattan are materials making a comeback in 2017 and these are not only natural and warm but also help to achieve a beautiful layered setting which complements a luxury bedroom perfectly.
Now, position your most beautiful and most beloved pieces in the room to add character and personality unique to you and the job is done!
