Geometrics and interiors

Geometrics are still big in interiors and as you can see from these gorgeous images there is more than one way to include them in your scheme.

I’m sure you’ll agree they look spectacular – the colours ping, the shapes add interest and all completely unique. Well, you know where I’m going now:)

ACCESSORIES FOR A SPRING UPDATE

The sun is shining and what a great time to contemplate updating your interiors.

However, if time is of the essence and you begrudge the upheaval why not transform your interiors with a few new accessories.

Cushions are a great place to start and there are a plethora of designs from Scandi to digital, from animal prints to typography and so on to choose from on the web and in the shops.

CrushCushion has a two-sided design to give you more flexibility and innovation. The cushions share designs from yesteryear and current designer fabrics and will add colour and interest.

So, let me make it easy for you and save you scouring the web for THAT cushion you have been searching for and, as promised from my previous blog, here are a few images from the current CrushCushion Collection  –

 

CRUSHCUSHION COLOUR INSPIRATION

How amazing are these colours?! No I hear you say! Are you mad!

ZINGY, COLOURFUL AND UPLIFTING

I have used these colours and more as inspiration for my latest SPRING/SUMMER Collection of CrushCushions – coming out soon on crush-cube.co.uk!

You will be first to see them – promise!

If cushions are not your thing, and you’ve been dying to change the colour of an old vase/bowl/candle stick let these colours shine through your scheme and add a bit sparkle. An easy way to achieve this is through paint. No brushes needed. Simply spray! Start off by spraying a thin layer and build it up a layer at a time and create your own personalised accessory. Happy spraying.

I’m going to do three candle sticks – watch this space and let’s compare x

SPRING REVAMP

This is the time to think about refreshing the old paint on the walls or choosing a completely different colour scheme. It’s like buying a new pair of shoes for an already worn outfit – it changes the look completely!

Whether you choose Spring pastels or a darker hue or simply go for the minimal look and choose white, first look at the furniture you already have and think how you can work in the new colour to balance out the finished look.

It might be a case of simply moving furniture around to tie in the new scheme or it might be a case of painting existing furniture to give it new life or, simply adding a few accessories like new cushions.

Let your imagination run wild, be unqiue and take inspiration from the world of fashion! The prints and colours out there are fantastic and if you are having trouble choosing I will be more than happy to help. Call Francesca on 07799885796 or email francesca@crushinteriors.co.uk or go onto crush-cube.co.uk for inspiration.

In the meantime here are a few designs of mine that might stir the ole juices.

You may think this a little extreme but just wanted to get my point across that with a little imagination and creativity you can create an individual style.

With this in mind, think interiors, colour and textures. CrushCube can be dressed to impress with its removable zipped cover it can transform into a talking point or simply something beautiful to look at.

THE COLLECTION – VINTAGE/RETRO

Sourcing vintage/retro fabrics has become my latest fad – just loving it … beautiful abstract prints that hold good today or colourful florals that Aunty Betty would have donated her housekeeping for.

This is the latest Collection at crush-cube.co.uk but of course it’s not me just to use one fabric! I’ve set them alongside lovely Designers Guild’s fabrics to create unique, useable covers.

Here are a few to get your taste buds going (the full range has yet to be put onto the website but you can view them on my facebook page facebook.com/crushandcubes in the meantime

Cirkle, a lovely PR company, commissioned ten CrushCubes and two CrushCouches for their brain storming room!

The owner of the company wanted something original, colourful, comfortable and moveable! CrushCube has worked a treat –  ”The team simply love
them and they have definitely contributed to us feeling more creative in our
office environment.”

The Designers Guild fabrics are eye catching and certainly colourful and the zipped covers enable the client to restyle and maintain them.

What do you think? AreYOU brave enough to install a CrushCube or two in your space? Check out crush-cube.co.uk or facebook.com/crushandcubes to see the latest instalments.

THE ONE!

I found myself today in a well known designer trade outlet store lusting after the amazing array of brightly coloured handbags – which one do I choose? I loved them all! How do I choose the ONE? So I held them up against myself in the mirror to see which ONE felt and looked right for me, just as you would with a CrushCube.

Look at the style and colours in your space and choose ONE that feels right for you ‘cos once you’ve got that cube in your space you’ll smile every time you see it and use it – just like that fav handbag – beautiful and practical at the same time!
