Happy New Year!
I hope that 2017 has got off to a great start for you all.
To kick things off for Kroma, I have been working on some new styling ideas for our home living space to give it a sophisticated lift. I don’t know whether it’s being married, starting a new year or just plain growing older but I have noticed my style taste changing dramatically over the last few months. My once rainbow world of white Scandinavian backdrops filled with an assortment of colourful decor and equally colourful patterns has been stripped back a little (well quite a lot actually) and I feel myself being drawn to calmer, cooler tones that are just as appealing yet a little more “liveable”.
Long gone are the vivid fluorescent hues of corals and yellow and this year I’m making way to a new home vibe. Now, I’m not quite there yet with the #styleitdark vibes and still like my white backdrop, but for Winter into Spring I’m taking inspiration from my love for Palm Springs style and mixing it with bohemian textures and western prints….So welcome Modern Western!
Think emerald green hues, soft nudes, powder blue skies, Cactus Plants, Desert Sands, Cow print fabrics, shaggy rugs, brushed gold metal, native prints, wall hangings, woven baskets, protea flowers and eucalyptus leaves.
Think Joshua Tree landscape, California sunshine and just plain cosy, chilled living!
Textures are all a go with soft suede, animal hide, velvet, faux fur, linen and wool!
I am also loving the idea of rug “layering” where you basically layer one rug over another to add more dimension and texture to your interior. This particularly works well if you have a large plain flat rug that can be layered with a smaller patterned rug.
So, here’s our room plan as well as product mood board. Some of the pieces we have already invested in for our space and the rest (or something very similar) are hopefully on their way into our space over the next few months.
I will be keeping you updated on the progress of our space as we go along! If you’re interested in any of the products, everything is listed below!
*TIP: Remember re-vamping doesn’t always mean spending loads. Opt for less expensive furniture by buying on ebay or second hand stores. Also, sell your unwanted pieces first!
