The Ideal Home Show is taking place at Olympia London between the 17th March and 2nd April, and two of our models are featuring pride of place!
Our Little Jon sofa in Tor Damson, and Tom Collins chair upholstered in the gorgeous Kitty McCall Ola Berry fabric, have been used in Ideal Home Show’s Innovation Home! Leading interior stylist, Sophie Robinson, who fronted BBC show The Great Interior Design Challenge and has recently taken up a new role as interior designer on DIY SOS, is the skilled stylist responsible for this amazing show home.
Sophie’s design is all about demonstrating how to create a beautiful open plan living space, and how to use colour effectively in different areas of an open plan room.
The following quote is taken from Sophie’s own blog post about the project, which can be found here. In this extract, she explains different ways to create colourful focal points in an open plan space:
“I think a scheme has much more personality and verve when you blend different patterns and styles together. A mixture of patterned and plain scatter cushions on the sofa, create a lovely bit of interest. The deep damson Little Jon wool sofa really helps to anchor the space. A gallery wall of pictures is an all time favourite styling trick of mine which allows you to make a strong visual focal point. It’s important to do this in an open plan space – it kind of works like a punctuation mark. Think about having a few key focal points in the room that help draw the eye. In this room it’s the sofa with gallery wall, moving round to the bright patterned Tom Collins armchair in Ola Berry fabric through to the striking Sophie Abbott painting above the sideboard. The fabrics and the painting all help to tell the colour story and link different parts of the room together.”
