New Year, new home! It may be the season for redecorating, and with temperatures dropping outside, it’s vital your interiors can battle the cold with their cosiness. Read on for our guide on how to merge your modern designs with lived-in luxury accessories to create statement interiors that will transform your house, into a home.
The ultimate juxtaposition
Lived-in accessories have a tendency to bring warmth to any interior. They have an old-fashioned, eclectic charm about them that steeps your home in a sense of nostalgia. It’s an effortless way of bringing an element of intimacy to your furniture, making it seem treasured and personal, without losing its opulence.
When you combine this with contemporary designs, it creates the ultimate juxtaposition. You should allow your home to change with current trends and climates, whilst investing in treasures that can remain part of your interior forever.
Investing in lived-in luxury doesn’t have to be expensive. It may be more time-consuming, but perusing your favourite vintage shops might result in finding the perfect pieces to transform your home.
Winner of Amara IBAs ‘Best Use of Photography’ award –Tamsyn Morgans– is a popular advocate of lived-in accessories – especially when they are authentic vintage.
“I love to add character and depth to my home by sourcing vintage accessories from markets, fairs and auctions. Whether it’s artwork, fabric or reclaimed pieces repurposed in some way, they add history and patina. Surrounding yourself with items and textiles that have a history, makes for an eclectic and beautiful home.”
Your sofa is the perfect place to start if you want to add a touch of lived-in luxe to your home. We recommend classic shapes with a loose covered elegance. Take our Aster collection, for example. A classic shape, paired with the aged appearance of its fabric style, creates the ultimate lived-in look centrepiece you can build your home around.
