Dark and Stormy
We don’t know whether it’s because of all the snow and dark nights we are having at the moment, but we’ve certainly been inspired by Elle Decoration’s February 2013 Shopping Palette.
Full of inky blues, deep aubergines and muddy greys, this is the colour palette we’re chanelling in our homes right now – so suited to this time of year.
Modern yet sophisticated, dark but still maintaining a fresh and new feel, we love it! Here are our choice of products that channel the dark and stormy theme perfectly. The key item is the Fritz Hansen Favn Sofa in dark blue, a beautiful piece that radiates luxury.
We add texture with the beautifully soft GAN Sail Rug and accessorize heavily with cushions, glassware and trinkets. Finish this look with some luxurious metallic lights in brass and gold, they will really stand out against the inky backdrop. Our picks are the brass BestLite BL2 Table Lamp for a low, reading light and the Artek A330 Pendant Lamp for an all-over glow.
Featured below are the Fritz Hansen Favn Sofa, Artek A330 Pendant Lamp,
Hay Mega Dot Bed Cover, Schonbuch Line Coat Stand, E15 Calvert Coffee Table,
BestLite BL2 Table Lamp, Hay Dot 2x2 Cushion, GAN Sail Rug, Vitra Slow Chair and Ottoman
and the Hay Kaleido Tray.
