Everyone loves a good accessory and your bathroom is no exception. Give your bathroom a more personalized touch with a variety of accessories to choose from, including soap dispensers, bath towels, rugs, and even toilet paper. You can liven up your look with eye-catching wallpapers full of patterns, designs and bold colours that turn any drab John into a spa-like sanctuary. The stunning creations from The House of Scalamandre offer a modern aesthetic with captivating designs that exude an artistic flair that will take your bathroom decor to a new level.

KitchenIndustrial Accents Anyone?

Backsplash, open ceilings, and exposed brick walls, oh my! When it comes to keeping modern with your kitchen industrial accents are your friends. An exposed brick wall, lots of open space and sticking to the elements (all things copper, wood and steel)  can bring a breath of fresh air to an otherwise lifeless area. You can even use some lighting and little new hardware to anchor this look altogether, think concrete countertops and copper pulls. This design by Maryland-based designer Anthony Wilder Architecture and Interiors beautifully uses concrete countertops to execute this luxurious look.

Living RoomIt’s not easy being Green

Screen Shot 2022-06-07 at 12.38.42 PMA little greenery goes a long way when it comes to creating a more peaceful zen-like appeal to your living room. Not only do plants help with decor they also bring a sense of calm while adding life and colour to a space without detracting from anything else in the room. Plants such as the Dragon Tree and Rubber Plant are excellent for air purification, very low maintenance and even help with humidity all while beautifying your home. If you’re interested in a more standout choice, the Peace Lily is for you, as it makes for a wonderful ornamental plant. With wonderful benefits like promoting restful sleep (hello insomniacs!), removing mould spores from the air, and has even been regarded as being a good luck charm, bringing peace and prosperity.

BedroomA little space never hurt anyone

Nobody enjoys a sea of clutter and chaos and most definitely not in what most people would call their sanctuary. By using a mixture of built-in storage and some hidden panelling you can bring a sense of order and organization to your bedroom. To create a more streamlined effect that blends in, you can try hidden bespoke panels that touch to open, built-in drawers on the sides of the bed or even headboard storage for your nik-naks and books, like this solid mango wood and back metal industrial headboard by MANUFACTURE sold by Maisons Du Monde.
