Yellow – Summer Favourite

Bright and vibrant we love Yellow

Yellow as an accent or primary colour in an interior scheme can lift and energise a space. Mixed with grey hues it offers a vibrant and fresh feel. See a pick of our favourite yellow products –

HAY Dot Cushions
HAY Dot Cushion in bright yellow has one light coloured button on one side and another button in a purple hue on the reverse. Brighten up any scheme with one of these cool cushions.

Muuto Bulky Teaset
Tea from a curvy yellow teapot – perfect!!!

Vitra Tipton
Tipton the forward rocking chair – love this in Mustard from Barber & Osgerby

Wrong for HAY Hackney Sofa
The Hackney Sofa has a unique fold-able upholstered frame allowing the generous 3-seater to be manoeuvred easily.  Even better it comes in a statement yellow kvadrat fabric.

Kartell Masters Chair
The Hybrid chair from Kartell. Great for Indoor or Outdoor use the mustard colour brightens up the inside or outside of your home.

Loft Polo Skid Stool
Good bar stools are hard to come by and we think this 1970’s design classic by Robin Day is great – especially in yellow!

Spring Into The Outdoors – how to plan a new outdoors for Summer 2014

This year, live outside. Extend the size of your home by using your outdoor space to its best advantage. In the spring and summer, your outdoors can be an extension of your indoors. Imagine enjoying an evening around a cosy outdoor fireplace, lounging in style. Or taking a nap in a luxurious armchair whilst gazing at the stars. We think there are three key areas to consider when planning your outdoors for this summer: furniture, flow and lighting.

Furniture

No longer simply the realm of deck chairs or rattan, today designers are able to use innovative materials to bring the comfort of indoors, out. Take the Kartell Pop Outdoor Sofa, which now comes in a range of Sunbrella fabrics.

Flow

Remove the distinction between indoor and out. With doors flung wide, stepping onto your deck, terrace or lawn should feel a seamless transition. Outdoor fabrics for awnings and furniture, can match your indoor colour scheme. We love Sunbrella outdoor fabrics  for their palette of 55 solids, influenced by a return to the natural, full of subtle nuances of pure white, ivory, taupe, coffee or ochre brown.  Danish fabric company Kvadrat do some stunning
outdoor fabrics too.

Lighting

Forget the glare of a security light. Today’s outdoor lighting can enhance mood and tone from dusk to darkness. The Foscarini Solar Outdoor Floor Light works as lighting, a table, or a contemporary hearth to gather around Or try an Artemide Dioscuri wall light for its soft diffused light.
