Furnishing a home can be hard work, but choosing the decor and finishing touches is where you really get to have some fun. Freedom offers a huge range of items for every room in the house – all you have to do is express your own unique style in the pieces you choose.
Living it up
The first place to get stuck into when decorating your living room is with the perfect rug. Rugs pull a space together and add complementary colour and eye-catching patterns to a subdued living room. If you’re after a cosy feel in a traditional room, try one of the extra-large Persian prints like the Aaliya floor rug. Its soft colours and design add character without dominating, injecting a serene blue to the theme. You can now pick up this colour with similar blues and contrasting on-trend palettes like rust or mink. Toss a throw like the Iva in terracotta over the back of an armchair or your sofa for easy access on chilly evenings. Now stack a combination of cushions in different sizes, prints and block colours on the couch for a layered feel. The rectangular Boyce, bold Marika and two textured, matching cushions like the Charlette all work extremely well together. You can’t go wrong with additional seating or footrests by adding a pouffe like the Elden – it adds an eclectic feel to the space especially if you have opted for muted sofa cushions.
Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, so decorate it as such with rich materials and soft lighting. Table lamps like the Troba in rattan create a natural, organic feel when placed on pedestals, perfect for a restful theme. Floor lamps are an interesting addition to the bedroom and allow for extra ambient lighting. Place a design like the Archibold in the corner, leaning over an occasional armchair for an elegant reading or dressing space. Mirrors can be placed in the bedroom to widen or lengthen the room and add a little drama. The unusually shaped Essence mirror creates a focal point when placed above a vanity table. A larger piece like the Solene floor mirror means getting ready is a cinch. To add instant style, place a large artificial plant beside it for an exotic finish. Now for some gorgeous wall art to tie up the look. If you have the space, consider creating a gallery wall of different sizes, frames and subject matter, all hung together. Mix up styles like an abstract Maiko Nagao with photography like the Palm Springs piece and some typography posters like the C’est La Vie.
Bathrooms shouldn’t be ignored just because they are practical rooms. A fabulous bathroom makes a statement and urges you to have a long soak in the tub. Accessorise with matching canisters, tumblers and soap dishes for a smart finish. You can use this colour [what colour?] as an anchor colour or simply as an accent depending on your palette. Echo it in luxuriously thick bath mats, hand towels and bath sheets like the textured Keano and display them prominently with a standalone towel rack like the modern Outline.
If you have a broad window sill or a ledge around your bath, create a lush indoor jungle with an array of artificial plants in different planters. We love nestling together the Rogue Giant Bird of Paradise in the Allima with the Spider Plant in the Jose planter.
Now for the pampering, finish off your bathroom with a collection of our indulgent lotions and candles like the Ecoya Hand and Body in blood orange and a couple of the Therapy candles in wild mint and lime, clustered together on an contemporary Aswad tray. Dreamy.
Makeover your kitchen with a curation of stylish collectables
Give your kitchen an instant makeover with a few signature decor pieces that will want to make you linger a little longer. Smart bins like the Becker pedal set the tone for a smart modern space – add monochrome tea towels like the Lucille range for extra colour structure.
Storage is key in the kitchen and by choosing a matching storage set you’ll create a clean, organised look. Try the Santana canisters for a pop of colour and add tea bags, coffee, sugar and even rice or flour. Warm up the space with a hard wearing rug in a textured, natural weave like the Orissa floor rug to catch crumbs and spills or make a statement with a leather hide for a kitchen worthy of a glossy magazine.
