Lust Have

What we wouldn’t do for a home like this!  It manages to be all things good:  modern but warm, unique but not “try hard”, sophisticated but fun AND we could imagine actually living in this apace...it feels real.  Let‘s tick the boxes as to why it’s so great.

  • White plus timber – a classic combination of cool and warm tones, this is how and why the room manages to be crisp but still inviting 
  • Texture – notice the fabulous sculpture above the traditional fireplace - totally unexpected and cool.  Cracked timber table, sisal rug and aged leather complete the story
  • High Ceilings  - something this daring and strong would not work with low ceilings
  •  Geometry – everything about this space seems to be about the lines and shapes: sculptural chairs and stools, round mirror, square windows.  The lines of the ceiling and ladder complete the drawing...a masterpiece!  
Eco Chic can furnish a few goodies if this is the look you are going for.  Check out our SantaBarbara Coffee Table, Oxford Aged Leather Club Chairs and Lightwood DiningTable.  For the finishing touch we have lots of textured natural weave rugs like the Nest Hemp Rug and loads of accent cushions with tropical themes to select from.

Sitting Pretty



·         Who doesn’t love watermelon! Even if pink isn’t your favourite, this red/pink colour will add vibrancy to any area, especially with white as a backdrop, as shown in this picture from Home Beautiful.

·         Fresh, light colours go perfectly with ones of similar density. Notice how the green lends itself to the pink and watermelon scheme while also reinforcing the ‘outdoors’ space.

·         Try to keep in mind to incorporate most colours that the area already has. By choosing this colour scheme, the floor, which might have turned towards the brown side, has been lifted and given new life.

WANT THE LOOK WITH ECO CHIC? Try our gorgeous Bangalow lounge chairs which can be used in any fresh outdoor covered space. Add a few cushions from our Escapade outdoor range, a beautiful ice bucket like the Lodge or Thorn, and you will be sitting pretty too!
