Welcoming spring into your home
Living at home
Fresh air, the warm sun and multi-coloured furnishings are the must-have essentials for a home that’s in the mood for spring. An energetic mix to kick start spring!
Don’t you just love spring? Sunlight gets more intense and warms both body and soul. The days stretch out, gifting you extra hours for your leisure time, and the weather becomes milder. Opening the window and letting spring into your home is a good mood-booster and it puts you in mind of renovating your furnishings and reorganising your home first and foremost. Let’s see how you can prepare to welcome the warmer weather, starting with design!
Far be it from us to force you to turn your house upside down for a spring clean, but spring is the time of year people tend to want change, to enjoy their home with renewed enthusiasm. So, get rid of what’s unnecessary, such as those items of furniture you bought on-line during a bout of shopaholic frenzy, and take a peek at the latest design novelties and solutions to make the most of neglected spaces. This is where the fun starts: picking out your cupboard, dresser or a piece of furniture that will become part of your home, and of your family. Or choose a more versatile solution, such as the Status Wall System in the Formalia model, which is available in 3 different colours - Titanium, Rust or Black – and with some spectacular solutions: drawers, doors, semi open-fronted elements and pull-out trays. It’s the perfect fit for the entrance hall, an as yet unused corner or to give a new lease on life to your sitting room, to extend its use for a few more springs!
In the kitchen, objects are often exposed and make the room look untidy, although functional. In these cases, the Qi ideas for the kitchen will find the right solution for everything. The containers in this product line blend in with the room without being too cumbersome to look at, allowing for customised, yet minimal, order.
Is your laundry area the most difficult to keep neat and tidy? No problem: Laundry Space offers plenty of ways to organise the space, striking the perfect balance between laundry to wash, garments to be ironed and clothes that are ready to be put away in your wardrobe. For instance, the Trolley baskets with wheels, exclusively designed by Idelfonso Colombo, available in the same decorative melamine finishes as the doors used. Perfectly practical!
With the warmer weather on its way, the desire to fill our home with new hues and to refresh your combinations makes us all feel a little like artists. And when creativity beckons, a healthy helping of colour is a must. Starting with small things, like chairs and stools, which can make the room instantly cool! Painter Young is a painted steel chair with a polypropylene or decorative melamine seat and back, available in multiple colour variants. To keep at home to add a splash of youth to your classic dining table!
If it’s time for you to replace your table, Dandy Plus offers lots of spring-like, bright pop hues to implement gracefully along the profile. The table is available fixed or extensible. Coral Red and Mustard Yellow, in addition to the classic colours, are the chic offerings that will bring your furniture into the new millennium!
For the bathroom, the trendy hues become an opportunity to liven up the room and modernise it. Formalia offers several variants, including warm and welcoming Rust, which is perfect for the relaxation area.
Taking spring indoors can include the fragrances and energy that nature can convey, becoming a game of balances for the entire home. This is where our beloved plants can contribute towards making this space a private oasis, devised for a healthy mind and body within the confines of our home. One great way to give a room a new lease on life is to place small plant pots on the free work surfaces, trying to match the colours of the room with those of the flowers and pots. Or you could place a large floor-standing plant in corners that are flooded with natural light. They will add a green touch to the dimmest rooms!
There’s nothing that shouts “spring” more than plants and flowers, but the textures afforded by materials used for furnishings also participate in creating that relaxed atmosphere. Furniture with a finish or even a material that is natural, such as the Essential table in painted Nodato Oak veneered MDF, affords a fresh atmosphere, like the sea breeze in May. The room immediately looks welcoming and harmonious!
