In the past I have always tended to stick to the same style of interiors and to what I know and love. One of things that I love most about blogging is I am constantly being inspired and introduced to new styles, looks and ideas. When the lovely folks over at Habitat asked me to style up one of their new collection armchairs in my home, I saw it as a bit of a challenge to bring together an eclectic look.
The Abel armchair is curvy and deep with Scandinavian style legs that give it a mid-century feel. I teamed it up with an Ercol pebble side table (that I found in a skip last year!) and my G-Plan sideboard, which highlight the mid-century vibe, as well as a House of Rym cushion and my Turkish Kilim rug that add pattern and colour to the look. I love mixing different styles and textures in my living room as it makes it feel more cosy and less generic than it would otherwise, bearing in mind I live in a new build flat with no architectural features or character.
The grey works well with my painted floor and is a perfect neutral to be layered with textiles.
I’ve now got my eye on the Askem grey wool sofa as Otto has ruined our sofa (I should have been so much stricter about not letting him up on it!). I’m going to have to start persuading Jules…
P.S. You can buy House of Rym cushions and blankets in my shop…
