Sea Blues

We’re constantly looking to nature for design and decor inspiration, and what could be more perfect inspiration than the many moods, and hues, of the sea?  Sandy beaches, summer sun and azure seas … perfect inspiration for creating interiors that are brimming with calm and that holiday feeling.

Silly Season

Can you believe it’s that time of year already!?  We don’t know about you, but 2018 was go, go, go from 1 January, and we’re looking forward to a few cocktails, parties and a well deserved decompress! 

Whether you’re planning a big get together, or a simple gathering of family and friends, we love the below decor and table ideas. From uncomplicated scatter cushions and a rug on the beach, to a long table with beautiful blooms, we hope you feel inspired to enjoy the silly season!

Summer Loving

There’s nothing like a change of season to have us itching to spring clean, revamp and refresh.  We’re currently taking inspiration from summery illustrations and prints, creating mood boards that inspire (from the bright and bold, to sorbet hues, and beauty whites and nudes). Which is your favourite?

Spring is in the air

It might be a few weeks too early to start talking about Spring, but we can’t help ourselves! The days are getting longer, the mornings a little lighter and the first signs of glorious Spring blossoms are on their way.

Not only the time of warmer temperatures, Spring also symbolises rejuvenation and newness, and we love bringing that fresh feeling into our homes.  What better time than Spring to reinvent your interiors?  And it doesn’t have to cost you a bomb either!  There’s nothing like a new coast of paint, a reshuffle of furniture, a new scatter cushion or two, or a stunning new rug to put a spring in your step!

Hygge your home this winter

Some refer to hygge as an “art of creating intimacy” (either with yourself, friends or in your home). While there’s no one English word to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge – cosiness, charm, happiness, ‘contentness’, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness.

So how can you bring this cosiness into your home this winter? The simple act of lighting a candle while drinking your coffee in the morning, enjoying a home-cooked meal with friends, or making a ritual of brewing tea in a teapot with a china teacup, can all make a big difference to one’s spirit, and lift domestic life from drudgery to art form.
Apart from candles and crackling fireplaces, there are other ways to make your home a refuge this winter. Lighting is very important (think floor lamps and soft, indirect lighting, rather than harsh, bright light), and layering with comforting, warm textures (wool throws, velvet scatter cushions). Choose a warm colour palette for extra cosiness, and display those nostalgic vintage items – the Danes believe that household objects should be more than just things; they should have emotional value.
 


Finally, invest in natural fabrics in neutral tones, like sisal or jute rugs to create a warm, comforting atmosphere.

Make your own rug

Sometimes you have something very specific in mind when it comes to a new rug – border colour, type of material, exact dimensions – and matching these can be difficult.  That’s why we love Rebtex’s ‘design your own rug’ service.
You can choose between natural fibres and colours, choose a border colour you love, and see what it’ll look like on the floor you have. It’s a breeze to use the platform, and before you know it, you’ll have a custom rug delivered to your door.
Not sure which natural fibre to choose?  Read our post here.

Using natural fibre rugs everywhere

The joy of natural fibre rugs is that they can easily and effectively be used in every room in the house, from cosying up bedrooms, to tying together living and dining rooms. Their neutral base offers the perfect warm addition to any room, allowing you to limitlessly play with other accessories and decor items. They are also an easy and cost effective way to give a room a mini seasonal make-over.

Perfect rug placement

We just love this handy guide from The Front Door.  When you’re shopping for a rug, it can be hard to know exactly what it’ll look like when it’s in place. The guides below have really helped us when it came to finishing rooms with Rebtex’s array of gorgeous natural rugs.
Another handy tip is to use masking tape to outline the rug area, before going shopping. When you use a measuring tape to figure out the rug size, you lose perspective of how the rug will look in your room. Masking tape is a terrific way to picture the area rug proportions.

Moroccan Decor Inspiration

Rebtex Feb_Maart
Modern Moroccan decor is less canopied beds and hanging lanterns, and more muted tones, natural fibres and flashes of vivid colour. It’s easy to introduce this classic look into your home with decorative tiles, pouffes, a nude palette with bold accents, and natural rugs and carpets (sisal, jute, seagrass or coir).
