Inspired by Laura Ashley - Guest blog
1st October 2018
Thinking of giving your home a new look but don’t know where to start? The Laura Ashley design service is a fantastic (and affordable) way to inspire you. Their creative designers can give you valuable advice on an existing scheme in your home you might want to freshen up or if you‘re doing a complete renovation/revamp they can advise you all the way through your project.
We asked Kay Cullen, one of the designers at Laura Ashley, to create some inspired schemes from their new range which work seamlessly with the Laura Ashley Carpet Collection:
Florals never really go out of style, and we continue to be inspired by them at Laura Ashley. This season they’re back with a twist. From delicate romantic prints to the contemporary stylised block print leaf, the designs all come in lovely tones to cheer us up this Autumn.
The Malmaison Linen carpet is a favourite of ours from the collection and it’s perfect to use when creating a traditional yet glamourous interior. It complements most florals and in this scheme we have chosen to team it with pale gold paint for an opulent feel and a feature wallpaper in Lilium grey green for a smart, elegant look. The scheme is kept fresh with a contrast of grey green and pretty lighting.
For a more contemporary look we have used the ever popular tones of grey and given a bright injection of contrast in raspberry/pink. The Bell Twist carpet in Steel allows the bolder elements of this scheme to stand out (such as the quirky toucan lamp) while adding a bit of luxury feel underfoot. Laura Ashley have a wide range of upholstered furniture and accessories that help to complete the look.
Whatever your style, the Laura Ashley Design Service is perfect for interpreting ideas and vision into reality to create a beautiful interior. Our experienced designers cover all regions of the UK, Ireland and Europe and will work with you to make the process as easy as possible. They bring along all wallpaper, fabric and carpet samples so you can start creating your scheme together!
