Whimsical Design from Feliz We‘re currently crazy for the laid-back, playful patterns offered by Feliz. This Australia-based brand uses organic and sustainably produced fabrics, as well as water-based inks. Below we see a vignette featuring Cha Cha Cha Pink & Gold bedding. Dusty pink and gold make a big impact without hitting you over the head. We’re loving the mix of modern and Memphis-Milano:
Thread Lightly is the brand’s embroidered bedding featuring white or grey cotton and a range of vibrant rectangles. In true Feliz form, the design is eye-catching and commanding while still maintaining a fresh, clean look. Add the fact that organic, non-toxic materials are used to create an array of gorgeous products, and it’s no wonder Feliz is making a splash this spring!
SOL (short for “sustained organic living”) offers luxury sheets and pillow cases crafted from Fair Trade Certified fine long-staple organic cotton. Color offerings are kept simple in shades of white, ivory and blue. Only eco-friendly, low-impact, water-based dyes are used, and products are recyclable and biodegradable. Choose from plain, pleated and hemmed styles.
Decor with Personality Reclaimed barn wood need not always be relegated to the walls alone, and you can give it a more practical and prominent role in the dining room by using it to craft a custom dining table or chairs. These additions obviously seem more at home in rustic and farmhouse-style dining spaces, but they can also add an interesting twist to your modern dining room. If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
Boll & Branch also offers organic bedding in neutral tones. Choose from sheet sets, duvet covers, pillowcases, pillow shams, bed skirts and more. The brand also sells bedding for babies (including patterned styles), so stock up on crib sheets and blankets! Products are 100%-certified organic, created with eco-friendly, non-toxic dyes and made in Certified Fair Trade factories in India. While most items are available in solid hues, there is a Banded option that resembles the chic style of hotel bedding:
Above and below we see the Riviera Table Runner, along with Crisp Dinnerware in blue-green, seafoam and chartreuse. Don’t be afraid to combine a range of green tones, which will add depth (and even a sense of tropical decadence).
The first few months of 2017 have seen wood emerge as the big winner when it comes to home design and decorating. Inclination of homeowners and designers towards materials that are far more natural and an ambiance that is relaxing and warm has meant that wood has topped the trends chart in the past few months. From fabulous wooden siding, to wooden ceilings and slats that combine privacy with insulation, wood is quickly becoming the go to material in the contemporary interior. So, why not jump in on this natural bandwagon by bringing wood into your dining room?
