With a new year, a general reset is in order and this goes for your home too.
Local linen specialist, Volpes has some stunning new looks that at once embrace global trends, but also take inspiration from much-loved South African landscapes and the standout colours that they bring to life. There is an inimitable sense of style behind all of the gorgeous designs from Volpes to suits all taste preferences.
Adopt the Pace of Nature…
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better – Albert Einstein.
As the state of the planet continues to dominate both our minds and our media, natural and nature-inspired looks still remain a top trend for décor worldwide. For bedrooms, Volpes has combined the crisp feeling of white with earthy, rustic, natural tones such as cream, stone and mocca… and enhanced them with pops of jewel colours like blues and greens.
Patterns remain nature and earth inspired; think bold fauna and flora options, plus some geometric interpretations of local botany in designs too. This look is all about showcasing a relaxed, light, airy and rustic feel. The key here is a slightly lived-in appeal that both evokes a fresh new season, but also retains a cosy feel, thanks to the warm colour palette. For curtains, plain whites and creams (from sheers to beautiful blockouts) complete this look.
Pretty Little Things…
Every flowr is a soul blossoming in nature – Gerard de Nerval.
Nothing says pretty like the intoxicating scents and beautiful displays of blooms that we see at this time of year. For this look, all-things-pretty have been enhanced with soft, gentle pastel colours, greys and neutrals. Patterns are naturally full of flowers, plus swirls and damask-like prints, and you can expect to see beautiful embroidered details in the seasons to come.
This look is for those who love classic, timeless bedrooms. Best of all, the design is easily adapted for little girls, tweens and teens in the family. If you prefer just a touch of floral and pattern, dress your bed up in pastel plains in a monotone palette or go crazy with a mix of colours. This look works best with a basic canvas of white and beautiful full flowing curtains.
Modern In The City…
Small town boy, big city dreams – Anon.
Many of us live in contemporary and modern styled homes, where clutter adds to our daily stress. Instead of going entirely minimalist, there is a way to retreat to a calming haven, despite the chaos of complex and city living. For this look, it’s important to start with a pristine crisp white colour palette as a base. From there, add stylish geometrics, modern patterns and stripes; these work equally well in a stylish studio or industrial inspired home.
The beautiful designs from Volpes are inspired by the colours of the city and have blended the perfect harmony of white with navy, stone, cream, and of course, grey and charcoal. As this look exemplifies clean lines, big floor-to-ceiling windows really bring this look alive; alternatively blinds or sheer curtains help to soften the space slightly. To avoid a room looking cold and devoid of personality, Volpes even has a quilt (think ‘a touch of traditional’) to complete this look and add charm and warmth to any modern space.
