I love house plants and their sense of bringing the outside in, and the way the greens soften a rooms vibe with their sense of lushness. But oh dear keeping them alive is another matter! The only place they survive and thrive is my kitchen where I can keep an eye on them. Anywhere else and I forget to tend to their needs. This is where faux house plants and flowers come into their own, they don’t look at me sadly with their guilt inducing misery. And with the ever increasing choice of faux greenery and flowers we are spoilt for choice, whether you want something small and dainty, or a big show stopper to bring drama to a room, it’s all there.
Here are my 5 tips for choosing faux house plants and flowers, for an ongoing fabulous display that brings joy, and banishes the guilt.
Oh so many beautiful colours to choose from, so many exciting colour combinations. Which to choose, which combination do we desire? Amelia moved house last year and this is her favourite activity – drooling over interior colour palette combinations, so we thought we would bring you a selection of her favourite combo’s just to whet your appetite.
When is a drinks trolley not just a drinks trolley? When it’s so beautifully styled it is a thing of beauty to be admired, and not just a bearer of alcoholic drinks. We love our Gold Round Luxe Drinks Trolley for its simplicity, curvaceous shape and its dual purpose as a decorative shelving unit. But don’t just pile on the glasses and bottles so it looks like your local bar – be discerning and create a visual feast by adorning it with accessories that enhance the vignette. Be selective by only displaying the handsome bottles (I’ve recently bought a gold prosecco bottle, I can’t bear to drink the prosecco as the bottle is so gorgeous), your most striking glasses, and then add some pizzazz with other accessories. Here’s my thoughts on how to style a drinks trolley for a glam addition to your interior décor – not definitive, of course.
What makes a house a home that you want to spend time in and feel a sense of belonging to? It’s not just the colour of the walls and somewhere to sit, it’s all about the personality of your home – a feeling of rightness and a sense of sanctuary that we all need in a busy world. These 5 elements that every home should have encapsulate this feeling and will help you to make your home a haven for you and yours. Which is what we all want, right?
I love, love, love, wallpaper! I now have so many colourful wallpaper samples, as quite often they look fabulous online but the colour is wrong, or it isn’t quite what I was looking for. Sometimes I’m not sure what I want to achieve with a scheme, or even the atmosphere I want to create. But once I start trying out the samples in a room, I start to get a feel of how I want the room to look. It can be a long journey through the swatches, but there are nuggets of gold out there waiting to be found. For those of you on the search for gold, or maybe just enjoying the browse, we have brought you 10 colourful wallpapers you’ll fall in love with.
Sophie Robinson is back on our screens with an exciting new interiors programme called Dream Home Makeovers. The gist of it is Sophie brings her passionate and experienced self to the homes of couples struggling to resolve interior decorating problems and helps them to realise their dream homes. And all done without the need for major building works and keeping within a tight budget. Sophie also discusses design trends and talks us through combining colour and pattern in her own exuberant way. The most exciting bit for us at Audenza is quite a few of our lovely products have been used in Sophie’s dream home makeovers.

Glen’s home epitomises finding your own interior style and truly embracing it! Dark, moody colour palettes are combined with glittering golds, patterned wallpaper, and splashes of neon pink, to create this absolute stunner of a home. But it was no mean feat, as he and his fiancé completed a full renovation on their Midlands house. They took it right back to the bare bones, before completely transforming it. Intrigued to see the end result? Why not take a look…
