Redesigning a Space Using Color! 828 607 Kurlancheek Home Furnishings

Some of our wonderful followers may not be aware but one of the services we offer here at Kurlancheek’s is an interior design service.
We’re actually not sales people at all! We’re designers with a passion for what we do and an extensive knowledge of trends, colors, textures and all things interior design!

One of the most important skills you can have as an interior designer is knowing how to tie a space together, and the best way to do this is with color!

Take the gorgeous Caracole dining table below, it truly is a thing of beauty, we can’t dispute that! But with a little magic and a little know-how we were able to totally re-invent it.

Check out the before and after pictures, and then we’ll tell you how we did it!

The How’s and Why’s

Step One:

Assess your surroundings!

Take a look at the area you’re updating and think about what colors you can see. Are your curtains blue? Do you have a bright purple accent chair that you love?

Take note of the colors in the room that you are going to be keeping!

For us, we picked out the pops of teal as we looked around the showroom and decided to bring that to the dining table in order to make the entire store flow.

Step Two:

What Does The Space Need?

Are you replacing the couch? Maybe you just need some new accessories like some throw pillows and a rug?

Decide what you need to bring to the space!

For our dining area we knew we needed to add more chairs. We also brought in a new rug, a painting, and table accessories.

Step Three:

Little by Little!

Start by bringing in one piece at a time.
Whether it be a throw cushion, a painting, a coffee table. Place one item and take several steps back. Once you are happy, move onto the next piece!

Observing the space from further back means you can take in more of the surroundings to see if the new addition flows!

Step Four:

Finishing Touches!

Once you’re happy with the placement of everything, add your finishing touches!
Throw a blanket over the arm of your couch. Hang that mirror. Place a vase of flowers on the console. Light a candle.

All these little details will MAKE the space!

And finally, sit back and enjoy your new room!

Kurlancheek’s 2020 Trends

Kurlancheek’s 2020 Trends 1300 731 Kurlancheek Home Furnishings

The 2020 color chosen by Dulux is Tranquil Dawn. Taking inspiration from the sea and colors of the morning sky, this versatile color promises to change according to the tones it’s used with. A serene green designed to awaken interiors for 2020!

It is the ideal pastel to pair with darker tones such as black and deep blues and will beautifully complement neutral pinks and lilacs, all of which are key colors in next years interior trends.

With that said, neutrals and naturals are still very much in the mix with the shift moving from cool towards warm. Designers are recommending earthy browns and oranges. Earth tones will become the new neutral. Copper, orange, blush and soft yellows will bring an organic, bohemian feel in the upcoming year.

Blue was the “it” color of 2019 and nothing much is going to change about that other than it will move away from pastels and more towards darker blues. Moodier. Less powdery.

With earth tones being the new neutral in 2020, it seems a natural gravitation towards natural materials such as marble, stone, cork, metals, velvets. Multi textural and organic.

A new year brings change and progression into different style trends but gold is right there in 2020 as a welcomed returned classic. Gold takes over stainless, chrome and nickel and will be heavily featured in the modern home. We will see less rustic farmhouse and more luxury and glamour. Sparkling touches, metals, marbles etc.

Another touch on the modern style is geometric designs. From wallpaper to lighting, furniture to accents. The key is clean thin lines and a contemporary feel.

A brand new idea for the new year is the concept of bringing homes and offices together as one. No more separate office away from the family. Multi functional spaces and less seclusion will start to take shape. Incorporating desks and office spaces into living/family rooms.
