Here at jmm PR, we have been scouring the internet for our favourite articles of the week.
This week brings a stunning home makeover and helpful advice on selecting a stylish new headboard.
This real-life home makeover story from YourHomeStyle really caught our eye this week. The homeowner bought the property knowing that it needed a lot of work, renovating it from top to bottom to create a wonderful country-style family home.
We adore the colour scheme that the homeowner chose for the downstairs living area but it’s the furniture and accessories that really bring the space to life! The pink country kitchen is as cute as it is stylish, while the hanging foliage and pretty fairy lights add a unique and personal touch.
If someone told us they wanted to integrate their living space with their pink country kitchen, we’d never think to suggest a gold velvet sofa. But this is exactly what the homeowner has chosen and it really works! The sofas and exposed faux brick work in the living area bring the wow-factor to the space and are sure to leave a lasting impression.
Our favourite thing about the whole makeover is the mixture of mirrors on the wall leading up the stairs. The homeowner has mixed new and vintage mirrors, placing them on a pink wall, creating a stunning feature.
The article also showcases the master bedroom, guest room and bathroom, while giving snippets of the thought process behind the renovation. If you do go on to read the article, let us know in the comments below what colour the kitchen cupboards look to you. Officially, they are pale grey; however our eyes are all seeing different colours in the photos! Between us we think they look white, light blue and lilac, and we’d love to know what you see!
Headboards are arguably one of the most overlooked aspects of a bedroom. With the ability to completely transform a space while adding extra functionality, they provide a simple and often inexpensive solution to making a stunning design statement. This article from Good Homes is the ultimate guide for anyone looking to invest in a brand new headboard, featuring helpful advice on selecting the best style for your space, along with a range of beautiful options that are available to purchase right now.
Many of us invest a lot of time and money in selecting the right bedframe, mattress and beautiful bedding to finish off the look, but how many of us can say that we really pay attention to the style, colour and material of our headboard? According to this article, “a headboard is not only the finishing touch to your bed, it also helps to keep your pillows in place for maximum comfort”, as well as offering a place to rest your head when reading or watching TV in bed, and “preventing unwanted markings on your walls”.
When it comes to selecting the right headboard for your space, there’s an array of different styles and designs available. According to Good Homes, the key things to consider are whether it will suit your needs, if it will match the other furniture in your bedroom, and if the style will still appeal to you several years down the line. While upholstered headboards can enable you to select a fabric and height of your choice, with added comfort when relaxing in bed, metal headboards offer a timeless look and can help to make a real statement.
With that being said, the Good Homes team provides a roundup of six of its favourite headboard picks, including the beautiful Adeline option from Wayfair (pictured above), which would add a unique and rustic element to a bedroom. We also love the Krystal headboard from Bensons for Beds (pictured below), which is perfect for anyone looking to make an elegant and feminine statement. This style would also look great wrapped in fairy lights to add a cosy touch to the room!
