Modernise The Chesterfield

Have you got some vintage pieces, a Chesterfield lounge, or antique cabinet. Is it looking a bit drab in its surroundings? Revamp the look, here’s some styling ideas. Choose some strong bright colours, I have used jade green and bright yellow. Think quirky with homewares in these colours, choose artwork that is modern, yet hints at a bygone era, like the books made into a clock , the deer head on the pillow and the bright yellow ¬†of the candle holders. The slight change from the expected is what adds interest. Go for a bold rug if you’re not sure about colour try cream and black in a strong geometric print. Lastly find some different indoor plants of varying sizes and foliage and place around room, this will stop the overall look feeling to structured and contrived. Now pour yourself a drink and enjoy.

There is an endless supply of reading material, so if your alone no need to re-read the paper or an old issue of New Idea. Grab a book you might find the great read you have been looking for. The Press Espresso & Second-hand Books.

Churchkey Espresso

Funky, cool, and hip come to mind when I first saw this new cafe. The walls are covered in Pianola rolls and the light bulbs are spiralled and exposed. The coffee is great, does anything else matter?
