I must admit, when I read that Pantone had announced Living Coral as it’s colour of the year for 2019, I had a bit of a groan to myself; but let’s back up a bit.

Each year, around December, Pantone announces it’s ‘Colour of the Year’ for the following year, a prediction of one colour that will influence designers of all walks of life: interiors, fashion, art, beauty, even packaging. You name it, you will start to notice that particular colour everywhere. For 2018 the colour was Ultra Violet, and you may recall how popular a colour purple was last year.

Pantone

But why the grumbling? I could see the colour applied to fashion, beauty, art, graphic design. Interiors however, surely it would look childish or kitchy? (and this is coming from someone who loves pink in all it’s forms!)
I couldn’t see how I could use it in a modern or sophisticated way – until I started researching.

This bathroom was the first image I found and I was in love, it’s somehow retro and futuristic simultaneously, just a gorgeous combination.

Look at the warmth and joy this shade gives a room, it would be nearly impossible to be unhappy in this bathroom.

Photography by Jason Frank Rothenberg for Domino

Dulux ‘Coral Oasis’ is a stunning coral colour for an accent wall – or even a whole room for the brave!

Dulux ‘Coral Oasis’

This colour is particularly impactful when teamed with intense blues, such as Prussian Blue or Ultramarine. Think of the colour wheel when choosing complimentary colours: If your coral leans more pink, you’ll want a blue with a hint of green and if your coral is more on the orange side, you’ll want more of an Ultramarine (with a hint of violet).

Couches in this shade are also beautiful for a pop of vibrant colour to add a focal point to the room, but still consider how this will effect surrounding colours. A coral couch would be best in a room painted in a cool white, as to maintain that complimentary relationship.

Couch is ‘Gent’ by Zepel Fabrics

Also remember, if you choose a muted coral, surrounding pieces will look best with similar softness (a harmony of saturation).

Why not consider upholstering your couch or chairs in a sumptuous coral velvet such as the Tiffany from Trabeth Textiles in either 945 Pink Lily or 948 Peony (6th and 7th from top right), these would even make beautiful cushions!

Or why not update some dated furniture with a coat of paint? This is an easy DIY that can transform your decor.

There is an abundance of textiles in this colour family, these are great made into curtains, cushions or wall hangings to brighten your space.

Justina Blakeney Hamsa Quilt

If you don’t want to make a huge commitment to the colour, but still want to dip your toe in the trend, you can easily add smaller decor items that can be easily changed out as trends progress.

For those that are super committed, why not even apply this colour in your sheers for a bold statement

If you’d like to use any of these fabrics or colours in your home, please come and have a chat, we would be happy to discuss options with you!

The Hamptons, on the eastern end of Long Island, NY, have a such a reputation that an entire style of decor has been born from this iconic area. The Hamptons are predominantly a coastal holiday retreat for the wealthy and the decor very much matches this vibe. When doing Hamptons decor, you want to think ‘old money on vacation’, looking understatedly expensive and luxurious, yet casual and airy. Hamptons decor is never gaudy or over the top.

Thankfully, this look does not need to be expensive and, because of it’s beachy aesthetic, lends itself to Australian homes seamlessly.

The Hamptons style is that based around vacationing, so spaces must be great for relaxing and entertaining. Dining and living areas should be warm and inviting.

Hamptons styling is all about the details, so we’ll need to break things down into sections to fully explain the look.
We’ll start with the big one: Colour.

Colour palette is extremely important for the Hamptons style, get this wrong and it will completely throw off the entire aesthetic. The most important colour in your arsenal will be white, white and more white (with touches of contrast… then add some more white). But seriously, we’re going for light, airy and luminescent, so you’ll want to pick some various harmonious shades of white (I’m personally partial to ones with warm or mauve/greige undertones to keep it more inviting and less clinical) and some accompanying light greys for the bulk of your palette. For your contrasting colours you’ll want to pick soft/desaturated ocean/beach colours such as navy, duck egg blue, mint, seafoam and sandy/linen colours. Natural timber colours, bronze, chrome and matte black are also great when used in moderation.

Next is texture. You’ll want to keep your finishes as matte as possible on the bulk of your surfaces (such as walls, soft furnishings and furniture), shiny reads as cheap and is not the look we are going for. A small amount of gloss is acceptable in decorative items, but should be used as a contrast rather than the main finish. Gloss white is also good for the kitchen tiles and sink (which should be farm-style, by the way). Cabinetry is shaker style, often in a satin finish with stone counter tops and semi industrial tap fixtures.

Shairoom

Large, beautiful mirrors are also a must and help with the grand, open plan style we’re aiming for.

Soft furnishings should be natural and effortless, so linen and other natural fibres are a great choice. Curtains can either be solid with sheers behind, or sheer with linings behind. Additional soft furnishings should be natural in texture and either solid or patterns such as soft florals, ticking, geometric and stripes in the same soft colours. Realistic faux fur can also be used sparingly in cushions and throws. Upholstered (particularly tufted) bedheads and an abundance of cushions are a must in the Hamptons style bedroom.

Another popular choice for curtains is linen-look drapery fabric (that will also cut the cost of your project down considerably), here are a few great examples of textured fabrics that would suit this look well .

While we’re discussing window treatments, white plantation shutters can also be a gorgeous addition to Hamptons-style homes as they give a classic yet casual feel.

Some fabric companies such as Zepel and Charles Parsons Interiors specifically cater to this style, these fabrics would make some gorgeous cushions and curtains!

As light is so important to this look, lighting fixtures should be abundant and slightly industrial, but sophisticated. Framed glass pendants, particularly those with Edison blubs, are a popular choice.

Beacon Lighting

So in a nutshell, Hamptons style is about creating a bright, clean, casual look, with a mix of classic and modern elements to create a timeless look.

With the rise of the internet, we have also seen a surge in entrepreneurial spirit amongst the general populace. The average person can now easily run a small business from home without the need for a separate premises. It is usually desirable to have a separate area to work in, but many people do not have the space to have an entire room devoted to their startup. Many students, living both in and out of their parents’ home, are in the same situation; they need a work area but do not have the space to devote a room to it. You may also need a spare room for another purpose, or need to add some privacy to a certain area of your home; but adding walls is far too expensive, permanent and honestly, who needs the hassle?

What to do in this situation? One answer is to section off a specific area with curtains to create a separate space for your needs. It can be just the corner of a room, or as large as you need it to be!

Below is a different but great example of utilising curtains to maximise your space. If you look closely, you can see the track at the top of the curtains runs all the way across the top of the adjacent wall so that the large curtain can be drawn all the way across the wardrobe and window.

Have a studio apartment, but would prefer some privacy? Why not look at adding a curtain around your bed for a cosy, relaxing space.

Such partitions can be great for office buildings too, to create private sections for meetings that can be opened to resize the space or return it to an open plan room.

Sections separated by curtains do not need to be against a wall either, when affixed to the ceiling the choice is up to you!

When you talk about ‘tropical decor’ it probably sparks memories of kitschy (or even downright tacky!) interiors that now are just laughable, but fear not! Tropical decor is back in a big way – and it’s all grown up

Emerald & moody turquoise tones, foliage and other natural elements combined with gold or brass details, velvets and modern, luxe styling make up this exciting new take on ‘tropical’.

Natural components give this look an overall calming effect, while the ‘luxe’ details give it a touch of class and sophistication.

Or why not a framed print to liven up a tired space?

A great way to get this look without the maintenance of living plants, are faux plants that really only require an occasional dusting to look their best. Faux plants are also inexpensive and widely available, the plant above is only $20 from Target and easy to incorporate into your styling.

Warwick ‘Copacabana’ Collection

Another great way is with tropical print fabrics and wallpapers. Cushions, curtains and bedspreads are easily splashed with colour if you wish to keep the more permanent components of your home on the neutral side.

Fabric from Spotlight

As you can see, there are a variety of ways to bring nature indoors and create your own tropical paradise at home (minus the creepy crawlies!).

Matte finishes in general have made a huge comeback lately, but if you want to be ultra chic, then black (and dark charcoal) is the way to go. It may seem intense, but black home decor can give a beautiful sleek and elegant touch to otherwise everyday decor. With it’s current popularity, there is a vast array of decor available in the trendy new finish.

Matte black is not only great with an achromatic palette, but it’s also great with colour and striking when coupled with bold colours as below.

Morning all! How are you all doing? We had a jam packed diy day yesterday and finally got the bathroom finished!🎉 It all got put on hold as the plan was to get the kitchen finished before Oisín started school but we gave grandad the weekend off so he could celebrate his 45th wedding anniversary😆 There was some last bits of grouting, siliconing & painting to do(I think we’ve painted this room about 5 times now!) but I did it all with my fair hands and it meant the kids had their first bath in here last night, it’s all a bit surreal to be using it!! Still got lots of bits to get and put stuff on the walls but the floor is no longer covered in that protective stuff and we are beyond chuffed with it. This bathroom was a massive job as we were putting it into the small bedroom so we had to install a pump. Tom’s dad did so much in here it’s incredible, tiling the walls alone was a mission as the walls are really wonky! Hope you all have a super Sunday, we’re off to my son’s besties birthday and then I’m going to visit a very dear friend of mine in hospital. . . #bathroominspo #marbletiles #blacktaps #inchyrablue #mydiymydecor #myperiodhomestyle #myvintageabode #howivintage #myinteriorstyletoday #myhometrend #rockininteriors #suyhome #spotlightonmyhome #showmehowyoushine #interiorboom #myseasonalrevamp #bohoismyjam #dailydecordetail #mygorgeousgaff #mycreativeinterior #mystylednest #brightboldhome #styleithappy #victorianterrace #colourmysummer #secretstylingclub #myhouseandhome #sahstylists #walltowallstyle #howimonochrome

The range of hardware and furnishings now available in this finish are extensive; everything from drapery and linens to tapware, baths and sinks can be purchased or custom made. Another great pairing with matte black is to add a gloss black for a contrast of finish rather than colour.

Want to dip your toes in this trend? Try some black linens, drapery or accessories to add some drama to the room, this way you can easily change decor at a later stage.

Here black has been used to create contrast between the walls and the doors/window frames; this creates a crisp, clean look.

But how does this apply to window treatments? I’m glad you asked!
Black translates beautifully to curtains, either as dramatic solids or ethereal sheers. Sheers can also be softened or tinted by adding a different colour lining behind that can be slightly seen through the sheer. Below are some beautiful examples of black sheers from our suppliers.

This has to be one of my personal favourite trends, black is always timeless and creates a beautiful drama in any room.

Interior design inspiration can come from many places, and it definitely helps to have some references (or even a mood board) when designing a space to make the look cohesive. But what if you can’t describe the look you’re after? When searching for images online it can be almost impossible if you don’t know what that certain aesthetic is called. That’s where this blog series comes in, each blog will discuss a different design trend and ways to apply it to your home; whether you go all out or add small elements as a nod to your inspiration.

Our first design inspiration is ‘Wabi Sabi’, a trend with Japanese origins that, when loosely translated, means “a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay” Collins Dictionary. When translated to design, this means embracing beautiful yet flawed pieces, natural materials and subdued, moody colours. Think minimalism with a bit of an imperfect edge.

The photo below is a great example of tasteful use of wabi sabi concepts – imperfect and natural looking, but simultaneously clean lines and not overly fussy.

Forest House by Fearon Hay – The Local Project

Wabi sabi also has the great appeal of being very environmentally conscious for a design trend, it focuses on repairing broken items rather than purchasing something new and mass-produced. Quality pieces are cherished and cared for; rather than focusing on consumption of the new.

But how do you apply this to your own home? This could be simply done by adding some natural textures and some imperfect elements, especially to easily changeable items such as cushions or curtains. Think textured fabrics with little (if any) sheen and a natural look.

L to R: Charles Parsons ‘Verdure’, Rowe ‘Arcadia’, Warwick ‘Kasos’

What do you think of the ‘Wabi Sabi’ concept? How would you implement this in your home? We’d love to hear your ideas!

Choose the right window treatments can be a very daunting task and you need to get it right the first time. I recently had a client who had shopped around and was so confused and overwelmed by the choices she had to make. I broke it down into some simple manageable steps so eliminate the stress.

By asking these specific questions I was able to get a clearer idea of the clients needs. 

Why do you need curtains?

  • Is it for privacy?
  • Daytime or night time?
  • Does the room get too hot or too cold?
  • Is the room noisy and needing help with acoustics?
  • Do you live in a noisy neighbourhood?
  • Does the room need to be darkened?
  • It is just for appearance?

The customer was concerned about privacy both day and night as well as the temperature and light.

What is the purpose of the room?

  • What room is it? Bedroom, Lounge, Office etc
  • Is it formal or casual area?
  • Who uses it?

I then found out that it was the bedroom and her husband was a shift worker and need the room darkened to sleep during the day it also faces west so it gets very hot in the afternoon.

What is in the room that can influence the choice?

  • What style of furniture?
  • Any dominant features?
  • What colour are the walls?
  • Is there a feature wall or exposed brick?
  • What is the floor covering?
  • Are there any dominant features in the room?

The furniture was modern and over the bed is a large abstract print with splashes of oranges and purple. The walls were all white with a soft grey carpet. There was also a large modern light. So again it was narrowing the suitable choices.

What is the budget?

This really helps as there is a massive price range available. I have had customers in the past that have not wanted to give this information. We have gone through the selection process and they have found the perfect fabric and fallen in love with it and then discovered it is not in their price point. It becomes a delemma that nothing else is a good as what they love. Other options in their price range would still look great and they would have been extremely happy but they keep going back and comparing everything to something that is out of their reach. 

Selections

At this point I was able to guide the customer to a selection of 5 suitable fabrics in a neutral colour with a texture a a bit of sheen in her price point. We addressed the issue of light by using a good quality blockout lining and a pelmate in the tracking system to block the light and also the heat. To add a bit of luxury I suggested a bed runner and cushions to tie the artwork.

The finished product.

The customer ordered the curtains and was extremely happy and so was her husband he can now sleep comfortably during the day.

They later ordered the finishing touches I suggested to give the room the complete look.

The whole process was made easy by asking good questions. Understanding what their actual needs are is so important. It’s not a one size fits all so a personal approach is needed for every job.

Why use Julan Curtains and Blinds?

  • All our consultants are trained in the steps outlined above and the latest trends.
  • We are 100% South Australian owned and operated.
  • All the blinds and tracks are from South Austalian suppliers. 
  • Curtains and accessories are all manufactured in our workroom that is located behind the showroom. This gives us control over the quality and delivery time.
  • Julan are Members of the Window Coverings Association of Australia. As Members we abide by strict guidelines for quality of manufacturing and service.
  • We have a large range of fabrics but if we don’t have quite what you need we are happy to source it from our many suppliers.
  • Our complete in home service can save you time and you get to see the fabrics in your home.

Common mistakes

Some people buy what they want before getting good quality advise. A business that sells both curtains and blinds has a better practical understanding of both products and the best application for them. 

Colours change in different lights so it is important to look at the colour several times during the day as well as at night.

Advice

Curtains and blinds are an investment so get the best advice from an experience consultant that keeps up with the latest products and trends.

When investing in quality home furnishings, you want to protect that investment by maintaining them properly. Here is a short guide to help you easily maintain your curtains and extend their life.

Washing Sheer Curtains

This category of instructions applies to curtains that have been made without any blockout lining. If you are at all unsure about whether to machine wash your curtains, a good practice when washing any item is to check the care label. While spot cleaning is effective for small marks (see below), we do recommend washing your sheers around once a year.

It is ideal to wash your sheers in a laundry bag with the hooks removed to prevent any rips or pulls. We do make large laundry bags for washing sheers, these are free when you purchase our sheers (or come in and mention this post).

Blockout or Blockout-Lined Curtains

Blockout curtains are typically distinguished by their backing, if you check the back of the curtain and is has a rubbery or suede feel to the back, then it is likely a blockout fabric and should not be machine washed.

Machine washing the wrong fabric can:

  • Remove the dressing in fabric
  • Deteriorate the backing on coated fabrics
  • May shrink the fabric
  • May stretch the fabric
  • May tear if fabric is weak

In our workshop, we exclusively use blockout fabrics that can be dry cleaned; unfortunately not all fabrics are created equal. We recommend checking that your linings can be dry cleaned by checking any attached care labels and conducting a patch test in a small, inconspicuous area.

How to Spot Clean:

  • Read care label
  • Test in inconspicuous spot using the following (depending on the type of stain & type of fabric)
    • Magic Eraser (try dry first, then dampened)
    • Wonder Soap & Water (using a cloth or toothbrush to gently rub mark away)
    • Dry Cleaning Fluid (White Spirits, Methylated Spirits)
    • Baby Powder may be of use to reduce water marks

Why We Don’t Recommend Washing or Dry Cleaning
