Classic roll-arm sofa, check. Proper bedside reading light, check. A new, soothing shade of paint from Farrow & Ball on the walls, check. The Remodelista editors embraced English influences in interior design this week. Here are five ideas to steal:
Bedside Reading Light
Light layering is crucial in a bedroom, writes Janet: ” Dark bedrooms are great for sleeping, but too little light hinders other activities, such as reading, dressing, and getting ready for bed. Since no single fixture can effectively serve all bedroom lighting needs–it would be a blinding light– what’s needed is a combination: controlled task lighting and gentle ambient light.” Read more in this week’s Remodeling 101: Bedside Lighting post.
Welsh Wool Blankets
Woven wool blankets from yesteryear are having a moment, writes Annie. Read more in Welsh Coast: Traditional Wool Blankets in Unexpected Palettes from Melin Tregwynt.
Farrow & Ball Paint
Julie tests Farrow & Ball’s nine new paint colors, “ranging from an exotic pink and a deep red, to a soft off white and down-to-earth blue—the company’s first release since 2016.” See more in 9 New Paint Colors from Farrow & Ball: A Color Field Trip with Zio and Sons.
English Roll-Arm Sofa
A classic English sofa is “the kind you would find in the perfect London townhouse or Georgian rectory, but it works just as well in homes outside of England,” writes Alexa. See more in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.
In “A Rescued Georgian in a ‘Time-Capsule Enclave’ in the Center of London,” the architects set out to re-introduce period-style features while also creating an interior that feels bright and modern, writes Margot.
