With the Christmas season finally behind us we now find ourselves knee deep in the tiresome New Year's tidy up and declutter. January is traditionally the time where we revamp our interiors and streamline our living spaces. One of the key spaces in which to start has to be the kitchen, which will undoubtedly have seen some serious action ever the festive season. Take a step back and consider what you really need and want to keep, kitchens generally contain a myriad of items that never even see the light of day. The key to clean and simple living is to buy only good quality items that you are happy to have on display. Choose products that combine both function and form and that are beautiful and practical. For example, handcrafted wire baskets have a zillion uses, ceramic pots, vases and bowls also offer flexible storage. Wood and Marble choping boards serve a purpose and will last for years and look great in classic and contemporary kitchens. Get rid of anything that gathers dust, if it gets dusty it can't be used often enough to warrant keeping it!! Ecora has an inspiring collection of interiors products including storage, furniture, accessories, lighting and of course our natural wood flooring section is one of the most comprehensive in London. Why not pop into our Belsize Park showroom and take advantage of our January Sale.
This New Year, the Ecora sale features more natural flooring and eye-catching interiors products than ever before. With numerous discounts on many of our wood flooring products you can save up to 15% on solid and engineered oak floors. Pop into our showroom to see examples of our flooring products and discover the impressive winter savings available on our oak flooring, chevrons, block flooring and parquet. At Ecora we offer a personal bespoke service and our range of finishes include oiled, distressed, fumed and brushed wood floors, giving our customers a wide choice of styles and finishes to suit all budgets.
We love the way that so many of these innovative designs feature natural wood floors, from parquet to reclaimed timber, patterned block designs to crazy carvings, wood really does offer ultimate flexibility when it comes to creating a timeless backdrop to any interior design scheme.
Cabbages and Roses above are one of the leaders in floral design
2016 also sees the revival of floral inspired interiors, however, designs take on a more lavish, opulent feel with rich gorgeous blooms featuring on cushion covers, bed linen, tea towels and tablecloths. Look out for glamourous accessories and prints in deep garden greens with glorious rose-tinted prints. The country chic look takes on a much for sophisticated grown-up feel and this can be seen throughout accessories, fabrics and furnishings.
Flashes of brightly coloured accessories and printed fabrics make a statement alongside retro inspired tones such as mustard yellow, duck egg blue and battleship grey. Geometric designs provide splashes of rich colour and have a timeless feel and look at home in both classic and contemporary settings. Stripes also make a comeback for cushions, blankets and throws, featuring contrasting colour palettes. Combine vintage one-off furniture designs with clean minimal pieces to give living spaces an eclectic lived in feel.
