Brighten up for Spring with Country Road

By on 09-11-2012 in Interior Design, Obsessed With, Shop There

So we’re back, well sort of.  Another month or so and we should return to a couple of posts a week, it’s just been a little hectic around here! I promised an update on our BoConcept project, I’m still not there, but you can read some more of the story and the development of the showroom on Beyond Furniture’s blog in the mean time, pop in and visit the brand spanking new Crows Nest showroom for yourself, it looks amazing!  For today I thought I would take a look at Country Road’s new home collection, firstly, because I love it, and secondly, as we discovered when working on a recent display home styling job, it work’s amazingly well with Beyond’s furniture range!

The current season ware’s all feature bright pops of colour on white or taupe backgrounds making the colour so easy to work into your everyday decor and such an ideal way to freshen up for Spring!  It works particulalry well with white furniture, which can sometimes be quite hard to add colour to, as it can appear too stark, these accessories all introduce colour but tone it down with chunky texture or simple colour combinations.  The graphic patterns are very ‘now’ and the whole collection works wonderfully well together, allowing you to mix and match your favourite pieces to your hearts content.

With that said – it’s perfect for a little Spring time home pick me up! And pieces from the collection also make very ideal Christmas gifts! Thank-you Country Road!

To start with, here’s how we used some Country Road linen and feature cushion in a beachside bedroom.  The grey and white combo helped add some dimension to the room and make it a little more inviting then just crisp white, yet it is still very modern and cool.  The yellow accent cushion is slightly larger then average and features a chunky night with some white weaved through, a perfect way to add colour without it being too intense, and also some texture & warmth.

To freshen up your living room for spring, the graphics and pop of orange on these cushions are perfect.  The knitted texture works beautifully on leather.

Also look for some summery candle holders and scented candles, so it feels and smells like Summer!
