Moving into a new home such as those at Honeydew Country Estate, comes with many advantages. If you are a first homeowner, the chances are that furniture and décor will all be bought specifically for your new beautiful home. We share some tips to ensure your house becomes your haven.

Certain pieces will need some investing. For example a couch or dining room table should last for years. Try and choose a timeless design for your couch, so that if and when you do feel like changing, it is easily done by either a choice of new scatter cushions or re-upholstering the couch. Leather is usually a good, but expensive choice. The same goes for the dining room table. Choose a classic style and preferably, a natural wood colour. Chairs could be dictated by current fashion trends.

For winter 2018, emerald greens, deep navy and bold burgundy in lush shades of velvet will all take centre stage. These colours work well with metallics, a trend that will stick around for some time to come. Unrefined timbers with imperfections and rattan chairs with linen cushions contribute to texture a room.

Kitchens are also coloured in more – even if the basic kitchen is still white or wood, adding charcoals, French navy or even black by means of kitchen accessories or artwork, allows for endless trendy options.

Tribal accessories are also another big trend. Thick, loosely woven rugs, cushions and bedspreads or a throw over your couch are all in shades of whites, blacks and natural creams. Artwork or pots making use of rope, woven yarns, shell and bone add interest. Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese design aesthetic and is about the beauty of “imperfection”. Crockery is not perfect porcelain as each element looks handmade resulting in a perfectly-imperfect set of tableware.

Painting a wall is also an inexpensive way to change a room and being on trend. The Dulux 2018 colour of the year is Pictured Rocks. This soft, lush pink is the embodiment of peace and calm. The last two most certainly elements you will find on the Honeydew Country Estate.
