Springtime is upon us and with it here at Turnbull and Thomas, we have some brand-new collections for you. Mix things up this springtime with a re-vamp of your tired old furniture whether that be just a single new piece or a full overhaul.
Love is in the air today, everywhere we turn there is a bunch of roses and a box of chocolates. As we wave goodbye to the last scraps of hope to keeping our clean eating New Year’s resolutions and begin the new chapter that is scoffing the Valentines chocolate and prosecco. With this overwhelming feeling in the air, our in-house stylist has put together his furniture loves for spring 2018.
What is reclaimed wood? You might have heard this term from time to time different pieces of furniture or flooring but never quite understood what it actually is and why it is so important. Reclaimed wood is old used wood taken from places like barns, docks, barrels etc and then simply re-used, in a nut-shell its historic wood given a new lease of life.
With 2018 peaking around the corner we have sat down with our in house interior designer to hear about their top tips for 2018. New year new furniture right? Its time we ditch the old and bring in the new.
We have all noticed as the size of houses seem to be increasing the size of the rooms are rapidly decreasing. Rooms have never been pokier, with natural light fading and claustrophobia levels rising. Mirrors are one of the best ways to utilise space that you didn’t even know you had whilst also creating a illusion of more room. Take a look at our expert tips on ways mirrors can transform restricted spaces.
New build homes are popping up faster than daisies, everywhere we look there is a new housing community arising from a building site. Each with their brand spanking new showhome that we just can’t resist on snooping round (don’t deny it, we all do it) but as we stroll around these perfectly designed homes with perfectly placed furniture that are so widely out of our price range we look back at our own un-perfect homes and wonder at the possibilities that it may hold but the inspiration is fuzzy, the dream designs are unfinished in our minds with the fear of the price tag being too high. With Turnbull and Thomas those fuzzy, un-determined dreams can become a reality and with these top tips that pristine dream house is just around the corner.
The wonderful time of the year when a bank holiday and pay day has once again graced us with its much-needed presence. A full extra day of hoping that the British weather will hold out for just one more day to then be bitterly disappointed when the rain falls harder than a teenager with their first crush, so what do we do now? We shop! Shopping is the therapy we need to get us through the hard realisation that us Brits won’t be getting the summer weather we have longed for. So, to turn that from upside down the wonderful Turnbull and Thomas style team have carefully selected their top purchases under £100, each with their own character that will make you want to bring them home in no time.
What’s more summery than bright flamboyant colours? (Well sun is, but who are we kidding we live in England!) Vivid colours bring so much life to a room not only in Summer but in the dark mists of Winter too, bringing a promise of a nicer day. In a world where neutral is taking over why not add a splash of colour to your home because life is just simply too short to be sitting on a brown sofa. The Turnbull and Thomas Summer Jols colour palette consists of fuchsia, amber, mustard, petrol blue and teal. This pallet is a bright melody of sweet summer tunes that sooth away the dark days. The mixture of warm and cool gives you the diversity to have the best of both worlds.
The Belgravia collection is this season shabby chic pick. With long warm summer days upon us, why keep your furniture dark and dingy? Why not give your room an airy fresh feeling as we plummet into the heat of summer.
