5 Ways To Create The Perfect Conservatory

With more and more of us yearning for a little bit of extra space within our homes, conservatories and orangeries have become popular choices in both small terraced and grand detached homes. Conservatories provide you with an extra room to expand your living space and are a great way of adding more space and light into your home interior.

Their wall to ceiling glass finish will create a bright and uplifting ambiance and allows you to bring a sense of the outdoors – indoors on even the coldest of winter days. With these 5 simple and easy techniques, you can create a chic and sophisticated conservatory area that will be the perfect place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous garden scenery.

 

Uplifting colour schemes.

When choosing a colour scheme for your conservatory area it is important to choose colours that will compliment the light and airy design and will provide a balance of the outdoor space and natural colours. Opt for soft and subtle pastel tones for a feminine and delicate feel and partner them with rich coffee and chocolate tones for a warm and cosy feel. Alternatively why not inject some zest and colour to your plain white conservatory with some fabulous lime green and mint tones that reflects the scenery of your your garden landscape. For a more chic and contemporary feel; monochrome is a simple yet eye-catching colour combination that will add a splash of boutique style chic to your conservatory area.

 

Seating

If you wish to use your conservatory as an extension of your living room area or as a cosy snug away from the hustle and bustle of the house then you need to ensure that your seating options provide a stylish and functional partnership. Traditional wicker furniture is still extremely popular in conservatory settings or you can opt for a more modern take on this classic look by using some sumptuous rattan designs with matching coffee tables and footstools. Feeling lavish? Why not treat yourself to a fabulous day bed where you can curl up with your favourite book and take in the beauty of the surrounding outdoor scenery.

 

Dining Sets

Larger families or those who love to throw a good dinner party may wish to use their conservatory as an alternative to a traditional dining room area. The light space and beautiful exterior views make them the perfect choice for parties and romantic meals. To make the most of your space choose a table that suits the shape of your conservatory design. A rectangular table will suit longer orangery style conservatories while a small round bistro style table will compliment more circular and angular room designs. Opt for light oak or white painted items for a fresh and illuminating centrepiece or for a more dramatic and contemporary feel then choose a chic black painted dining set that will create a bold focal point in the centre of the conservatory area.

 

Blinds

While conservatories are there in order to enjoy the outside space there is nothing worse than having the sun blaring in your eyes as you try to read your morning newspaper. A stylish selection of conservatory blinds will create a function shade within your room and are also a great way of adding colour and pattern to your interior space. Venetian blinds are a simple and sleek style that can be adjusted to allow the perfect amount of light to enter the room and do not encroach upon the open nature of the conservatory walls. Roller blinds will create fabulous blocks of colour and pattern that can be coordinated with your upholstery, cushions, rugs and accessories to create a complimentary interior decor and style.

 

Accessories

Accessorising your conservatory area should be a celebration of the outdoors natural beauty. A selection of house plants will compliment the view of the garden area and will create a botanical feel that is calm and tranquil. Lanterns and candles will provide a soft and subtle lighting feature and look wonderful placed along the internal windowsills and tables for a scattering of glowing illumination.

Colour Trend – Forest Green

Green is often a colour choice that is overlooked in modern interior design. While lime green remains a popular choice in contemporary home interiors, darker and richer green hues have remained within the walls of period properties and vintage interior settings.

Forest Green tones are making a huge comeback this Autumn. With its opulent and luxurious finish this colour trend can be partnered with both dark and light furnishings to give a regal and refined finish to any room of the home.

Forest green can be partnered with a multitude of colours that provide a sense of natural beauty and sophisticated elegance. Earthen tones such as Hessian, lavender and pewter look wonderful alongside rich dark green tones while antique white, silver and black provide a regency style colour scheme that works particularly well in dining room and living room areas. Due to its deep and dark finish try and keep your forest green colour choice to a single wall or alcove area to maintain a light and airy feel.

Wallpaper is an ideal way of introducing this colour to your interior space as a pattern or print will provide a complimentary variation in colour that will prevent your home feeling dark or enclosed. Baroque and Rococo designs work extremely well in providing an exquisite and expensive finish that is reminiscent of stately homes and palatial interiors. For a more contemporary feel then choose a wallpaper with a metallic print and finish that will create a reflective and illuminating ambiance that is ideal for smaller or more compact home interiors. Silver, gold and bronze inlays will compliment the dark forest tones and will add a glamorous feel to any feature wall.

Upholstery is key in creating a soft and cosy feel in your interior space. Forest green is a versatile colour choice for your interior upholstery that works well in a range of fabric choices. Traditional materials such as velvet and silk will provide an authentic period feel within your home and can be partnered with complimentary colours and patterns for varied texture and visual detail. Yellow, cream, white and silver are perfect partners to your forest green colour choice and can be showcased in your cushions, rugs, bedding and curtains for a rich and luxurious finish.

Using such a strong colour on your walls or upholstery can often be a little daunting, however this does not mean that any dark, or bold colour options should be avoided. Accessories or smaller interior items are a great way of adding colour in strategic or zoned areas that will not overpower the existing interior decor and design. Bar stools, an occasional chair or a carefully positioned lamp or ornament will add a splash of colour to your chosen room and can compliment or contrast your walls and upholstery, depending on your choice of palette. Alternatively why not add accessories of varying green tones from light mint to the darkest fern green for a varied yet complimentary interior finish.

When it comes to choosing furniture to compliment your forest green interior, there are numerous avenues you can explore to find the right feel and finish for your chosen space. If you wish to create a traditional period feel then opt for dark mahogany or walnut finishes that will provide a deep and rich lustre that is cosy and luxurious. For a more natural feel then select items of light or golden oak that will give an alpine forest-like finish. If your home requires a brighter and more uplifting ambiance then why not introduce a selection of cream or white painted furniture that will give a fresh and feminine feel against the deep tones of your chosen decor.

Furniture

When it comes to bedroom furniture both home and away, each item should provide a perfect balance of eye-catching style and functional practicality.
