Bringing the Feel Good factor into your home with our Seasonal Prize draw your chance to win £500 of designer furnishings

There was a huge sence of relief and a great feel good factor in the offiice today as we finally managed to get our database emailed off to the printers. YIPEE!! At last our long awaited mail shot is ready to mail out to over 4000 clients from both Honeysuckle & Fine Fabrics.  We're so excited about the seaonal free prize draw  - you saw the details of it here first...

Bring the Feel Good Factor back into your home.
Nothing makes us happier than spending time at home and when your home looks good, you feel good too. Whether you’re looking forward to snuggling up during the dark evenings to enjoy this season’s must-see films or curling up on a sofa to read the latest best-selling novels, make sure your home is where your heart is at.

It is obviously unrealistic to redecorate every season, but you can add warmth by adding accessories in spicy saffron, chilli reds and cinnamon shades. Why not add a few extra layers to your existing furnishings to warm them up a little.  Just as we pile on pullovers to keep ourselves warm, a few extra layers work wonders in creating a warm feel indoors too.  Add a woollen throw or a travel rug to an armchair or sofa and cushions of all shapes and sizes to add a feeling of cosiness.

Carpet is unbeatable for warmth and comfort in the winter.  If you currently have bare floorboards or a stone floor, then this is the time to invest in a rug to raise temperatures instantly.

Eliminating draught is the first step to a warm comfortable home and windows and doors are the chief culprits when it comes to letting in cold air.  If your budget won’t run to new double glazing make sure you have linings and interlinings in your curtains.  If you have radiators under the window, then team your existing curtains with a thick Roman blind to cut out draughts.

Honeysuckle Interiors are passionate about bringing something special to people’s homes, so to help you put the feel good factor back into yours, we are delighted to announce the introduction of our seasonal free prize draw where we are offering one lucky entrant the chance to choose from one of the following fantastic prizes:-

From Cat Walk to Curtains

We had such a lovely time at Focus and Decorex at Chelsea Harbour last week where we met the lovely Clarissa Hulse who  has just designed the wonderful new Kallianthi collection for Harlequin.

So many people remarked on our outfits that we had specially made - and that we'd made them
ourselves! Clarissa shares our passion for wonderful fabrics and textiles and was pleased to see her designs walking around Chelsea harbour!


From Cat Walk to Curtains..........

It’s an exciting season in the furnishing industry as September sees the launch of new fabric and wallpaper collections. Fashion has been a key trend driver in interiors this year with many design inspirations transcending from the catwalk into the home.  Vintage style has seen a revival too as homeowners choose to decorate their rooms that remind them of yesteryear.  Key interior design trends take inspiration from the 1940’s and 50’s as bright colours and patterns are making a comeback.  Villa Novas new High Society – Tea at the Ritz is a great example of this illustrating ladies wearing 1950’s printed dresses.

If you have a passion for fabrics and have a little imagination you can turn this theory on its head as the design team at Honeysuckle recently demonstrated. Inspired by Clarissa Hulse’s latest Kallianthi collection for Harlequin, decided to make their own outfits in beautiful curtain fabrics to wear at Chelsea Harbour’s Focus design exhibition.  Kallianthi is a breathtaking collection of fabrics and wallpapers with a botanical theme.

Recent trends have also shown that we are also starting to use more vibrant  colours in preference to natural shades for our walls.  Wallpaper is also a popular choice as it adds texture and warmth and has a certain amount of luxury to it. In austere times consumers will be looking for brightness and will reflect on better times. The new Kallianthi collection has this in abundance whether you choose to make it up as curtains or clothing.   Colour is all around us and we are constantly influenced by it whether we realise or not. Colour creates mood, ambience and atmosphere in a room it can make us feel cosy, cold, relaxed, happy or sad. If you want to add some colour into your home, why not pop along to the showroom and see the whole collection for yourselves - its stunning!!!

We also love this The High Society collection from Villa Nova - we all have to find a window to put this on...
