Style tips to steal from amazing cathedrals

If we look back at the history of the British Isles we can see how our vibrant and sometimes volatile past has shaped the country we live in. Just take a look at the ecclesiastical buildings that punctuate our urban and rural landscapes, they tell many stories of turmoil as well as acting as sanctuaries for the people living around them.

There are 69 cathedral cities in the UK. By virtue of having a cathedral they are therefore known as cities, and with that title a sense of culture and importance is attributed. So wherever you are in the UK it’s hard to ignore these bastions of power that spike on our skylines and have dominated our surroundings for centuries.

As a non-religious person I guess it could seem strange that I have such a love for cathedrals and find them so inspiring. On a subconscious level they may be influencers of my interiors taste. Whether that is a moody grisaille colour palette, a Renaissance style opulent table display, theatrical use of draped fabrics or love of pews and bench seating. Cathedrals seem to be even having a moment in popular culture, as a number of films set in medieval Britain (featuring cathedrals) are released this year. ‘Tulip Fever’ was filmed at Norwich Cathedral, amongst other settings, and will set more hearts on fire than Alan Partridge’s under pants. Released in February it stars actors including Judi Dench, Cara Delevigne, and Skandi beauty Alicia Vikander. Its sumptuous yet rustic interiors and sexy floral appeal are sure to inspire people to deck out their homes in a similar becoming way.

Contemporary Interior Designs

Renovation & Interior Design of a penthouse of 65 mq. / by Maurizio Giovannoni Architetto

© Mikko Ala-Peijari

Contemporary interior designs are perfect for anyone wishing to transform their home into a comfortable and welcoming abode. This interior décor style is growing in popularity mainly because of its versatility and ease of assimilation in any space.

Chances are you’ve heard about contemporary design but are hard-pressed to identify it from other interior décor styles. According to the dictionary, contemporary means belonging to or occurring in the present. Apply this definition to interior design, and contemporary refers to a style that is in vogue at any present moment. These designs are ever-evolving, and what might have been contemporary a decade ago is now outdated.

Contemporary interior designs are casual, sleek, and inviting. They give you the freedom to experiment and come up with a home that reflects your own personal style. Additionally, this style is incredibly adaptive, so it can blend well with others to create a truly unique interior for your home.

4 Ways to Create an Eating Space in a Small Home

dining-room-tables

Having a space in your home to enjoy your meals is important. If you happen to live in an apartment or small home, you may have resorted to solutions like TV trays or everyone eating in separate rooms. Eating separately from your family can get lonely, while TV trays in the living room can lead to crumbs and food on the sofa. There are more feasible options that will define an eating area for you and your family to enjoy.

1. Split the Living Room Space in Half

The living room is typically one of the larger spaces in the home. If you can live with a little less living room space, mapping off part of it for a dining area can work. You can review sites with dining room furniture to get an idea of what would fit in the space. Going with a smaller square table with four chairs might work for a smaller family. You can use a room divider or your couch to separate the two areas.

2. Eat-In Kitchen

If you have a large kitchen, you can create a designated area for meal time. Eat-in kitchens are nice additions to a property and can improve the function of your living space. A small foldable table or even a kitchen nook and small table would work well in the corner of your kitchen while still providing optimum space for preparing meals.
