Love your home this Valentine’s day 

How much do you love your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home?  A snug and comfortable home is so important during the darker months and looking after your house inside and out is vital to the sense of ease a Chigwell home can offer.

Any home can be enhanced by bunches of flowers, and around Valentine’s day there are always bundles of blooms to be had but why spend money on perishable flowers when you could have more permanent ones?  Bold floral prints are back for this Spring. As we know it is hardly ground-breaking that florals for soft furnishings return in the spring but they are being incorporated into furniture in a more overt way, with large flowers that are fun and funky.

Rather than a traditionally feminine look, for 2018 florals are being used in a more interesting styled casual bohemian way. Juxtaposing florals with organic textures and neutral palettes evokes a new kind of elegance that is appealing say designers. If statement furniture is too much then soft furnishings are an easy way to add a bit of love to your Chigwell home. Luxurious floral bedding, throws, rugs and cushions really do add the finishing touches to any room. 

If you still prefer a more traditional style you could be bold with a handful of Liberty London printed fabrics. Lots of people love their homes by creating a harmonious mixture of iconic florals, retro geometrics and modern motifs with Liberties pattern-heavy array of velvets, linens and cottons. Many Liberty prints lend themselves beautifully to cushion covers and quilts that you just can’t live without. 

Of course, if furniture covered in florals feels a bit too risky, and you prefer more a more minimal approach to soft furnishings you could always treat your bedroom to some classic bloom-covered bedding. All perfect ways to love your Chigwell home.
