Outdoor Home Hacks

We’ve all gone bonkers for outdoor living (I think that might have been something to do with last Summer). Anyhow, it’s here to stay, and it’s great to see that it’s opened people’s eyes to the endless possibilities of what can be achieved outdoors and how wonderful and charming your outdoor space can become.

Anyone can create an outdoor area, perfect for summer soirees or cosy winter nights, no matter what your budget. There are some fantastic brands around that offer stylish and sophisticated outdoor items, from budget to luxury. But I’ve loved seeing the creativity of the population and some of the DIY efforts of the nation.

If you are feeling creative and want to put a little effort in, here are my top four hacks to creating a great area on a budget:

Lighting without having to wire
Light and ambience on an evening is key to creating a dreamy, cosy area. Using basic materials like a plank of wood, a tree branch, food storage jars, chains or rope and a handful of pillar candles can go a long way, and hey presto you have an outdoor chandelier. Take a look these fabulous inspos:

Keep toasty
We know we can’t rely on the British weather, our summer days may bring the summer sun, but the evening temperatures can most certainly plummet. So to keep the party going into the cooler summer evenings, think outside the box, visit a second-hand market and be sure to keep your eye out for any large iron pots, or planters and with a bit of TLC, a sturdy and safe surface you have an instant fire. Another great find on eBay is the ‘washing drum’ fire pit. Trust me, these are great.

Go vintage.
There’s something so effortlessly cool about ‘vintage’. Not only does it look great but it’s also a fantastic way to upcycle and be sustainable. Go for a rough, weathered, or natural look or spruce an item up with a bit of shabby chic pain. Either way, make sure you treat your furniture. It may be vintage, but you don’t want it rotting in the outdoor elements.

Go Green on your patio.
Planters are great for adding texture, colour, and warmth to an area, and best of all, you can pretty much make a planter out of anything waterproof, bearing in mind the size of your plants, positioning, and the style you want to achieve. Hanging plants, table plants, floor plants your options are endless, here’s few we like:

If you’ve created something magical in your garden or balcony, we’d love you to inspire and share with others and dont’ forget to tag us @tutti_interiors #tuttiinteriors

Interior Design Trends 2021

It’s a difficult job to keep up with the latest trends as there is often so many depending on where you look. The key is to use trends as inspiration whilst always being true to yourself, after all, your space has to function and feel the way you want it too. I’ve pulled together a few that I’ve seen emerging this year.

  1. The Pantone Colour Institute has named two colours this year as the shades of 2021, Illuminating Yellow and Pale Grey these two independent colours highlight how different elements come together to support one another. Read more about the union of these two colours https://www.pantone.com/uk/en/color-of-the-year-2021
  2. Both Dulux and Little Greene have been inspired by natural, earthy palettes this year, introducing browns, greens, deep reds and rusty tones all lend themselves to creating warm and welcoming spaces and site perfectly with the old-world influence trends.
  3. A big trend emerging is Cottagecore. Taking the simplicity, comfort and idealisation of countryside living, it’s a mix of ‘vintage influencer’ and ‘grandma’s kitchen’. How to live the Cottagecore Dream https://www.lifesavvy.com/30532/how-to-live-the-cottagecore-dream/
  4. Keeping its spot this year is houseplants. Following this hot trend from 2020 houseplants are still super fashionable, adding a touch of colour and texture, they instantly freshen up a space. Dried flowers have also seen a huge surge in popularity this year too.
  5. My favourite trend this year is knotted light fixing. Great aesthetic lights lift your eye upward and can encapsulate the whole room.
  6. One of the biggest interior trends for 2021 is Japandi – a fusion of Japanese minimalism and the warmth of Fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian design. Combining sleek lines, muted colour tones and carefully chosen statement furniture makes for the perfect Japandi look and feel. Calm, cosy and uncluttered.
  7. An on-going craze is #Sheflies … people reverting to open shelving instead of closed cupboards especially in Kitchens and Bathrooms. They share their efforts proudly on social media tagging their designs.
  8. Neon and LED lighting with inspirational, positive or relaxing quotes. A strong statement to any room with its vivid colours.
  9. Herringbone flooring has seen a surge in popularity in homes around the UK. This classic pattern of flooring was first seen in the 16th century and was used as parquet flooring. Today it provides a classical twist to home interiors.

A little design help

Having managed to escape to my haven of tranquillity in Southern Spain, I’ve had time to reflect on my journey of launching a new business in recent times.

I chose a time in my life that felt right to launch my business, however, unfortunately for me, and no doubt millions of other people, we’ve been hit by this horrendous pandemic.

In addition to the challenges of any young business, I’ve had to navigate my way around how to provide a super personal service in a ‘not’ so personal environment of social distancing and lockdowns. I had to ask myself how could I thrive in the midst of this crisis, how will it change the interiors industry, will customers still want a service, what other aspects will it impact in my industry?

Fortunately for me, I have, thankfully, been working on new projects. Maybe it’s been people spending hours on end in the same space that has determined how their environment makes them feel, or it might be the realization of how important the function of their home is, that has made them reach out for help. Whatever reason, I am grateful as designing a space to enhance how that makes my clients’ feel in their home is key to any project.

Managing my projects safely has been at the forefront of my mind, and having recently stepped out into the big wide world I have managed to put smiles on my clients’ faces by delivering a variety of projects. A popular paid service that I have recently delivered to clients’ in the past few months is a Design Consultation.

An interior Design Consultation gives me the opportunity to see my clients’ home first hand and address their painpoints. I take the time to listen to their issues, likes, dislikes, and learn more about their vision for the space and how it fits in with their lifestyle, and ultimately gauge what guidance they need.

Once the brief is established I will spend time planning the space, from layout to colour schemes, furniture to styling. Based on the clients’ budget I also provide a ‘shopping list’ and visuals of the space before finally presenting. This part of my job gives me so much pleasure, not only do I get to design beautiful spaces but seeing a clients’ reaction is priceless!

Alongside Design Consultations, I also work alongside clients’ through renovations, extensions and new builds, as well as offering a turnkey and styling service for homes and events.
