The Dormy House

Looking for colour ideas for giving your living room that eternal spring/summer feel, whatever the weather? Here are a few of our favourites:

1 Apple green has the warmth that pastels don't - go for checks for a cute vintage feel and add touches of aqua to pack a punch.
2 Want serene? Contrast apple green with brilliant white and soft greys. Plains work well but add natural textures for interest.
3 We love pink - use a variety of shades on your sofa to create a focal point and add a rug in the same colour palette to heighten the effect.
4 Small florals can be pretty, especially as upholstery fabric. If you go for greens, warm up the scheme with yellow walls.

Want to make a high impact change to one of your rooms that's simple to achieve? Here are some of our favourite ways to do it:
1. Make a home office a more inspirational space by pinning some favourite finds to a noticeboard http://bit.ly/1WRv0yj
2. Team a bench and shelving http://bit.ly/1QKkWXj to organise the area near a front or back door.
3. Boost the elegance of a living room with an upholstered footstool http://bit.ly/1M9EJyo in front of the sofa.
4. Turn a bed that's so plain you don't notice it into a fab focal point with a smart headboard http://bit.ly/1iHLmqg

Hankering after some spring colour to bring your home to life? Try these ideas:
1. Opt for fresh green on a statement armchair. It'll pop against pale flooring and walls.
2. Team pale blue and soft pinks for a fresh and pretty living room scheme.
3. Pick a headboard finished in a green patterned fabric for the bedroom.
4. Make your bathroom gorgeous with a touch of primrose yellow – and it's the perfect partner to blossom pink if you're after a pair of spring shades.
And don't forget that we can upholster our furniture http://bit.ly/1MlFzIU and headboards http://bit.ly/1iHLmqg in a fabric from our huge collection – or use your fabric. And when it comes to cabinet furniture http://bit.ly/1DEp31u, ours is now available in a gorgeous blue as well as neutral painted finishes, or you can buy it ready to add your own favourite paint shade.

Enough of the winter already - how about giving your kitchen diner a spring makeover to bring on the brighter days? Here's how?

1 Hang floral curtains (http://bit.ly/1TPnKRJ) at a large window - choose ones with a light background.
2 Choose bright colours for your painted furniture (http://bit.ly/1Iecnv8) - a must in a light-starved room.
3 Swap plain walls for pretty wallpaper (http://bit.ly/1N6Wwk0) - again, light backgrounds make rooms feel brighter.
4 Choose a light fitting that sparkles and paint furniture white in a bright space for a cool, French feel.

Thx to Pinterest and Country Living Magazine for the pics - pic 4 is ours

We are LOVING the look of Country Homes & Interiors' new front cover - as comforting as a hot chocolate after a cold winter's walk and endlessly stylish. Here's how to get the look (with a little help from us):

1 Choose neutral basics - monotones are a big trend for 2016 but warm them up with a creams and honey tones, plus a shot of rusty orange.
2 Layer pattern - our footstools (http://bit.ly/1GzTKkn) can be covered in our fabrics or yours to complement the pattern on a rug, the designs on cushions or on wallpapers.
3 Group furniture in a seating area to make the space feel intimate - even in a large room. Got a fireplace? It's the perfect cosy spot to start.
4 Talking of fireplaces - dress your mantel to impress. A mirror will make the space feel bigger and reflect the warm colours in your scheme; candles will add twinkling light; and framed photos will make the space feel homely, while the odd pine cone will up the wintry appeal.

Inspired by Country Homes & Interiors Magazine​'s pared-back-country-style-with-a-touch-of-vintage dining area (pic 1), we thought we'd show you more ideas for how to get the look just right:

1 Use tongue and groove boards for the walls - they'll give even a contemporary home a vintage appeal. Paint them off white or pale grey.
2 Use paint on furniture too - dark, dramatic colours such as nearly black are on trend and, matched with wood, look gorgeous.
3 Show off nice crockery in a glazed-door dresser - practical AND interesting to look at.
4 Add plenty of natural textures to your scheme - whether wooden chopping boards, sisal baskets or seagrass rugs...

Hallways have to work hard and keeping them looking good can be challenging. Try these ideas to ensure yours isn't a problem area.
1. If walls are getting knocked and scuffed, panelling to dado level will provide protection.
2. Fighting a losing battle with marks on the floor? A patterned finish is your friend. 
3. Maximise storage for a clutter-free hall. Where to put it? Think under stairs, slim tables along the length of the space, and use walls when floor space is short. Check out our storage options http://bit.ly/XCJxDK
4. Avoid the scattering (and losing!) of keys and make sure you don't forget to put letters in the post with an organising solution http://bit.ly/1ZSrHXI

Want to make rooms feel bigger without compromising their elegant look? Try these solutions:
1. Choose an upholstered divan with drawers http://bit.ly/1PmEGkA. Result? Extra stash space where there was none, but your bed's still a beautiful focal point.
2. Boost storage in large cupboards, utility rooms, bedrooms and hallways with a peg rail http://bit.ly/1JZni3e. Even mundane objects can look beautifully displayed!
3. Swap curtains for a Roman blind http://bit.ly/1OBDczx. You'll still get the benefit of soft pleats of fabric, but you won't need the wall space that drawn back curtains require.
4. Hide appliances in cupboards. Folding or sliding doors mean you don't need a great deal of room to open them.
Pics 1 and 3 are ours; thanks to Pinterest pinners for 2 and 4.

We like the style of this former forge (very Dormy House!) and we think our Spoonback chairs http://bit.ly/1ZHgcaR would work a treat by the cosy woodburner. Take the tour http://www.housetohome.co.uk/house-tour/picture/step-inside-this-idyllic-victorian-former-forge/1
