Creating a Palm Springs inspired home with Jayson Brunsdon
Retro is modern again. And nowhere does it look more striking or more luxurious than in Jayson Brunsdon's playfully sophisticated spring homewares range. Taking inspiration from throwback tones and retro shapes, Jayson's added an unmistakeably elegant and modern twist to create a look that's entirely fresh and entirely his. In this edition of The Linen Club, we're showing how you can lean into the style of yesteryear to create a look that's entirely in the now.
Keep it clean and bright
Featuring bright colours, wild design and bold flair, retro style tends to describe decor from the 50's, 60's and 70's. And while the style of that era was visually busy, today's retro style is more refined and reserved. Clean, bright spaces are softened with feminine touches that hark to the past but are reinvented for today. Think the use of fuzzy throw rugs to anchor curvy furniture. A vintage dining table paired with crushed velvet cushions from your local op-shop. Well-placed and well-paired pieces from different decades can really add a sophisticated flair to your home.
Find your feminine flair with the Miami Throw in Mint or Silver or the Lummus Throw in Mint. Available soon.
Be Bold With Colour
Modern retro leans into colour in a big way. Whether it's soft pastel hues (think apricot, peppermint and flamingo pink) or strong accents (ocean blue, punchy pink, citrus yellow), a quirky colour choice can exude fun, sophistication and chicness all at once. Intense colours are best used sparingly, broken up by shades of white to help the colours pop and to ensure they aren't overwhelming in the space. Or try applying softer, more muted tones to a bigger canvas, like feature walls or even entire rooms. However you use it, be bold.
Make your place pop with the Avenue 800 Thread Count Cotton Quilt Cover Set.
The Power Of Plants
Whether it's spiky cacti, succulents or lush tropical plant life, the use of hardy, low-maintenance plants with strong definition are a must and can really help to break down the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living. Whatever you pick, be sure to place them in modern pots and containers for a clean look. And if you have any bold flowering plants outdoors, it's a great idea to mimic the key colours and feelings through your fabrics and artworks indoors.
Let The Light In
If you're lucky enough to live in a house with floor-to-ceiling windows, flowing sheer curtains that fill the entire height of your room will help to really open up your indoor spaces. And if you don't, crisp, white high thread count sheets help to add that instant air of sophistication to any room.
Bring in the crisp spring air with Avenue 800 Thread Count Cotton Sheet Set in Silver.
