Beautiful interiors don't have to break the bank

Posted: Friday 13th April 2018

The super-stylish interiors of Gasholders London come courtesy of design studio No. 12. Here, No. 12’s Emma and Katie select their favourite pieces to replicate the Gasholder style on a budget.

Introduce some greenery

£25, Extra large cement pot
Grace + Thorn | graceandthorn.com

Easy to care for and a quick way to inject a little nature into your room, plants are perfect for adding a burst of vibrant green and a great option for filling an empty space. This oversized concrete pot is the perfect container for adding industrial texture.

Go for classic design

£499, Sherborne armchair
Swoon Editions | swooneditions.com

A retro twist on a country slipper chair, this model is all about classic design. Following the principles of boldness through simplicity, the beautifully textured fabric and curved wooden arms make this armchair a standalone feature in its own right. Swoon indeed.

Choose function as well as style

£73, Gold aluminum tray
Bloomingville | amara.com

Add a little metallic texture into the decorative mix with this luxurious gold tray, which also creates a central focus for curating your coffee table’s adornments. Plus, used as a traditional tray, it is both decorative and functional at the same time – bonus.

Get the lighting right

£85, Klabb floor lamp
Ikea | ikea.com

Considered lighting is vital for giving a room atmosphere when the sun goes down. This dean-lined standard lamp will not only look stylish in an empty space but will also create a cosy glow thanks to its linen shade which spreads a gentle, dappled light.

Adorn your walls

From £35, Romina Ressia photograph
Yellow Korner | yellowkorner.com

Hanging photographic prints on walls is a great, cost-effective way to decorate your space and create an impact. Romina Ressia’s images combine the past and the present in a surprising- and slightly cheeky- way which is bound to get your guests talking.

Create a focal point

£325, Keeper coffee table
Loaf | loaf.com

For a twist on the standard circular coffee table, create a focal point with an oval shape instead. This glass-topped design has a vintage edge thanks to its brass frame, while tripod legs not only look cool, but create stability for when tea-time comes around.

Add some texture

£59, Knit blanket
Zara | zarahome.com

Zara’s mustard yellow cotton-blend blanket has raised panels for added tactile interest, while its muted shade perfectly complements a saturated palette. Gorgeous draped over a neutral sofa, it will also provide warmth when the temperature starts to drop.

Add a finishing touch

£22, Ceramic tribal platter,
Dunelm | dunelm.com

Mixing design can add interest to a room, so curate your accessories based on colour palette rather than period. This neutral ceramic tribal dish makes an eye-catching centrepiece for your coffee table, and can be filled with fruit or your favourite trinkets.
