aesthetically speaking: new wave british decor

there are some styles that are so classic and cool, they never go out of fashion, and for me, british inspired design is one of those things!

british living room blog

when you imagine the traditional english home a few things come to mind; beautiful case goods in rich stains with a bit of patina, a great paisley or floral printed sofa, well worn leather sofa (or faux!) and of course stripes. however, the modern british movement is taking these tried and true elements and reinterpreting them into contemporary scenes. taking the familiar, adding a twist of whimsy with light, airy elements to keep the traditional alive, while bringing in a young, fresh feel. we’ve taken the liberty to pull together a room fit for princess kate herself, with nods to the time-honored, with some quirky touches.

aesthetically speaking: industrial style

for today’s “get the look” feature, we look at spaces which have have embraced industrial style and how you can add a bit of this decor in your home. while industrial style began as a trend a while back, it has stood the test of time and now continues to still be used when mixed with other styles to give a space a more relaxed feel. it is not just a flash in the pan trend, but one that continues to leave us inspired in how it has been adapted with the times!

one of the main things we love about industrial style is how you can find one-of-a-kind pieces that you can personalize in a different way than what it may have been originally used or intended. sometimes, the reasoning is very intentional because you want to add a vintage or aged feel to a space to give it more character. whatever your choice is, it appears industrial decor is here to stay and we love design that has longevity!

if you’re looking to bring an industrial feel to your interiors, take a cue from these wonderful spaces that embrace this style, using industrial pieces that mix with more modern and contemporary details. we’ve sprinkled in items from rummage to highlight how you can can bring an industrial feel to your interiors in smaller ways, from furniture, accessories or lighting, before committing to the look for a whole remodel. do you have a favorite space below? let us know in the comments!

in this installment of the project diaries, we take a look back at molly sims‘ home which made the march cover of lonny! such a fun project for the kpi team to work on! if you haven’t viewed the story online, be sure to visit the magazine’s website for many exclusive pics here to get a complete view of what kishani designed for molly and her growing family. if you loved the feature, guess what? you can actually buy many of the exact or similar pieces from rummage directly! some require a bit of lead time, so always consult with our shop directly to get exact information for the item that you are choosing! hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we love them having them in our inventory!

molly sims and kishani perera via kishani perea blog

molly and kishani have worked together on several homes, but this one was particularly special because it is the home that molly is raising her family.

blue and green drip glaze lamp via kishani perera inc.

saturated colors from the accessories, lighting and wall art make the living room really pop against the neutrals! this mid-century blue and green drip glaze lamp is very similar in shape to the one in the living room. if you love the style, you have to view our wonderful inventory of additional drip glaze items here!

 bristol side table via kishani perera inc.

isn’t this a beauty? we love the bristol side table designed by kishani for molly’s living room! it is made of wood with an antiqued mirror top. the great thing about this piece is that we can make it custom in size and with different finishes if you have a specific design need!

mud-cloth textiles via kishani perera inc.

tie dyed textiles are so popular right now! we love the options kishani used throughout molly’s home, but these mud-cloth textiles in yellow, orange, green and purple are equally perfect for injecting your home with color this spring! if these textiles speak to your design sensibilities, we can create custom pillows using one or more of these options!

cadogan coffee table via via kishani perera inc.

if you did a double take when you saw the cadogan coffee table in molly’s living room, we don’t blame you! another of our favorite pieces designed by kishani herself! we particularly love the bulb turned legs! such a handsome piece for any home!

derby poufs by kishani perera inc.

two items not shown in the living room photos of molly’s home, but we would be remiss not to mention are these gorgeous derby poufs! the nailhead trim details that kishani added to the overall design are so striking! we can easily custom design these in other sizes and fabrics too!

albin mobile in earth tones via kishani perera inc.

every baby needs a mobile over their bed! the handpainted neon one in little brooks’ room was so unique and artistic that kishani made sure to design another with earth tones. and yup, you guessed it…custom orders are available in either color wave through our shop!

thanks for reading our “get the look” feature into molly sims’ home! what’s your favorite piece designed by kishani? let us know in the comments!
