Rooms we love

Tuesday, February 14, 2017



Last week, LA interior designer Melanie Burstin revealed her living room makeover on the Style by Emily Henderson Blog, featuring a few Fenton & Fenton pieces that she ordered late last year!

The result is stunning and we think our nude leather sling chairs look right at home in this mid-century head-to-toe tonal look that Mel has styled to perfection.

Choosing the right rug

Thursday, February 02, 2017

 
At Fenton & Fenton we believe that the right rug finishes a space to perfection! From making a style statement to defining a zone, a rug is a decorators’ best friend. Whether you are looking to add personality, colour, texture or warmth to a room; a rug is key to anchoring or defining a space and can transform and lift a room in a flash.

We also know that choosing the right size, design, finish and colour can also be daunting. So read on for tips and inspiration that tackle the most common questions we get.  

A great tool for helping you visualise the perfect rug is our online rug builder, where you can play around with pattern and colour to get a feel for how your own design could look insitu in a space.

Play with our rug builder here.





BIGGER IS ALMOST ALWAYS BEST

The most common decorating faux pas we see is rugs that are too small for a space. In our humble opinion, bigger is better almost always! A large rug that sits under furniture anchors a space, creates a zone and generally makes a space appear larger than it is.

We recommend using butchers paper, newspaper or masking tape to mask out an area to get your sizing right. A couch or bed should connect or preferably sit on a rug for a cohesive look. Dining chairs when pulled out from the table should hit the carpet underneath and rugs should be orientated to the room layout. Square or round rugs look great in square rooms and rectangular rugs in longer rooms.



LIFT A SPACE

Neutral furniture in shades of tan, grey, white and black are forever popular, and almost always bought to life with colour and pattern underneath. At Fenton & Fenton rugs are our room heroes. They can refresh and add wow to a space immediately without doing anything else.

If you already have your furniture, we recommend choosing colours that either complement or contrast. If you haven’t selected your furniture yet, start with a rug and build your look from the ground up.



LAYER IT UP

Have you made the mistake of buying the wrong size rug, but still love the pattern and colour? We love layering and mixing patterns (many people tell us this is what we do best). So, why not layer your rugs away too. Here, we have mixed a bold large print to anchor the space, and layered it with a softer smaller print. The palette is what ties it all together.



NEVER PLAY IT SAFE 

At Fenton & Fenton we’re not about playing it safe. Bold patterns, vibrant colours and differing textures are what takes a room to the next level. Colour, pattern and texture are integral to the Fenton & Fenton look and we design and create hand-made rugs in almost every colour and pattern imaginable.

Our in-house stylists are here to help you make the right choice and can guide you through the selection process, from getting the size right through to choosing a design, colour and finish that will take your room to the next level.



TURN YOUR HALLWAY INTO A HAPPY SPACE

Bright colours sing in entry areas and spaces with little furniture. They set the tone for the rest of the home and greet your guests with a wow. Introduce a showstopper Mr Fenton runner and you’ll be flinging the door open with pride.

Like our rugs and dhurries, our custom runners are available in almost every colour and pattern imaginable. In addition to lifting your aesthetic they are also a hardworking addition to your space.



TRANSFORM YOUR ROOM 


If you are ready for a room transformation and not sure how big to go or whether you need to tone down or lift a space, we’d love to help. We recommend you get started by doing your measurements (remember big is almost always best).

Then think about the design and colour. Ask yourself if the space is lacking colour, pattern or both? Is there furniture or artwork you need to complement? Or contrast? And, then determine whether you need to soften or sharpen a space. A round rug works wonders in softening spaces, and square or rectangular anchor or define a space.

Still unsure? Play around with our online rug builder OR make an appointment OR pop into our rug room (upstairs at Fenton & Fenton) 7 days a week for some expert advice. And, feel free to bring some pics of your existing space so we can present some options to you. Alternatively shoot us an email to styling@fentonandfenton.com.au


Happy Decorating.
