ARE YOU RED-Y FOR A RED SOFA?

Read More

YES YOU ARE!!!

I’m sure you’re wondering where this is coming from. Well, if you follow me on Instagram (@theinteriordecorator) you’ll know that there was a point during the week when I got all obsessed with RED.

It all begun when I was took my friend Pam sofa shopping. After a long search she finally fell in love with one, but her only problem was that it was red. Don’t get me wrong, she loved the fact that it was red, she just couldn’t see how she could have a red sofa.

“Seriously Jordan how am I meant to style my home around a red sofa? It would be so conspicuous! bla bla bla”

From the feedback I got from the sales girl Pam’s sediments were actually very common. That’s why they hadn’t been able to sell the sofa so far.

So I thought why not show any of you naysayers how BEAUTIFUL, COZY, FUN  yet SOPHISTICATED a red sofa can make a home look. And yes, it is very possible to do this regardless of your home’s theme. Don”t believe me? Well, have a look at these 5 different themes I have created all using a red sofa. Read More

LOOKING FORWARD: PANTONE 2016 COLOURS OF THE YEAR

Read More

2016 is upon us. Cue the cheers of glee, fireworks and most of all the new year resolutions that are meant to change you for the better. I have to confess that I am the ‘new year new me’ kind of girl, and yes more often than not the only thing that ends up changing is the date. On some few occasions though it has worked out for me, case in point 2015. I actually managed to adapt to a decent enough beauty regime, I eat healthier (that’s still a work in progress though) and I have a clear perspective of the relationships that matter in my life. 

Although, in most part there never is much change in the new year when it comes to our personal development the one change that lovers of colour can always depend on is a new colour of the year announced by Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color. And boy is it exciting!!! Okay maybe exciting is pushing it…more like interesting. Read More

Read More

Its the last day of 2015. I honestly cant believe how this year has flown by. It’s been such a blessing and I  truly thank God for every single moment.

One of my favourite design moments this year was when Pantone announced that their colour of the year would be MARSALA. The world-renowned authority on color had this to say about it:

“Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors”
