Layering Fragrance in your Home for Christmas

At home we love to layer our different ranges of scents throughout the cottage.  Reed diffusers are great to give the base perfume, for a scent of a newly decorated Christmas Tree we use our Forest or Juniper and Spruce, it’s a combination of scotch pine, clary sage, falling leaves, and juniper berries.  Topped up with a burning scented candle of spicy apple, cardamon, nutmeg and cinnamon.  In the kitchen we love the Anjou Pear, roasted pear and plum with vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg or the Bay Garland, it smells of a freshly picked bunch of herbs.  Lastly and not least the main rooms of the house are immersed in our signature scent of diffuser, room spray and candles of a sweet but citrusy smell of honeysuckle spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and zest.

It’s very important to greet your Christmas Guests with a wonderful fragrance in your home.

Try our Signature Scent, of honeysuckle, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.

Take a Seat

Inspiring and tastefully designed armchairs are very important as a focal point in any room.  The design has to have longevity and comfort, with ample portions,  and most importantly to be pleasing to the eye.

Dream Doors

Why have boring old doors when you can have fabulous ones.  We like to upholster ours in texturised fabric, zebra hides or rich velvet framed in antiqued studs, or camouflage them with art.  Here are a few to give you ideas.

Living Outdoors

We were delivering outdoor furniture this week, dressed with beautiful cushions, and thankfully the sun is out.   What is your favourite outdoor colour scheme?  Maybe it is blue and white, our favourite, or you may like a riot of colour.  Here are a few snaps to inspire and show examples of fabric available at our showroom to revamp garden seats and lounge areas.

 

Outdoor furniture delivered to our client’s home where George the boss

of the house found the Manuel Canovas cushions a treat.

Arté International

 

 

 

The trend this year is for rich textured wallpapers, a wonderful backdrop for your art collection and textiles.  It gives the walls a feeling of being upholstered so that it’s elegant during the day and rich and sumptuous during the evening.  The new collection form Arté International is in our Showroom.

Dreaming of Outdoors

Client’s requests for outside architecture for their gardens increase dramatically after their trips to the Chelsea Flower Show, so,  we thought we would give you a glimpse of just some of the water features, sculptures, planters and urns that are available from Ian Thompson Interior Design and of course outdoor seating and dining.
