At this time of the year we emerge bleary eyed from the long winter months and look forward to sunnier times. It’s also the perfect excuse to bring a fresh look to our homes. Here, Carole King shares her must-have URBANARA products for the new season, and she really knows her stuff.
With Carole’s passion and eye for design, her successful blog Dear Designer blossomed and led to the creation of Britain’s first digital interiors magazine. Inspiring readers to create their own beautiful homes is her first love, so we were very happy for her to cast her eye over our collection. By the look of things, high-contrast monochrome is the order of the day.
1. BRIELLE LAMP
You can never have too many lamps. This one doesn't shout from the rooftops but it's subtle good looks make it perfect to have beside the bed or in a corner of the sitting room. Better still, have two or three.
2. KATSURA VASE
Even without flowers this faceted vase would look lovely on a shelf or on the coffee table. Add flowers and it would look absolutely stunning!
3. Kolong Rug
I love texture... and especially so on a rug. I’m also in love with black and white. This round one ticks all the boxes for me.
I call this understated chic. A classic pattern in the softest wool with a gorgeous tasselled fringe to finish it off.
Changing the cushions on the sofa is the easiest way to update the home for the summer months. This stunning geometric design is bang on trend and would add the perfect colour accent to a neutral scheme.
