How to Become Storage-Savvy with Ziggiziggi

We all have an idea of our dream home. Be it an upmarket penthouse or a mansion in the countryside, they all tend to have one thing in common – size.

We’d all love to simply have more space. Especially at this time of year, when we seem to accumulate endless miscellaneous objects from beach balls, to wedding favours, and random travel mementos. Having a giant home with plenty of storage would be ideal, but unfortunately it isn’t a reality for most of us.

That’s where Ziggiziggi comes in. With our featured products below, you can make your home feel more spacious and turn it into a haven of organised tidiness.

1) Mirrors

Mirrors not only make a room look double the size, but they can also make a room look larger by doubling up as a shelf or a cabinet to rid of your clutter.

We have a selection of bathroom mirrors that also double up as shelves.

For a contemporary style, go for the new Bevel Edge  Mirror & Shelf – click HERE to view on our website.

For a more natural style, try the Arena Bamboo Square Mirror Shelf – click HERE to view on our website.

Giving us an inside look into the world of hotel design, Pamela has picked 6 top trends for 2016…

1) Nature
One important interior design trend for Hotels for 2016 is bringing nature inside, with the emphasis moving to natural materials such as stone accents, wood features and decorative plants; there has even been a rise in indoor ponds and waterfalls. Another way to blur the line between outside and inside is using floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies. Floral patterned fabrics are also becoming increasingly popular and featuring in many textile ranges.

2) Texture and Colour
The mixing and matching of fabrics with contrasting textures is very current. For example, mixing faux fur with suede or velvet creates depths of texture.
The naturalistic design trend is cropping up again but this time with the ‘Nature Luxe’ theme – the combination of nature and metallics. This uses fabrics such as skins and hides and craft textures like knitted, woven and braided textiles and mixing them with metal to create a natural and luxurious design.

3) Authenticity with bespoke furniture
Hotels have become less of a temporary shelter for guests, whilst they explore new and exciting destinations, and more of a new and exciting destination in themselves. The shift in the way hotels are being chosen and used by customers has led to the need to make them stand out. A faceless room without personality will not give them the needed nudge to pick a hotel. How do you inject this personality into your hotel? As well as many other techniques, bespoke personalised furniture and interiors.

4) Rose Quartz and Serenity
Global colour authority Pantone surprised the design community by naming not one but two colours for the 2016 edition of its Colour of the Year forecast. The pastel pink Rose Quartz and powder blue Serenity may seem like a sugary sweet selection but according to Pantone, the pairing is in fact part of a more unilateral approach to colour—a commentary on the current societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity.
Following Pantone’s prediction, British wallpaper brand Graham & Brown’s 2016 forecast was full of dusty pinks and pale blues enlivened with warm metallic accents.

5) Warm metals
Particularly effective in the bathroom and kitchen space, rose gold, brass, copper and gold will continue to dominate in 2016. Golds and brass tones warm up a space, and reflective surfaces bounce light around a room. Using a few well-chosen pieces as accents helps to create an up market ambience in a room. According to London-based interior designer, Gemma Gordon-Duff of Gordon–Duff & Linton, it helps to pair these tones with raw, natural materials such as marble and wood. “Good quality materials like this are a great investment because they will never go out of style,” she advises.

6) 70’s Vibes
1970s-inspired furnishings are set to make a comeback in 2016 according to New York-based hospitality designer and entrepreneur Stacy Garcia. “The relaxed, free-spirited nature of that era has been attractive to the fashion industry and has quickly moved towards interiors as well. Many design elements of the 70s were bold, raw and globally-fuelled, as a response to the changing social and political environment of that time.”
Fabrics, furnishings and decorative items are incorporating updated 70’s flair, with revivals of Eames designs, and other 70’s staples such as Parker Knoll and Ercol having a revival on the high street.

 

Next time you check in to a hotel, try and spot some of these interior design features!

 

Hopefully these trends can also inspire your interior design choices in your home this year.
