  3. Smart Feng Shui tips to create positive energy in your home

    Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that has made its way into Western interior design. When using Feng Shui, the goal is to design a home that aligns with who you are as a person. It is also a way to ensure a space allows your energy (or “chi”) to remain positive and constant. And who doesn’t want that? You don’t have to be a Feng Shui expert to apply some of its principles in the home. I’ve gathered five easy tips that even beginners can use!
    1. Get rid of the clutter
    reduce                     We’re all guilty of creating clutter now and then – I know I am. Living in a cluttered home can make you feel stressed and overwhelmed. An easy way to keep the junk from piling up is to do a quick de-clutter session once a week.
    1. Ensure quality lighting
    lighting                   Dim lighting can drain our energy, so make sure each room has the right amount of light. For me, the best source of light is natural light. Installing various light sources is necessary, of course, so you can have light during evenings or in rooms without big windows.  
    1. Keep electronics out of the bedroom
    phones                   This is hard, I know, but quality sleep and relaxation is essential for creating good energy. Not only does a TV or computer in the room tempt you to stay up later than planned, but electronics can also diminish your quality of sleep.
    1. Let nature in
    nature                     Nature is soothing and the five elements of Feng Shui (wood, earth, fire, water and metal) have a lot to do with the outdoors. Wooden furniture pieces, plants and an indoor water fountain are all great ways to add nature to your home.  
    1. Choose colours carefully
      colours                 In Feng Shui, colours are important. For example, if I want a room to be relaxing, I could use the color blue to create a sense of calm. Here is a useful guide I found for choosing colours in Feng Shui. After applying some of these basic Feng Shui techniques, you might start to notice a change in how you feel at home. Feng Shui can help you feel happier, relaxed and more energized.

  6. Hong Kong Furniture trends in 2018

    To come to some sensible advise on furniture trends for the coming years, we always fall back the key trends found on the Milan furniture fair.

    This Milan Furniture Fair reveals the biggest design trends for 2018.

    If you follow any interior designers on Instagram, you’ll no doubt have noticed photos from Milan Furniture Fair (Salone del Mobile Milan) dominating your feed in recent weeks.

    This annual event, now in its 56th year, lures the biggest industry names from around the globe for the largest trade event of its kind.

    SofaSale designers attended this year’s fair to observe what’s next in the ever-changing world of home design.

    We would like to give you’re a sneak preview of the latest trends for the coming year and see what we expect will hit the Hong Kong Furniture market in 2018.

    Colour

    An abundance of warm and earthy colours were on display at this year’s fair, replacing the more minimal palette of previous seasons.

    Tones of sienna, tan, terracotta through to stronger rust and russet were used all over on walls in rooms, as well as furniture and accent decor objects.

    Popular accent colours on show were black forest, emerald green and watermelon red.

    A standout experience at this year’s event was The Visit – a truly immersive experience into an early 1800s Milanese apartment where the current colour trends were played out in the most sophisticated and tangible way.

    Designed by Studiopepe, each room tells a story through the layers of furnishings, and shows how to mix terracotta, peach and pink with green in just the right amount.

    The trend of concealing storage and tableware was reversed this season, with plenty of freestanding cabinets with glass doors and open shelf racks for showing off crockery.

    The latest collection by Vincent Van Duysen for When Objects Work featured earthy colours in terracotta, glazed ceramic, glass and wood finishes. You would want to show them off.

    Living rooms

    Wallpaper in the living spaces is back and here to stay.

    The key trends are either geometric or organic. Geometric designs take cues from the Memphis style with dashes and stripes like the Weft Collection at Texturae, (which are similar to Greg Natale for Porter’s Paints.

    Organic styles were seen with soft and watercolour markings, or paint splotches, such as the handmade wallpapers by Martyn Thompson.

    These tend to be easier to live with, as they form a softer backdrop than bold geometric designs. Stay away from floral or damask designs.

    Furniture

    Milan showed a move towards comfort in couches, with many low, puffy, curved and plump shapes.

    A favourite was an interesting sofa Isla designed by Note for Sancal. It is almost like a daybed platform, with a backrest which divides the seating into three parts.

    Many designers took to showcasing fringing on furniture for a luxurious look with an edge.

    The fair showed a move towards comfort in couches, with many curved and plump shapes.

    Referencing 1950s glamour, long fringing was used as a skirt on marble coffee tables and also running along the bottom of a red velvet sofa at Editions.

    Our suggestion to you: try introducing fringing with a few stand out cushions for a quick update.

    Homewares and styling

    On the topic of styling, it is ‘more is more’ at the moment, however an edited selection goes a long way.

    Popular styles and materials displayed on homewares at Milan include terrazzo, velvet, ottomans and side tables, lamps, brass objects, handmade glazed ceramics, mouth-blown coloured vases, wooden vases.

    Indoor plants have been in our homes for a while now, and there was no indication of this changing anytime soon.

    Textile wall hangings are still a strong trend, especially with a modern take.

    In terms of decorative art, think outside the box. Textile wall hangings are still a strong trend, especially with a modern take.

    Studio Toogood designed wall quilts using a combination of sewed on fabric pieces and painted on colour to create organic shapes and markings.

    Bathrooms

    The move towards colour is continuing in the bathroom, not only through tiles, but also basins and toilets.

    We saw colours such as soft plum, dusty blue, dark green, beige, brown and charcoal by Cielo.

    These colours let a basin blend into a dark and moody bathroom, without the contrast of the usual white.

    If budget is no problem, then a bath cut entirely out of a slab of brown or black stone seen at Boffi and Agape is a knockout.

    The final verdict

    What’s in: Warm colours, natural stone, cacti, curved shaped furniture, wicker, cordless lamps, black kitchens, portable lighting

    What’s out: Florals, damask, polished glossy stone, white kitchens and bathrooms, copper and rose gold finishes, minimalism, shiny high-gloss finishes

    What’s next: Suede, more designers collaborating with mass-produced furniture brands, Asian-inspired design, red accents.
