Speiring - Evoking a different picture

  Speirling - Evoking a different picture

Luckily for us no winter lasts for ever, and  with spring just around the corner, it’s time to brighten up your home to reflect the seasonal changes outside. By making small changes to your home’s interior, as the colder months begin to thaw and  the daylight hours start to lengthen again,  you can  evoke  a different picture inside  your house, complementing your outside surroundings rather than contradicting them. To do this successfully, marry the dynamics, tones and  textures of your home both inside  and  out to react to the seasonal changes; create a warm  and  inviting atmosphere during the colder months and  a brighter and  more  invigorating one  in the warmer ones. For now, exchange your winter cushion covers and  heavy throws for ones with punches of colour and  lighter fabrics like linen.


In your garden, let each season paint  a new picture by choosing a combination of shrubs and  perennials that  burst  into flower throughout the year, with colours that  reflect your interior choices to bring the  inside  out. For 2015 it’s looking to be a warmer year for all of us, leaving the cooler greys behind in exchange for warmer shades of taupe, beige, almond and  mahogany, with some of my favourites Pantone colours being steel grey, desert taupe and  frosted almond. Combine this muted pallet with splashes of colour including seaport, wood violet, radiant orchid,  crushed grape or red dahlia, and  your home will definitely make your guests feel uplifted as they enter. Marrying these highlights of colour up with the spring and  summer bloomers in your garden provides a harmonious finish to your newly energised home.


The transition from house to garden, and  the landscape beyond should be seamless, taking you and  your visitors through an enchanting journey from start to finish. For us, we understand in order for your interiors  and  exteriors to work in harmony, the different styles and  colour palettes must complement one  another, as well as reflect your own personal style throughout.


Spiering & Co. is a mother and  daughter team, where we have combined our academic training  and  professional experience as interior and  landscape designers, to offer clients a personal yet all-encompassing approach to design. This, coupled with an awareness of adding true  value to the project, which  comes from our redevelopment portfolio, is what  sets us apart  from our competitors.


Our seamless style was recently commended after being shortlisted for the International Design and  Architecture Awards for an open plan kitchen and  dining  room which  spilled out onto a small town  garden on Rostrevor Road in Fulham.  Resolving spatial,  structural and cosmetic barriers to create innovative, user focused designs, both internally and  externally,  is at the heart of our design ethos. We truly understand that  good design, that  is client focused, reflects the importance of fluidity and practicality as well as beauty, all of which  needs to be present throughout a scheme in its entirety.
