Today we are visiting Chandra's house to look at how well this neutral grey and warm red accent theme can enhance your home decor. Chandra has created a beautiful feel in her living room with these pale greys and warm tones of natural dark wood floors and oak furniture with bright red fabrics and faux fur pillows that feel cosy and inviting.
Continuing on our neutral grey theme for that stylish and simple living look why not add some bold splashes of red to give your home a warm and comforting feel especially on these cold winter evenings.
Mango Tree Knobs have just launched a new set of mixed ceramic hand painted cupboard knobs in shades of red and grey that would go very well with this decorative theme. Click here to view this set on our website.
We love what Chandra has done with this piece of furniture that she purchased which is both a useful seating area and opens up to become a very handy storage space for hats, gloves and scarves. By giving it a makeover in this beautiful distressed grey Shabby Chic effect and placing it in her hallway it has a useful purpose as well as creating a welcoming feel as you enter her home.
If you would like to create a similar effect on a piece of furniture you have at home why not visit the Vintage with Grace website and take a look at their Chalk Paint and get some great ideas of the special effects that you can do to completely transform an old piece of furniture.
Chandra found this amazing antique carved wooden cupboard in a shop in Brighton many years ago and it has moved with her from room to room. It now has pride of place as a grand centre piece in her bathroom where she keeps her perfumes and toiletries and we love the pretty lace covers over the natural wicker baskets.
Chandra has a Spanish heritage and we can see that throughout her home in the little touches and the lovely ambience she creates. Her kitchen is modern and minimalist with plain white units and lots of stainless steel and brushed chrome finishes but she still brings her special style with these heavy looking antique brass candle holders and the some exquisite ceramic pieces dotted around.
So we hope we've helped inspire you with the help of Chandra and her beautiful home ideas.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year from the Mango Tree team.
