Talking Interiors and Rooms?

Ever had that lost feeling with a room? Not sure what goes where or what to achieve in that room? No clue on colour schemes and cannot see a vision at all? Don’t worry we have all been there and that’s where we come in. Interior Designer Leigh Hall can envision a room to the highest of specs, with all your desired requirements and necessities Leigh will incorporate your vision with her touch so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

What are the interior colour trends for 2019?

2019 is the year for colours. Three in particular, corals, blues and greens. By using these colours via accessories such as vases, sculptures, figurines, cushions, blinds and much more a room can be uplifted. These contrast colours go with any form of neutrals such as whites, beiges or greys. Here at Strive, our accessories showroom boasts endless vases and other small accessories all with these colours in mind. Our infamous green jars which can be found on our website have been very popular and look different in a room, they add a pop of colour and are super contemporary.  These jars and figurines start from about £30 on our online shop. Green kitchens are also the in trend for 2019, and if you don’t feel brave enough to go with our Fitzroy green kitchen, you will surely love a green feature wall via our Cole & Son Forest wallpaper that endless hours of art work has gone into!

What is new to our social media feed?

Strive For Design can be found on all social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Instagram. New to our feed is our YouTube Channel! This is a great insight as to what founder and interior designer Leigh Hall thinks to various products, how they work, what their value is and how they can improve a home. It’s also a great insight into the type of person you will be greeted by when venturing to the showroom. Leigh is an extremely welcoming individual with a super eye for detail. When you arrive you won’t want to leave! She provides so much thought and inspiration you start to think; well can I do every room in my home? And can I do it now? It all gets very exciting. Which leads many to customers running away with new ideas for their home. Leigh works closely with budgets which is also a very welcoming feeling. Although at Strive luxury interiors are the key factor, Leigh understands that not everyone can afford to make a luxury home with a luxury budget. Thankfully, Strive Marketplace enables those working with smaller budgets to achieve their goals! Currently, on Strive Marketplace (can be found at the online shop) you will find budget bathrooms, mattresses and beds. There are other various interior décor accessories that are reasonable, as well as lighting and wallpaper.
