From furniture pieces, to unique home decor items, there’s no shortage of goods to add to your wish list from some amazing local stores located right in the heart of our amazing city.
Being house-bound doesn’t mean you can’t shop up a storm and get your home looking amazing! It is where we are spending so much time at the moment, so why not get inspired and get shopping. Give your house an update with a few sneaky new purchases while supporting your local small businesses at the same time.
Today I’m going to be sharing with you three of my favourite home retailers situated in Perth city, and share some tips of how you can get your interior decorator cap on and style up a storm within your own home, inspired by some items from their stunning ranges.
Arrival Hall, 162 Aberdeen St Northbridge
Arrival Hall, which opened its doors in the city last year, is a thriving space where those who share a passion for design and who love surrounding themselves with beautiful things can gather and be inspired. Each and every item in the Northbridge showroom and online store has been thoughtfully curated by it’s owners Lisa and Clem who hope that their carefully selected home, lifestyle and furniture products bring their customers as much joy shopping for them as they had selecting them.
For lovers of sleek and modern, Scandinavian designs, Arrival Hall is a haven for those unique pieces that instantly become a talking point of the home. From eye catching furniture pieces through to decorative items for the living room and bedroom and essential kitchen and dining items.
Currently, I am loving the use of colour we are seeing in interiors and love that Arrival Hall have a huge range of items in these on trend tones. The autumn hues, including rust, mustard, olive and dusty pinks, are great tones to use together or on their own to bring in colour to your home.
DesignFARM, 1000 Hay St Perth
DesignFARM is a well know, family-owned, designer furniture institution which has been open in Western Australia since 1997. They offer their clients a genuine experience and in doing so have established a longstanding reputation built through empowering people through design. Providing exceptional, authentic design pieces. You won’t find any replica designs at DesignFARM with them only producing unique, original designs which will last a lifetime.
Using designer pieces within your home add that uniqueness and flair which makes a home magazine worthy. Even adding just one designer piece such as an occasional chair or pendant light can change the whole dynamic of a room and make it’s accompanying pieces look more luxe.
Often people think that you shouldn’t mix natural textures and tones with metallic elements. But it can actually be a gorgeous combination! With the soft tones and touches of shine, giving a space a calm, yet luxe look, it’s a trend to keep in mind for current style trends. Especially great to use in areas such as bedrooms.
Jardan, 31 Malcolm St West Perth
Jardan is an Australian family-owned furniture business which has been in operation since 1987. With the slogan ‘made to last', the Jardan team know that there is no machine that can truly replace the hand or the eye. Therefore everyone of their pieces is hand crafted to order, with the utmost care and precision. Their timeless and quality made pieces are suitable for so many interior styles and give an instant look of luxe to any space.
I am a big fan of Jardan's dining room related products. Their classic design range of dining tables and chairs are suitable for a variety of interior styles including Scandinavian and Mid Century Modern. Furniture pieces which aren’t just for looks, but also as items to pass down to future generations due to their classic style and high quality.
To compliment these stunning pieces, I love to match them with a trend that is still very much in style, pastel tone pieces. This softens the timber and adds a sense of freshness to a space. This colour can be incorporated in to a dining area via tableware, art and home decor items.
Stay safe and happy decorating!
