Orange is the happiest colour-Frank Sinatra
Idesign Interiors (SW) Ltd
Frank Sinatra was apparently quoted as saying 'Orange is the happiest colour' and I think that couldn't be more true when you look at the orange and copper tones in this recently refurbished kitchen diner. It wasn't the easiest brief, 'Scandinavian style meets 1970's retro' but thankfully we have combined our customers favourite things in this eclectic yet undeniably 'happy' space.

You can see how amazing the views are from this apartment and the client definitely wanted to use this space to entertain. Having these low hanging lights from Flos are perfect when it gets dark as they give a beautiful glow over the Tom Dixon marble table. We also love the orange Eero Saarinen chairs against the blush pink Gubi Beetle chairs. Design by Sara Slade Interiors Photography Megan Taylor

Culshaw Kitchen Makers
This Mid Century inspired kitchen was manufactured for a couple who definitely didn't want a traditional 'new' fitted kitchen as part of their extension to a 1930's house in a desirable Manchester suburb. The key themes that were important to the clients for this project were: Nostalgia- fond memories how a grandmother's kitchen used to feel and furniture and soft furnishings the couple had owned or liked over the years, even Culshaw's own Hivehaus kitchenette that the couple had fallen for on a visit to our showroom a few years ago. Mix and match - creating something that had a very mixed media approach with the warm and harmonius use of solid wood, painted surfaces in varied colours, metal, glass, stone, ceramic and formica. Flow - The couple thought very carefully about the building project as a whole but particularly the kitchen. They wanted an adaptable space that suited how they wanted to live, a social space close to kitchen and garden, a place to watch movies, partitions which could close off spaces if necessary. Practicality: A place for everything in the kitchen, a sense of order compared to the chaos that was their old kitchen (which lived where the utility now proudly stands). Being a bespoke kitchen manufacturer we listened, drew, modelled, visualised, handcrafted and fitted a beautiful kitchen that is truly a reflection of the couple's tastes and aspirations of how they wanted to live - now that is design!

Midcentury modern design was born out of the 1950s and 60s, in the middle of the 20th Century, as the name suggests. Often referred to as simply midcentury as well as midcentury modern, it can be recognised by the iconic designs that were born in the period, such as the G Plan wooden furniture of E Gomme and chairs by Arne Jacobsen and Charles and Ray Eames.

Midcentury design incorporates clean lines, rich colours and materials, and an effortlessly retro feel. Teak wood, tapered furniture legs, rectangular sideboards, shapely upholstery and sunburst designs are all elements that make up midcentury modern decor and design. If you want to add a bit of midcentury sophistication to your home, try a midcentury sofa with a wooden frame, spindly legs and simple soft upholstery. Make sure to add a low and sleek midcentury coffee table in walnut or teak, and you’ll be set. For full-blown retro midcentury fun, look for the famous egg chair, Palm Springs prints, bold colours and monochrome prints, pop-art posters and shag carpets. Midcentury design can either be turned up high or added subtly to a modern home, it’s up to you how far you want to take it.
