In the spirit of Spectre

15/10/2015 11:58

In the spirit of Spectre – Atkin and Thyme manifests masculine style

Gadgets, fast cars and an enviable love life are not all that James Bond has to offer the world. The iconic film franchise also features some iconic interiors. Elegant opulence in Octopussy, Goldfinger’s rumpus room and the ultimate bachelor pad in Diamonds Are Forever, Elrod house; are all examples of the innovative interior design showcased in the films.

Atkin and Thyme has highlighted its boldest pieces which are perfect for any man with a golden eye for style. The infamous villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld wouldn’t look out of place sat in the strikingly smooth Pimlico Button Back Armchair (£429) or Hepburn Chair (£329) in grey velvet. Partner either of these with the nickel plated Riley Drinks Trolley (£298) to create a sleek social space.

You’ll never say never to the art deco trend with the Madison Console Table (£399); the handcrafted black stained mango wood paired with antiqued brass plated legs and handles gives it a contemporary twist. 007 posters may not scream sophistication but there’s no reason super fans should have to go without. The Hudson Wall Mirror (£189), featuring a bullseye design subtly pays homage to the sharp shooting protagonist. Whilst the luxurious Stellar Green Marble Coffee Table (£298) is a silent nod to the spectacular opening sequence in the Quantum of Solace, which was filmed in the Carrara marble quarries.

Gone are the days where the dining room was used on special occasions once or twice a year. In the wake of rooms becoming multifunctional the dining room has become one of those versatile areas. The Dining Room can be used for parties, (stimulating intellectual debates over after dinner coffee) or marked as a pit stop for making last minute tweaks to homework during breakfast! With this in mind we’ve taken some time to explore the elements which go into creating the perfect dining room.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed a definite move towards bohemian style and sensibilities this summer. Our tv has been set to record for both ‘Life in Squares’; the new drama about the Bloomsbury group who were renowned for popularising the look, and ‘How to Be Bohemian with Victoria Coren Mitchell’. Free-spirited 70s style has also been a mainstay in the fashion pages, with full length floral and flowing dresses, suede, silk and even flares (who could ever have predicted the return of those…) taking centre stage. Romantic and relaxed, Bohemian style is perfect for lazy, late Summer days, but also set to be a key interiors look for 2016. In tribute to the trend and the free-spirited outlook it stands for (because we could probably all do with stressing a little less!), we have taken a look at how to add an element of the blithe bohemian spirit to living spaces.Read More

How to incorporate the Geometric trend into interiors with finesse

According to the ancient adage, if rain falls on St Swithun’s Day on 15th July it will continue to do so for the 40 days following. Because the temperamental British weather means this doesn’t bode particularly well for our chances of sunshine in July and beyond, we thought we would take a look at ways to imbue interiors with the spirit of summer through furniture and decoration; guaranteeing sunshine indoors, regardless of the weather outside!

As the warmer weather conjures thoughts of white sandy beaches and palm trees, creating a ‘tropical paradise’ in the home can offer all the atmosphere of sunnier climes, with none of the air miles. Using vibrant colours, floral motifs, exotic patterns and natural textures, the look of a far-flung paradise is easy to achieve – and all without a Hawaiian shirt or lei garland in sight!
