The Ideal Home Show 2018 - Roomsets
The last post on the blog was all about my visit to The Ideal Home Show at Olympia in London. Whilst Gina was busy giving interiors advice to homeowners in the Renovation Hub, I took a look around the show to see what I could find. Whilst the previous post focused on the Show Homes, this post is all about the roomsets.
I'm going to let the images do the talking for most of this post as there is such a lot to see.
On entering the Ideal Home Show one of the first things to see was a set of 6 room sets sponsored by Good Homes Magazine and Tesco. The first one that caught my eye was this dining room in tones of blush pink and gold which I recognised as I'd been admiring on instagram previously.
Across the way from the dining room was the hi-tech media room. This features a projector wall for an instant home cinema which can also be hidden away and smart gadgets for wi-fi connectivity.
The next room set was a kitchen in sleek greys with contrasting wood and copper accents.
Next on the list was a botanical themed bedroom. The tones of sage greens and off whites and the natural wood of the four poster bed worked well together. A mustard accent chair brought a shot of colour into the room.
Plants were a feature of the scheme. Faux ivy trailed around the head board of the four poster to add interest.
Plants were a feature of the scheme Hanging plants in glass and macrame holders were dotted around the room and the mirror and terrariums on the wall and desk are a great way to add in the geometric trend.
A living room set based around colour blocked walls in pastel shades was a bright and breezy relaxing space.
Earthy rusts, pinks and mustards accented the cream sofa and natural wood shelves.
These wall mounted drawers and wooden shelves make a handy laptop stand and impromptu work space.
Colour block walls, cleverly chosen accessories and a gallery wall bring well balanced colour in to the room. Terrazzo is a current trend in surfaces and accessories and is brought into the room with this lovely lamp.
Murals and patterned walls are a trend that I'm seeing more of. The bathroom roomset really made the most of this with a gorgeous waterproof floral wallpaper. Have you ever seen a shower head that big!
A freestanding bath and a sauna create a haven for wellness and relaxation.
Moving on into the main kitchen and bathroom section of the show where I could see this colourful kitchen glowing from a distance.
Whilst I think the neon lights will be great for parties I think it would be hard to live with all the time. It's an inventive feature and it set of the pink walls and artwork really well.
Next to this was another kitchen in a completely different style. The rustic industrial trend was a big feature here.
Open stainless steel shelving, wooden table, crates and a geometric tiled floor come together in this well designed space.
A cosy green velvet chair and plants bring colour pops of forest green with work well with the monochrome floor, stainless steel and grey walls.
Next there was a section of lovely bathrooms created by online bath supplier Victoria Plum.
The first one was described as a French floral bathroom. A feminine space with soft warm walls, floral accents, a chandelier and a centrepiece freestanding bath.
Next was a more masculine room. Soft concrete, dark woods and industrial lighting.
The highlight was an iconic tin bath standing in the centre of the room. It looked great with the geometric floor and black and concrete shelving.
Dual sinks: Set oon concrete shelving with black accent mirrors against porcelain tiles with tones of dark wood set the tone for this stylish bathroom.
Finally a Japanese spa style bathroom. Whilst the spa bathroom is tipped as a bathroom trend this year this one focuses on the oriental themes of the trend. Paper screens, bamboo and hanging kimonos accessorised this room. But as ever the star of the show was the deep relaxing bath.
Finally not a room set as such but it was nice to see the return of former high street star BHS at the show. They are now back online at BHS.co.uk with their great range of fun affordable furnishings.
This bedding set in dusky pinks and lilacs I think would be great for a teenagers room.
The store is known for it's lighting. I'm tagging this beryl lamp as a future classic. It packs a lot of style considering the price tag. I also spotted it used in the innovation show home at the show.
