Treat Yourself

Treat Yourself

Some days it is a treat to discover new pieces – some of them mixed with more established favourites, and some holding their own because they are just so darn sexy.  Imagine sinking into one of these Timothy Oulton sofas from Dawson & Co, under the rock crystal Elysium Ball Pendant.

Colour Inspiration From Kawakawa Leaves

Colour Inspiration From Kawakawa Leaves

We are surrounded by inspiration, so when developing paint colours, and creating colour schemes, I am always on the look out for new combinations of saturations and tones. The colours of these dried Kawakawa leaves are rich in indigo, soft green, walnut brown, and blushed taupe. It’s one of my favourite teas for a revitalising tonic too.  I loved the synchronicity at the launch today of new furniture and furnishings in similar colours.

BTW note no ‘chopped’ cushion in sight !!  Stop it with the chopping people.

Sourcing New Furniture & Rugs

Sourcing New Furniture & Rugs

As Interior Designers we have access to trade only furniture.  Sienna Design passes on some discount, which varies depending on the store, and the job.  We also charge an hourly rate for sourcing these products.  The feedback from our clients for this service is very positive, as it saves them both valuable time and money, as well as receiving the benefit of our knowledge, which we continue to update, via product launches, and research.

WRW & Co Furniture

WRW & Co Furniture

Exhibiting at The Allpress Gallery at the moment are these unique, beautifully crafted pieces of furniture, using recycled aged timber.

“I make, not manufacture – crafting each piece to have integrity, simplicity and strength with a fresh contemporary aesthetic. It’s locally made furniture – minimal in its complexity, focussed on quality, form and function.” William Worsp, WRW & Co, Raglan.
