After a rather cold and snowy start to March, I’ve come to realise that I should keep my interiors flexible. What I mean by this, is that I should pick pieces that are versatile for all seasons. The new colourful Arcade range from A by Amara has fulfilled this role.
It’s also the perfect example of decorating with colours for a bold living room.
The vibrant colours are perfect for Spring/ Summer, but would look great in a Winter setting too. I was initially apprehensive about a dark patterned rug on the floor, but this Dotted Lines rug has created an amazing visual impact.
It has given the room depth and a cosy feel. It has also worked really well with the brightly coloured cushions.
I’ve used my white coffee table to tame any pattern overload.
I have also used the Parade yellow vase and books with similar pops of colour to the cushions to break up the focus of colour in one area. The pure silk cushions in the far distance are also from the Arcade range. I think the Arcade range really encompasses many styles, but at its core, it is Maximalism with colour. The bold drip inspired inspired print cushion is called Trapeze, the central tassel cushion is called Gallery ( it has a matching throw which is draped on the arm of my sofa) and the striped pom pom cushions at the back are called Regale. I was so pleased with this Circus spot vase, because it was perfect for housing my fern plant. I’m not sure how long my fern will last, but you can get a faux one too from the Arcade range.
My Circus vase sits on a beautiful grey and white marble table, also from the A by Amara range. You can see the marble side tables in the far left of the above photo. So what do you think of the bold living room ideas, using Arcade, from A by Amara?
I hope the colours have brought a smile to your face. I have styled the Arcade range in my workspace too if you fancy taking a look.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week.
