How to Use Colour in the Home

Interiors specialists FADS have dusted off their paint palette and created this graphical guide to using colour in the home. It’s long been recognised that colours have an impact on the way we feel; choosing colours to encourage certain moods is an interesting way to approach interior design!

The infographic shows the emotive responses we have towards colour and offers interesting tidbits about our attitudes to different tones. It concludes with a guide to using colour in the different rooms of our homes.

Unless you’re after a floor-to-ceiling colour block look, we’d suggest using these colours as accents against a more neutral scheme. So if your kitchen is a place where all the family like to hang out, keep things cheerful and energised with a sunshine-coloured feature wall and some retro orange accessories. Or incorporate pastel purples or greens in your bedroom to give it an airy, relaxed feel.

Take a look at the infographic below:

Simple Butter and Raisin Cookies

Traditionally served at Easter, but we think too good to limit to once a year.

Ingredients:

225 g butter, softened

140 g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

280 g plain flour

1 tsp mixed spice

55 g raisins

1 egg white, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 190C.

  • Mix the butter, sugar and egg, and then add the sifted flour and mixed spice. Halve the dough, shape into balls wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 – 60 minutes.
  • Unwrap the dough and roll out using plenty of flour. Cut out the cookies with a 6 cm fluted round cutter and place them on the baking sheets spaced well apart.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 7 minutes, then brush with egg white and sprinkle with the sugar. Bake for a further 5 – 8 minutes.

Homegrown Goodness: Making a Healthy Living from Your Backyard Garden

Growing a garden is a source of peace for many, but it’s also a source of added income for the industrious.  Living off of your backyard is a reality for those with foods to offer, and it’s at least another source of family income for hobbyists. Here’s how to grow your bank account after your garden.

Partner with Grocers and Local Restaurants

Local grocers depend on receiving quality produce, which sometimes pales in comparison to the tending loving care provided by a local grower. Also, speak with restaurant owners in your area.  Consumers are fussy, and there’s a huge market for specialty and ‘locally grown’ items.  Schedule regular deliveries where you can offer freshly picked tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and other items from your garden, delivered promptly each day, week, etc.

Make Friends with a Chef

Chefs sometimes work private parties and large-scale engagements outside of the restaurant environment.  Contact those who advertise their catering services and ask them about becoming a regular contributor of ingredients.

Give to the Needy

Government and private associations help those in need providing clothing, shelter, and food.  Contact local organizations who offer payment in exchange for regular deliveries to address group homes, soup kitchens, and shelters.

Speak with an accountant about tax breaks associated with providing money and resources to charity organizations.  In addition to the good feeling that goes along with giving, you’ll benefit your business and bank account.

Make Your Home a Store

In urban areas, it’s common for store owners to live upstairs from their groceries, trade stores, and brick-and-mortar business ventures.  Consider transforming your home into a business.  Sleep upstairs while renovating the first floor to accommodate consumers.

Why stop at growing a garden when you can donate more of your home toward your hobby and make money at the same time?  Speak with consultants in your area who can help you change your home into a moneymaking machine.  Or, contact http://www.4patriots.com/, who help families become more independent and self-reliant.

Moreover, if you have something of regional interest, or in season yet hard to find, borrow the stand idea above, and inquire about becoming a vendor at seasonal events and weekend tradeshows.

Allen Baler is a Partner at 4Patriots LLC, a Tennessee based small business that provides products to help people be more self-reliant and more independent. Allen founded the company in 2008 after 14 years as a corporate executive leading profitable business for the Easton Press and the Danbury Mint. He graduated with honors from Harvard University and resides in Nashville with his wife and 3 daughters.

Buying A New Fridge-Freezer With LG UK And Sarah Slade

When it comes to kitchen design, striking a balance between charm and practicality can be a real challenge. We must consider design fundamentals such as shape, colour and size, yet on the other hand, we need to choose appliances and utensils that offer high quality and great value for money.

So for design-conscious homeowners, the challenge of choosing a new fridge or fridge-freezer can be a daunting one. Should your choice focus on utility or style? Is it possible to design your kitchen around such a large appliance? And what about your existing fridge – is there any way you can update this piece to help it match your kitchen’s theme?

LG-Studio-American-Fridge-Freezer-Stainless-Steel-Set-In.jpg

If you’re struggling to find advice on choosing a fridge or fridge-freezer that complements your kitchen, LG UK’s new buyers guide could be just what you’re looking for. Working together with interiors expert Sarah Slade, contributor and former focus editor for ELLE Decoration UK, LG has provided an invaluable resource for fridge-freezer buyers.

LG-White-Kitchen-Contrast-Fridge-Freezer.jpg
LG-Studio-Apartment-Fridge-Kitchen-White-Stainless-Steel.jpg

Sarah’s advice includes some enlightening pearls of wisdom. “Be cautious of putting a freestanding fridge-freezer at the end of a kitchen in an open-plan space,” she says in one example. “Especially if you’re not linking it to the surrounding scheme. If you do, it may have the appearance of a floating metal box.”

Stuffed Mushrooms with Roasted Tomatoes and Goats Cheese

Perfect as a starter, a lunch, or a weekday supper. Our recipe this week celebrates the colours and taste of autumn. Serves 4.

Ingredients for stuffed mushrooms:

4 large mushrooms

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tsp red onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped

4 oz goat cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste

Ingredients for roasted tomatoes:

12 – 16 oz tomatoes, chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

2 – 3 garlic cloves, finely minced or squished through a garlic press

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5

  • Toss the chopped tomatoes with oil, garlic, salt and pepper and spead on the baking tray, cover with foil and roast for 20 – 25 min.
  • While the tomatoes are roasting, clean the mushrooms by gently wiping the outside of the caps and cut out the stems. With the teaspoon, scrape the gills out until the underside is mostly clean. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet.
  • Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, chopped onions and garlic. Brush the mushroom caps inside and out with the olive oil mixture, sprinkle each cap with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the grill, place mushrooms and grill for 3 – 5 min. The mushrooms will start to release moisture and get juicy. Remove from the grill.
  • Fill with the roasted tomatoes, dot with the goat cheese and sprinkle with fresh dill.
  • Bake for 12 minutes at 190C/170C fan/gas 5
  • Brush with a little extra olive oil

Travel Back In Time To See The Future Of Interior Design!

There are a number of major design trends capturing the headlines at the moment, including the Scandinavian wave, industrial and vintage design and the bohemian shabby chic look.

All of these movements are well represented at PIB Home - a veritable treasure trove of furniture, accessories, light fixtures and outdoor tables and chairs.

The popularity of industrial designs resides in their simplicity and the way in which they wear the ‘distressed’ look so well.  Aesthetically-speaking, the industrial look is about more than just ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ – its beauty comes from its sheer practicality, as displayed by this TV console.

PIB-home also betrays its French origins with this original wine bottle carrier design… 

The Four Space Bottle Carrier

The Four Space Bottle Carrier

The centre of the design world’s gravity is always shifting, but for now, in homeware and furniture at least, it seems to have moved from France to more northern climes. As we can see at http://www.pib-home.co.uk/scandinavian/, this is largely thanks to the Scandinavian genius for creating understated designs that complement rather than dominate your rooms.

This region’s harsh natural environment has been the principal driving force behind the development of a strong culture of hospitality in Scandinavia.  As in so many countries, this revolves around both food and drink.

Here we see how Scandinavian design has taken up the challenge of the northern winter, both in the simple lines and strong colours of these beaker-style cups…

April and the Bear

April and the Bear is an online art and interiors store based in Dublin, Ireland. It is dedicated to finding and selling unique homewares, gloriously eclectic gifts and exclusive art prints

Heart Home mag - Favourite Websites - April and the Bear [1].jpg

The founder (we're assuming it's April!) is a former fashion buyer who was growing weary of the 'throw-away' nature of the fashion world, so she chucked it all in to create an art, interiors and jewellery emporium where each product is carefully selected for its unique aesthetic, quality and ability to bring a smile to the face.

We were smitten at first glance.

All items are sold internationally online.

Gooey Chocolate Brownies

For all those of us who cannot get through the day without a chocolate fix! 

Gooey Chocolate Brownies via Heart Home magazine [2].jpg

Ingredients:

160g plain flour 
1 tsp salt 
2 tbsp cocoa powder 
300g dark chocolate, chopped 
225g unsalted butter, cubed 
1 tsp instant espresso coffee 
300g granulated sugar 
100g light brown sugar 
5 eggs, at room temperature 
2 tsp vanilla extract 

Preheat the oven to 180C / fan 160C degrees

  1. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, salt and cocoa powder. 
  3. Melt the chocolate, butter and instant espresso coffee in a non-stick pan. Turn off the heat and mix in the sugars. Mix until completely combined, then remove and leave it to cool down. 
  4. Add 3 eggs to the chocolate mixture and whisk until combined. Add the remaining eggs and whisk it again. Add the vanilla and stir until combined. Do not over beat the batter at this stage or the brownies will be cakey. 
  5. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the chocolate mixture. With a rubber spatula (not a whisk), carefully fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until just a bit of the flour mixture is visible. 
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the brownie comes out with a few moist crumbs sticking to it. 
  7. Let the brownies cool completely, then lift them out of the baking tin using the parchment paper.
