Styling your home with British colonial-style homewares and decor
Here is a quick styling guide to keep in mind when designing your home in the British-colonial style:
- The colour palette
Neutral and white shades are the most favoured choices of colour for a British colonial-style house. These are then contrasted with dark-coloured timbers, cane, mahogany and rattan. Green and blue can also be used for cushions and linens.
- The house’s architecture
Be sure to create a backdrop of whitewashed walls accented with shutters, rattan screens and ceiling fans.
- The placement of the windows and lighting
Frequently use pendant lights made of brass, stained glass, rattan or bamboo. Windows can either be painted or include natural timber shutters. You can also have rattan or bamboo blinds and sheer curtains.
- The decorative elements
Framed botanicals, leather books and indoor tropical plants are all decorative elements used in British colonial-style houses.
When decorating your home in the British colonial style, you can start simple with a few trinkets and statement homewares here and there. For example, our best-selling Antique Silver Monkey Candleholder could be placed on a coffee table or your fireplace mantle alongside books and other eye-catching artifacts.
Similarly, you can display some of your favourite books on a prominent shelf along with a pair of our Leopard Bookends. These are simple but effective ways British colonial-style homewares can be introduced into your home.
Once you’ve gathered enough confidence, go for more significant pieces like one of our Rattan Dining Chairs or a Pineapple Brass Lamp. When these types of furniture are accompanied by classic chalk white walls and some indoor plants, you’ll notice your home morphing into the classic and opulent manor of your dreams.
