Are you sick of the same old neutral toned décor in your home? Looking to get a little bit of colour in your life? When investing in quality furniture we often want to play it safe and stick to the neutral tones but with some simple inexpensive pieces you can breath a new life into your home.

Accent Furniture 

A bold coloured accent chair is our favourite solution to make a real statement in a room. Choose a stand alone colour like the bold yellow in the image below to create a monochromatic colour scheme or use your accent chair to craft a complete colour palette for your room like the stunning teal arm chair.

   

Check out our range of accent furniture including our coloured velvet Scoop Back Chairs and coloured french inspired furniture in our Belle Range.

 

Artwork

With canvas art now readily available in décor stores and online, adding a splash of colour to your walls could not be easier. With nothing more than some picture hooks and a hammer you can transform a room. Abstract art is a simple way to add vibrant colours to a neutrals space, and with all shapes and sizes available you are sure to find something the perfect size for your space

    

 

Decor and Styling

And last but not least the most versatile and simplest option to add colour and style to your room is through décor and styling pieces. Available in abundance decor pieces can include cushions, throws, books, vases, candles, clocks and many other bits and pieces (just think of the interior section of your local Kmart!). Choose a single colour or put together a palette of your favourites to create just the style you are looking for.

At a relatively in expensive price you can afford to trial different colours to see which ones work in your space and which ones don't. And as colours and styles come in and out of fashion or you decide you need a refresh, just swap out a few bits and pieces and you have a whole new room.

 

   

     We hope you love these tip for adding some colour and style to your home.

When Magnolia Studios, a Gold Coast wedding planner and stylist, stumbled upon our range of authentic French furniture they just had to have it for this stunning styled bridal shoot.

Featuring our 1100 wide Parisienne Dining table and Motif chairs setting, complimented by our Belle writing desk and bedside table, styled in an entirely unique way, this set the scene for a luxurious and romantic elopement reception.

Set amongst the Olive Groves of Sarabah Estate Winery in the Gold Coast hinterland the shoot brought together a group of both South East Queensland and Australian wide professionals.

We absolutely loved the opportunity to work on such a fantastic project and seeing our furniture in such a unique and beautiful setting. Have you ever used our furniture in a unique and interesting way? Make sure to send us some pictures of your set up.

Do you know that it is recommended that all furniture that can be climbed on or that is greater than 600 in height should be fixed to the wall?? I am sure for many this is a shock. How many of us have buffets, and storage units, tall boys and display shelves around our homes and we never think twice about the danger these pieces present to our families.

 

According to the ACCC hundreds of serious injuries and two deaths each year are attributed to toppling furniture and televisions. Everyone with children knows how accidents can happen in the blink of an eye but with some simple steps you can take action and ensure your home is safe from toppling furniture and ensure your family and friends remain safe at all times within your home.

 

Secure your furniture

Here at Brisbane Furniture your safety is our highest priority, therefore all of our storage units come complete with wall anchor kits to fix your furniture to the wall. With a few different variations available wall anchor kits generally consist of two mounting plates, one fixed to the rear of the furniture and the other fixed to the wall behind, the plates are then joined but a strap (similar to a zip tie) and tightened to ensure your furniture is safely fixed to the wall and prevent toppling.

If you already own furniture that does not have a mounting kit, these can be purchased from Bunnings, Target, Big W or all baby shops, or for a limited time we have 100 free kits to give away! So contact us HERE and ask for a kit and we will pop one in the mail to you.

 

Secure your TV

As well as securing your furniture it is also essential to secure your TV to the wall. TV’s often come with a mounting point on the rear of the screen, with a similar style mounting kit available consisting of the wall mount plate and strap to secure the screen back to the wall. Securing TV screens is particularly important if the screen is placed on top of a tall unit such as a tall boy.

 

Store heavy things at low height

Another simple tip to ensure safety in your home is to ensure anything heavy is stored at low heights. As well as helping to lower the centre of gravity of your furniture to reduce the chance of tipping it also means that heavy items can not be wobbled/shaken off high shelves and land on children below.

 

Ensure low drawers can not be used as ladder

If your little one is a bit of a climber it is also important to ensure all low level drawers are fixed closed. Often the allure of a toy placed on top of chest of drawers can prove too much and it is easy to pull out low level drawers to create your own ladder. This can pose a significant risk. With the drawers pulled out a furniture pieces centre of gravity has already shifted to a forward position. With the added weight of a child climbing on the drawers the risk of toppling is greatly increased. We therefore recommend increased safety measure such as drawer lock or catches (also available from Bunnings, Target, Big W or baby shops) to the lower drawers of storage units.

 

As you can see, with a few simple steps you can ensure your home is safe and sound and prevent any accidental injuries from toppling furniture. And don’t forget if you need a wall anchor kit for your furniture then don’t hesitate to contact us HERE for one of our free kits.

Are your kids back in the swing of the school year and you’ve found yourself needing some new desk furniture at home due to the increased homework load? Here are some helpful hints on finding the best study and desk furniture for your home.

With so much schooling now going ‘computer based’ the traditional study desk has undergone a bit of a transformation. With less need for drawers and shelves to store pens, paper, books and the like, the traditional study desk is looking slicker than ever. With laptops and tablets being the device of choice for Brisbane schools, a small desk could be all you need.

The portable nature of laptops and tablets means study can now be performed in any room of the house, so a small nook can be transformed into a study space with a simple and stylish study desk.

For a shared study desk in a living room environment, our Linear Desk is the perfect compliment to a modern living setting with a small storage compartment and raised shelf for a lamp or stationary, it provides ample workspace in a compact contemporary unit. For a more traditional style home our Plantation Desk with 3 drawers provides a robust alternative.

For a bedroom study space where some long term storage of books and personal items would be ideal then a desk and shelving unit combination is a great and versatile option. With a wide range of sizes and styles available, from traditional bookcases to open shelving units you can select a size to suit your space and requirements. Team this up with a desk with drawers and you have a flexible configuration that can be rearranged to create a new bedroom study each year.

To see all of Brisbane Furniture's desk and study storage options head to our 'Home Office' page.
