Take a peek at five things we’ve learned from the Turner Pocock team about the ingredients needed for the perfect interiors alchemy.

1. Metallics accents work anywhere

Any room can benefit from a dash of understated glamour, so don’t be afraid to use metallic accents in all types of space. This stylish brass wall light brings an otherwise rustic farmhouse-style bedroom to life, and also proves it’s a fabulous and warm alternative to using chrome with grey.

2. Be playful

Your home should make you happy and is a reflection of your character, so don’t be afraid to experiment and be bold with decor and print choices. A cheekybut tasteful – piece of art shows a sense of humour and a vista ‘to make you smile’, says Turner Pocock.

3. Embrace the dark side

Deep blues are ‘perfect in the grey London light’, says Turner Pocock. Don’t be afraid to go bold on your cabinetry to create a timeless kitchen. Pair with light walls, brightpendants and marbles worktops for a sleek look that will last for years.

4. Mix jewel tones

Whoever decided ‘blue and green should never be seen’ obviously never met Turner Pocock. Rich greens and blues actually complement each other perfectly, and beautiful walls in Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke work wonders with velvet blue chairs in this elegant dining room. Finish with geometric lighting and those metallic accents for extra little touches of glamour.

5. Children’s rooms can be stylish too

Gone are the days when children’s rooms seemingly suffered a style bypass. Turner Pocock shows that you can create a room for kids that’s so chic it would also work for adults. This grey and red colourway makes this twin room gender-neutral, the printed cushions add interest and the gorgeous animal prints are sweet yet super-stylish.
