Amazing New Mirrors

This week here at HomesDirect365 we have been busy adding in some amazing new mirrors to various sections of the website. The quality of finish on these mirrors is truly breath taking which is why we are very eager to share these with you. In the right setting alongside a feature fireplace many of these mirrors could bring the whole room alive.

We have a variety of decorative mirrors amongst the new additions, featuring beautiful ornate carvings and detailing on the frames of the mirrors. They capture perfectly that shabby chic antique French feel that features prominently throughout many of our furniture ranges.

For those more inclined to go for contemporary modern style design, there are also a number of mirrors to tailor to those requirements. Lots of interesting and unique frame designs as seen with the Aura Rectangle Mirror. Be sure to have a browse through these new additions, they really are some high quality pieces.

Also for those who read last week’s newsletter you may be aware we will have a stall at the upcoming Yorkshire Wedding Sale. It will be on Sunday 10th June at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate, so if you are interested in attending and still haven’t purchased your ticket you can do so by visiting www.seetickets.co.uk or or calling 01924 331818. Hopefully we will see some of you there!

Yorkshire Wedding Sale
We are excited to announce this week that HomesDirect365 will be appearing at this years upcoming Yorkshire Wedding Sale on Sunday the 10th of June! The event is a wedding fayre based around a simple concept; 100+ exhibitors all offering discounted products and services for that one day only.

We will have a stall displaying some of our most popular pieces of furniture and accessories. This is one of our first foray’s into fusing our hand carved furniture with the perfect wedding experience, but we see such a strong correlation between the romance and elegance of our key ranges such as Rococo and La Rochelle and the beauty and tradition of creating the perfect wedding day.

The event will be ticket only, and with marketing and promotion featuring all across the North East via Capital FM, Yorkshire Post, Facebook and much more we anticipate this will be a packed event hall come Sunday 10th June.

La Rochelle Black

This week at HomesDirect365 our La Rochelle Black collection is the focus, with a lot of this bedroom range stocked in our warehouse and ready to dispatch. If you’re considering a purchase don’t delay as these popular ranges fly out of the warehouse quickly.

As mentioned before in previous weeks La Rochelle is the original flagship range for us and has been one of the most consistent in popularity. The black gloss finish is a bold choice, it makes a strong statement grabbing your attention and really gives a bedroom unique character.

The La Rochelle collection always ensures elegance and the utmost quality, and as seen in the high resolution images displays smooth curves with intricate ornate design allowing you to achieve that perfect French boudoir feel. Whether you choose to have an entire La Rochelle Black collection or just an individual piece, we guarantee you’re going to be pleased with a completely fresh bedroom appearance.

Be sure to stay tuned next week, as we will have some exciting news about an upcoming appearance at a local wedding fare!

The Perfect Bathroom At HomesDirect365…

Vanity Units

In recent weeks our selection of bathroom vanity units here at HomesDirect365 has expanded to include a lot more variety in the use of colour and design. For those of you out there looking to add class and style to your bathroom with antique French decor, we wanted to accommodate a wide variety of taste with silver, black and white finish available as well as ornate iron units. Not to mention the vast amount of accessories we also have available alongside to accentuate, such as bathroom mirrors, towel racks, and much more.

Choosing a design style for your bathroom can be difficult. Since the ‘age of cleanliness’ when bathrooms first began with the invention of the toilet and bath in 3000BC, there have since been extensive changes in style and function. Roman baths to heated towel rails, the bathroom has seen a lot of variety as an essential part of our day to day living.

To choose a contemporary modern style allows for freedom in decoration choice, allowing you to tailor the overall look of the bathroom with the modern style of the unit. They are often sleek and will match modern appliances and accessories very well. However, to choose antique is valued aesthetically as with care they will last generations and have taken inspiration from hundreds of years of previous design giving unmatched character and history. They are grand and elaborate, hand painted and crafted with elegant wood panels and finished with stunning marble tops and ornate taps that will stand against the rigors of a bathroom environment.

Space is also another consideration, especially for larger families. If you are considering making the switch from a sink to a vanity unit, perhaps consider the double sink variety which allows much more space for children to use. Whichever you decide is best for you, we can guarantee you will be impressed with beautiful selection of vanity units we have available.

Ornate & Beautiful Rococo Collection…

Rococo

A surge in interest for the beautiful and ornate Rococo collection this week here at HomesDirect365 has got us excited to share it with those who may not be familiar with Rococo style.

The actual word Rococo is seen to be a combination of two French words; rocaille meaning stone and coquilles meaning shell. Both feature prominently in classic Rococo design alongside motifs inspired by music, nature and love. As Baroque artists in the 18th century started to rely less on symmetry and became more ornate and playful, this freedom and incorporation of nature and rocaille and coquilles helped to create this distinct Rococo style we know today.

In this period when the Baroque artists were beginning to fully discover the great creativity that can come from artistic freedoms, not sticking to any preconceived rules that everything must be symmetrical, being experimental and florid, creating entire rooms as works of art not just one piece…It led to what many consider to be the Golden Age of French furniture. The Rococo style was frivolous and decadent and the first of its kind.

These qualities and history resonate still hundreds of years later, this is not a passing trend but a well established style. Get yourself a piece of history and indulge yourself with the Rococo collection!
