If you love the style and simplicity of our Shay and St Ives collections, you’ll want to explore our new painted Arlette range. Encompassing the classic design of our popular ranges with the long-lasting quality that you associate with Oak Furnitureland, this painted collection is ideal for those whose tastes are rooted in the traditional but love the freshness and vigour of contemporary design. If you’re in need of inspiration on how to style your painted furniture then take a look at our decor guide.
Styling Painted Furniture in Your Living Room
White reflects more natural light around a room, which makes it perfect if you prefer dark or bold coloured walls. Choose a couple of key products from the Arlette range to create eye-catching centrepieces in your living room such as the TV unit or the small sideboard. The clean colouring of the range becomes a stand-out piece, popping against its colourful backdrop.
Alternatively, create a completely cohesive look and utilise the entire range for your living room space. From the bookcase to the coffee table, let the Arlette collection accentuate all corners of your living room. And if you’re worried about having enough space – white furniture lends itself well to smaller areas and there’s plenty of storage space to hide away children’s toys or clutter.
Incorporating Painted Furniture into your Colour Scheme
White, neutrals and soft greys are a great base colour for your home. They can help cool and calm a space in summer or bring warmth and brightness in winter. The mid-tone grey of the Arlette range means it’s adaptable and looks perfect with any colour scheme – as demonstrated in our customer Tina’s dreamy home. She shared her beautiful styling of our Arlette large sideboard via her Instagram @pasteldreamat14 and we love the candy coloured hues of her living room design, showcasing the versatility of the collection.
Adding Painted Furniture To Your Bedroom
The neutrality of the Arlette range also means it looks brilliant in your bedroom – we adore how the matching pieces bring everything together. This is an opportunity to complement the pieces with similar shading incorporated into your wall colour and bed linens; creams and dusky pinks and greys are a winning combination.
Everything from the Arlette bedroom is obviously stylish yet practical – the bed is built with comfort at the forefront of its design and the chest of drawers and double wardrobe provide ample storage options for all of your organising needs.
Using Painted Furniture In Your Dining Room
Speaking of organisation, any busy home needs stylish storage solutions, especially in places where you may welcome guests. Our Arlette large dresser is the perfect place to store away your crockery and cutlery in your dining room. Not only is it useful, but its spacious surface area means you have plenty of room to display your cookbooks and treasured ornaments. For those who are strapped for space, using a lighter colour scheme in your kitchen will allow much more light to flood in and reflect off the walls, giving the illusion of a larger kitchen space.
As if you need an excuse for a celebration, our Arlette dining table and chairs give you all the options. Not only are they distinctive in design, but the table is also extendable, which is perfect if you thrive on being the host with the most. You can have the total flexibility of welcoming extra guests to dinner with the opportunity to impress not just with your food, but with your eye for interior design, too.
Painted Furniture In Your Home Office
A beautiful working environment is bound to work wonders for your productivity, and the best place to start is investing in the Arlette computer desk. Large and spacious, it gives you enough countertop room to work while providing you with nifty places to hide away wires and files. Pair with the stool to complete the look.
We hope you’re feeling inspired to take some of these styling ideas back home with you. Have you got pieces from our Arlette collection in your home? We’d love to see how you style them – let us know using the hashtag #OakFurnitureland on Instagram!
