As Styled By You: Shay

With its elegant almond-grey finish and rustic solid oak tops, the debonair grace of our Shay range brings a refined charm to any room of your home. If you love this collection as much as we do, get inspired by how our customers style Shay in their gorgeous homes.

Hallway Inspiration

Another winning pair comes in the form of our Shay small sideboard and Oslo lamp as they both add a touch of glamour to @mrs_roobottom_home’s hallway. She creates a relaxing corner with our ornately beautiful light.

In a further peek into the rest of @mrs_roobottom_home’s hallway, we can see her home style is like a breath of fresh air. Her grouping of key pieces from the Shay range softens the room with its feminine edge. She styles this range with stately accompaniments such as matte white accessories, dripping chandeliers and that utterly incredible regal mirror.

Your hallway is the first impression guests get of your home and @gemmamaryclare certainly makes an impact with hers, creating a strong regal look with a rich purple feature wall, whilst still keeping the cosy feel with the silver accents and candles that sit atop of her Shay console table

And it’s not just about the hallway as the entryway – have you considered the decor for your upstairs landing? Ruth (@viewof22) utilises a tricky corner of her room with one of our smart storage options – the Shay tallboy. As it’s built up instead of out, it’s perfect for smaller spaces. We love the way she’s angled it for a fresh look that prevents the corner from feeling boxy, plus, using the Stockholm lamp, she demonstrates how brilliant products from across our collections look when paired together.

Dining Room Inspiration

Our Shay dining set very much embodies a traditional, farmhouse-style dining table and chairs thanks to its soft, rounded cornices, rustic oak tops and cross back seating. Yet, industrial-style lighting and a monochrome clock, just like @family_newbuild, can give your dining room the contemporary edge you seek.

Thinking about redesigning your living room? Make sure you’ve ticked all the boxes.

Your dining room is such a hub of activity, so your Shay large dresser should be the organisational hub of your home. Style yours with plenty of personal history: Alex of @oysterandtweed displays precious family photos, interesting statuettes and decorative crockery. A bit of old Hollywood glamour is also established thanks to her fantastic vintage-style searchlight, drawing the eye’s attention to her dresser.

@thehadley_plot57 spruce up their Shay dining set using a fresh white runner across the length of their table. In the middle, a non-obstructive bouquet blooms, creating a cosy mealtime setting, for either dinner parties or just a quiet evening in.

Bedroom Inspiration

The dining room isn’t the only place where the beauty of the Shay range can be brought out with flowers. Rebecca (@magnoliacottagekent) retains the feeling of spring all year round with a seasonal sprig of petals in a quaint vase alongside a calming candle and fresh white linen.

Bring calmness into your home by incorporating flowers and florals. Read our blog for more.

White painted dressing table and matching stool

When getting ready for the day, any make-up expert will tell you it’s best to do so around natural light sources as it provides the most accurate reflection of your face. Kristina of @life_home_puppies has placed her Shay dressing table and matching stool in front of her bedroom window so she has a stunning view of a leafy vista as she uses all the tools and potions she needs to prepare for work or play.

We’ve already mentioned the versatility of products from our ranges and Rebecca (@magnoliacottagekent) is back to demonstrate another way of using our Shay chest of drawers. Perhaps you have a smaller bedroom that can’t afford the luxury of our Shay dressing table. Instead, use the chest of drawers as a dressing table. Its plentiful storage space is enough to keep all your clothes tidy, while its smooth and spacious rustic oak top can be used as a makeshift dressing table with enough room for both a mirror and decoration.

Office Inspiration

For a home sanctuary that’s truly a stress-free space, style your home office with matching furniture from the Shay range. Our Shay computer desk offers plenty of room to work while not cramping your office. The Shay tall bookcase will keep all your books and files in one place while beautifully complementing the desk. @homeatnumber55’s warm lamplight glow is a nice homely touch.
