A NEW DI­REC­TION

BOLD OR BOHO? WALK THIS WAY

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE - Janita Singh

THE per­fect ad­di­tion for a whim­si­cal and play­ful touch, ar­rows are trend­ing in the in­te­rior space.

Down That Lit­tle Lane’s Tessa White says ar­rows have al­ways guided us down the cor­rect path and it seems they are still point­ing the way in in­te­rior decor.

“In the past they seemed to be monochrome but to­day there are more colours,’’ White says.

Sa­man­tha Bai­ley of Two Girls and A Con­tainer has brought in a range of Mar­quee arrow lights and says ar­rows add a whim­si­cal touch to many kinds of decor.

“In­dus­trial-style ar­rows are so­phis­ti­cated enough to in­clude in an adult’s space, while In­di­anstyle feather-de­tailed ar­rows make a di­vine ad­di­tion to a child’s room,” White says.

“Painted ar­rows on walls and es­pe­cially ar­rows with lights sit hap­pily some­where be­tween in­dus­trial style and boho-glam – depend­ing on the way you use them.

“Use ar­rows to point to your favourite work of art or piece of fur­ni­ture. Hu­mour and de­sign? Heck yes.’’ The eas­i­est way to adopt this trend is to paint ar­rows on cor­ner walls, she says.
