A NEW DIRECTION
BOLD OR BOHO? WALK THIS WAY
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.
