Christmas Card Challenge

Set Visions’ latest styling challenge was a festive treat from Ideal Standard UK. Having worked closely with them on several large interior CGI projects recently, we were asked if we would style the Armitage factory for this annual Christmas card. The brief was a Nordic theme but with the classic pointy ears and red boots!

One of our intrepid Interior Stylist spent the morning turning the industrial factory into a winter wonderland, with fairy lights, stars, and a twinkle in his eye. This has certainly got us into the holiday spirit and with Christmas Jumper Day looming we’re itching to take some Elfies!

ChristmasBlog Dog cropped (RT)

Set Visions would like to wish you all an extremely Merry Christmas and cheers to a fantastic New Year. We couldn’t resist using Huey, our studio mascot, as the face of this year’s Christmas card in his very own CGI snow globe.

We are hugely excited for 2017. The next instalment of our Interior Trend Video Blog will kick us off in January, followed by the launch last of our Set Visions websites, completing our rebrand.

Our offices will be closing on Friday 23rd of December with the full team returning on Tuesday 3rd of January 2017. To keep update with all the news and goings on at HQ simply add your details to our mailing list. We’re now off to embrace the Hygge lifestyle- Although, we must remember; if we make CGI mince pies, we can’t eat them!

‘Hygge’ Home: the Danish art of living cosily

Main image

As the nation falls in love with the Danish ‘Hygge’ home movement - if you have not heard of it yet well you will now - after all, Denmark was voted one of the happiest places to live, and with this philosophy in life we totally agree.

In essence ‘Hygge’ means creating a cosy, homely, warm atmosphere whilst enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. Sit back and take in our trending guide whilst enjoying a warming cup of tea, the perfect Scandinavian way.

Layering texturesMiddle image

As the nights close in for these wintry months it’s time to cozy up in thick, cable knit throws, add plenty of rustic charm with baskets to store and accessorize - perfect for the cozy, rustic look.

Plenty of candles should adorn your ‘Hygge’ home, creating a warm friendly feel. Lanterns are perfect, style them up in sizes to create depth. Mix woods and chromes to get a modern/rustic feel.

Social styleBottom image

The living room is a social space that welcomes the family and friends in for an evening of relaxation and quality times. It’s key to echo that friendly feel with layered up cushions and throws for guests to snuggle up on the sofa. Create a welcoming space with scented candles and a good selection of coffee table books.

After an evening spent enjoying simple life pleasures in your beautiful home, why not take a calming retreat to your bedroom? Making this space ease you in to rest with its deep atmospheric walls and subtle choice in lighting will create a perfect space to snuggle up and read a book.

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics naturemiddle

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.


Exposing and unifying the lookbottom

The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.

Innovative Product and Aesthetic Imagery with Camira

How do you combine style with substance? We recently worked with Camira on the concept launch of an innovative new fabric collection.

The series of commissioned shots range from conceptual location work, stylized studio photography through to creative product shots. Nina, our Creative Studio Stylist consulted directly with Camira to understand the journey and essence of the fabric, directing this through creative concept photography. This recent project features Rivet-a pioneering product that recycles waste plastic PET bottles to produce yarn string that is 100% REPREVE fibre.

Rivet-Stylised-V1 (RT)

This project is a prime example of the trend consultancy service and innovative aesthetic imagery our Creative Photography team produces. From location shoots to our custom-built set designs each step of your visual journey has thought and devotion behind it.

The green scene VLOG

Welcome to our first Trend VLOG! Our lovely Head Photographic Stylist Nina chats through all things green. Green is one of the big colour contenders over the last few seasons, from vibrant flashes to deep and moody hues.
Over the past year greens have been interpreted through the Botanical and Tropical Jungle trends, which have strongly rooted their way across interior and homeware design, fusing from contemporary to classic styling.
