Inside knowledge

The team at Uneeka share their two top tips for a home that’s on trend and warm, whatever the season.

Founded by Jodi Skelton in 2004 in a small space on Lemon Street, Truro, Uneeka has grown considerably over the last 13 years, now showcasing a huge range of furniture pieces and lifestyle accessories over two stores! The knowledgeable team aims to help you find ethical and stylish pieces to complement your home. Whether it’s your forever sofa or the perfect throw for a Valentine’s breakfast in bed, they promise to find something that will work for you. We recently caught up with the Uneeka team, and asked what they recommend to create a home that will remain warm, inviting and on trend.

Layer up with texture

“2017 is all about mixing patterns and textures to create depth, which is great news for those who need a home that’s as practical as it is beautiful. Blankets and throws will keep you warm when the nights are cold and double up as picnic blankets in the summer months! This year, more is definitely more and you can add extra texture with knitted cushions; go bold – and on trend  – with a rich blue, or choose more muted tones to complement your existing colour scheme.”

Be innovative with colour

“As the stylists among you will know, the colour of 2017 is ‘greenery’. Pantone’s Colour of the Year will be appearing in paint tins and on wallpaper, countrywide, but at Uneeka, we like to find more innovative ways to work a little greenery into our homes. Saris and fabric can be hung from the wall for a more temporary and stylish take on the trend and you can pair them with filament bulbs for a warm glow at any time of year. Or, if you’re worried that wall hangings might make a small room seem dark, a mirror hung opposite a window will reflect light, making your space seem even bigger!” So, with a professional team that’s happy to help find that unique style for your home, where else but Uneeka?
