Greenery Is The Pantone Colour Of The Year For 2017

Pantone has announced their colour of the yearGreenery. In years past we've had Rose Quartz and Serenity for 2016, Marsala for 2015 and Radiant Orchid for 2014.  The last three years have focused on a similar set of colours, while this year is a major shift towards a vibrant and revitalizing green. 

When it comes to choosing the color of the year, Pantone has explained that the process works like this. "The process, which takes about nine months, is highly subjective, as Pantone admits, and more about instinct than science. Essentially, the team fans out across the globe and explores industries, to collect what they refer to as “proof points” — from car shows, on the runways, in decorator showcases and so on. At a certain stage they begin to notice meaningful overlap and narrow down the choices. Then one shade achieves critical mass." 
Pantone describes Greenery as "a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

Pantone has already paired Greenery with 10 different palettes that are sure to appeal to designers and architects, no matter what mood they choose to evoke. Whether you're still in love with Rose Quartz and Serenity from last year, or want something vibrant, such as their Moody Blooms palette, there is something for every taste. This is truly a versatile color. 

We don't advise painting all of your walls in this colour, however, as it would be a bit overwhelming. Use the colour instead as a focal point to draw the attention, like the front door, to create a welcoming and invigorating feeling. “The Pantone green is a darker lime, bringing nature into the home and getting us to think about the beauty of gardens and lush forests,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of colour and creative service at Behr Paints.

There are two things to keep in mind when working with Greenery. 

Keep the Mood in Mind.
This is a very vibrant and active colour. It's best suited to a room that sees a lot of activity, rather than somewhere to sleep or relax. 

Remember the Lighting
For a room that doesn't get much natural light, the colour will add a sense of energy. However, for rooms that do get plenty of sunlight, the changing light throughout the day will affect how you see and think of the colour. It's best to paint large sections of the wall first, and observe it over a week or so, before committing to painting. 

At LWC, we can't wait to start working with this colour and continue bringing the latest and greatest trends to the Australian furnishing industry.

Impressive Results When You Use Experienced Furniture Hires

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. The same can be said for first impressions. That is why it is so important for property developers, property management companies, and apartment construction businesses to ensure the visual result of their work is impressive. The visual is what people remember and impacts them more than what they read or hear about your property. Securing a designer to assist you with furnishing set-ups yields great results. Whether you have a 1 bedroom apartment or high-rise serviced apartment, there is no job too big or small for Lindsay Wilson. Lindsay Wilson offers a high level of experience when you use them for your furnishing needs. Here are 3 reason experienced designers benefit your properties.

Experienced professionals have a keen eye for the “right” look.

With over 126 years combined service in the industry of interior designing, we are experienced at developing just the right look to impress your clients. Whether you need old charm or modern style, we fit the furniture and surrounding decor to match and create the atmosphere you desire.

Experienced professionals complete the job in a timely manner.

Experience pays off in other ways, too, such as moving quickly to deliver the completed job. With a large selection of furniture already on hand and a global supply chain, Lindsay Wilson is able to put together a fantastic design in a short span of time.

Experienced professionals have the ability to work aesthetically within a given space.

With the years of practice comes skill at knowing just how to arrange the furniture and décor to make it most appealing.  Another challenge some properties face is space deficits. However, with the proper design and furniture layout, smaller units look larger than they actually are. This helps with sales because the consumer's visual impression is usually more relevant than the actual dimensions they’ve read.
At Lindsay Wilson, we take the big and small jobs and dedicate our experienced team to bringing you the best in interior design. Contact us today to find out more information!

Making A Good First Impression Begins On The Exterior Of Your Home

Most home owners are aware of the phrase, "You only have one chance to make a good first impression <> ." This is especially true for those wishing to sell their homes in the Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane areas. In a competitive selling market making sure your home appears as desirable as possible will increase the likelihood that you will sell quickly and maximize profit.

1. The importance of curb appeal.

The curb appeal of your home will affect the amount of prospective buyers who will want to view the inside and eventually make an offer. Understanding that a messy or ill-maintained home exterior is a powerful deterrent capable of sending buyers away in a hurry ought to encourage you to give the outside of your home the TLC it deserves.

2. Landscaping matters.

When shrubs, trees, and lawns are well manicured and neatly trimmed they can add depth and texture to your front yard. Adding colorful flowerbeds and planters will also beckon buyers inside, putting forth a clean, cheery vibe free of clutter so the home is accented by your landscaping and not overwhelmed by it.

3. Paint job quality is essential.

Chipped and scratched paint has a way of making a house look older and more in need of maintenance which is not a desirable condition for most buyers. The amount of work required to make the house move-in ready is an important factor people take into consideration before making an offer on a home. Repairing any damaged paint beforehand is an easy way to beautify your home's exterior for resale.

4. Don't neglect exterior illumination.

Cleaning sources of exterior illumination is a maintenance technique many overlook. Arriving at a home with porch sconces covered with spider webs, bodies of moths or other insects, or burnt-out lightbulbs can send your prospective buyers running for the hills.

5. Create an inviting front entry.

The warmth and livability of a home can be determined by a stylish front entry. Keep it simple, functional, and inviting to inspire buyers to imagine their own furnishings and daily living rituals taking place there.

Don't leave the first impression your home presents up to chance. Engaging the assistance of a professional is highly advisable to ensure that your home represents high aesthetic quality and pride of ownership upon a prospective buyer's first viewing. To achieve peace of mind and increase your likelihood that your home stands out in the Australian real estate market, contact us <>  today.

Are You a Struggling Student Needing More Space? Five Comfort and Space-saving Ideas on a Student Budget

Are you a struggling student needing more space? Take this simple test and find out. Can you identify the following piece of furniture? It serves as your study area, clothes hamper, dining table and then late at night, you clean off a space and go to sleep? If your answer was a bed, then you might need a little more space!
For students living in Sydney, Wollongong, Bathurst, Armidale, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Melbourne and other university towns across Australia, tiny spaces, one bedroom apartments and small budgets often mean a less than ideal environment for studies. However, with a few organizational additions and help from the professionals at Lindsay Wilson Concepts, you do not have to continue living in cramped discomfort.

Here are five simple, comfort enhancing and space-saving ideas you can implement today, even on a student budget.
1. Go for the Rack: Whether you are a guy or a girl, you probably have more shoes than you have space for in your college living area. Buy a shoe rack (or two) and stack your shoes neatly in the closet and get them out of your way. BONUS: Purchase one shoe rack for the floor and one to hang on the door. The one on the floor can probably handle the shoes and the one on the door can be utilized for hanging up belts or t-shirts or even jewelry.
2. Double-up: Purchasing double hangars is a great space-saving plan. Double hangars allow you to maximize the vertical space in your closet, hanging up two articles of clothing in the space of one!
3. Purchase some compact, yet comfortable furniture. Lindsay Wilson Concepts offers chairs and other furnishings that are functional and fun, comfortable and compact. They can also help you plan space maximizing comfort.
4. Fold, fold, fold: Buy a folding laundry hamper; it's there when you need it and not when you don't!
5. Go higher! Under bed storage can be a treasure or a trap. Don't just stuff your stuff under there -- organize! Purchase some lifts or risers for your bed and a few plastic or fabric bins and use the space to store your seasonal clothes and shoes, or other household items that you don't use every day.

Lindsay Wilson Concepts believe students need a creative, diverse, rich and supportive environment to excel at their studies. We are committed to providing this environment and being the leaders in student accommodation furniture, furnishings and fitout in Australia.

Dealing With Exams- Find Your Happy Place

Exam season is the most taxing time for any student. Hours of studying and sleepless nights quickly build up and can become unhealthy. In order to cope with exam stress, students need a relaxing and calming environment to wind down and recentre themselves.

In New South Wales and Australia, exams loom just around the corner and the need for relaxing places for students grows ever stronger. In order to cope with the anxiety that comes with exams, students need a "happy place". Lindsay Wilson Concepts is committed to working with students to accommodate the students' needs and provide an appropriate environment. 

To excel at their studies and meet their basic needs, it is imperative for students to be well-rested. A comfortable bed will ensure a good night's rest and a fresh mind in the morning. Students also need an area to focus on their studying and so a desk with plenty of storage room would be needed. For relaxation, a comfortable armchair or sofa will give students a great place to rest physically and mentally. Students need enough power stations for their technology, plenty of storage places for their books and belongings, and enough space to add their own touches to their comfort area. Even after all of the exams have been taken, students can have a soothing place of their own to sit back and relax from all of their hard work. 

Lindsay Wilson Concepts understands how important it is for students to have a safe and secure place to unwind and de-stress. We look forward to providing furnishings and furniture to accommodate the students of Australia.
