Get the Look – your perfect Gypsy Bedroom

Monday, 13 January 2014

Turning our vision of our dream bedroom into reality can be a little tricky. Often it can be difficult to find the correct furniture that has the right look and fit and on top of that the right accessories need to be chosen to really complete the look. So if you have a glamorous bedroom on the cards this year then look no further than our Gypsy range.

Our Gypsy range is made from solid Mango hardwood and has a hand-painted wash of softening aqua to give a gentle shabby chic feel to your home. The Gypsy range makes the perfect bedroom furniture as it is hardwearing, attractive and very functional with lots of storage. The Gypsy Small Cabinet is perfect next to your bed. It arrives fully assembled with a top drawer and useful roomy cupboard giving you all the storage you need for books and other bedside bits and bobs.

The Gypsy Petite Six Drawer Chest is the ideal storage solution if floor space is tight. Designed with petite proportions but with practicality firmly in mind, this useful piece has six drawers perfect for clothes, make-up, scarves and jewellery. Accessories with a shabby chic style mirror and this lovely chest of drawers will hold everything you need for getting ready in the morning.

To add some very practical storage, the Gypsy Storage Box is just what you need. Designed with storage in mind this storage box will hold everything from bedding to out of season clothes all kept tucked away safe and sound and out of view. Although very practical this storage box is also attractive with its soft wavy plinth and smooth bevelled lid.

The accessories are what brings the room together and completes the look. Add some extra warmth,  comfort and style to your bed with our Floral Quilt. Made from luxurious velvet printed with a pretty floral pattern, this quilt adds a real touch of luxury to your bedroom. Finish your bed with matching Floral Cushions available in the same three colours as the quilts for a truly stylish finish.

The right lighting can make a room feel cosy and comfortable. Turn the main light off and instead use lamps and strings of lights to create the right atmosphere. The Metal Hour Glass Lamp is the perfect bedside lamp. Unusual and attractive this lamp is decorated with circular iridescent shells and is built around a metal frame with bun feet. To create a soft atmosphere use the Cream Rose String of Lights around your headboard, window or mirror to create soft mood lighting and a pretty decorative feature when not on.

The Gypsy range looks great in a bedroom and in any other room in your home. The complete range has 12 versatile pieces that are designed to sit in any room as a stand-alone piece, with your existing furniture or with other pieces from the Gypsy range.

How to remove ring marks

Tuesday, 7 January 2014

Now the Christmas tree is down and the decorations are back in the loft, our homes may need a little TLC to bring them back to their best. The last few weeks have probably brought extra visitors and guests to your home this means lots of cups of tea and coffee which can lead to the dreaded ring mark! There is no need to fear though. Ring marks can be easily removed from your Myakka furniture with our simple guide, some beeswax polish, wire wool and a soft cloth. We always recommend using coasters but sometimes accidents happen!

 We recommend using Mylands Traditional Wax Polish for keeping your Myakka furniture looking its best. The Antique Mahogany wax is perfect for our Sheesham and Mango ranges as the slight colour in the wax will maintain the colour and finish of the Mallani, Thakat, Chandra, Hathi and Orissa ranges. The clear wax is perfect for the Surin and Khimsar ranges as it will maintain the finish but won’t add to the colour at all. As well as helping to remove ring marks, Mylands Wax is perfect for the general care of your furniture. It feeds the wood and gives your furniture a lovely natural lustre.

If you have any ring marks or any other marks caused by liquid then follow these steps and it should disappear!
  1. Start with a very fine grade wire wool, we recommend a 0000 grade.
  2. Using the wire wool, rub the ring mark and surrounding area down, rubbing the furniture in the same direction as the grain of the wood.
  3. Once the ring mark has been removed, use a soft cloth to apply some Mylands Wax to the area,  rubbing in a circular motion.
  4. Leave for a few minutes to really sink in and then buff off with a soft cloth. This step is really important and this will remove any residue and will give your furniture a lovely lustre.
