For the month of June, Our Home takes on a dramatic, stark, and distinctive approach to interior styling and furniture vignettes. This June, the masculine appeal of leather is given a unique pairing – with blue velvet, to evoke a one-of-a-kind combination that is cosmopolitan, urban, posh, and uniquely in line with that creative panache that Our Home is known for.  Be inspired and be amazed at settings that provide ideas on alternative ways of combining cosmopolitan blue and urban black.



As one enters, a black leather, queen-sized, tufted, and stitched bed frame and headboard beckons. The style is subtle, the approach is bold styled with blue and white linens and sheets making it stand out. The black and blue combination starts here and is echoed in the rest of the store’s settings. On one side, a black leather-clad night table provides a functional storage piece while on the other side, a sculptural round wooden accent table makes for an asymmetrical balance. Both tables though, don identical white table lamps in porcelain with crème shades. A fully upholstered accent chair to one side of the bed provides a lounging element while at the foot of the bed, an ottoman in white tufted leather elicits a startling contrast. A white chest of drawers to one side presents a contrast, highlighting a silver frame large-scale mirror and some well-selected tabletop accessories.



The black leather/blue velvet combination continues to the living room setting. A three-seater, two-seater living room ensemble in cobalt blue velvet upholstery take center stage and is accentuated with a black, leather swivel chair used as accent. A matching set of center, side, and console tables in black matte wood finish completes the look while underfoot, an abstract pattern of blues, browns, blacks, and whites are found in the area rug, anchoring the setting. Accessories and accents are curated specially to complement the blue and black theme; white ceramic and porcelain vases containing white blooms, silver sculptures, and black wrought iron accouterments are chosen specifically to tie in with the look. An oversized black tufted ottoman is added to one side for added seating. Above, a pair of matching silver crystal chandeliers illuminates the setting and everything is framed against the backdrop of massive postmodern arches.



Four blue velvet, medium-back dining chairs in a contemporary and urban style surround a matte black wooden dining table for the dining room vignette. The matte surface of the table presents a textural contrast against the luxurious feel and appeal of the upholstery of the dining chairs. An area rug with abstract patterns and designs adds a soft feel to the setting while at the same time echoing the color palette. A long but low chandelier bedecked with crystals proportionally illuminates the length of the table’s surface to highlight a trio of black wrought iron candelabras and a large vase of white orchids. On both sides of the dining vignette, a white chest of drawers and a black etagere are flanked with the same postmodern black arches for a consistent and cohesive feel. Carefully selected topiaries, foliage, and trees are distributed all throughout in black iron pedestals and containers to reflect an airy and outdoor feel.


At Our Home, the month of June provides inspirational ideas and unique combinations of furniture and accessories to create a little drama in the home. The pairing of blue and black, leather and velvet prove to be well-suited pairings when eliciting interiors with an ambiance that spells luxury, the height of style, functionality, and a sense of cosmopolitan charm.
