Inside Celebrity Homes – Leonardo DiCaprio

Inside Celeb Homes

Leonardo DiCaprio

We all know and love Leo, but do you know what the inside of his new $4.9 million mansion looks like? Nope? Didn’t think so…

Well let’s just say this, we’re jealous.

The home was bought in 2016 by singer/songwriter Moby who gave it a modern makeover. From marble countertops to all-white rooms, this house really is stunning. Obviously, it features an outdoor pool and dining area that are hidden behind thick hedges that surround the property.

However, we don’t care too much about the outside, we’re interested in the interior design!

We are loving the simple chic style going on in Leo’s pad. From the white marble in the kitchen, to the gorgeous all wooden walk-in wardrobes.

 

Now, we’re not saying that we can transform your home to match Mr DiCaprio. However, we do have a few interior styling tips to get you on your way. And don’t worry, it won’t cost you $4.9 million!

The first thing that jumps out to us is the modern nest of tables in the living room. These are becoming more and more popular in interior design. Which is exactly why you need your own.

Luckily for you, we have a range here online at Y1 Furniture. The Casa Nest of 3 Tables in a medium oak ask wood effect finish are inspired by simple yet modern style. With a chunky design, these tables are great to add a bold and stylish feel to the home.

Staying in the lounge, Leo clearly loves to read (or does he just want us to think he does?). The bookshelves around the sitting room in white brighten up the whole room and bring a fresh vibe.

For a more budget version, we have the Essentials Tall White Bookcase. Stunning white finish just like Leos’ and perfect for all your books and DVD’s.We can’t give you a walk in wardrobe I’m afraid, however we do have a vast range of wood effect wardrobes available to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a full bedroom set, or just a wardrobe for your hanging garments, you’re sure to find something you love.

Leo’s walk in wardrobe has a luxurious feel to it with the medium wood and hidden spot lights.

Leo, we salute you and your interior designer.

Flat Pack Furniture

First of all, our favourite, and arguably the most popular in the collection is the Yale TV Cabinet. This media unit offers 2 doors, 2 drawers and 3 sections of open storage space. With metal hinges and drawer runners, the TV stand opens effortlessly.

As well as featuring a cable hole to keep all your cables tidy, this entertainment unit also offers ample storage. Whether you plan to put your DVDs and movies in here, or if you want to put in all those extra cables and remotes we have no idea where they came from. This cabinet has plenty of space for it all.

Next up, we have the Yale Shoe Cabinet with 3 Drawers, again in the dark walnut finish. With 3 pull down drawers, each offering 2 compartments for multiple pairs of shoes. This lavish piece of furniture would fit perfectly in a hallway, living room or bedroom.

The compact design of this means it won’t take up too much space, while still storing plenty of shoes. Meaning they won’t be laying around the house anymore!Furthermore, another piece essential for the bedroom, or living room is the Yale Side Table. This can be used as a bedside table for all your night time bits and bobs. Or as a lamp table beside your sofa in the lounge. Offering storage with 1 ample sized drawer and some open storage space too.

As with the rest of the range, the bedside/lamp table is finished in the dark wood effect and features a cut out handle.

If you’re looking for a modern yet lavish design, this is the one for you.

New Arrivals – The Alford Collection

The Alford Collection

You may have noticed a lot of new stock going live on our website that past couple of weeks. One of the brand new collections in the beautiful Alford Range.

Each piece features a stunning Sonoma oak wood effect finish on the carcus and legs. Then offering either a white or grey finish on the door and drawer fronts, with cut out handles too. The whole design is a modern take on traditional pieces.

The Alford Collection offers desks, TV cabinets, sideboards, bedside tables and coffee tables. Not to mention a freestanding mirror too.We absolutely love the contrasting design of the items with the grey fronts. If you’re wanting to modernise your home interior, this is the way to go. Don’t worry about the grey being too dark because the light Sonoma oak brightens up the room and accents very well.

Similarly however, the pieces with white fronts are just as stylish and bright. These work extremely well for a neutral and simplistic chic interior. Simple and gorgeous!

Flat Pack Furniture

The stand out from this range must be the Alford 2 Door 2 Drawer TV Unit in Sonoma Oak and Grey.This media unit features 2 drawers with white fronts that pull out with cut out handles to reveal ample storage for any bits and bobs you need to store away. Also, it has 2 sliding doors. One with a Sonoma oak wood effect finish, and one in grey. These open to reveal a shelf to store all your DVD’s and CD’s.

Autumn Home Inspirations

Autumn Home Decor

Autumn is well and truly upon us, and after the most glorious Summer, we are sad to wave goodbye to the sun but very excited for all things cosy!

Is anyone else looking forward to decorating for Halloween and making their homes cosier ready for those dark nights?

Our favourite thing to do in Autumn is to change up our home interior design to fit the season. You may want completely new furniture. If so, we have some stunning ranges of flat pack furniture with free delivery available online at Y1 Furniture!

However, if you’re just looking to accessorise, read on…

Here are our 10 top tips for the perfect Autumn home:

  1. Blankets and Throws – These are a necessity in my house. There is not a room in the house without at least one blanket. Okay. I lied, I don’t have any in the bathroom or kitchen. But, you understand the importance, right? Not only are they super cosy and warm for the cold evening to come, you can buy them in everything colour and pattern on earth and they look so gorgeous.
  2. Candles, candles, candles – Candles come in all scents, sizes and beautiful packaging these days. The most amazing scents for Autumn are obviously pumpkin spices, vanilla or berries. So sweet and comforting – The perfect aroma to your Autumn home.
  3. Fairy lights – I have fairy lights up in my home all year round to be honest, but I especially turn them on from Autumn time. Cosy up on the sofa, wrap up in your favourite blanket with your candle burning on the coffee table and have your new pretty fairy lights twinkling around you. Have I, or have I not just described the most perfect Fall evening?!
  4. Hot Chocolate – The world’s most perfect cold weather drink. No debate, this is a fact.
  5. Flowers – You may think flowers are summery and die away afterwards, but I would have to disagree. Some of the prettiest coloured bouquets are found in Autumn. The autumnal orange shades look so lovely in the home.
  6. Wooden Coffee Table – Every Autumn lounge needs a stunning wooden or wood effect coffee table in the centre of the room. Where else would you put your candles and hot chocolate? Wood patterns pair so well with all autumnal colours. We have a great range here at Y1 Furniture, all delivered flat packed with easy home self-assembly instructions.
  7. All the cushions – Just like blankets, you can never have enough cushions. Whether they’re on the sofa, the chair or the bed, they look so cute and are extremely cosy. So many places are now selling lovely cushions with super pretty designs on too.
  8. Wicker Baskets – When you’re not cuddled under those blankets and throws, you’re going to need somewhere to keep them. Roll them up on pop them into a cute wicker basket. This brings your whole living room décor together so nicely. These baskets tend not to be too expensive either but they always look it!
  9. Autumn Wreath – Who said wreaths on the door were just for Christmas? Not me! There are some beautiful autumnal wreaths on the market currently. Some real, some fake. Either way, they look absolutely lovely hung on your front door.
  10. PUMPKINS – Finally, of course it’s pumpkins! It’s Autumn, the season of cosy nights and Halloween. Obviously, you can do the traditional spooky face pumpkin. But, we love getting creative and creating more modern, stylish pumpkins. Get the paint, glue and glitter out and go to town on those pumpkins. You can decorate them to match your interior. Who says they have to stay orange right?!

We hope you’ve loved our Top 10 Tips for Autumn, and it would be great to hear and see if you’ve taken any on board. Tag us in your photos on Instagram and hashtag #Y1Furniture.

New Arrivals – The Pulford Collection

The Pulford Collection

We have a brand new range that has just landed onto the website. The Pulford Collection.

The bed is by far the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom. We all spend a lot of our time there. Here at Y1 Furniture, we understand exactly how important it is that you absolutely love your bed. Not only the comfort of the mattress, but also the aesthetic design of the bed. The Pulford double and king size flat packed beds offer exactly that! They have a simplistic chic design, ideal if you’re looking to transform your bedroom into a modern minimalist haven.

Double wardrobes are essential for the bedroom. The Pulford flat pack 2 door wardrobe also features 2 drawers at the bottom too. As well as a shelf and hanging rail inside. So much space for any clothes that need hanging, folded garments and maybe even your shoes.

The chest of drawers offers 2 large drawers and 2 smaller drawers. Perfect for keeping your folded clothing organised more easily. Drawer chests are also a great way to bring some life into your bedroom. You can use the space on top of the drawers to display a vase of flowers, candles and jewellery trinkets. All great ways to make your house a home and make your bedroom personal to you.

Finally, we have the bedside table. In the same design with the cut-out handle, the bedside unit has 1 drawer, with open storage space underneath too. Similar to the chest of drawers, you can use the table top for a lamp, jewellery dishes or maybe even a photo frame. The drawer has great storage for all the bedside essentials and to keep the room looking tidier.

The whole range works so well together and would easily help to transform your bedroom into a peaceful sanctuary with amazing storage.

Maximising Space

How to maximise space in your home

For those of you living in smaller, cosy homes. Or for anyone with that one room that just never seems to stay tidy. Keep reading as we’re about to give you our best tips of how to maximise the space in your home.

From shoe cabinets to coffee tables, we have an array of flat packed furniture products available to help you keep everything in your house neatly organised, as well as looking great too.

Make the most of your home with storage furniture

Firstly, we have our Shoe Cabinets. Shoe cabinets are the perfect way to save space in any room in the house. In the hallway, the bedroom, the office or even the living room. Our flat pack shoe cabinets are all great designs, so you can have them in any room without ruining your home décor. The Essentials Collection features a range of shoe cabinets in different sizes and colours.

We have the 3 and 4 drawer shoe cabinets in either Sonoma Oak wood effect, or fresh white finishes. Both are super slim line, yet can fit around 50 pairs of shoes in. So, ample storage and an extremely easy way of tidying up those shoes that always seem to be laying around the house.

In contrast, again from the Essentials Collection, we have the shoe storage cabinets with 2 or 3 slatted doors. This style is available in either the Sonoma Oak wood effect or a Dark Oak wood effect. Although these are called shoe cabinets, you don’t necessarily have to put shoes in them! Get creative and store whatever your heart desires. You could even get little baskets to sit on the shelves to take your organisation to the next level.

Aside from shoe cabinets, a fantastic way to make the most of the space you have in your living room is a coffee table with storage. Lucky for you, we have plenty options to choose from.

From the Bay Collection, this coffee table with 3 drawers in an Oak wood effect and white finish is beautiful. It’s modern with a retro feel and perfect to brighten up your lounge. The 3 drawers also provide great storage for anything you usually find laying around and making a mess.On the other hand, if you’re looking for something more lavish looking, we have the Yale coffee table with 2 drawers and 4 shelves in a dark walnut wood effect finish. The dark wood colour and design of this coffee table brings a luxurious and grand feel to the home.We have so many storage furniture options available online now. All flat pack furniture orders have Free UK Delivery too.

Best of luck is organising your home and maximising your space. Make sure to tag us in your photos on Instagram. We’d love to see how you use our furniture to transform your home.
