From Furniture to Finishing Touches: Everything You Need to Know
If there’s anyone’s advice we trust, it’s Laura Ashley’s! Here’s how to revamp your conservatory in their inimitable style.
Laura Ashley are one of the most iconic names in the interior design industry. Their quintessentially British designs have been a staple in our homes for many years. So when they shared some tips on how to revamp a conservatory, well, we couldn’t help but take notice. From blinds to accessories, a little bit of Laura Ashley can help turn your conservatory into the most beautiful and stylish room in your home.
A conservatory is a brilliant addition to any home. They can, however, be difficult to style – requiring a certain flair for design and a good imagination. Laura Ashley’s advice? Well, first of all, invest in some good blinds. They’ll keep the room cool in the summer and offer a little bit of insulation in the winter. Laura Ashley recommend Thomas Sanderson blinds, who have their very own collection of blinds printed with, you’ve guessed it, Laura Ashley designs! Whether you prefer muted, neutral shades or want to add a pop of colour to your room, there will be a blind that’s just right for you.
When it comes to furniture, Laura Ashley have another favourite company – Daro. The brands collaborated with each other to design some rattan furniture featuring cushions in beautiful Laura Ashley prints. It’s a partnership that’s proved really successful, and is still going strong. Rattan furniture has long been a popular choice for conservatories, thanks to it being low maintenance, light weight and resistant to sun damage. We’re big fans of the Laura Ashley and Daro range, and could certainly see any of the pieces in one of our conservatories. Our favourite? We’re going to have to say the Wilton Sofa (pictured above). It’s stylish, modern, and comfortable and will look great paired with any kind of décor.
Once you have got the blinds and furniture sorted, it’s time to think about those all-important finishing touches. Their famous textiles aside, Laura Ashley are also known for their extensive range of home accessories.
Pretty china vases will add a vintage vibe to your conservatory, while some of their white porcelain figurines will help you to achieve a more modern look. Like to sit down with a cup of tea and watch the world go by? Then invest in some pretty cups to keep out on display. Right now, mismatched crockery is very in, so don’t worry about them matching! At Laura Ashley, you’ll find mugs with tartan, floral and even Christmas designs – perfect if you’re going for that eclectic theme.

Gone are the days when Laura Ashley was viewed as old fashioned, steeped in chintz and stuck in the past. Since their revival in the early 2010’s, they feature regularly on the pages of interior design magazines, and their products are seen on television shows like The X Factor. So if you want to add a little star power to your conservatory, then you’re heading in the right direction!
