Owl and the Pussycat, Galle

 

Decorate your home with bright colours and calico prints with inspiration from Owl and the Pussycat, Galle

Inspired by Edward Lear’s poem of the same name, Owl and the Pussycat is a quirky boutique hotel in Galle, Sri Lanka.

While the bedrooms have a modern look, they also feature handcrafted details, wood and wicker furniture and cool calico prints.

To emulate the look in your bedroom, introduce handcrafted cushions, brightly coloured rugs and even a few animal shaped pillows.

Using different shades of a colour in different rooms can make a space seem cohesive. For example, your living room can be painted in calming mint green while the bedroom can have a moss green shade.

Floral arrangements can add freshness and fragrance to any room. Don’t limit these to just the living room – introduce them in the kitchen and bathroom as well.

If you have a large balcony or patio, ensure you have plenty of comfortable seating options, ranging from swings and chairs to small cushioned stools. Recreate a balcony-like scene with French windows by placing bean bags or floor cushions near it. You can even place a wicker swing chair in a corner to create a cosy reading nook.
