Influencer Inspo: Megan Ellaby

This year we were delighted to hear style guru Megan Ellaby was a big fan of our products.

This year we were delighted to hear style guru Megan Ellaby was a big fan of our products. With 190k followers on Instagram, many of you will be a fan of her gorgeous photography, quirky style and beautifully unique home.  Her room interiors are most definitely so ‘Megan’ and we absolutely loved seeing how she styled some of her favourite Arighi Bianchi pieces around her house.

With her love of bold colours evident in her posts – it’s no wonder our colourful Crucial Trading Mississippi striped carpet runner caught her attention. She’s not one to shy away from a stand out item, and this runner is sure to turn heads. If there’s one thing we’re known for here at Arighi Bianchi, it’s a statement piece.

So, with a style so enviable, we’ve taken some of our favourite Megan Ellaby outfits and used them as interior design inspiration featuring some of our best-selling products.

Mustard yellow is definitely a staple in Megan’s wardrobe and, lucky for the rest of us, it’s set to be a hot trend for interiors next year too.  The great thing about yellow is it can provide a pop of colour to a wide range of different schemes or themes without looking out of place and it has an instantly cheerful effect on any room.  Megan herself has chosen to introduced yellow into her dark ad dramatic hallway with a super bright handmade radiator cover but personally we’re rather taken with our turmeric coloured plush velvet Danson Large Sofa for our living rooms instead.  The traditional, mid-century style contrasts beautifully with the modern bright colour and it’s not only stylish but incredibly practical too.

Stripes feature heavily in Megan’s wardrobe and it appears if there’s a colourway she goes back to time and time again it’s the monochrome stripe!  Bold, classic and goes with everything, we understand why she’s a fan and we’ve taken a subtler approach to this strong style with our Lifestyle Throw Monochrome.  With a predominately creamy white base, we’ve broken up the starkness with the introduction of a soft grey, make it somewhat a versatile piece that’ll suit different decors.  Made from beautiful soft wool, we can imagine Megan snuggling up under it watching a Christmas movie and editing YouTube videos over the festive period.

We’re obsessed with the colours on this tartan all-in-one and we love how Megan’s paired it with a vintage style denim jacket for this outfit. Reminiscent of its colour palette with slightly darker tones, we think our Scatter Stripe Blue Cushion is great for jazzing up a neutral-based room when scattered over a sofa or positioned on an armchair.

Megan’s slightly retro style includes a lot of 70s shades, and tan and orange always feature heavily on her feed.  A fan of a corduroy and velvet too, she understands the importance of texture and we think our Grafton Ottoman bedframe ticks a few boxes when bringing a dash of Megan’s style into your bedroom décor.  Not only super practical with its hidden storage space, it’s available in a wide range of colours and fabrics, including this lust-worthy velvet ‘Sundance Amber’ shade. Team with some zany patterned bed linen for an ultimate statement.

Megan’s definitely someone whose Instagram we can’t get enough of and we love seeing how she takes her personal style through into her home.  We were over the moon to see our huge LOVE mirror set feature in her hall and we can’t wait to see what other flashes of inspiration she brings us in 2019.
