Vintage Inspiration coming soon

Vintage Cycle

Get ready for our week of Vintage Inspiration!

Saturday 20th July sees the start of our week of Vintage Inspiration. Why not pop in for a glass of Pimms and a browse?

Throughout the week we’ll be featuring some distinctive and attractive one off vintage pieces of furniture, lanterns, travelling trunks, lamps, campaign chests, mirrors and much more….

During the day on the 20th we’ll be demonstrating how to customise a standard lamp.

Add a new shade to a reclaimed or upcycled lampbase and you have endless possibilities!


We’ll also be showing you how easy it is to make a simple drum shade to your own specification.

Watch this space for more ideas and information coming soon!

Coastal Living Inspiration

Here at Room to Inspire we’re always happy to share design ideas with our customers.

Here’s one we copied from a little beach restaurant we visited last week in Santa Maria, Calabria!

That  little strip of blue sand just lends a little more interest to a basic design and reminds us of lazy days gazing at Stromboli across the deep blue Med, and warm al fresco evenings, indulging in wonderful Italian cuisine!




Voyage Wall Art books arrive at Room to Inspire

Voyage Wall Art

We’re really excited about the arrival of our new Wall Art books from Voyage.

Voyage sell their brand new range of wallpaper, described as Wall Art, by the metre – like fabrics. The idea is that you only buy as much as you actually need.

As well as looking great on the wall, the designs are so beautiful you could actually create a highly effective feature by framing just a section.

Why not pop along to Room to Inspire to browse through the whole collection? Or if you’d prefer, you can view the full range from the Storybook Wall Art and Country Wall Art collections on the Voyage website and then order through Room to Inspire either by popping into our shop or giving us a call on 01543 264 390.

Where to Park in Lichfield to Visit Room To Inspire.

If you’re local to Lichfield, you’ve probably noticed we’re having a bit of car park trouble!

Yes, the small car park immediately opposite Room to Inspire is now closed – but the rest of Friary Inner is still open.

There are a number of other car parks nearby. Round the corner in Sandford Street, there is a long stay car park, and we are only a short walk from the Bird Street short stay car park. At the weekends there should also be plenty of space at the college. Continue reading
