Adding a Foxy Flavour to Your New Build? Here's How...

There is something especially exciting about the prospect and opportunity that the blank canvas of a new home offers.

Stepping over that threshold and taking in all that the home could be is a momentous occasion, as is selecting and sourcing the pots of paint, fabric swatches, and rolls of wallpaper that give life to your home.

Adding soul to the home comes from everywhere and can be as easy as the positioning of furniture and layout of treasured possessions, creating that unique flow of a room. Similarly, layering up styles and themes that speak to your personality can take seemingly plain spaces and transform them into cosy reading nooks, slick hallways, and even enigmatic understairs loos. We promise!

When decorating, Mr Fox plays effortlessly into many an interior scheme. His quirky charm yet cool Scandi aesthetic makes for a balance of personality and design prowess that moves from room to room.

Mr Fox is an icon for a reason; slick, low profile and neatly drawn, he brings the good vibes home. His presence elevates any room and lifts the mood. That easy-going nature, tonal colours with pops and bursts of vibrancy, and overall sleekness make home design that little bit more fun, whilst always stylish with a fox present.

For adding depth to walls, layering the iconic Mr Fox in a blend of sizes can create distinct zones and take rooms from flat to foxy in no time.

If you’re looking to create a cosy reading spot for some tranquil, (much-needed) offline time, playing with Mr Fox in the dreamy Snow and Shadow neutrals makes for a harmonious home that adds texture and depth, without straying too far from a comforting and adaptable palette. It blends beautifully with other Scandi touches in furniture pieces and natural wood features and you can layer texture upon texture to nestle down into. Add a warm wash of light from a lamp and you’re away.

This play of texture over tone works wonders in office rooms as well. Doing away with the end of the dining table set up, where the kitchen is just too close and therefore too tempting. If there is a more secluded, private spot in the house to work with, Midi Fox is the companion of choice. Perfectly sized and adding a subtle cheekiness to your decor, he looks good as you gaze up from your freshly brewed cafetière.

Transforming the dining and kitchen spaces offers the chance to engage in splashes of colour that pop with the sunny disposition of the room. From the iconic Ginger to the new Chai notes, these delicious colours add distinction to one of the most used rooms in the home and pair with the zesty notes and tantalising smells emitting from the kitchen – inner chefs be freed.

In living spaces, in lieu of a period fire surround or statement log burner, adding a feature wall with a big splash of personality can bring another dimension to the room that will see you hosting after-dinner drinks and sitting down for some serious streaming. For a rosy glow, Mr Fox on a background of Milkshake is perfect, while Pebble evokes more of that cool, Scandi style with a coastal colour palette if that’s your vibe. Mr Fox in Mint Leaf is the glorious verdant shade to add a statement and never disappoints.

Scion has a fox in every size, scaled up or down, and in a host of warm and welcoming colours - a perfect fit for those new build homes that are freshly primed and ready for a serious stamp of personality.
