We spend a lot of time at home so it’s important to create one you love and are proud of.
Pinterest is your friend as it’ll help you to notice themes and trends in what appeals to you; this can then be carried through each room to create a harmonious look and one that is unique to you and your personality.
Use a maximum of three colours or tones
This will also help to create a feeling of calm.
Add texture to create interest and depth through soft furnishings & accessories
Particularly when using a neutral palette, it’s really important to add textures or your scheme can look a bit one dimensional. Mixing fabrics such as linen and velvet is really impactful, as is styling a statement vase with beautiful blooms and introducing warm rustic woods.
Use home ‘jewellery’ such as trays, decorative bowls and vases which you can switch up with the seasons
When you go out to dinner accessories such as a statement necklace, beautiful bag and your favourite shoes really pulls a look together and gives you the opportunity to showcase your personality; it’s the same when interior styling and it’s so much fun too!
Add flowers to every room, these don’t have to be real! Our Bloom Bar offers faux options that look incredible realistic
Bringing natural elements into the home doesn’t have to be expensive – having fresh flowers every week would certainly add up – adding faux flowers to a beautiful vase brings so much joy and calm to a space, it’s low cost and you can switch them up depending on the season then switch them back again!
