What’s the secret to decorating your home like a grade A interior stylist?
You don’t have to be one!
While it’s easy to have a beautiful home when you’ve got disposable income, we also believe in creating a home in an affordable way that truly depicts who you are. Use these tips and tricks to help transform your space into a haven that reflects you and your spirit…
1. VISUALISE AND COLLATE
Head on over to the mothership of interior inspiration – Pinterest!
Spend hours scrolling through and compile some styles and concepts that interest you. If you like interior, you’re a visual person, so a mood board is your best friend here. Get cutting and pasting!
2. LOGICAL THINKING
While it would be great to swap in the old leather couch for something new, more often than not the price of these staple pieces is just too much, but there’s another option…
Opt for simple coverings or spreads. Many stores stock neutral coloured throws and covers which give the room space and offer a blank canvas for your interior vision.
3. COLOUR PLAN
Colour has an interesting effect on mood, and can either brighten or bring down the vibe of your room, so it's important to choose tones which compliment and elevate your space! Adobe Colour Wheel is a great tool to mix and match colour combos before committing. We're sorry, but red and green just shouldn't be seen... together, that is. So Choose wisely!
4. KEY DECOR
These are the stars of the show, although not always necessarily screaming for attention.
Subtle inserts of personal style through the use of cushions, shelves, frames and wall art are small details with high impact. Plus, adding affordable pieces such as prints means you can rotate your look as seasons change. Affordable doesn’t mean cheap or fake, it simply means smart.
Interior is about choosing what you love and making your space your own. While these starting tricks are here to guide you, ultimately it’s up to you to add your own personal flair to your special place!
