Style Your Home With These 4 Easy Tips
PICK A “SIGNATURE” COLOR
Pick a colour that carries through each room, a consistent colour makes your whole home feel cohesive. Don’t worry about following trends, just select something you love!
Sometimes, when you’re wanting a certain look, you can get something custom-made that is great quality and will elevate a particular space, such as a lounge from Aussie owned Sydney Lounge Specialist. Another option to enhance things further, may be a painting you can hang in the living room that will give the entire room a completely different ‘feel’. It will become a conversation piece that creates a unique personality in your home.
MIX HIS & HERS
Mix up hard “masculine” and soft “feminine” shapes (such as square / angular vs. round or curvy). It’s easier to layer “feminine” shapes (such as floral cushions) on masculine furniture (eg: a clean-lined sofa) rather than vice versa.
Choose wisely at markets (and online market places), op shops and antique stores. You can paint or re-upholster secondhand furniture, but it’s much more difficult to alter basic structure, so make sure you like the original form.
