FIND YOUR STYLE

Just like in fashion, there are endless different home decorating styles to choose from – Scandinavian, French Provincial, Hamptons or Industrial to mention a few. Try to find a style you love, and then keep it consistent throughout your home.

KEEP THE BASE NEUTRAL

A neutral base (a good pair of jeans or a plain white shirt) coordinated with accent pieces (coloured accessories and or fun layering pieces) are the basics for a chic wardrobe. The same goes in interiors – keep walls and big ticket furniture such as sofas, tables and bedheads in neutral colours, and have fun with your décor pieces using them to inject personality with colours, prints and patterns.

PLAY WITH TEXTURE

To create interest in your outfit, playing with textures such as lace, fur or leather is key. The same goes for interiors, especially when you have a monochrome colour palette such as in the popular Scandinavian style. This particular look is made more interesting by adding animal hides, exposed timber or raw concrete.

SPEND ON THE IMPORTANT STUFF

When it comes to your wardrobe, you should invest in premium quality when it comes to timeless pieces such as a coat, handbag and cashmere jumper, to keep you going from season to season. In homewares, you should be prepared to spend on big ticket items such as a mattress, couch and dining table, ensuring the quality and the look is timeless for years to come.

ACCESSORISE WITH TRENDS

Once you’ve got your quality basics in neutral colours, you can amp up your style season to season with colourful trend pieces. Same goes for interiors – with rose gold and marble being two of the hottest homewares trends at the moment, you can luxe up your neutral interiors with accent pieces such a candles, vases or a pendant light in the materials.
