INSPIRED DECOR

Revel in six sensational decorating ideas The Home discovered at Lisa Madigan’s cottage! These stylish, yet functional touches are must-try looks for your charming abode.

GROUPING FRAMES

Instead of a single statement pieces of art, consider dotting a collection of smaller frames together on your wall for a mesmerising finish. You’ll never have to choose a favourite piece again; this idea lets you showcase all your much-loved artistic finds at the same time.

ORGANISE WITH LADDERS

Reinvent rustic ladders for organised charm. Lisa utilises an old ladder as a towel rack in her bathroom, while a ladder in the bedroom is a handy solution for hanging clothes and bags frequently
in use.

CHAIRS AS SIDE TABLES

Make the most of small spaces with a streamlined solution to bedroom décor. By utilising chairs with an old-world charm, Lisa has created two side tables that complement the character-filled space. Bedroom lamps, a touch of nature, and decorative accents are all at home here.

COLLECTIONS

“An easy way to master the art of styling at home is to start by dotting your space with things that mean something to you,” says Lisa. Consider showcasing pieces such as art, seashells, antique accents or photos that are special to you. Tip: keep pieces in a collection close to a
similar theme or palette for a
successful harmony.

HIDE BOOK SPINES

“I love colour, but I can’t live with it!” says Lisa when we question her bookcase styling. To indulge a love of reading without an abundance of mismatched book covers and spines disrupting her palette, Lisa reverses books and magazines to ensure they sit with their spines hidden.

BRING THE OUTDOORS IN

A touch of nature is a quick and easy way to infuse warmth and texture to your décor. We love the eye-catching ways Lisa has subtly included seeds and blooms throughout her home. Hanging in vintage glass bottles and resting on wicker chairs are just a few unique
ways to incorporate a little
nature-inspired beauty.

FUNCTIONAL FITS

Be creative with functional items you’re using all the time. Here Lisa hangs rustic shopping bags when they’re not in use for added texture and warmth to the space.

Take inspiration from your surrounding environment. Whether you live in a country cottage or a city apartment, you’ll achieve balance and harmony by creating this connection,”
