Where does your inspiration draw from?
My top three tips for styling any space would have to be using organic materials, mixing and matching and keeping it simple! Consider adding organic materials, such as wood and stone, as the earthy texture and warmth of these materials offer an inviting atmosphere. Layering and mixing materials offers a visually interesting look and is definitely a crucial element. Let the natural beauty and imperfections of the materials shine through without overwhelming the space with too many decorative elements. Overall an uncluttered and refined space always looks a lot more elevated.
What are your favourite pieces in the home?
This is a tricky one for me to choose just one! We spend so much time as a family around our dining table and coffee table. This is where we come together and where we make memories. I believe furniture can be a part of making memories in the home and this makes the design process so fulfilling.
Top tip for adding character whilst you are renting?
A great way to bring character into a rental and making the home feel personalised is through artwork. Adorning the walls with pieces that evoke a feeling or memory can transform the house to a home that truly feel yours. Another way to elevate and personalise a space can be to add window furnishings. I always have custom curtains made in every space I move into whether it be for home or work. It is an affordable way to instantly transform a space.
