The old woodshed has become a deck area. The wall plates are
from Adairs and the bird cages are from The Complete Garden.
Bryan Wallace shares his design tips for the home
Describe your aesthetic... Relaxed glamour. I like to
throw in interesting pieces that surprise people.
How important is the style of the client? I always
consider the personality of clients: get them to show
me their favourite things, then pay attention to what
they wear because that shows their style, as well.
What’s your starting point? Some clients have had
great art collections, which formed the basis for the
design. I always try to make the bulk of the interior
quite timeless, so it doesn’t date: you don’t want to
keep changing the things you’ve spent good money
on, so keep them in neutral, earthy tones that will
stand the test of time. It’s in the decorator items that
you can add colour and change with the seasons, or
even completely change the personality of a room.
What always makes the cut? A mix of old and new,
with some organic, interesting pieces. I hate things
looking like you’ve gone out and bought everything
from the same shop. It’s always best to be brave and
have confidence in your personal style.
