FLOWERS ALWAYS FINISH A ROOM
There’s no better way to complete yo ur ro om than by adding flowers;
they are the icing on the cake! A clever trick if you’re not good at arranging
them yourself is to choose one type of flower or colour and display them
en masse in simple vases.
GET BACK TO NATURE
I love the outdoors and living
in Australia, and I am inspired
by the ocean and our coastline.
Take yo ur cues from Mother Nature
(who always gets it right) an d look
to natu ral colou rs, tex tures an d
n atu ral elemen ts for yo ur home.
Nature-inspired fabrics a nd
fu rn ishings are the easiest way
to ma ke a home feel relaxed.
And treat the outdoors like any other
ro om by furn ishing it with key pieces
an d deco rative items to tran sfo rm
it into an outdoo r ro om.
BE BRAVE WITH COLOUR
I really love colour and the effect it has – it can change a space completely.
It’s all about having confidence and not being afraid to make a mistake.
There’s no need to rush, so take your time, but be bold and try new things.
You don’t have to commit completely by pai nting a wall, just try sma ll gestu res,
such as adding colour in the accessories and accents if you’re not feeling brave.
Altern atively, try soft or subdued colo u r – n ot eve rything needs to be bright.
