We all know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but we also know that first impressions are everything. Make sure to give your entrance hall some love and let people know what they are walking into when they enter your home. Place a beautiful bench or console close to the entrance for a functional and visually pleasing setting.
It is a common mistake to forgo purpose for beauty. Luckily, you can have both! Chairs should be comfortable, dining tables should be the right height, and you shouldn’t struggle with your furniture. Your home should be a marriage between utility and style. Make sure your couches are generously padded and your throws are soft and cozy for maximum comfort and premium style.
Moderation is the key to style – and sometimes even moderation should be done in moderation. Finding a balance between practicality and aesthetics or contemporary and classic design pieces can help you create a truly interesting and dynamic space that will pique interest and inspire.
At some stage, neat layering and square edges were all the rage. Now, the world of decor has started to embrace the beauty of imperfection. Pillows don’t need to be equally spaced, throws don’t need to be neatly folded. It is called a scatter cushion for a reason after all! Add visual complexity by randomising your cushion arrangement or gathering a throw on your bed. Although, this doesn’t mean compromising on intentionality. It just means finding the magic in flexible and authentic styling.
Similarly to layering, styling is about more than placing furniture according to an equation. Feel free to experiment, try the unexpected, and don’t be afraid to move things around. It won’t always work but sometimes knowing what doesn’t work in your space is more useful that knowing what does. Enjoy the process of trial and error and create something new and special in your space. While there are rules that should be followed, the exciting thing about styling your space is that there is so much room for your own personal style to shine through.
