Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

1 Let your home evolve! Don’t try to buy ev­ery­thing all at once, be pa­tient and col­lect pieces you love

that re­flect your per­sonal style. 2 Fol­low­ing trends is fun, but

in­vest in qual­ity, time­less big-ticket items and al­low the

soft fur­nish­ings (pil­lows, cush­ions, throws) and decor to fol­low trends. 3 Use con­sis­tent lines and shapes through your home for co­he­sion and a sense that the pieces have been care­fully cu­rated. This al­lows you to move things from room to room when you need a change, too. 4 Don’t be afraid to take risks with colour! My green vel­vet sofa is one of my favourite items, and I’m so glad I em­braced the bright bold colour. 5 To cre­ate a per­fect pic­ture wall, cut out com­pa­ra­ble sizes of pa­per for each paint­ing and Blu Tack to the wall first to check po­si­tions be­fore fix­ing frames.
