STYLIST’S TOP TIPS

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

Layer floor rugs in con­trast­ing colours with sim­i­lar pat­tern styles.

Add in­ter­est­ing tex­ture to your walls. We used Porter’s

Paints French Wash, which gives a gor­geous tex­ture over a base coat of low sheen acrylic paint.

Break up a large room with screen di­viders – they can also pro­vide an in­ter­est­ing back­drop. Cre­ate a ca­sual hang­out zone

on the floor, Moroc­can style, with a mix of leather ot­tomans, cush­ions and rugs.

Add a cou­ple of hand­made em­broi­dered ot­tomans – they re­ally give a room an au­then­tic Moroc­can feel. Many come un­stuffed, so you’ll need to do this your­self. Up­hol­stery fill­ing, poly­styrene balls, old clothes and news­pa­pers are some op­tions.

Use cush­ions with over-the-top tex­tures – this makes a space feel cosy and invit­ing.

Em­brace a re­laxed vibe with shaggy rugs and piles of soft cush­ions.
