STYLIST’S TOP TIPS

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

Paint a black stripe at eye level to cre­ate a bold monochro­matic look. Here, it also de­fines a space for wall-hung stor­age boxes – we chose crisp white for a strik­ing con­trast. If the box has a back, paint it to match your wall paint. Make your en­try­way feel more spa­cious. Wall-hung fur­ni­ture such as the boxes and wall shelf help keep be­long­ings out of the way. Like­wise, keep shoes, bags and other ne­ces­si­ties hid­den away in stor­age bas­kets un­der a bench seat.

Cre­ate a feature wall with wall­pa­per – it’s eas­ier than ever thanks to new ad­vance­ments in wall­pa­per. Adding a large feature mir­ror helps to break up the wall­pa­per pat­tern and cre­ate a fo­cal point.

Dec­o­rate with plants and run­ner rugs to make your en­try­way feel more invit­ing. Faux plants are a good op­tion for spa­ces with not enough nat­u­ral light (or if your green thumb is more brown!).
