Real Living (Australia) - - HOMES -

1 AVOID CLUT­TER “It’s very im­por­tant to not have too many things in one room – I don’t like it crowded.”

2 THINK SMALL “Take care of the lit­tle de­tails – they make the dif­fer­ence.”

3 EM­BRACE FLORALS “Buy fresh flow­ers – they add a colour ac­cent to the room they’re in.”

4 BUY PRELOVED “Include some vin­tage fur­ni­ture – you can get beau­ti­ful things at flea mar­kets.”

5 CREATE A NAR­RA­TIVE “Choose things that have sto­ries behind them, and when­ever you have the chance to buy fur­ni­ture di­rectly from a work­shop or a de­signer, do it. It’ll be worth it.”

6 COLOUR ME HAPPY “Choose the same hues for wall sur­faces and large fur­ni­ture, and add colour with small pieces like cush­ions or flow­ers. You can al­ter a room’s look by chang­ing the lit­tle things.”

7 SET THE MOOD “Use one colour ac­cent in each room to create a dif­fer­ent mood in ev­ery space.” 8 TRY NEW MA­TE­RI­ALS “Ex­cep­tional ma­te­ri­als, like wood for the bath, turn the bath­room into a spa.”
