SHAPE-SHIFT­ING STYLE

Real Living (Australia) - - HOMES -

Claire used a mix of shapes and colours in her styling to cre­ate a lay­ered de­sign. Start­ing with a strong, co­he­sive foun­da­tion in the fur­ni­ture, floor­ing and ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails, she then added vases, bowls and wall hang­ings of dif­fer­ent sizes to cre­ate vis­ual in­ter­est. “When us­ing colour, I tend to work with a lim­ited pal­ette of up to three to four colours, but they don’t need to all be the same hue,” she adds. “Avoid an overly staged look by vary­ing up the tones and go­ing for a mix of tex­tures.” An­other tip? “Work to the pro­por­tions of the room, tak­ing into ac­count the ceil­ing height, and work in pieces that play to the vol­ume of the space.”
