Lisa’s tips for cre­at­ing a stylish week­ender

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - HOME DESIGN -

Bring natural el­e­ments in­doors, such as logs, shells, stones and plants, so you feel part of the en­vi­ron­ment. If you see some­thing and you love it, it may seem im­prac­ti­cal at the time but you can utilise it – like us­ing an out­door planter pot in­doors. Don’t be afraid to go big. Group­ing things that have tex­ture to­gether may help at first. Cel­e­brate things in an un­ex­pected way – for example, us­ing wooden pal­lets as fur­ni­ture or a wire bas­ket as a bed­side ta­ble. Be brave with the things you are drawn to; keep walls neu­tral and then bring colour in with art and ob­jects. Keep going! Some­times you bring some­thing into a space and then you move it – don’t al­ways go for the ob­vi­ous space first.
