DENISE’S STYLE TIPS
+ Find a story in the pieces you buy. I have an eclectic style and I favour things that are old or have a story to them. The antique bowling balls in my table centrepiece had an earlier use and I like that. Look for things that mean something.
+ Don’t be tempted to blindly follow trends if that is not what you love. Trends will come and go. Pieces that you treasure will last a lifetime. + Try not to leave decisions to the last minute when you are redecorating. Give yourself time to make good choices.
+ Window treatments need careful consideration. I wanted simple linen drapes in my bedroom and I love the full-length curtains. However, the fabric I used as a roman blind is a disaster. When it’s down it looks like a bland and insipid piece of material on the wall.
+ If your home has beautiful window joinery and a stunning outlook, keep window treatments off the glazing where possible. It helps to enhance the view and allows more light to flood in.
