RE­FINED EL­E­GANCE

Inside Out - - INSIDER | ON TREND -

Here’s how to com­bine the struc­ture of a land­scape gar­den de­sign with the abun­dance of flower and bird pat­terns… Keep it light These in­tri­cate pat­terns are real show­stop­pers so pare back the rest of the space with bare wood or tiled floors, pale fur­ni­ture and white wood­work. Com­bine busy fab­ric pat­terns with plain ton­ing tex­tiles to pro­vide a lit­tle bal­ance and rest the eye. Choose sim­ple styling With such beau­ti­ful but bold de­signs tak­ing the lead, it’s im­por­tant to avoid over­crowd­ing with fussy de­tails. Stick to one or two cush­ions with a sin­gle mo­tif, and group ob­jects to­gether in threes – a clas­sic in­te­rior de­signer trick – for a striking dis­play. En­hance the theme Fin­ish­ing touches, ob­jets, or ar­range­ments that mir­ror the wall­pa­per or fab­ric pat­tern can look in­cred­i­bly ef­fec­tive, pro­vided some re­straint is ex­er­cised: faux topi­ary dis­played against a trel­lis pa­per, a vase of faux or fresh blooms against a flo­ral back­ground, a pretty wired bird­cage set in front of soar­ing bird il­lus­tra­tions, all look ef­fec­tive and con­sid­ered.
