HOW TO MIX DESIGN STYLES
Marina’s five tricks for creating cultural fusion
1 Keep your home’s design scheme neutral and simple – don’t be tempted to use too many colours.
2 Black, white and grey are chic and sophisticated, and work well as a backdrop for more eclectic pieces.
3 Natural materials, particularly raw wood, ceramics and good quality textiles, help a space feel more soulful.
4 Incorporate at least one showstopping signature piece – you can use vintage and found objects extensively if there are a couple of designer touches to elevate them.
5 Take your time – it’s more important to find the right furnishing than to compromise because you’re in a hurry.
