Ma­rina’s five tricks for cre­at­ing cul­tural fu­sion

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - The Trends -

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.
