DE­SIGN DE­TAILS MAXIMALISM

Has­san Ab­dul­lah from Les Trois Garçons shares his de­sign mantra

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Home Decorating -

Be bold in a hall­way. A strong pat­tern used here cre­ates a last­ing im­pres­sion with­out be­ing over­pow­er­ing – peo­ple pass through this space rather than linger.

Strong wall­pa­pers need strong ac­ces­sories.

Think state­ment art­works, stat­ues, mir­rors and light­ing.

If you love bold pat­tern, cre­ate rooms with sym­me­try.

It en­sures or­der and calms things down a lit­tle. Use dif­fer­ent wall­pa­pers in dif­fer­ent rooms. In this house a se­lec­tion of patterns re­flect the mood of a room and the pur­pose of that space. Don’t fear pat­tern in a bed­room. But do stick to muted colours to cre­ate calm.

Use ac­ces­sories to add con­trast.

A strong wall­pa­per such as a Vic­to­rian damask evokes that de­sign pe­riod, so add con­tem­po­rary pieces to mix it up. ➤
