EX­PERT AD­VICE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Global Design -

Fo­cus on the long-term ex­pe­ri­ence rather than the here and now. Trust your in­stincts and be hon­est about who you are in­stead of fol­low­ing a trend that you’ll grow out of any­way. Choose or­ganic ma­te­ri­als that wear well – met­als, stone, wool, leather, wood. This is the only rule that has re­mained a con­stant for us, and it’s how we form our colour pal­ette. It helps to cre­ate at­mos­phere. Go for things you’ve fallen in love with – not pieces that fit a cer­tain style. This adds per­son­al­ity. We source fur­ni­ture from ab­so­lutely ev­ery­where. Well thought out light­ing

is key. You can use it to com­pletely change the look and feel of a space. Think in lay­ers and in­clude task light­ing, as well as lamps, to cre­ate warmth. It’s some­thing we’re very good at in this part of the world, as it’s so dark for most of the year.
