EX­PERT AD­VICE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Global Design -

I like to build up what I call an ‘en­ve­lope’ of time­less

ma­te­ri­als and fin­ishes that can serve as a beau­ti­ful blank can­vas for the rest of the fur­nish­ings to be lay­ered on top of. This way, the scheme will have a ground­ing that can en­dure over sev­eral small, less chal­leng­ing re­freshes. Learn­ing to edit your be­long­ings is a great skill to de­velop. When you gain a bit of space in a room, there’s more op­por­tu­nity to ap­pre­ci­ate each ob­ject, piece of fur­ni­ture or art­work. Be will­ing to have some fun and add a piece of art, a cush­ion or a fea­ture chair that’s in com­plete con­trast to the aes­thetic in the rest of your home. Al­low your space to be a per­sonal re­flec­tion of your jour­neys and ad­ven­tures. Bring in in­spir­ing books, an ob­ject that you found that trig­gers a mo­ment seared into your me­mory, or sen­ti­men­tal things that re­mind you of a mag­i­cal time in your life.
