Let’s face it, our homes, just like our bod­ies, of­ten leave a lot to be de­sired, and it’s easy to get dispir­ited about those lumps and bumps or spa­ces that don’t match our decor dreams. So what a re­lief to find “im­per­fect” in­te­ri­ors – the ones most of us have – can be im­proved if not trans­formed, and all it re­ally takes is a shake-up in our at­ti­tude.

“Most peo­ple I know have a long list of rea­sons why their home isn’t per­fect,” says in­te­ri­ors stylist Emily Hen­son, au­thor of the book Life Un­styled: How to Em­brace Im­per­fec­tion and Cre­ate a Home You Love.

“There can be all sorts of rea­sons for that. Per­haps they’re rent­ing and can’t make their own mark, there isn’t a lot of cash to spare for dec­o­rat­ing, the space is too small or there isn’t enough stor­age. Ac­tu­ally, few of us feel our home ful­fils ev­ery need – and let’s be hon­est, that’s a pretty tall or­der any­way.

“It’s time to cel­e­brate the beauty of im­per­fect in­te­ri­ors and over­haul your ap­proach. It’s all about break­ing the rules and find­ing your own way in the world of in­te­ri­ors.”
