Ever wanted to re-style your home? Some people have a natural flair for styling, but if you’re not so confident about your abilities, you’re in luck. We have compiled a list of simple styling tips that can make all the difference when attempting your DIY re-style. From textures and patterns to indoor plants, here are the small changes that make a big impact in your home.
A statement piece
The bigger the better. A statement piece of art on a key wall can make a big impact in your home. This means your furniture and finishing’s can be low key and neutral to give the art space to stand out. It doesn’t need to be an expensive piece. Your favourite photo, a patterned print or a framed fabric works well in this space.
Texture and pattern
Texture and patterns are a simple and affordable way to add personality and colour to your home. Cushions, throws and rugs allow the opportunity to be changed seasonally with little expense. In winter you may choose woollen throws, textured materials and warm hues, and in summer you may opt for light and bright materials and patterns.
Bowls, vases, books and statues are great to group on your bookshelves, coffee tables or dining tables. That’s because grouping these items can create a strong feature. Select different sized objects and, as a rule of thumb, they should be odd in numbers.
The eclectic look can work in some circumstances, but generally speaking, less is more when it comes to interior styling. An impactful piece, pattern or colour can become overwhelming when used in large quantities in one space. So, when creating a styled space, use one statement piece, and let it be the hero.
For the love of plants
Plants, plants, plants! There are so many benefits to having plants in your home, from stress reductions, increased oxygen circulation and it’s also a cost-effective way to style your home. Choose an interesting pot or a woven basket and group your plants with varied heights and shapes to create impact.
