Layers and Layers - Styling Tips

Our  No.1 question from clients when we first meet is "Why can't I get my space to look finished?"  (inquiry just this am with this exact question!)

And our answer is always the same. Completing a room/home/space requires not only furniture that fits in terms of scale colour style but more importantly it requires the detailed layers of accessories art and decor to pull it all together and "feel" right. ( and done!) 
Final styling is the most important piece of the puzzle!

Its not about styling secrets...we aren't magic - although we like to believe when that's the word used lol 🙌. But there are some definite styling constants that always work so keep them in mind when finishing a space or changing it up! Look to magazines and online decor sources for inspiration and what speaks to you and then copy the look with your collected bits.

Create and complete YOUR story

It's your home. Find what inspires you ( trust that!)  and sprinkle throughout. The story of you and and the people living there . We always think a space should fit like a favourite pair of shoes. Looks like a million dollars and tells us who you are! If its forced and "not you" that comes across in the feeling of a space. I always relay the day we looked at our current home. When I was standing at the front door looking into the space for the first time I knew...right then it was a home that reflected and felt like me.💓

Group objects you love . Typically larger at the back, smaller at the front. Group in odd  numbers - but don't stress on that! Even is lovely and clean looking too!
Fill space gently- don't block it. Scale pieces to the surface size.

I don't mean deep inner reflection! I mean reflect the light everywhere! Mirrors open up a space, reflecting light and beauty. Use them often!!

Lovely texture on walls, floors, surfaces! Layer neutral textures everywhere. This is again why sometimes places feel so good. Texture gives a sense of cozy and warm. Books are a great way to add texture. I LOVE old books for that reason- old and weathered with a story    (literally and figuratively!) to tell.

Broken record! Broken record! Greenery floral and organics  ( alive or faux) in a space  = LIFE. Many times this is the element missing. Faux is fab for black thumbs ( or travellers or just plain busy people) Such great bits out there now! Tuck greenery into pots on a bookshelf, coffee table, kitchen counter, bedside table. Every space you live in needs a hit of fresh!

Pillows and throws and pouffs are a great way to add the final layers on your seating areas and of course on the bed. (groan from the men folk!!) carry your colour scheme into the pillows and add another one for some fun and interest! We always suggest feather inserts in throw pillows - they don't flatten like poly inserts and can be fluffed easily! Its amazing how changing up the pillows can change the look of a room instantly! Try it! Small investment big reward.

OK friends! Go rearrange or fluff or showcase your special things! Change is great! Thinking of one (or all!) of these aspects above will guide you. Have fun. Candy for your room and its YOUR story:)
