If you’re wondering why expensive home always look so great, a lot can be resolved in both how you purchase – even on a budget – and how you style your spaces.
Read on for our expert tips...
1. Buy a bunch of matching frames
This will give a cohesive look to your artworks and display them with style. Either a set of frames in different sizes, or a group of all the same will work equally well. Odd numbers work best in a row, or for larger collections, work with a grid style or create a gallery wall.
2. Stick to a colour palette
Once you’ve chosen your colours for decorating, stick to them. Work from a moodboard and add your products, paints and purchases as you go to ensure everything works beautifully together. This will keep your look as streamlined as possible and result in a more luxurious look.
3. Less is more
Concentrate your efforts on a few well-chosen pieces of furniture and art. Having fewer accessories and décor items is an ideal way to add value to your essentials.
4. Make everything count
Choose items for your home that mean something to you. If something in your room is non- essential or doesn’t fill you with joy, edit, edit, edit and pare things right back. For a more expensive look create vignettes with your belongings by styling them together in groups, rather than having things strewn around.
5. Keep it clean and tidy
Without care you home looks unloved and unkempt. It’s a tall ask but if possible, keep your home tidy at all times to give the impression everything is where it should be, has been carefully selected for the space and purchased. At the very least, invite friends over regularly so prompt a quick whip through to clean and tidy for their visit – then enjoy the rewards yourself when they’ve gone.
