5 Styling Tips Straight from our Studio

Mar 18, 2021 | Design

We post a lot on Instagram and we thought we would collate some of our favourite interior and exterior styling tips that we’ve posted in the captions. What all these tips have in common is that it’s the smaller details that can finish a room or space off. The type of cushion or plan can make all the difference.

Tip 1: Colours and why they are important.

The colour green relates to balance and harmony & a sense of Calm. It is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions.

By bringing in touches of Green into your home styling with plants and fabrics it can give a sense of life and growth, it is the colour of spring, of renewal and restores depleted energy.

It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of wellbeing.

Tip 2: Styling your outdoor entertaining area.

As Australians we love outdoor entertaining and living. Almost all year round we have perfect weather which see us spending so much time outside.

When styling your lounge add pops of bold contrasting colours and prints when layering your cushion. Don’t forget to add ambiance with candles and lanterns for that extra luxurious touch.

Tip 3: Autumn Colours

Autumn is officially here.

Colours we often associate with autumn are reds, oranges, and yellows as these are represented in nature but other colours making a big appearance this season are deep teal tones and browns.

You could select one of these colours to be an accent colour in your home by adding 3-5 pops of it across a room. For example, terracotta tones are big this season and simply using a feature cushion on your sofa, a small vase on your coffee table and a pot or artwork with this colour is enough.

Tip 4: Coastal is NOT nautical.

We’re often asked, ‘What’s the difference?’

There’s a vast difference between these two aesthetics.

A coastal interior draws on loads of natural light, soft neutral tones, and an uncluttered, clean space. It’s designed to create the feeling of year-round, endless summers. When furnishing a coastal interior, we look to the natural wonders of wood, rattan, linen, and stone.

A coastal aesthetic can of course be textural and layered, but this doesn’t mean busy and over the top with beachy trinkets. That’s pushing nautical style.

Nautical is nice, but it’s only ideal in rustic beach shacks whereas coastal design sits well in just about any home, not just houses on the beach.

Coastal is contemporary.

Tip 5: Reconfigure. Go figure.

Feel like you need a room change?

You don’t need to completely overhaul an already furnished space.

By just moving your furniture around you can so easily create a fresh new feel. Add just a few new pieces (a cool decorative ornament on the coffee table, a beautiful throw cushion and a plant) to highlight the change and there you have it. A fresh new space.
