A birdie once told me that the best way to express yourself is to paint a picture of the world from your own personal perspective. Whether its transforming your home from a blank canvas or brightening up your living room with new seasonal accessories, the key way to start decorating begins with the discovery of your own style.
I myself am quite a minimalist, I like clean cut designs with neutral tones but can appreciate that my clients would like something completely different; that’s what makes us different! So before you browse the web for hours trying to find that perfect new sofa, I encourage you to find some inner inspiration with the following questions:
1. What are your tastes, preferences, likes and dislikes?
Your surroundings affect your mood and attitude so you want to ensure that the surroundings within your home, the choice of colours and lighting make you feel relaxed, comfortable and positive.
2. What type of appeal do you want your home to achieve?
This question is key for anyone who utilizes their home for business, pleasure, leisure or social events on a regular basis.
3. What inspires you?
This question is very similar to question 1 but acutely different as it’s about what’s made you as of today and where you want to be.
Home is where the heart is and I like my clients to be open and feel that their visions, passions and motivations are centered in their homes – that way they can feel excited and reminded of who they are and what their goals are. Are you passionate about travelling, family, business, food, culture, music or philanthropy? Well then why not bring your passions into your home to make you that much more excited to wake up everyday and achieve your dreams.
