- What would be your advice to someone who wants to create a home like yours?
Use your imagination, be true to yourself and what will really make you feel happy. Its all about your surroundings, the style you choose defines you and your mood. If its cluttered, you will feel stressed, and visa versa. One thing I would say is that if you are also a colour fiend like me, then consider how you will balance that out. Because it is possible that lots of colour could become a stressful environment to live in. Consider balancing that with neutrals, including black. Or create one bright feature wall, rather than the whole room, it will really stand out that way and feel focused. Adding anything natural like wood and plants really works wonders. Always think about re-using the things that you already have, it is not always necessary to buy new. The majority of my homewares are either second hand, from charity shops, free cycle or just re vamped. I bought an old cocktail chair on ebay and re upholstered it, that was one of my favorite DIY projects. I also bought a huge solid wood decorative mirror for above my fireplace for only £15 on Ebay, painted it white and voilà, a fresh beautiful new look! You Tube has a plethora of tutorials!
