Beautiful artwork, greenery, cleverly positioned lighting or hand-picked coffee table books, these are a few tricks that can make one’s home a sanctuary to live in.
As we launch our Big Ideas Issue, remember one rule: your space is your playground; have fun!
MASTERS OF ART
A refined decorator can change a room from drab to fab. Some of the best in the business give their top ideas to enhance your space
Don’t be afraid to buy and collect art. Adorn the walls with pictures, photos, postcards and paintings
Plants bring a serenity and there is nowhere better to practice that serenity than a day bed
Always ask yourself what you want from the room, how you want to live in that room
Performance and aesthetics meet as equals in the move towards clean and functional – almost empty- kitchens that integrate with the rest of the home. Curated spaces blur the borders between living and cooking.
Colour and pattern define your space, adding the soft edges and visual detail to the basic design. In wallpapers and textiles, take your time to explore widely and choose wisely.
