Blog - interior design
Recently I was asked if I could 'warm up' a client's kitchen. Even though the living space in this kitchen/ diner/ living area was big, light and comfortable, the client said the space just wasn't inviting enough!
After my last post about making the most of your random objects (read here), I thought I might show you an example from my home of an unassuming piece of furniture and how it has found its way into an equally unassuming corner of my kitchen.
A few weeks ago I was asked to come up with a scheme for a bedroom. My client was my sister, so although I instinctively knew her tastes, I also had to get it right!
It may well be that like me, you have some objects in your home that have sentimental value and they hang around but they don’t quite fit in with your scheme. Personally, I think this is good! It is these objects- with the story they tell, that not only give you the comfort factor that make your house your home but they also tell a story to other people.
However, sometimes by the very fact that these pieces may have been picked up from random places; some may be family heirlooms, others may be from a holiday, some old, some new- it can all start looking a bit eclectic and….random!
Fortunately there are some tips that can help and decorating with them in mind will help to give your home a cohesiveness and yet at the same time, give it personality and a real sense of ‘you’.
