While having an impeccable home is an absolute dream, it doesn’t allow us to fully immerse ourselves in the space without feeling like we’re ruining the look. Rather opt for designs that allow you to use the area functionally and easily.

Let it be Cozy

Create small pockets of coziness. This can be anything from a reading corner, comfy couches adorned in throws and scatter cushions to utilising rugs to pull spaces together. This not only makes your home feel warmer but it also makes it an inviting space for anyone who visits.

Add Personality

Don’t be afraid to involve yourself in your space- it is your home after all! Include images of your family and friends to add a real sense of who you are. If you have children, display their art in a tasteful way and include trinkets of your life.

Celebrate your Collections

Your home should tell a story of who you are, so don’t be afraid to express that! Include hobby items or pieces you’ve collected through your travels. Traveling images are a great way to add an artistic element to your space while also telling a story. If you enjoy art, books or records- showcase them! It’s a great conversation starter about something that you are passionate about.
