Style= Courage + Daring to be Different.

Style is about being memorable. And all memorable rooms have something that is a little off beat or whacky.

If you want to have style you need a whole lot of believing in yourself.  Have the courage to do what you like, not follow your friends or trends.  And only have the things that you love.  Style has nothing to do with $$$.  But You do need to do things differently to how you have always done them and be open to change.  It is sort of like a personal house challenge boot camp!

You want a space that is going to cocoon you & make you feel well ‘at home’.  You want a space that makes you go “Yum & Wow” at the same time.

So use the following to have a completely new look with style:

  •  use paint/wallpaper
  • amazing accessories
  • rethink your furniture placement
  • colour
  • accessories
  • only have things you love

So re vamp, replace, re upholster, and re vamp again.  To make your space really zing you need to have courage, then take a deep breath and jump in! After that all you need is colour and more courage to dare to be quirky and add things that are a little off beat and unexpected. Big doses of all 3 – courage, colour, and quirky.

Look at the wonderful interior below by Nikki Tibbles.  Note the pops of colour. Also juxtaposition of masculine grey with pretty & feminine, The contemporary sofa covered in a traditional chintz is quirky, the industrial contemporary lamp with feminine fabrics are all things you don’t see everywhere. Nikki is an amazing London floral designer and says she only has things in her home she loves. Somehow that works doesn’t it?RoomServiceNikkiTibbles3
