Home Style Tips

  • Theme: When decorating, you don't need an overly-specific theme, just an idea of how you want your space to look. For example, do you want your kitchen to have a rustic, country feel to it? Consider buying some wooden chairs  and a simple tablecloth. Any theme can be carried across easily and look smart at the same time. 
  • Colour Scheme: Just because you're going for a modern look, the whole room doesn't have to consist of red, black and white. Work other subtle colours in like silver, brown or cool blue. Trying to get too colour-coordinated in one room can just end up looking overdone.
  • Clutter: Having one great picture frame  for your end table is great, but trying to fit five on there may result in excess--and your room will look messy. Pick out your favourite items to put on display and, if possible, put the rest in storage. You can keep things current by rotating pieces every couple of months.
