Getting started on a new renovation or decorating project is not as difficult as it seems if you follow the process I used for my own bedroom renovation.
How do I decide on flooring?
The floor area sets the tone and feel, and is the second largest space next to the walls. Research the right product for your lifestyle.
The key to longevity is to take quality into consideration, as well as the look you want and installation.
The flooring used in my bedroom renovation, for instance, is Torlys cork plank, vintage block chai.
It was actually the inspiration for this space because I fell in love with the comfort, warmth and the many environmental benefits of the floor.
How do I coordinate fabrics?
Fabrics need to complement each other and not compete in terms of colour, pattern and scale in order to balance furnishings and style without being visually distracting. Try to choose all fabrics within a space at the same time.
How do I choose and display accessories?
If you don’t love it, live without it. Accessories should be a reflection of your personality or style.
Group accessories in odd numbers, preferably in threes, while varying the height of objects. Pillows, artwork, lighting and treasured pieces add a finishing touch and can be easily updated.
