Our first question for the team, and one they get a lot, is how can you change a cold, bare looking room to one that is warm and comfortable with lots of personality?

Here’s what they had to say!

The best way to add personality and comfort to a room is by layering it with accessories and furnishings to make the room come alive. Layering a room can provide visual interest, texture, depth, and a sense of luxury. Try mixing different design styles into a modern interior to create a timeless look that is both luxurious and comfortable.

Area rugs are a great place to start to inject colour and texture into a room. With so many styles including graphic, classic, tribal and textural, rugs help to create a design style as well as define an area.

Layer in artwork by hanging large canvases or by creating a gallery wall above a sofa or up a stairway. You can use different frame shapes in similar colour tones or the same frame in different sizes. Switch out pictures during the year to suit your mood or the season.

Adding in mirrors and metallic accents are a great way to bring light and glamour to a space. Feel free to mix metals. Coppers and golds are very hot right now!

Use a generous amount of throw pillows in different colours, textures and shapes. Don’t forget about the floor where you can introduce poufs and large box cushions for extra seating.

Thanks for the tips ladies! Stay tuned for next time for our next round of design ideas!
