We can often feel constrained to the conventional way of decorating which can leave us with uninspiring cookie-cutter style interiors that all look the same, like they were replicated from a catalogue. They don't really feel like us, everything is matchy-matchy or the biggest offender in my book - the 'art' is chosen to match the colour of the furniture!!
The common misconception is that this can cost a lot but it really doesn't have to. We can combine affordable pieces with splurges and really inject our personalities through art and accessorizing to give our homes soul. For example my IKEA Farlov sofa which I LOVE sits happily among my mish-mash of collected pieces in our living room.
Something I strongly encourage is to incorporate vintage/thrifted/reclaimed pieces in your styling. I promise - it's a game-changer. Whether that be inherited pieces like your Granny's pine dresser or a thrifted piece of art from a flea market or charity shop - it will add a curated feel to your home - whether you live in a contemporary styled home or a more traditionally decorated space. No matter what it is, it will add soul.
We have been gathering some special pieces that will instantly take your styling to another level and create talking points in your home.
Just arrived, these beautiful handmade wooden figurines are crafted from reclaimed wood by local artisans in northern india, each one completely unique. I think these would look amazing against a stark white wall where they'd really pop. they add instant depth, warmth and character.
Even the smallest little touches can pack a punch. These reclaimed wood soap dishes made out of old cow bells would look pretty cool in any bathroom! All one-of-a-kind.
