Earlier in the week I attended the Press Release event of Anthropologies Autumn/Winter homewares collection. I’ve always been a fan of this eclectic store as not only do I love what they sell, but I am always returning to see what creative display they have put up.
Regular readers of this blog will know that I don’t usually talk about particular products as I’m more geared towards talking about design. However, I couldn’t resist a sneak peak.
When I got there, I was blown away with the displays they had put together I just had to take a few snaps. In turn, I realised that it is just as important to understand the basics of styling as it is about design for an Interior Designer to be successful. The finishing touches are what complete the interior and as they say, the devil is always in the details. So I thought I’d put together some basic things to consider below:
- Display similar items together to create a harmonious focal point.
- Vary the height of objects to create interest.
- Always add flowers, foliage or food to appeal to the senses.
- Add quirky items in unexpected places.
- Restrict the colour palette but provide lots of texture.
If you happen to be a professional interior stylist out there or even if you’re not, I’d love to know what you think as these tips were purely derived from the photo’s I took. And even if have something you’d like to add to the list, I’m always eager to learn so don’t be shy!
It’s a long weekend over here in the UK so I will be back on Tuesday with another Interior Profile. Whatever you are up to, have a good one. And for all of my fellow blogging friends who are off to Berlin for The Hive Conference, safe travels and have a great time!
Till next week. Enjoy! xD
