Use a colour scheme as your foundation

For a complete home makeover, the first step is creating a colour palette as your foundation. Select a basic colour scheme for the whole house, and let it play out from room to room. The easiest palette for a home is tone-on-tone neutrals with the addition of two accent colours.

1. colour scheme

Feature investment pieces in sight

Admire and enjoy your favourite investment pieces every day by displaying them in the central spaces, especially in a utilitarian room like the lounge or bathroom.

Manipulate height with low furniture

To manipulate height and create scale in a small space, add low-strung furniture and large mirrors. The idea is to create strong verticals and avoid the horizontal.


Incorporate window trims

Window trim is another great opportunity for a statement piece and one that is often overlooked.  We suggest painting them a colour to blend in with the landscape or make it more dramatic by taking the colour upwards and highlighting the window trims in black.

Use mirrors to their benefit

Mirrored panels can be elegant — but large mirror sheets can look commercial, so incorporate a sectioned pattern in a unique style. Consider your mirrors placement and the reflection.  You want to reflect a beautiful scene, like a pretty chandelier or feature piece.

Amplify neutrals with texture

Neutral décor can give your space a modern edge or add a style personality. Soft hues create a calming atmosphere while the contrast of a black-and-white colour scheme introduces drama and flair.

Create extra luxe with extra pillows

Incorporate an assortment of large pillows. Include two pairs, in contrasting patterns, colours, and textures.


Place furniture according to space size

Design your space strategically based on your room size. Correct furniture placement can dramatically improve the feel and dimension of a space. For example, placing a lounge piece on the window will block your sunlight.
