For the Bedroom

When redesigning the bedroom, subtle tweaks, like new bedside table pieces, cool lamps, hanging frames, or small yet stylish storage solutions, can make a dramatic difference.
We love how Melbournite product stylist Katy Thomas of The Eye Spy Milk Bar styles her bedroom with a neutral colour palette, paired with a statement print bedding. The addition of metal accents, such as mod lamps, instantly creates a polished look. Moreover, the combination of hard geo-shapes and soft textures, like faux fur pillows and throws, create a perfectly balanced zone.
While mum of three and interior design guru, Simone from Honey and Fizz, says a pop of colour is a simple yet overlooked decorating tip that can add brightness and life to any living space.

Is your living room in need of an update? These budget-friendly and easy-to-boot styling tips will reward you with a relaxing retreat.
Using cool hues paired with neutral palettes, with a focus on the subtle little details, is an effortless way to create a chic and cohesive aesthetic. Add another dimension to your living room by integrating soft textures—think chunky knit cushions, faux fur throws and fluffy woollen rugs. Similarly, a cool accent lamp, grid prints and geometric silhouettes tote a contemporary vibe. We also love the use of natural motifs, such as incorporating indoor house plants with a hanging planter or plant stand, to bring in the breezy outdoors while keeping it clean and mod.
