styling is not a great science – a minimum of for me! however there are some tips i exploit to get it good.

1. lay the entirety out in one spot so you’ll see the entirety it’s a must to paintings with.

2. paintings with unusual numbers. stacks of books, vases, and even simply one higher merchandise really feel higher when there’s 1, 3, or 5.

3. be aware of peak of the pieces and range it left to proper and up and down. as an example, three occasions i used one accent on its own however i made positive to not position them each at the perfect cabinets, particularly since they were not a couple.

4. discover a colour palette and persist with it. right here i did a large number of pastels but in addition integrated some darker equipment to flooring the entirety.

5. evidence of existence (to thieve a word from alyssa rosenheck!). greenery is a should and all the time makes no matter you are looking at really feel alive – pun supposed 😉
