Get The Look: Timeless Style
In today’s property market, it’s never been more important to stand out from the pack. Making a lasting impression is crucial, and this means understanding what colours, materials and accessories you need to give your home timeless style.
We reveal just how simple transforming any home can be. Follow our step-by-step guide to styling each room of the house, with budget friendly tips guaranteed to make a big impact, without breaking the bank.
DINING ROOM: GO ALL OUT
The dining room is a transient space, meaning the bolder the better. Take a few risks with your interiors here, and opt for colours and accessories with big impact.
Make a dramatic statement by creating a feature wall, using paint or wallpaper. We recommend installing wainscoting to add instant architecture and contrast to the space. On trend, this season is wooden panelling in white, grey or black, paired with an eye-catching feature colour above.
Hang overhead pendants to draw the eye up, and choose metallic light fixtures to add instant yet affordable glam. Be brave and mix clashing lighting styles for a daring, eclectic look.
NESTLE INTO THE LIVING ROOM
Layering is a must in any living space. Pick a palette to inform the rest of your decor choices, guaranteed to give visual consistency to the entire room.
Keeping with shades in the same tonal family achieves a tailored and stylish look. Block colours (those that are opposite on the colour wheel) ensure a warm and inviting room, making it easy to transform and update your interiors seasonally.
Trending now are Scandi pastels in soft pinks, charcoals and light blues, or go bold with deep tones of burnt orange, cobalt and emerald that are perfect in velvets. We recommend matching cushions to a feature artwork to create a striking custom colour scheme.
FEEL SNUG & STYLISH IN THE BEDROOM
We’re said to spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping. In that case, the bedroom is an important space to get styling!
Create a warm and welcoming sleep sanctuary by adding plenty of soft furnishings. Scatter cushions in groupings of 3, and match colours with throws at the foot of the bed.
Grab attention with a custom headboard, the perfect weekend DIY project. Head to your local Bunnings and craft stores for the right size MDF board, fabric and a glue gun. A headboard will finish a room and we suggest keeping it neutral, taupe, charcoal grey or linen, then the feature cushions and throw can be the punch of colour.
ADD A LITTLE LUXE IN THE BATHROOM
Here’s where materials really matter. Give any bathroom a complete makeover with the addition of metallic and marble finishes.
Our budget-friendly tip is to check out Kmart for the best range of inexpensive metallic accessories like scented candles, gold soap bowls and hanging light pendants.
Simple tricks like updating tapware to matte black or rose gold make for a modern, on trend statement. Add pops of colour with towels and flowers that contrast against a neutral backdrop to complete a luxurious and inviting atmosphere.
THE KITCHEN: IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL
When it comes to the kitchen, stick with natural tones for big-ticket items. Not only does this increase potential resale appeal and overall longevity, but acts as the perfect canvas to add seasonal accents.
Choose counter tops in light shades, and accessorise with new door handles in gold or brass. Create visual interest with funky appliances like Smeg fridges, Delongi kettles and toasters plus vintage-inspired mixers in bright pastels.
