Simply –  white works. Any room and with any style, a base of white walls or furniture is an easy and efficient way of decorating your home. It is a colour that you won’t tire of and if you decide you want to do something different its a great base coat.

2 – Leather will last

Don’t be confined within one design style or colour option. Mix up modern and vintage or industrial and Scandinavian. The style of one piece of furniture doesn’t have to dictate a whole room. Mix colours too, as long as the shades are right, a blue and pink room works, give it a go. But, don’t go overboard with the mixing!

4 – Plants brighten any room
