We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, so it stands to reason that our bedroom should be optimised to promote a good night’s rest. Our bedroom is where we go to unwind at the end of a long, stressful day – it’s our most private space in our home – so this room should be a haven of tranquillity, a place where we can curl up with a good book or simply relax and unwind. It’s our sanctuary when we’re feeling unwell, and it’s our favourite place to spend a lazy Sunday morning.
Here’s a simple question: What makes a house a home? Turns out it’s not such a simple question, and perhaps there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. We need to feel free and safe in our homes and be able to escape the busyness of our lives. Our home should provide a calming environment, one where we can breathe freely and truly recharge. Either way, for most of us, there’s no place like home. Perhaps it really is a simple question and the answer is – Home is where the heart is!
Well, September 2020 is gone and it’s time to start preparing our homes for the lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer. What better inspiration could there be for summer interior styles than to look at some of the world’s most popular island holiday destinations.
We’re excited to share with you 3 island-inspired interior design styles that we’re really hooked on at the moment. We’ll also show how you can achieve these looks in your own home. Of course we have to start with our beautiful neighbouring island, Bali.
The answer to the very common question, “Are Coastal and Hamptons home styles the same?” is, “No, they are not the same.” There are some very distinct differences between these two home style trends.
And while there are differences, both these trends have seen a massive uptake in Australian design, incorporating both personal preferences and the beautiful Australian climate and lifestyle.
While both Hamptons and Coastal styles work best with clean, white canvases with neutral colour schemes, one of the main differences between these two styles is the accent colours used.
