PROPERTY & INTERIOR DESIGN

Recycle, recycle, recycle… but do it with style: * Quirky antique silver pieces work well in contemporary settings, as well as adding a touch of class to their surroundings. * Vintage Murrano and Venini pendant lights from the ‘40s onwards are affordable, yet stand out.

Be bold with furniture – especially chairs! They are so versatile and can really add a personal touch and a warmth to a room design: * Take a classic shape, e.g. a Louis XV chair and cover in an unexpected way – black patent or leopard print leather for the wow factor. * Place large chairs in prominent, yet unusual locations – for instance, the bathroom.

Bring warmth to a room through clever lighting; and the simplest way to do this is via the humble mirror – over-scaled mirrors reflect light back into a room beautifully.”
