This is a lot of trial and error. Don’t be afraid to play around with patterns, colours, textures, and sizes. Mixing and matching different styles of furniture is a great way for you to start with especially when you’re still trying to develop a taste for design.
For starters, you can try to base all your details around one piece of furniture like a couch. From there, you can start adding or removing details to mix and match with your couch. Make sure everything compliments and blends well together as if all the furniture is co-existing. The main goal is to make sure that your space feels right for you.
Keep it Simple

Always keep it simple. In order for you not to get overwhelmed, it is best to use furniture with simple shapes, clean lines, classic styles. This neat approach works so well in all designs!
Go Au Naturale
Bring the outdoors in by allowing natural tones and materials like timber, leather, cotton, wool and linen in your interiors. Natural materials are a classic interior theme and look good no matter the style, the season or current trends. Look for pieces that have contemporary natural-looking frames and upholstery in complementing colours for a piece that stands out from the room.
Is it Comfy?
It all boils down to making sure that the space you are styling also gives comfort. It is important to take note that no matter how beautiful your space has transformed, comfort is essential. Because after a long day’s work, there’s nothing more fulfilling than to rest on a comfy space with really pretty styling.
