My Interpretation of Elegant Decorating
About my home-decorating influence:
I've a thing for classic styles. If I have a limited budget, I'll furnish with refurbished furniture and decorative items in flea markets, 2nd-hand stores and Ikea. I'll use a unified colour palette and stick to fabrics. The look tends to have a soft uncluttered english country home feel. One of my favourite designers of this look is Rachel Ashwell.
If I were working with a larger budget, I'd focus on main items of a room and invest in a more distinguished look, like in an elegant old boutique hotel in Europe. The pieces would be solid and limited in an area of space. I'll ensure all the needed-clutter of children or work goes into the private rooms!
