Home Decorating and Styling Tips

By: Michelle Dinsmore, Head – Visual Merchandising, Home Centre


Latest Tableware Trend

  • If you like simple and clean tableware – use monochrome tableware in grey and white with marble, concrete, glass and stainless steel for a modern look.
  • Layer a table setting with stainless steel chargers with crisp white plates and geometric table linens to complete this sleek look.
  • Natural and organic is also a fun trend to make your table look and feel like a moment from a lovely alfresco Tuscan dinner.
  • Accent your table with natural wood serving dishes and adorn each place setting with mini wreaths.
  • To complete the look, use glass vases filled with flowers with greens tones or simply filled with branches or large leaf stems.


The Right Seating for any Occasion

  1. To give yourliving room a warm and welcoming feel use subtle wall colors like light shades of coral, glossy ivory, light cyan and combine it with contrasting furniture.
  2. To accommodate extra people add benches or stools. Decorative stools can also be used as small side tables as well.
  3. Turn a boring seating area into a trend worthy space by add a rug with geometric patterns in bright colors.
  4. Switch out those bright-high watt bulbs with lower watts to create a soft glow for evening gatherings.
  5. Plants and flowers always brighten a dull seating area by adding texture and pops of colour.


Wall Art

  • Layer your favorite photos and paintings on a window ledge or shelf above a sofa.
  • Create a conversation starter with wall art that reflects something personal – collection of vintage airplane stamps from around the world or black and white photos from your travels.
  • Use your favorite quote in a large oversized frame to create art and daily inspiration.
  • Select frames of different metals and woods to create an eclectic and energetic look.
  • Use paint to create wall art by painting large horizontal strips in tones of blue or teal. This is easy and makes a small room look bigger.
