Bring Your Personal Style to Life in Your Home

Follow these expert tips from the hosts of I Own Australia's Best Home on how to bring personality to your property.

“If you’re trying to bring your personal style to life, be thoughtful.” – Tim Leveson

Whether you’ve been lucky enough to put a stamp onto your own place, or you’re keen to inject some style into your rental, the three homes we saw in the third episode of I Own Australia’s Best Home offer some tips on how to bring personality to your property.

1. Incorporate intimate details into your decor.

There’s nothing like putting key family moments on display. Jo’s Romantic Queenslander places the humble height chart in the spotlight, chronicling the growth of her children on a doorframe in the main hallway.

Tip: Showcase your meaningful family moments by making decor out of height charts, photos and mementos.

2. Make brave decisions.

Tony and Fiona’s Moebius Spaceage is a statement and a half! Their refusal of standard design conventions has resulted in a stunning futuristic property – inspired by a race car and the curves of a Moebius strip – that doesn’t skimp on style or functionality.

Tip: If you have a flair for the dramatic and are keen to push the boundaries, look to objects like race cars, yachts and sculptures for inspiration. And if you’re not quite ready to tackle your own build, you can invest in statement pieces like furniture and art to bring your personal style to life.

3. Go hard with art.

Given that Dan’s property used to be the home of celebrated Australian artist David Bromley, it’s no surprise that it’s like a living, breathing gallery. Dan’s sea change to Byron Bay wouldn’t be complete without the inspiration he gets from the many Bromley murals throughout the home.

Tip: Find your style soulmate. Sometimes the best way to bring your personal style to life is to think about what pieces, spaces and emotions you’re drawn to, and then replicate these within your own home.
