Shaynna Blaze Shares her Best Design Advice

We spoke to Shaynna Blaze to find out her favourite trends and what we can expect from her new show!

Ahead of the premiere of Deadline Design with Shaynna Blaze, we sat down with the host to find out what gets her design gears in motion.

Find out what inspires one of Australia's best known interior designers, and the watch the video for her very best advice. 

Q: What is the best design advice you've ever received?

The best design advice I’ve received is 'bring joy'. Bring joy to your home.

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

I’m a big fan of black and white because I love the strength and  I love its chameleon qualities - that you can play it down and really dress it up as much as you want.

My interior has to be classic so it’s malleable but, at the same time, there’s always a hidden quirk in there because you’ve got to laugh!

Q: What's the trend you're loving right now?

The trend I’m loving right now is mixed metals.

We were so caught up in ‘brass is dead and chrome is king’, and now we have chrome, copper, we have rose gold, we have gun metal and you can put them all in the same room.

That’s what I’m loving at the moment – that you can make a sophisticated palette out of eclectic materials.

Q: What's your design motto?

Form follows function.

Q: What's your best tip for people who are afraid to go bold in their design choices?

People have so much fear of going bold because they think, ‘what if I make a mistake?’

So what? So what if you make a mistake? Just don’t make the expensive mistakes first!

Go bold with pattern on a cushion, go bold with pattern on a rug, go bold with the colour on your walls… They’re very inexpensive to do but also to change. Take baby steps in being bold. You don’t have to do a whole room or a whole house bold.
