Universal Rules For Styling Your Home

There are a few rules that are guaranteed to make every interior space look better. 

Whatever your space, think first about how you want it to feel before you start adding furniture. 

Also, never forget the golden rule: less is often more.

Follow these tips to become a styling pro:


When dealing with a small room, don't overcrowd it with large or bulky furniture. The appearance of space is essential.


Create balance through furniture and accessories. Don't make everything too vibrant or bold, but similarly, don't shy away from statement pieces - just balance them out.


Even big areas can look stuffed - make sure you get the spacing right.


Formal rooms are about straight lines, squares and rectangles, while curves and circles are the way to go in informal spaces.
