Tip 1: Clear and declutter
Firstly clear out whatever you might have in that area unless there is something you definitely want to keep there like a beautiful console table or a lovely sculpture or vase.
Tip 2: Take a step back
I always like to sit back from the space and just look at it for a while once its cleared out and empty and see what I feel could really work in the space and the likely size of whatever it is that I might want to place there,
Tip 3: Inspiration
Inspiration is so important for me before deciding what texture and colour I’m going to use and I am inspired by so many things, I love looking at different metals and stones I have in my library and putting them against different fabrics and then taking what I have fallen in love with to the space and seeing if it looks and feels right before picking any one specific. I might even just be inspired by a sculpture or item that I definitely want to keep in the space and then take it from there.
