How to create a cohesive look in your home

There are plenty of ways to create a cohesive look, without everything having to ‘match’.

Start with the basics

Keep your large items in neutral tones, whites, greys and browns, without complicated patterns.

Follow the 60-30-10 rule for colour

· 60% of your space: walls, furniture & rugs with the main colour

· 30% of your space with a secondary colour curtains/blinds, smaller furniture items and cushions

· 10% of your space with an accent colour table lamps, artwork, accessories and throws

Odd numbers are more visually appealing

When it comes to decorating, don’t feel like everything has to be balanced or that there must be an even number of items on display.

Visually, it is actually more interesting to have pieces of different heights and odd numbers grouped together. Take photo walls for example, frames of different shapes and sizes can all work cohesively together.

Textures and patterns

Add interest with a variety of elements making sure you bring in texture and patterns.

When it comes to texture, consider both the rough and smooth options. It is good to have a mixture of both, to provide visual contrast.
