Hugely excited about a feature running in the NY Times today on a stunning apartment we designed – my sister’s pad no less with a miniscule budget.  As I’ve said a zillion times before style has absolutely nothing to with money.

Creating a home that makes you happy

Its one of the hardest looks to pull off the eclectic look purely because you are not following a formula. Its all about pulling together an unrestrained combination of touches and they key is to pick a binding element that holds it all together – that could be colour, texture, a theme. So pull together personal belongings think as quirky as possible and mix and match with aplomb.

Below is a bathroom filled to the brim with eclectic pieces that automatically make you smile. Its personal its quirky and anthing but static. The binding element here is a unrestrained combination  of feminine textures – its layer upon layer of gorgeousness!

Take a room from ordinaire to extraordinaire

It’s the finishing touches that add the va -va – voom to one’s pad. By opting for some groovy looking items which have been turned on their head with some outlandish punches of colour you can enliven your space in a nano second. Forget anything beige or magnolia or cream the more eccentric your choices the better. Think groovy, think wow factor and think fun. Take a leap of faith and throw out anything you don’t love. Fill your dream house with groovy elements that shout instant Hollywood glamour, none of which needs to cost the earth. Habitat below has done a wondrous job of enlivening an occasional table with a serious dose of colour.  At the higher end of scale B&B Italia have turned a very ordinary side table into an extraordinary side table by colouring it canary yellow! Of course anything at home can be given the Girls Guide makeover by spraying a fabulous colour – it will invigorate you and make you far happier than any cup of coffee – promise!Rivoli Occasioanal Table - Habitat Frank Table (Antonio Citterio) B&B Italia
