The secret styling tip for adding personality to your home that you need to know!


There’s a simple, yet effective way to add personality to your home – and we show you what is it with this week’s #StylistsArmy instagram posts.

One of the most common questions I’m asked as an interior designer is ‘How can I make my home stand out and reflect my personality?’ (Actually the most common question is probably ‘Is your home perfect with every room exactly as you want it?’ The quick answer – no, I have small people running about the place (!) also we need to save money and wait to decorate our home bit by bit as and when we can). Anyhow, I digress, back to the original question. How can you add personality to your home and make it uniquely ‘you’? Through your accessories – or in the interior styling world, through our props!

This week our interior stylists, writers and styling assistants show us how to style beautiful props in your home in order to add detail, interest and just general gorgeousness! As I’m sure you can imagine, it can be quite easy to become ever-so-slightly obsessed with collecting beautiful items such as colourful glassware or vintage cameras to style in your living spaces. (Ahem, guilty). So take care and don’t say we didn’t warn you 😉
