We all know the value of a few well-placed pieces to really make a room ‘pop’. A really great cushion, rug, art-piece or a statement chair can make all the difference but where to start? Choosing pieces to pull a room together can be stressful especially if your talents lie elsewhere. Perhaps we lack the confidence to back our style choices, or maybe we just concede that some people are born to style…and we want to bask in their glory.

Here’s some tips that may be helpful:

Large pieces are best in neutral colours.

Keeping to a palette of neutral colours to form an anchor for your other pieces is a safe option. Sofas in colours like grey, white, navy or soft greens allow you to add accessories without them fighting. Natural wood finishes and subtle use of metallic pieces can also enhance and compliment.

Choose one or two feature pieces per room max.

Whether it be a really great rug, or a striking chair or a fabulous chandelier; keep these under control to avoid over saucing the pudding.

Add beautiful accessories.

Candles are never out of place as they add warmth, relaxation and ambience to any room. A great coffee table book, or a group of well-chosen photo frames will personalise any space.

Cushions can complement or make it pop.

Cushions have returned en masse and are perfect for adding a splash of colour or as a compliment to the tone of the room – have fun with patterns and textures.

We all know the benefits of a properly styled room but for some of us this is one step beyond our abilities…and that’s OK! Some clever creative people out there have come up with a great concept, and I have a feeling it’s going to catch on. Nathan + Jac is an online concept created by mother and daughter team Tammy Nathan and Jac Zarkovic. Carefully chosen accessories made up of beautifully selected pieces are available to purchase as an entire look or individually so all the styling has been done for you.
