Apologises if itâs a tad early to make such a bold statement but I totally donât understand why this look is still around.Â I have just spent some time researching and there is a whole plethora of boring spaces out there.Â Conservative, predictable and boring and I just donât get why.
Homes should be glamorous, swanky, eclectic with a whole hodge podge of furniture styles going on â some historical grand gestures mixed in with modern ones. Louis armchairs upholstered in patent leather for example, Victorian cabinets sprayed tomato red and then further embellished. Itâs a look that is theatrical, tantalising a little bit cartoon but never kitsch. Its drool worthy, its irresistible and more often than not chic. Super easy to achieve just surround yourself with stuff you love and then layer it. Pile up mantles, tables, shelves and so on and your pad will take on a glorious bohemian fancy-free attitude.
