Like a plumber with a leaking tap, a designer’s hardest job is their own home. Honestly, we make our most difficult clients look like a breeze in comparison. Personally, when it comes to my own home (which is currently rented, adding to the dilemmas), I am faced with such indecision that I end up doing nothing at all. You see, I see so many beautiful homes, furnishings, textiles, styles, trends and every colour in between – how can I possibly choose? How can I commit to a style, when I know I’m keeping my eyes open in case something better comes along?
I think I have found the answer. I CAN HAVE IT ALL.
I can, really. And I’ve found evidence, in Jessica Helgerson’s latest interior. Here’s my checklist of my dream home – all found in the images attached.
* Neutral palette of whites and timbers, a must for all big purchases (just incase I change my mind again….)
* Moody grey / charcoal walls (ala Abigail Ahern)
* Light and airy space (a must)
* Australian / Scandi / Japanese style (in that order, mostly Aussie)
