# First off, you need to gather all the things you love, your very own collection of stuff. This could be flowers, sculptures, paintings, prints, books, lamps etc.
# Forget about trends and follow your heart. Your "stuff" is what you love so who cares if its not someone elses cup of tea. Like I've said before, your home should be filled with the things you love, things that showcase your unique personality.

# Never have everything on one level, play with heights:

# Layer, do not line up everything in a straight row. Place objects in front of others. Layers will bring a space alive.

# Restrict the colour palette, too many colours can be too much:

# Variety in texture and scale is best.
# Forget about perfect symmetry, play with assymetry, this will create interest rather than being static and uptight.
# Add something quirky, just to make it that much more interesting:

# Think outside the box. The more risks you take, the more amazing a space will look.

I hope i have inspired you. Happy styling friends!
