‘I’m currently a huge fan of “more is more” when it comes to photos and prints in the home. Grouping together two or three leaning framed prints against a wall-mounted image will create a cluster of colour, pattern and interest – perfect for a feature wall and a fantastic way to make a focal point in any room. My personal preference for materials is always a matt paper for maximum subtlety and to allow the image to really stand out on its own merit.

Artwork can also be a really useful point of reference when styling a room – take one or more colours from a piece of art and then “thread” these throughout your room scheme as accent colours using accessories such as textiles and ceramics to create a cohesive colour scheme. 

My design picks are largely based upon the theme of foliage and greenery, which can help to promote calm and a sense of wellbeing in the home. I’ve also punctuated these choices with some strong graphic posters, incorporating the art of typography and illustration – great for making a statement!’
