PICK A UNIQUE THEME
Another way to mix and match furniture styles with ease is to envision a theme. Having visual points of reference helps keep your overall theme on track.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
It's easy to throw in furniture together, but a space starts to become really thoughtfully curated when you know the provenance of items and their meaning in design history. Knowing how pieces coexist in design history will help you tie in the pieces together using color palettes or materials.
PAY ATTENTION TO SCALE
Learn how to play with the scale of objects. Scale refers to proportion and the comparative size of objects in a space. Dainty objects, such as a coffee table, tend to look good next to heavier ones, like a round pedestal side table and the fringed velvet sofa. It's all about achieving balance.
BALANCE DIFFERENT MATERIALS
The same way you should pay attention to scale, you should also look to balance the different materials in the room so as to not end up with a room full of mid-brown wood tones. Thinking of materials in terms of contrasts will help in creating a layered space.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you all for the hard work, dedication, commitment and enthusiasm each and every one of you individually and collectively displayed to make the Durban July the spectacular event it was!
Collectively we are a great team and there is no supplier to Beluga Hospitality, only partnerships – together we created an environment where our clients could enjoy themselves and leave with lasting memories of a spectacular occasion – an event is only a success where you can relive the day well after the event and I believe, for the most part, our clients have already relived the day and have fond memories!!
Thanks again one and all and we look forward to an even better Durban July in 2019!!
Grant Wilson, Director of Beluga Hospitality
