White walls, light floors, pastels, soft oak timbers and a painted dipped furniture piece are totally floating my boat these days. It’s a perfect starting point to building an eclectic space. Key soft furnishing pieces should include pops of colour, framed art, geometric patterns and a standing lamp. There’s heap of replica furniture out there, so steer clear of this awful trend. I would either start saving now for the real deal, or check out your local antique market. Camberwell Markets in Melbourne is a perfect starting point. Find pieces that will look clean in the white wonderland you have at home; these items can look fine in the market, but when they’re in your home, the last thing you want is shabby pulley rope from a war ship that looks like it really went to sea!
