Tips For Pocket-Money Styling

A bit of loose change can bring so much to an interior. I love pieces with humble origins. Lots of things I use are easy to find and mostly practical. You don't need a whopping cheque book or an educated eye for art & architecture to begin creating an interior style for your home. Keep your mind open to all the possibilities.

Prints I love adorn this wall. Find your favourite image and have it printed larger at the local office supply shop for a few dollars to pin to the wall. Look for images in antique shops and market while you're away and play with them when you return. No need to wait for framing.

Chalkboards and chalkboard paint (which comes in many colours) splashed on a wall offer transient and thoughtful design opportunities. write your favourite quotes or just make a things-to-do list.

Trade secret: I always have a stash of Blu-Tack (or other brand of adhesive putty) on styling jobs or when I'm doing some redecoration as it allows me to quickly stick things up – postcards, old theatre tickets, anything on paper – and remove them without a trace when the mood takes me.
