Styling Tips

When creating your displays, try to create a sense of balance and proportion. Avoid having items of a similar height close together which causes visual conflict… if the two heights compete you are better to create a definite contrast in height by separating them and placing a smaller complementing piece with the taller item.

Combine candle light with floral arrangements and dim the overhead lighting to create an intimate and sensual ambiance.

Create stunning optical illusions and effectively double the impact your decorations by placing your table centrepiece on a mirror… you’ll see twice as many flowers and candles!

When planning your styling, try to keep a harmonious thread running through your scheme.  Keep it simple!  Most times more is just too much.

Attention to detail is important, but remember, too much detail can lead to a busy room with nowhere for the eye to rest.

Quality not quantity. A few carefully selected pieces are much more eye catching than a poorly presented mass of low quality decorator items.

Create different levels in your centrepiece displays by using footed votives to draw the eye up and away from the table.

Scented candles or aroma reeds in the bathrooms create a pleasant atmosphere for your guests to freshen up.

Change the shape or size of large rooms using screens or drapes, also an excellent way to hide architectural or interior design eyesores.

If in doubt, seek professional advice. Quickly!
