MY TIPS ON SUBTLE STYLE
You don’t have to shout to make a style statement. Here are four ideas for soft flourishes that add interest in a humble way.

A map/journal I found at a second-hand bookstore is colour photocopied and tacked on the wall. This could be divine for a celebration, or because you like it, semi-permanent or just for the day.

Brown sticky tape should be part of everyone’s styling toolkit, as it allows for instant installations, such as this star fashioned from ribbon, while the tape itself has its own humble beauty.
Improvisation can offer both low-budget and remarkable options for designing a room.

The wide steps of the ladder provide shelving, while the narrower rungs can be used for draping jewellery, scarves and other accessories.
