Get the look: The easy way to home in on boutique chic
The trendy new houses popping up all over Northern Ireland offer plenty of interior inspiration even for those who think they don’t have a talent for creating a fashionable home.
And the interiors team behind the new boutique chic homes at Lisnisky Lane in Portadown have shared their secrets with Homefinder to show how you can create the look in your own pad.
“The overall look of Lisnisky Walk reflects the style of the homes; contemporary, affordable and aimed at young professionals or first time buyers,” said Cathy Delaney from Lisnasure Interiors.
“As with any show home it’s important to create a series of looks that will appeal to a wide audience as no two people have the same taste when it comes to their ideal home.”
If you are the proud owner of a new pad or want to transform your home over the summer months then take note.
“When it comes to colour, we would always advise starting with a neutral palette or area in every room; sofas, walls or even curtains are always a good starting point,” added Cathy. “From here you can add splashes of colour and patterns through wallpaper, curtains and accessories.
“At Lisnisky we used a mixture of patterned wallpapers or accessories that became the focal point for each room. My favourite room is the French-inspired boudoir with classic white furniture along with cerise walls and its quintessentially French toile theme.
“Light is very important in any home. Invest in stylish mirrors to decorate plain walls and use lamps and feature lights to add brightness to any room. We used chandeliers throughout this development to add elegance, a touch of glamour and to bounce light back. Finally if storage is a problem, then stylish corner units are the perfect option. They can give character as well as offer storage solutions without compromising on space.”
