Creating a Calm, Inviting Space in my installation at St Lucia
Hello all! I hope everyone has been keeping busy and enlivened with creativity and expression. We have been busy here at Blake & Taylor running all of our fantastic workshops. It is so fun to watch the excitement of our attendees as they adopt new skills and feel a new sense of confidence in what they can create.
I have been keeping busy as well (both my hands and my soul) with home styling commissions. Nothing gets me more excited than to re-imagine a living space, and add some life and colour. The way a space is put together and the atmosphere it creates can so greatly affect our mood. Styling a home means more to me than just shopping for throw pillows – it means giving the gift of breath and life to a space that someone inhabits. It means joy, safety, calm and serenity. Styling is not a frivolous, but rather a necessary activity. Does anyone else agree?
On that note, I am excited to share with you another beautiful installation I have recently completed for one of my lovely clients. It was such a pleasure to style this apartment including dining room, bedrooms and lounge space.
I had a fabulous time curating each of the soft furnishings as well as sourcing the mirrors and lamps. Another task I enjoyed (which I will never get enough of) was playing around with floral arrangements and greenery to complement the interior.
