What do we mean by the look ?
"I think itís got to do with how it makes us feel."
What is style? Do we mean style as in Art Deco or Gothic or do we mean
Stylish is another thing altogether.
They say youíve either got or you havenít got style.
"Well I think weíve all got our own style."
Itís about what we like, and how we put it together and it should make
us feel good.

as yes I like it. More a case of yes I like it, but what will I do with it?.

Contents have to be best placed in the space but the contents you choose
say a lot about you.
Never buy something youíre not sure about.
Always wait. Impulse buys can be great when you just know you love

There are no rules about taste! For every look there will be someone who
loves it and someone who hates it.
Use the space you are in to its best advantage. Donít try to make a
small room look like a palace with grand pieces and much
overdoing of fabric treatments.
In a simple room simple usually works best. Keep grand for the grand
Hi tech or traditional, work with the space and be yourself.
If you have absolutely no faith in your own judgement then pick a style
and copy it.
