STYLING SESSIONS @threebirdshq

It’s no secret that styling is my passion. It really is the icing on the cake of your reno and you want it to be like fancy fondant, not melted buttercream! There’s no place for one of those sarcastic “Nailed it” memes when it comes to styling a reno.

Before you rush straight in, here are a few things to consider when styling a room. And what we did when styling our office:

HOW TO STYLE YOUR LOUNGE ROOM FROM TOP TO TOE WITH FREEDOM

Do you have Champagne taste on a prosecco budget? #ustoo 

We hear you, gang! Sometimes when we’re renovating it seems like there’s a constanbattle against the budget, but when it comes to styling your home you don’t need to fret. 

We’re big fans of freedom for furnishings because they’ve got a huge range of gorgeous products that won’t break the bank. 

Watch how Bonnie styled the lounge in House 9, from sofas to sideboards, console tables, rugs and ba-zillions of cushions, we found it all at freedom.

HOW TO CREATE A VISION BOARD FOR YOUR RENO

Renovating without a clear vision is like plonking yourself down in the swivel chair of a new hairdresser and saying, ‘Do whatever you want.’ Chances are you’ll spend a fortune, be forced to live with something you don’t want (bangs, anyone?) and it will all end in tears.  

We start every renovation by creating a vision board.  A vision board is just a glorified mood board, right? Wrong! It’s much more than that.

DON'T MAKE THIS DECISION LATE!

Setting yourself up for a successful reno is all about how you manage the process. And hiring the right people for your reno is SO essential – it’s the magic that enables us to complete our renos quickly. Believe me when I tell you it’s a hell of a lot easier to spend extra time during the hiring process to find the right person than it is to get the wrong person to do a good job

HOW TO INCORPORATE ETHNIC FURNITURE INTO YOUR SPACE

Many of us are apprehensive about adding ethnic furniture to our space, for fear of things ending up too ‘boho’. In the latest Three Birds renovation, Bonnie shows us how adding some ethnic pieces, in a neutral palette, can take a room to the next level, and compliment a range of décor styles, especially her amazing ‘coastal barn’ home.

LANA'S FAVE ROOM: BONNIE'S ADULT'S RETREAT

So, we were chatting the other day and Bonnie went and dropped the BIG question. What’s my favourite room in her dream home? That’s a pretty tough one… like who’s your favourite child or what’s your favourite meal. Ask me next week and I’m sure my answer will be different to today! Hang on, make it pizza, cold pizza… even it’s bad it’s good.

HOW TO CREATE PLAYFUL KIDS ROOMS (THAT ADULTS WILL LOVE TOO!)

Have you ever seen a gorgeously styled home and then you get to the kids’ bedrooms and they’re a bit of an… ummm, well… #eyesore #bestclosethedoor?! 

Not in Bonnie’s dream home! #nowayrose Once again, she’s knocked it out of the ballpark with her styling. This time with the bedrooms for her four boys. The kids love them as much as the adults… so, how did she get it so right?

I asked her to spill the beans ….

SUPERSTYLIN' THE MOST USED ROOM IN OUR HOUSE

The main living room is always going to be the most used room in our house. It’s a gorgeous open space, surrounded by so much natural light. Yeah, so much that my Mum insists on wearing her sunglasses while she relaxes on the lounge. 

I wanted this room to be totally casual and inviting, but totally chic.  Think relaxed but luxe… that’s a thing, right? Let’s call it ‘re-luxe’… sounds a bit like reflux. Urgh, no. But you get what I mean! This room needs to be comfy enough to relax in but durable enough for boys of all sizes to throw themselves on the lounge, put their feet up and relax while we watch a movie.

HOW WE TACKLED OUR BIGGEST STYLING CHALLENGE TO DATE

The living space/media room on the middle level was a tough nut to crack from a styling perspective. We chose the gorgeous teal couch (from BoConcept) very early in the reno and knew it was going to pack a punch in that room. What we didn't realise was how difficult it was going to be to add all the other pieces around it without overloading the room with too many things to look at.
