Interior Design 101 with Anastasia from Achieve

Arguably the most exciting part of building your dream home is envisaging the end product, waking up in your pristine bedroom, cooking dinner in your new kitchen, relaxing in front of the TV.

What you might not have thought about is how design choices will influence the way you feel in your home, and what you can do to make it feel “right” from the moment you step inside.

Anastasia, Achieve Homes’ Selection Coordinator, is our go-to for all things interior design and colour selection and provides expert advice to our proud house-owners. Here’s her top tips for helping you make your home truly yours, reflective of your personality and lifestyle.

Quality over quantity

It’s an ethos that can be applied to almost every element of your life – less is always more. Invest in the best quality furnishings, furniture and art that you can, and purge yourself of meaningless tchotchkes and trinkets that you’ve accumulated over the years. Moving into your new home is a perfect opportunity to declutter and remove those unnecessary and unused items that will just bring chaos to your space.

Form follows function

If ‘quality over quantity’ is the golden rule of design, then ‘form follows function’ is the silver rule. Having a pretty space should come secondary to making sure your home suits your lifestyle and the way you live in your space. Focus on the kitchen and bathrooms – these will be the most used public spaces in your home. While they’re the “workhorse” rooms, they should also have the “wow” factor – after all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in there. Make sure they are built to suit your needs and lifestyle.

Create a blank canvas that will grow with you

A neutral palette used throughout your home is an ideal way to ensure your home can adapt to your changing tastes and preferences over the years. Adding pops of colour is achieved with loose items like decorations, furniture and homewares – think a bright artwork in your living room, or rich coloured bedlinen adorning your bed. These items are cost effective ways to change and mix up the mood in your home when your tastes change.

Make your home your own

The devil is in the detail and these details are what will make your home feel like your sanctuary. Bring the outdoors in and add life to your home with indoors plants – they’ll add tranquillity, colour, and life into a space. Introduce items that allow you to inject your personality into your home.

Creating a flexible home will enable you to adjust your lifestyle over the coming years. By following these tips, your home will be truly “yours” for years to come.
