Achieving the Show Home Look


Have you ever taken a tour around a Show Home and come away wanting that pristine, beautifully-decorated look in your own home? Well you certainly can, provided you know the tricks of the trade.

Focus on symmetry

Achieving symmetry will go a long way in getting that show home look. Cushions should be kept symmetrical and accessories should be grouped in threes within a room.

Choose your fabrics wisely

The right fabrics, in things like cushions, headboards and sofas, instantly elevate a room to that next level of luxury.

Turn a small space into an office

Do you have an unused small space in your home? Why not turn it into an office? Place a narrow desk and a funky chair with wall hanging storage for an instant work area.

Make your bed!

A well-made bed will instantly give you the ‘Show Home’ look. Tuck in all sheets and duvets, spread out a few throws and add an array of cushions in matching colours. This ensures your bed is looking neat, tidy and elegant before leaving the room.

Keep the walls neutral

Select neutral tones on your walls, such as taupe or mid grey, to complement other features you might have, including feature walls, accessories and framed images. These not only add style and personality but can be replaced easily in years to come.

Less is more

It’s easy to go overboard when trying to achieve a Show Home style; focus on being selective when styling a room, displaying luxury objects and pieces that look great and draw the eye in. With accessories however, only opt for those which are useful and make it feel more like a home.
