Alex Skyes lives in a space that combines trendy new elements with a range of vintage collectables, giving her home plenty of personality.
Alex lives with her husband, Gavin, and their teenage daughters. Alex and Gavin love vintage furniture because every piece has a story. Their collection of quirky pieces gives the home its distinctive look. As time goes by, they continue to add to their vintage furniture collection, ensuring there will be many more stories to tell.
Here are some of Alex’s style tips:
- Older pieces can easily be mixed with modern pieces, just stick to a similar colour palette.
- To make a statement in a room, carry the theme through to your colour scheme.
- Choose a stand-out piece in each room, and let it be the star of the show by keeping the rest of the decor understated
- Use the little areas around the home to create areas of interest where you can show off your fabulous decor finds.
