EXPLORING THE INSPIRATIONAL; THE INTERIOR DESIGN & STYLE BLOG BY SARAH MAILER

Holiday House London - Following the beautiful runner up the stairs, Fiona Barratt Interiors's 'Curated Design' living room caught my eye immediately. A generous, light-filled space with a great sense of flow, it was finished to the highest of standards.

Gold has certainly taken the reigns as hardware hero. Gold accents add a gorgeous glow so if you possess a greyed-out or monochromatic space (or love a desaturated outfit), I urge you to introduce a little gold. It really will uncover a new dimension. Whether its some shiny brass buttons on a blazer or a few choice home accessories, even a touch of gold can change the status of an outfit of an interior scheme from mediocre to outstanding...
