My 3 Inspiration Ideas for your January 2019

A lot of my home decor ideas are really inspired and motivated by much larger more elaborate homes. I simply appropriate them with what I can find and scale them down to fit my much smaller home. Sometimes I like what I see in a hotel lobby, or in a picture of mansion or country home on the internet. Then it's just a matter of sourcing similarly looking materials and putting it all together.


Here are my 3 simple Inspirational Ideas for you this month:


Inspiration 1: Fine Furniture.

 Getting the right furniture for this look...

Budget less than $1000 - Gumtree Search 50-100 km, terms:

"Brass and Marble Table", "Brass and Glass Table", "Rococo Style" (might also find a brass ornate mirror), "Brass" in Furniture, and "Louis XV" in Furniture. You'll be surprised how affordable this look can be to create here in Brisbane.


If you prefer to buy new, no problem, with a budget of over $3000. A shop called "European Design" in the Logan Super Center, 3523 Pacific Hwy, Slacks Creek QLD 4127 is for you. Their full range is also available to check out online http://www.europeandesign.com.au/living.html


They have stores in Fortitude Valley, Toowoomba and the Maroochydore Homemaker Centre, locations: http://www.europeandesign.com.au/store-locations.html


Inspiration 2: Natural Focal Points.

Easy to find the right materials on Gumtree to create this look...

Budget less than $200 - Gumtree Search 50-100 km, terms:

"Brass and Marble Table", "Rococo Style", "Brass" in Furniture, and "Louis XV" in Furniture. You'll be surprised how affordable this look can be to create here in Brisbane.

You'll also need 2 bowls or vases. You can either go with crystal vases or bowls, try your second hand shops like the salvos, about $20 in your pockets should be enough to pop some tags and get your the pair of matching vases or bowls to create this look. You could also go with oriental bowls, searching Gumtree.

However, should you prefer to buy new, you'll need a budget of around $1500-$2000. "European Design" in the Logan Super Center, 3523 Pacific Hwy, Slacks Creek QLD 4127 should have the side tables. Their full range is also available to check out online http://www.europeandesign.com.au/living.html

They have stores in Fortitude Valley, Toowoomba and the Maroochydore Homemaker Centre, locations: http://www.europeandesign.com.au/store-locations.html

Vases try David Jones, I personally like Wedgewood, or even DFO airport for the Bohemia crystal vase outlet shop.

Indoor plants, preferably flowering of some kind to add in some colour. I usually buy these from Bunnings, they have quite a decent range at affordable prices. Gingers, African Violets, and if you have enough light you might be able to get away with their new range of indoor/outdoor hydrangeas.


Inspiration 3: Guarded by Lights.

"Beacon Lighting" usually have this ensemble, or if you're up for spending more money and want something more shiny you can try "Lighting Illusions", or even "Lighting Empire" (34 Kingston Rd, Underwood, Logan).


However if you have Champaign tastes but soda budgets you can try Gumtree, searching for "Chandeliers". You'll probably have to do some work on these lights though. However if you find one with a good condition gold plated frame, you can just look online Ebay and order in some replacement crystal. You'll save a bundle of Cash!


Conclusion:

Put these three ideas together in the same room and you're really starting to create quite the show stopping room.


Sincerely,


Brett Plagens
