Creating a contemporary styled home on a budget is achievable with the right advice and products. Tarina Lyell from Oh.Eight.Oh.Nine is Mocka’s July Stylist of the Month and shows you how she has created beautiful spaces in her home using Mocka products.
Simple but functional, a Jimmy Stand and Jimmy Tower are two affordable pieces that can easily be moved around the home and styled repeatedly with various décor, plants and homewares. Tarina suggests using these storage pieces to fill an empty corner in your home instead of filling the space with a floor lamp or occasional chair. The most wonderful design aspect of the Jimmy Stand and Tower is that it can be styled to suit any theme or colour palette. If you want to change the style of your room, instead of purchasing a new piece of furniture, simply change the décor on the stand.
To create interesting aspects to your home décor Tarina suggests using a variety of shapes and textures to capture attention and add depth to a room. Tarina scatters her three Marble Stone Cushions around her home to add texture to each space and to create contrasting shapes amongst her square and rectangle cushions.
Adding a fun element to her home, Tarina uses her stylish Keyboard Stools as multipurpose pieces that she can move around the home and use when required. These functional stools can be used as a seat, stool or side table. Tarina uses hers as a side table during nursing and a seat when bathing and feeding her baby.
Working as an interior stylist Tarina saw the potential in using the Jesse Low Sideboard as a bed end to match her Jesse Bedside Cabinets. This wonderful idea works beautifully with a queen size bed. You can add decorative pieces to the top of the sideboard and store additional cushions and blankets in the drawers. This alternative way to style the Jesse Low Sideboard transforms the room and adds an elegant touch to the space.
