How to style your luxury Prospect apartment

While buying a new property is one of the most exciting purchases one could make, it can be daunting trying to decide how you’re going to style the home.

If you haven’t already picked out your furniture or overall theme for your apartment at Prospect Box Hill, here’s a few key tips to ensure your new abode is on trend.

  1. Simple, minimalistic décor

After a couple of tumultuous years with COVID-19 and lockdowns, people are wanting to instil a sense of calm and keep balance within their home. This means keeping the décor simple and minimalistic, and straying from bright colours or bold designs.

How to get the look: Stick to a palette of natural, neutral colours (think beiges, whites and soft greens) and choose one stand out piece of furniture or décor to be the focal point of a room. Incorporate subtle textures and raw materials into the fold to reconnect your indoor areas with nature.

  1. 60s and 70s influence

The textures, styles and features of yesteryear have slowly been creeping their way back into the world of interior decorating, but 2022 will see home décor trends become heavily influenced by the 60s and 70s. If recalling some of the wild, tacky and whacky design trends from this era makes you cringe, then there’s good news – these are staying in the past where they belong. The décor trends reappearing from this time period are a muted, more simplified version – think gold finishes, earthy colours and wood panelling.

How to get the look: When it comes to choosing your décor, don’t be scared to incorporate the likes of rattan furniture, macrame, houseplants, shag rugs or subtle geometric patterns to get that cute, retro vibe.

  1. Incorporate the principles of Feng Shui

As mentioned in the first point, we’re all looking for a bit of calm and serenity in our lives – and incorporating the principles of feng shui into your home is one such way to achieve that. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of arranging items in an environment to achieve harmony and balance. Adopting the principles of Feng Shui in your apartment can help bring peace and prosperity in both your home and your life.

How to get the look: While there’s no crash course in feng shui, there’s simple things you can incorporate to protect the energy in your new home. Keep clutter to a minimum, burn natural scents rather than synthetic ones and ensure no mirrors are facing the main entry of your home to avoid the good energy being pushed away from your property.

  1. Style with sustainability in mind

Excessive consumerism and harming the planet is out of fashion. Sustainability on the other hand is in – and it’s here to stay for the long haul. The great thing about incorporating sustainable furniture and living practices into your home is that they not only benefit the environment, but they’re typically friendly on the hip pocket too.

How to get the look: Get creative and source your furniture from second-hand shops, Facebook marketplace or Gumtree to both save money and the planet. If you’ve got some furniture that you want to keep but you’re not fond of the look, look at upcycling it with a coat of paint or a reupholstery job.  Another sustainable way to style your home  is to avoid purchasing anything made of plastic or resin as these materials cannot be easily recycled once you’re done with them.
