If you're thinking of redesigning your home, follow these tips to help you get the interiors of your dreams
1. You should feel proud and confident in your home and be happy with what you have accomplished. If you don't straight away, give yourself the time to live in your space, to make sure you can find out what does and doesn’t work for you.
2. The golden rule is making sure your home reflects your personality. Everything should have a connection to you and reflect your experiences - don't feel you need to be a slave to current trends and fads.
3. Be bold - dare to mix the patterns and colours. There are no strict rules on how you can combine patterns so if you think it works in the space, that will be fine. That way, you can make sure you are surrounded by exactly what you like.
4. If you are thinking of asking a professional, be ready to listen to new ideas. They will ascertain your personality, and a good designer can encourage you to go a little bolder.
