It’s no secret that our Fashion Ed loves to dabble in Interior Design and loves great interior inspiration! And seen as a lot of clothing designers now days are creating for the home, we only see it fair to extend our website to incorporate the fashion of interiors.
Having experience in renovating for revenue, with an end goal in mind; to create equity from a ‘space’, it has always been our Ed’s intention to create and capture a certain romantic essence – a space that sweeps you away whimsically to a pleasantly peaceful place…and so that is what Vicky has always remained true to with each renovation she has completed.
“It is easy to focus on the bottom line with interior design however, I think the art is how you incorporate the use of colour, texture and personal memoir’s. Yes, your budget can restrict you, however, it should never limit your creative flair,” Vicky says.
“Personally, I love small apartments. For a few different reasons but mainly because if you ask most property investors about investing in apartments, they’ll try to tell you that there is no equity in an inner city apartment, and quite frankly that the only investment purpose would be for rental yield and rental yield alone. Well, it is evident that I tend to disagree. You can do a lot with a 50 sqm ‘turd’. And in these posts you will come to know how you too can ‘polish the turd’.”
And with that said, nothing says romantic more than a beautiful balcony space. In a small apartment space (and basically every space) it’s almost vital to incorporate the outdoors in some way – whether by balcony, a set of binoculars for city scoping or through vivid imagery on the walls.
Here are a few shots of our favourite balconies – be it a large entertaining area with great sweeping views or a small Juliet balcony with views of foliage, every balcony has the opportunity to romantically entice through great aesthetic design and texture!
If you notice, throughout all images there is a consensual theme; being the use of plants, flowers and/or shrubs. This creates a relaxed and romantic feeling no matter the space – so if you don’t have a healthy budget, slick on some paint, tidy up and decorate with some new foliage…pots are preferable however, definitely personal and based upon the individual space. That said though, there is no doubt that these three key tips alone, will do wonders!
