Best styling tips to avoid mistakes - Oceanus Design Co


When there are a lot of tiny accessories and clutter on bookshelves, on coffee tables, buffets, benches etc. it can quickly make things look cluttered, messy and random. Try to break up all the small items by adding the larger items into baskets, boxes, large vases, bowls, etc. It always helps to related theme items with trays and to group small items together, assists in flowing the style and theme throughout.

Large accessories and home-wares are substantial and grounding, but their grand scale can bring out the smaller items in your home.


If you love a particular material not every item needs to be the same type of material. We love to mix things up, use natural elements with sleek metals and vice versa. This is the look! Try and use soften metallics with natural items such as glass, concrete, woven, rattan, or other natural materials brings great balance.


Whether you’re decorating on a tabletop, bench top or filling a shelf, thinking in terms of shapes as this will help with the flow. Change the angles of boxes, books with vases and decorative and other items. Do you have too many small objects? Easy… stack books or use a tray to confine the pieces in the one space to gather. Don’t be shy to hang plant pots or similar to create dimension and character to your space.


Your space must show your personality. Aim more on what you love rather than what is “in or out of style.” Avoid buying different versions of the same piece just because you love that look. Find a few different items that really catch your eye in that moment to suit your design, incorporate timeless items too. This will help you not get tired of the same look or in trend style.
