Zoe Gilpin is a Perth based, qualified interior decorator who over the years has worked as a visual merchandiser and property stylist. These days as a mother of two, she owns and operates The DIY Decorator, an e-design decorating studio which means all of her work is carried out via online consultations and mood boards.
"I am very fortunate to be able to work from home as an e-designer, whilst also sharing my own home decorating photos and bargain finds with my followers. I love working with clients with smaller budgets, showing them that you can get the look for less. I often say that we live in the age of affordable living. Meaning that now everyone, even those with smaller budgets, can have their homes looking magazine worthy" - Zoe Gilpin
My own personal style is very neutral. I tend to use a lot of colour in client's homes which I love, but in my own home I like a calm and relaxing vibe without the use of colour. I love using natural timbers with white and natural tones. In my home I combine affordable furniture and homeware pieces with second hand finds to create my own personal style. Because I use such a neutral palette, I like to use plenty of textured pieces as well as indoor plants.
The Penny fabric accent chair. A piece which suits so many interior styles from Scandi to Mid Century.
I would style the Penny accent chair with a darker timber side table to create a small sitting area. Perfect for a living area, bedroom or study. To complement the furniture pieces and to add in some warmth and texture, I would add two scatter cushions to the chair, as well as a table lamp and decorative coral piece. Add in a real or artificial large plant in a basket and you've created the perfect relax zone for your home.
I am loving sage green and dusty pink tones at the moment. They are colours that work well on their own and also together. They are tones suited to many styles of interior whilst also working well for both summer and winter decorating. I love the use of these colours as a bold statement via wall colour or feature tiles. Or also in a more subtle way via soft furnishings and textiles.
