Interior styling is the art of curating and arranging elements within a space to create a visually appealing and harmonious environment.

It involves selecting and arranging furniture, accessories, colors, textures, and lighting to reflect a specific design theme or aesthetic.

Interior stylists use their creativity and knowledge of design principles to transform spaces, creating a mood or atmosphere that suits the client's preferences and functional requirements.

Through careful consideration of space, proportion, balance, and harmony, interior stylists create cohesive and visually striking interiors that evoke a desired ambiance.

Successful interior styling combines functionality and aesthetics, enhancing the overall experience and creating a space that is not only visually pleasing but also reflects the personality and lifestyle of the occupants.

Interior stylists work across a variety of projects from residential interiors to commercial projects such as restaurants, hotels and show homes. Their skills can take them into other areas such as displays for homeware retailers, interior photo shoots and event styling.

Hence, we can see that, 'Interior Styling' is the art of curating furnishings, textures, finishes, lighting and accessories, amongst a plethora of contemporary and antique products.
