Megan Smith’s home shows off carefully selected pieces, which she has collected over the years. Megan and her husband, Wayne, share an appreciation for the mid-1900′s and Art Deco furniture, within a contemporary setting. Taking her cue from the stylish simplicity of Scandinavian interiors, Megan has incorporated this philosophy into her home, adding her own South African twist.
Megan’s top tips for a stylish home:
Keep things simple but personal.
Choose well-crafted items and invest in unique long-term pieces that you really love and can pass on as heirlooms. Combine these with less expensive trendy items.
Rotate your smaller décor items by packing them away or relocating them to different rooms to keep the space fresh. You don’t have to have everything you own on show!
- Megan takes Coco Chanel’s wise words to heart: ‘Before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror and take one thing off.’ This rationale can be applied to an interior as well; once you’ve styled a room, take an objective look around and remove anything that distracts the eye.
