• Styling your home with flair


    Kara Demmrich shares with us some ideas for home decoration and how to add designer's flair to your home.


    Home decorations can give a room a fresh new look without having to spend a fortune.  You just need to know what to choose.

    Today, I'm here at one of my favourite homeware stores to find some inspiration for your home.

    Rugs are a great way for a space to feel warm and inviting.  Start with a neutral base and work up from there.

    Katrina, tell me about your store.

    Drift is about everything that I love. Lots of natural pieces.  Lots of organic pieces.  There's locally made furniture and artwork.  There are pieces from China, Africa, India.

    I look around and I see a lot of different textures.  

    There is and that's what that's what I think gives a home personality and gives a home style.

    Cushions are a really cheap and effective way to lift a room.  I like this one because it's reversible and you get two different looks for the one price.

    What's one of your favorite pieces in the store at the moment?

    At the moment it would have to be the big cuttle fish necklaces.  They're gorgeous.  They are all handmade in Sydney. They add that texture and that organic feel to a wall and a space.

    Yes I think I want one.

    A home obviously has to look good, but it also has to smell good too, and candles are the perfect finishing touch.

    So there's plenty you can do to freshen up your home on a budget and I've got everything I need today.
