By Guest Styler | 9th April 2019

As we transition into a new season, it’s time to give our homes a bit of a refresh and deck out a room or two with some brand new pieces. Whether you’re going all out with a brand new couch and entertainment unit, or just want to swap out a few cushions and décor items, we’ve got the lowdown on exactly what you need to transform your home. We’ve chosen our four favourite trends to incorporate into your home, so whether you want a blush and gold sitting room, or a Hamptons style bedroom, Skygate Home & Life has just the thing for your home.

James Lane Cannes armchair $399 Lighting Illusions 56” Trident DC ceiling fan with remote $499 Lighting Illusions Telbix Kendall 6 Light pendant light $959 OZ Design Furniture Lyon buffet $1699 Pillow Talk Among The Leopards wall art $169.95 Nick Scali Campaign image


Give your living spaces that ultimate luxe feel with touches of rich burgundy, sparkling gold, and blush pink. This trend is everywhere right now, and it’s pretty obvious as to why. These colours exude luxury and elegance when paired together, and can lift a dull space almost instantly. Go bold or go home with statement cushions on the couch, extravagant mirrors on the wall, and finishing touches on your buffet, desk, or dining table that give real personality to a space, and give the room a luxurious vibe that wows anyone who walks in. Think a wall sconce is too extravagant for your home? Never! We’re crushing over this ornate design from Lighting Illusions. And don’t forget the smaller members of your household. We think your pooch will look oh so fancy in this plush dog bed from Early Settler.

Bold, sophisticated and effortlessly chic, a monochromatic design is synonymous with luxury. Investing in an elegant, plush lounge suite will serve as the focal point of the room, anchoring each of the surrounding elements and providing a deeply relaxing haven to return home to. Introducing a framed print is also a simple way to bring dimension to the room, before adding an extra layer of indulgence and character with a statement furniture piece – we’re loving the James Lane Cannes armchair! Our balmy, Brisbane climate has always lent itself to the necessity for fans, the difference is nowadays we have stylish alternatives to adorn our ceilings, cinching the room together perfectly with some moody, pendant lighting.

Interlacing coastal-inspired décor with luxurious statement pieces is the essence of Hamptons interior design. Taking inspiration from this relaxed yet sophisticated lifestyle, Brisbane homes could be described in the same vein; incorporating white-washed furniture, natural textures and neutral tones with glimpses of vivid colour. We love nothing more than stepping into an inner-city oasis, only to be greeted by a lavish off-white linen lounge peppered with textured cushions and throws, adding that extra layer of comfort.

Crafted out of mango wood, it’s a must-have piece this season, and pairs perfectly with wood and linen, staples of our coastal culture.
