Sarah Gibson is the brains behind one of our favourite lifestyle blogs Room for Tuesday – a forum for Sarah to showcase her passion for unique interiors, styling and design. Sarah’s effortlessly chic home does not disappoint. With colourful statement wallpaper and mid century influences that contrast with more contemporary pieces – Sarah has well and truly mastered eclectic in the home.
Here, Sarah tells us why we shouldn’t be afraid to ‘layer and mix’ by incorporating vintage into a living space. A girl after our own heart…
What is your blog in a nutshell?
Room for Tuesday is a lifestyle blog that offers inspiration and curated content in interiors and styling, travel, food, entertainment, and fashion.
What is your top design tip?
Don’t be afraid to layer and mix! A lot of people believe their space won’t look cohesive if they stray from a certain style. I actually believe the contrary- a room is always more interesting when there are new and vintage pieces of varying styles. Whether they’re high-end, low-end or even heirloom, it’s all about balance. I would also encourage layering and the addition of textiles and art to create depth and dimension.
What do you think is the next big interiors trend and why?
Natural materials. I just had a conversation with someone about our environmental footprint. It’s a really big deal! I think we’ll start to see more organic and natural materials like stone (marble, soapstone, etc.) or wood pieces that have a lot of character- like burl wood. Nature is truly beautiful and I think pieces that show off these gorgeous imperfections will become very popular.
A perfect Sunday is….
A perfect Sunday is a day spent outdoors! I love adventuring- hiking, paddling or even a picnic with a gorgeous view sounds pretty amazing… soaking in the scenery and gaining inspiration. After a day of outdoor activities, I’d come home and relax with my family with a glass of wine and good food!
If you could have one piece of furniture from our website, what would it be and why? Where would it be placed?
I’d have to pick two because they are meant for each other! The Corian modern dining table with these tan leather dining chairs. I’d swap out my current dining room for an upgraded similar, chic version.
