Jenine's interior design tips

• It’s your home, so express your personality in your interiors. Embrace a little fun and colour! It’s easy to paint a bold wall and just as easy to get rid of it! 

• If something no longer brings you joy, change it or mix it up. In fact, don’t have anything in your home that doesn’t bring you joy.

• Add greenery in textured baskets to bring life and tranquillity to a space. 

• Textured, bold or classic, wallpaper adds a whole lot of fun. Really go for it; ‘drape’ a room in wallpaper and see how the corners ‘fade away’. 

• Add character to a bathroom with an organic-style mirror and a shelf below for a diffuser, hand soap and a ‘green’ element. You don’t have to break the bank to add heart to a small space! 

• On weekends, go trawling for once-off furniture pieces that you can refurbish and make your own – this is a great way to bring personality into your interiors. 

• Collect art and objects and layer your surfaces; displays can be changed up as the mood takes you. 

• If you get the opportunity to open up your living spaces and create a more communal area, just go for it. You won’t regret it! A South African lifestyle is best suited to an easy flow from the kitchen to the lounge to the dining room and outdoors.
