[Expert Interview] Busy designing and selecting finishes for The Tempo Group projects, we managed to catch up with Kady on all things interior design.
What’s the secret to stylish spaces? We’ve reached out to our Interiors By Tempo designer to uncover the latest home styling tips and tricks that we use in our spaces to help create and elevate yours. Get to know our interior design expert and learn how to achieve professional styling.
What first inspired your passion for interior design?
KADY: I’ve always been an inherently creative person with a passion for all things design. I love carefully selecting individual elements to create spaces that are not only distinctive but that deliver a personalised environment for our clients. I draw inspiration from the ever-changing world of design and am constantly researching new styles, trends and products.
What do you love most about interior design?
KADY: I love that it combines creativity and organisation. Designing and specifying finishes requires attention to detail and thinking ‘outside the square’ to achieve a look that is not only unique and eye-catching but that also meets our clients’ brief and expectations. It is also important to ensure that all elements of the design are well-documented to ensure that the transition from design to build is smooth and seamless.
What’s an interior style that you can’t get enough of?
KADY: I deeply appreciate all design styles and feel that each has played an important role in the trends we see today. I believe that it is possible to combine key elements of different styles to create cohesive and successful spaces. The most recent incarnation of ‘Modern Boho’ is perhaps my favourite trend at the moment. For me, this style represents natural fibres, organic colours and neutral palettes.
What style trends can we expect in 2021?
KADY: Most of us have spent more time than ever at home this year, giving us a unique opportunity to assess where and how we live in our home environments. After an unprecedented year, 2021 will bring organic shapes and raw, natural textures with the integration of warm, gentle, colour. People are looking to source from and support, local designers and craftspeople and I believe design will veer toward comfort and softness and away from stark, modern, minimalism.
What’s your styling tip for our clients?
KADY: Start with the main focus pieces, it might be the art that you love or a statement piece of furniture, smaller accessories and rugs can be chosen afterwards. A touch of greenery and quality cushions can make a lot of difference and are easily updated from season to season. Don’t be afraid of colour and pattern, particularly with soft furnishings. My main tip would be – be true to your own, unique style and go for it! Be guided by the elements that make you happy in the space and the rest will follow.
