Interior Stylist Claire Delmar reveals her love of the classic yet modern style of design icon Billy Baldwin, and shares her take on one of this season’s top trends – Global Nation.
“I was inspired by Billy Baldwin, who is famous for an uncontrived mix of the classic with clean-cut, simple, stream-lined elements, skilful use of colour and eclectic furniture choices – blending different cultural styles, both current and vintage.”
Recreate the Global Nation look in your home with Claire’s style tips:
- Modernise the global look by using neutral tones for walls and ceilings
- Accessorise with bright vibrant colours in pinks, purples and oranges but select more earthy tones of browns and greys for larger furniture items
- Be creative and eclectic, mix interesting artefacts of both art and craft, and fill wall spaces with collectible images and framed vintage prints
- Your personal look can be innovative and timeless. Decorate with leather, skins, suedes and silks
