In this episode of Australia’s first podcast dedicated to interior design and home styling, Lauren and Scott tackle a common and frustrating design dilemma. A listener has emailed in saying that she went for a very ‘safe’ look for her living room and now the whole space just looks boring and way too brown. Lauren’s got some advice on how to rescue this room with some great interior styling, which you could apply to your home too!   LISTEN We’ll be adding a new interior design podcast every week, including this episode. Just click play and you can hear the whole thing now! Or listen to this episode and others in Stitcher or iTunes >> Click here to Listen Now on iTunes       Brown can actually be a very versatile colour, but when your sofa is brown and your timber occasional furniture is also brown, the whole space looks really muddy. Lauren provides a range of great tips on how to break up the brown (and neutrals) and get this room looking more colourful and contemporary. Lauren and Scott talk about the latest trends coming out of the Milan Furniture Fair – it’s a huge design, furniture and decor event held in Italy each year. What we see in Milan usually sets the tone for interior styling trends for the next 2-3 years so you can bet what is on show there now will be in our stores and homes soon. Check out the hashtags #salonedelmobile2016 #isaloni for a sneak peak at lots of amazing furniture and homewares on show at the fair.
