Bringing the whimsy or the unexpected into an interior decor can make all the difference – between a room that feels rigid and without style and one that evokes a layered sense of the inhabitants’ personalities.
Creating stunning interiors is something that can be done in many ways, but for Celine Vernezy of CV Interiors, one of the most important aspects is to clearly articulate the owners’ personalities by utilising pieces with character, as well as surrounding people with things that make them happy.
Injecting some humour into the decor prevents the room from feeling rigid and contrived,” Celine says. “It gives the room soul. Interior design isn’t a formula – choosing pieces that utilise the owners’ sense of humour also adds another layer to the room.”
Whether this is through an unusual sculpture carefully placed in a contrived position, or an artwork that is cleverly juxtaposed with the rest of the room to develop an unexpected narrative, humour always adds to the richness of character a room can evoke.
