Kellie’s styling advice:

1. Start with your choice of doors, then move on to wall colour, then flooring, to pull your look together.

2. Always use a neutral wall colour, as colour trends change through time. Bring in colour with cushions, rugs and throws.

3. My favourite palette to work from is greys, whites, and beige, with a touch of wood.
