When it comes to decorating our home, we know what we like. But when it comes to styling and finding those chic, sophisticated pieces that are just right? That’s where we like to pump an expert for information.
Sure, we’ve come to know a thing or two about what adds style to a room, and we’ve filled countless Pinterest boards with ideas of what each room should look like, but actually sourcing pieces that reflect those lust-worthy styles can be challenging (and time consuming).
Leading Canberra interior designer, Maria Cerne, from Studio Black Interiors, has got an interiors aesthetic we are obsessed with. We live for her insta feed and her styling tips are always on point. We asked the ultra-talented local lady to let us in on a few of her online secrets: her favourite home décor sites for finding chic, stylish, unique items.
Keen to shop like an interior designer? Scroll for the online stores where Maria shops for artwork, homewares and furniture – as well as her fave finds from each site.
“Fenton & Fenton are one of my online furniture favourites, with a global collection of intriguing objects, furniture pieces and art. They offer a unique shopping experience that expresses a style that dares to mix and match. On my wish list this year is this Terrazo tooth stump that would look great in a bathroom, bedside or dotted around the house or garden.”
“One of my go-to furniture brands is Globewest. Their distinctive furniture and homewares are inspired by uniquely Australian living. Their collection is super stylish and covers both interior and exterior styles. I’m dying to get my hands on their Theodore Moon Occasional Chair in dark blue velvet.”
“Greenhouse Interiors is my number-one destination for Australian homewares and artwork. Artwork helps to anchor a room and ultimately creates the overall style and feel of a space, and you can’t go past the beautiful range of art at Greenhouse Interiors. From originals to limited edition prints, their colourful artwork is sure to create maximum impact in any space.”
“RJ Living is another one of my favourite online furniture and homeware shops. From contemporary, to industrial, to retro, to Scandi – they have a large selection to suit all styles. They’re my number-one pick for styling products: I’ve spent a small fortune buying amazing glass vases from their range!”
