I have no design ability and fall back on the bland “I know what I like”. Elle Décor magazine I find inspiring and if you can define style, it’s got to be within their pages. This is an article about John Roselli, with his definitive view on what works in home design. His five decorating essentials are:
A pair of side chairs
A good mirror
Sconces (are these light fittings?)
Probably not my choice, but then, I haven’t got style.
