When a woman shows you a picture of her home and it looks like this, there are few people who respond with anything other than utter home-envy. In the spirit of the new season, Monikh Dale has reinvented her home with a fresh yet characterful appeal and she attributes all of this to the details. But there's an art to it, she says.
Here's how to give your home a little TLC.

How would you describe your home?
A simple space with busy additions.
How has your home evolved since you moved in a few years ago?
First I had everything white and marble and that was quickly followed by the rose gold era. Now it’s all about effortless clutter. I just want the house to look lived in, warm and stylish. The best way to achieve that is with small and simple details.

How did you make your house a home?
Accessorising with textures, cushions, vases and scented candles. These are the pieces that bring your house to life, they show your personality and prevent a simple space from feeling like a show home.
How does your job influence your personal space?
There's an art to styling your accessories and I want people to see my home and know it belongs to me. I take a lot of my blog photos at home and it's nice that my surroundings match the feel of my clothes.

How does the internet play a role in inspiring your real life space?
Pinterest is dangerous! I’ll see an image taken on opposite side of the world (and with a price tag that leaves me ill) but I won’t be able to stop thinking about it and will spend weeks looking for something similar.
My favourite piece...
The new cowhide candles are ideal! I burn one every night so am constantly looking to stock up. These are amazing as they become a feature of the bedside table.
