At Home With Steph @ohsorented
Your beautiful home gives us all the interior inspiration! Who or what inspires you?
Pastels colours and fun shapes are definitely the focus of my interiors. I get a lot of inspiration from Wes Anderson films. And often spend a lot of time scrolling through Pinterest. I like to create dream-like spaces, with every single item brining joy.
Your home is bursting with colour. How do you brighten up a gloomy day?
The more colour the better! Surrounding myself with joyful décor really helps boost my mood. When it’s a gloomy day I always start by making a matcha latte, treating myself to my favourite foods, lighting candles and watching a food film/series.
Other than in your apartment, when and where else do you feel the most at home?
I love spending lots of time in cosy cafes. There’s something about enjoying a hot drink and people-watching that brings me so much comfort. I could spend my whole day in a café!
You’ve shown your followers some creative drinks lately… How are you making your coffee right now?
A shot of espresso, steamed oat milk with a splash of hazelnut syrup. Delicious!
Let’s get practical. Apartment living requires creative solutions to storage, decoration and making a home your own … How do you stir things up in a small space?
When decorating a small space, I think it’s really important to make sure every item has a purpose. Multi-use furniture is a great way to save space – like a bed with storage drawers. Pick items that bring you joy and that you’d want to look at every single day. Small accessories, like vases, candles and kitchenware, can make such a big difference – they are often affordable and easy to switch-up when you want a change.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
As I recently bought my apartment, I’m looking forward to working on lots of interior projects. My bathroom is at the top of my list as I haven’t been able to do much with it since renting. I am also ready to get the paint out and start adding colour to the walls!
Finally… What’s your favourite spot in your home?
I think the living space is definitely my favourite. It’s where I spend the most time and it’s filled with so many cute items that just make me so happy.
