    A house is not a home…

    You know how the old song goes: “A chair is still a chair, even when there’s no one sitting there… But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home…”

    We have to say Burt Bacharach knew what he was talking about. One of the biggest concerns clients have for stylists is whether their house will still feel like a home when the job is done. If you’re keeping your home, obviously you want somewhere you can feel comfortable and inspired. If you’re selling, you want your buyers to feel the same!

    Every home is unique

    You know when you walk into a display home and everything undeniably looks incredible, but something is … missing? Yep, at BOWERBIRD, we avoid that feeling by looking at each property individually. This isn’t a copy-and-paste interiors job – from location to target market, every project is uniquely tailored to your needs. We draw inspiration from architecture, surroundings, current trends and, importantly, your own aspirations for your home.

    Everyone loves the classics

    While we style each home on a case-by-case basis, we still maintain the BOWERBIRD look throughout. If you’re worried about your property losing its personality, don’t fret! Over the years, we’ve curated our aesthetic to be universally classic and appealing (something that’s particularly important if you’re selling). There’s always space to add a family photo or heirloom as the finishing touch to your freshly styled home.

    Every detail matters

    What makes a house a home isn’t a big fancy foyer or four extra spare rooms. It’s the little things, like a beautiful print to greet you upon entering, layers of comfy cushions you want to sink into at the end of a long day, or a unique piece of decor that everybody asks about (enter our BOWERBIRD beads). We don’t say we love the detail for nothing!
