INSPIRATION & IDEAS
Freedom products are designed to fit our broad Australian lifestyle but that doesn’t mean it’s one look across all of our ranges. The balance is carefully curated to lean into all facets of our vast and varied Australian tastes including everything from classic, coastal, urban and boho all the way to contemporary, Scandi and minimalist. You can visit a Freedom store or website and trust that your personal taste is catered for but what does that mean if you have trouble defining your personal style? We recommend a chat with one of our Interior Decorators to help you create a space that is true to your taste and take the stress out of decisions around those big-ticket items like furniture and sofas. One of our highly experienced and talented Interior Decorators can help cut through the noise of Pinterest and IG inspo overload and assist you to find what works for your home and importantly, help you incorporate your current pieces. To show just three ways to make a piece your own, we challenged our Myaree store Interior Decorator, Diane Cocksey to show us three ways you could style our popular Bowral dining table. Di has created a timeless, urban and crafted look to demonstrate the versatility in our ranges - you may swing across these style profiles and that’s A-OK with us!
“I strongly believe the secret to decorating and creating a space you love is that it’s not about how good it looks, it’s actually about how good it feels. It is not about a single product or idea. It is the total sum of everything including the new and old, the highs and lows and the good with the bad.
I have been decorating at Freedom for more than 15 years and I love the way trends have become more fluid and overlapping each other. In other words, it’s more eclectic and more interesting. To make it easier for yourself, start with a basic idea of style and function and a few favourite items and expand ideas from there. You don’t have to do it on your own. The Freedom Decorator at your nearest store has the decorating experience and knowledge to help you develop your ideas and bring your space to life. ” – Diane Cocksey
CLASSIC DINING STYLE
This look is so interesting and multi-layered with amazing simple shapes and natural textures. It’s not too fussy but the success is in the detail. Simple and clean organic colours, detailed shapes and textures make it feel so global. Light and earthy colours mixed with natural timbers are literally the heart and soul of this style. It creates a personal trip to a faraway place. Something we are all craving at the moment.

MODERN MINIMALIST STYLE
The comfort and ease of this look means it invites you to stay for a longtime. Some classic shapes and strong structures are always appealing. Softer and rounder shapes this season mixed with honest hardwearing timber and fabric makes it a family favourite. More earthy colours are so popular now and reflect the inspirational Australian landscape so much more than ever before. Try adding accessories in these new season colours to your classic favourite furniture for an amazing update.

CITY CHIC STYLE
The inspiration of smooth streamline surfaces combined with bold outlines of chunky modern pops of colour and metal creates the latest modern trends. The new urban looks are much braver and more fun than they used to be with amazing shapes and colours. I think it makes it more accessible and appealing to more people. Go a bit crazy with some bold accessories this season.
