Greek Australian, Marie Kargiotis, has been named among the top ten best home stylists in South Australia by The Advertiser.
To mark the honour, Kargiotis, who goes by the Instagram handle ‘thestylistloves,’ shared her experience in the industry and some styling tips and tricks to try at home yourself.
1. What makes a good stylist?
Understanding what your client wants and delivering a space that is their personal style elevated.
2. Most lavish project you have worked on to date?
I’ve been lucky enough to work on a few: An ensuite with rain shower and body jets. The shower tap ware alone cost over $7000; A luxury yacht straight from the Paris boat show; A full house renovation for a global supermodel.
3. What are you currently working on?
Two luxury kitchen renovations, a home office fit-out and multiple interior styling clients. Also, my own property. It’s a Mid Century home getting a total renovation in a modern Palm Springs style.
4. What’s your best tip for styling your home?
Always add your personality to your home. Bring out those photos you’ve been wanting to frame, memorabilia, items collected on travels, heirlooms or just those items that represent a personal memory or speak of what you love.
These pieces are a reflection of you and are key to making your house a home. A beautifully styled home is nothing but a display home without your personality added.
