Professional make up artist, author, blogger and YouTube sensation; Lisa Potter-Dixon knows a thing or two about creating a stylish look. Although our love affair with Lisa first started a few years ago when we were introduced to her talent and creativity in beauty business, we’ve long been a fan of her incredible home.
Embracing playful pieces and bold colour palettes that add instant impact, Lisa’s home shows the same fabulously fun approach to style as her work in the world of beauty, and her enviable wardrobe. As a self-confessed maximalist, Lisa has created an extraordinary interior of colour, pattern and glamour.
HOW TO STYLE YOUR HOME
Having just launched a new Instagram account (@lpdathome) that celebrates her love of all thing interiors, Rockett St George invited Lisa to curate an edit of some of her favourite Rockett St George pieces from around her own home, as well as a few other tempting treasures that help steal her style.
1. INCLUDE HOME HEROES
‘This is lamp is one of my favourite pieces in my home,' recalls Lisa. 'I remember telling my husband that I was having a plant delivered, and then this beauty turned up! "WOW" was his first word, and that’s most people’s response. Even if you are a minimalist (unlike me), adding statement lighting like this to any room in your home adds immediate impact.’
2. INTRODUCE AN ELEMENT OF FUN
‘When you host a dinner party, your main aim is for your guests to have fun', says Lisa. 'If your table setting is plain and boring, it sets the wrong vibe. Having place mats that first look great, but also make your guests smile, is a brilliant starting point for a great night ahead!’
3. GET THE PARTY STARTED
From the palm tree floor lamp that stands tall in her dining space surrounded by disco balls, to the ultimate table setting accessories and quirky ornaments, the LPD x RSG Edit celebrates how to create a fun and stylish home that is truly individual. 'Packed full of personality with spaces that lend themselves to elaborate entertaining or relaxation, our collaboration with Lisa encourages creativity and confidence in every aspect of the home,' says Rockett St George.
