If you get excited about lush spaces and contemporary décor then let us introduce you to your newest design crush, Wall To Wall Interiors. Whether you’re building a house, renovating a room, or just wanting to add some accessories to your office space—styling superstar and business owner Lydia Fulgido is here to offer her coveted advice. Specialising in interior design and funky fresh homewares, Fulgido proves that with the right combination of neutral colours, vivid art, and pattern play, you can transform a lacklustre space into a celebration of design.
Fulgido has been offering her design expertise and helping clients adorn their homes since completing a Bachelor of Interior Architecture almost eight years ago. Sunday the 30th of October, however, saw the official launch of Wall To Wall Interiors as a permanent and fixed outlet (an upgrade from Fulgido’s previous work-from-home set up). Here, clients can visualise, touch and trial anything from a bed and cushions, to cheeseboards and coasters in store.
“The aim is to have a retail shopfront with an office space out the back to do interior design consultations and also styling consultations with clients,” says Fulgido.
Being a local lady herself, Fulgido endeavours to source local products where possible and highlight some of Australia’s fabulous hidden wares.
“I think it’s always good to support locally rather than getting things in from overseas,” says Fulgido.
“A lot of the products are either from South Australia or are Australian made and designed, so we’ve got some jewellery ranges, spa ranges, some organic teas, greeting cards, art work, and some furniture that are all local.”
With an organic focus at the heart of her local collection, Fulgido offers a variety of delicious and organic teas by Organics for Lily, the gluten, nut, and dairy-free bodycare products by The Spa – Beechworth, and the luxe-bohemian jewellery collection by Elle Louise (just to name a few).
When it comes to interior design, it’s all about getting creative and surrounding yourself with décor that inspires you. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. Even Fulgido admits it can be tricky settling for only one theme.
“I find it hard to pick one certain style that I like myself, so I include a bit of a mix. I’ve got a neutral base with a lot of colourful additions and things that you can change up easily,” says Fulgido.
“Go by what you like. Don’t put things with your house that are on trend unless you like them. You should stick to what like and what you’re going to be happy looking at every day.”
