Describe your role at Brosa

I work as a stylist at our Fitzroy studio and primarily assist customers with their furniture choices.

How would you describe your own personal interior style?

My personal style is always evolving, however I have a strong appreciation for mid-century modern design. I also love combining it with coastal design for a softer look.

Where do you find everyday inspiration?

I really take inspiration from colleagues, friends, other students, and especially artists. Nature is a strong source of inspiration as well.

Tactile interiors such as rattan and leather are at the top of Jessica’s trend forecast for 2022.

What are your top tips for a well-styled home?

I like to keep my furniture pieces very neutral. You can always bring in colour with plants, artwork, and cushions so if you outgrow that colour scheme you have a neutral slate to work with.

Which design trends are you most excited about in 2022?

I am excited to see the attention individuals are spending on making their home accommodating and warm after experiencing a global pandemic. Our interiors have an influence on our moods but also our overall mental health. Natural, tactile materials such as wool, leather and rattan are also a great addition to any interior.

Favourite styling tip that is low cost for high reward?

Invest in throw rugs, cushions and artwork. They can be inexpensive and add a lot of character, colour, and texture to your home.

Favourite online place to find inspiration?

Pinterest is a great source of online inspiration for me, I can usually find imagery that represents what I’m trying to achieve.

What is your favourite part of the job?

Helping customers with their home! Everyone has a different story and style, it’s very rewarding to help them reach their goals.
