It’s questions such as these we ask ourselves a lot here at Home Beautiful as we review, find and create spaces to help inspire you as you decorate. And, in the leadup to our 50 Beautiful Rooms special, and in particular, the closing date of our Beautiful Rooms competition, they’re ones we consider even more.

What are the key elements to timeless design? “This is a tricky question – there’s no one recipe. The most important thing about timeless design is its functionality – if something feels easy to use, then the design is successful.” The best place you’ve seen Oiva used or styled in the last 10 years? “There have been many memorable moments.
