A mismatched look in on trend, as are muted statement pieces like big couches.DOES your home need a makeover? An interior stylist is no longer just the preserve of the stars with accessible and budget-friendly options now a reality.Furniture and homewares retailer Matt Blatt is among those with home styling services that cost as little as $500.For that amount, which is deductible on purchases over $5000, his customers receive an in-store consultation with a stylist, followed by a home visit to develop a personalised mood board, layout and help to choose appropriate piece.“The concept of hiring an interior stylist used to be something associated with socialites and the rich and famous but that’s no longer the case,” said Matt Blatt’s Brisbane home styling specialist Kellie Walsh. “More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours agoMs Walsh shared a few tips to liven up your home: 1. Embrace colour: Treat a statement furniture piece like you would a feature wall. In 2018, we’re loving deep jewel-tones, soft greens, sky blues and the new neutral — muted pink. Try adding tans and terracotta for a dash of drama. 2. Forget matching: When mixing patterns, to get that ‘thrown together’ look, repeat the same two or three key colours through various patterns. 3. Keep the table, change up the chairs: Mismatched chairs are still bang on trend, and are a fresh and funky way to update your entertaining zone without having to change the dining table. 4. Art and accessories are often the answer: A fresh print on your wall can alter the appearance, and the appeal, of any room, and is a simple summer update that anyone can achieve. Another easy update is restyling your credenza, coffee table or bookshelf with fun photo frames, bookends, temple jars, quirky faux animals and more.Matt Blatt has two showrooms in Queensland, one in Fortitude Valley and the other on the Gold Coast.
AMES — A Farm Bureau report says Iowa saw 27 farms file for bankruptcy during 2019. That’s up from just 14 farm bankruptcies the previous year.Chad Hart, an agricultural economist at Iowa State University, says there may be more bankruptcy filings in coming years as the federal government ends trade mitigation payments that supplement farm income. Hart says, “Given that, we might see a step back here in farm incomes and that should lead to, again, continued pressure where we could see this bankruptcy trend continue to rise slowly higher.”Hart says the overall numbers are relatively small, but it shows there’s mounting financial trouble from dairy states like Wisconsin to grain states like Iowa. “It shows that it’s not just centered on one sector like dairy,” Hart says, “that this is spread more broadly across production agriculture.”Iowa and six neighboring states each marked decade-high numbers of farm bankruptcies in 2019. Hart says farm income has actually been on the rise, buoyed by 28-billion dollars in federal payments to make up for trade disruptions. He says those payments are not expected to continue, but the financial pressure on Midwestern farmers likely will.
