Organise your ornaments
Light up your life
Floor and table lamps can very quickly make a room feel more cosy. If you’re on a budget and want a quick update, try painting your current lampshade or recovering it with new fabric and a bit of spray adhesive. A little change is it all takes to lift the mood.
Pop in playful curtains
Frame and Hang
Rethink and recycle
Raid your local charity shop for beautiful antiques that will bring character to your home. We love giving second-hand goods a new lease of life, so use that old travel case as a coffee table and wipe down that dusty stepladder and repurpose it as a bookcase.
Add textiles for accents
If your living room is looking a little dated, don’t mess with your furniture staples. You can change the entire look of your space within seconds by replacing your cushions and throws. Stick to a matching colour scheme and you can do no wrong. Need help? Use this nifty tool to discover winning colour combos.
Warm up with rugs
Tie together all the elements of your room with a textured rug. Not only will it add colour to the floor and make it look more homely but it can also make your space look more sophisticated.
Freshen up with florals
Make even the most minimalist living rooms instantly more inviting by bringing nature indoors. All it takes is a trip to your local nursery or flower market and then with a pop of colour and a whiff of floral fragrance, your space will feel more welcoming.
