10 Quick & Easy Home Updates
Feeling the sudden urge to change everything? Worry not. We’re here to reconnect you with your unique style and help you express it through the medium of homeware.
When it comes to updating your home, choosing a couple of key pieces is a great way to start. Whether you’re thinking of changing your colour scheme or just want a new wall sticker, remember to relax. This is supposed to be fun. If you love every item you choose, they’ll all work together regardless.
Here are our ten top tips for an instant home refresh – and you won’t even need to get a paint brush out.
1. LIGHTEN UP
Elevate your lamp from traditional to talking point. Adding a new light – or even just stringing up fairy lights – is a great way to take a room from “meh” to “oh my”.
2. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
We always find that having a house plant to look after cheers us up – add vibrant colours and a dose of gravity defying gardening to the equation and we’re very happy indeed.
3. CREATE A FEATURE SHELF
If there’s one thing we love about a home update, it’s a good old game of feng shui. Try rearranging your shelves and adding ornaments, framed pictures and a potted succulent to the mix to keep things fresh.
4. STYLISH STORAGE SOLUTIONS
Decluttering doesn’t have to mean a complete life laundry – especially if there’s a vintage suitcase in the offing.
5. PERSONALISED WALL ART
When it comes to expressing your newly (re)discovered style, finding something personal to you is key. You’re a one-off. So why would you be happy with a print or wall sticker that could belong to anybody?
6. NEW TREND, NEW CUSHION
As much as we’d like to, most of us can’t justify redecorating when a new trend comes around. Instead, we’ve found channeling our energy into new cushions is just as satisfying (you can never have too many)!
7. UPDATE OLD HANDLES
Upcycling might just be our favourite new word. Revive an old piece of furniture with a new set of handles, giving that old chest of drawers you have a make over worthy of the home channel.
8. CREATE A GALLERY WALL
The envy of Pinterest-lovers everywhere, gallery walls are not as difficult as you might think. We’ve got a range of matching frames and wallstickers that are perfect for displaying your photos, prints, keepsakes or pressed flowers.
9. FRESH LINEN
Nothing beats fresh linen – throw in a bold pattern and a high thread count and you’ll never get us out of bed. Updating your sheets is a quick and easy way to give your bedroom a fresh lease of life.
10. STATEMENT FURNITURE
An investment, admittedly – but unlike those beautiful but oh so painful shoes we’ve never worn – a worthy one. Adding an armchair or cabinet in an accent colour can completely transform a room.
