Group Objects

Group some new or existing objects to create interest on a mantlepiece or windowsill. Adding geometric items or those that are reflective will also add some additional intrigue

Fresh is Best!

Don’t wait to Valentine’s Day! Get yourself some fresh flowers like these stunning peonies. There is nothing better and if you can cut them fresh from your own garden, even better

Use Old Books

Your books don’t always have to go on a bookshelf! Why use them of that mountain of interior design magazines that you’ve collected and use them as end tables?

Placement OCD

Here’s where you get full permission to let your positioning OCDs let rip! Place your furniture symmetrically. Line up your lights, chairs, sofas or side tables

Let There Be Light

Invest in table or floor lamps that are beautiful to look at. Not only will they serve a practical function, they will be easy on the eye too

See Through It

If you have a small or dark space, create a sense of space and light by using a see-through or transparent table. Back in the day, your only options were glass but now you can get some fantastic acrylic tables that look wonderful.

Be Bold

Add bold accent cushions to a plain sofa by choosing cushions with bright and bold patterns.

Mirror, Mirror...

Position a mirror in a way that it reflects both natural and artificial light, but also a view. It well help make your room seem twice as bright and twice as big.

Get Bold & Brave

Be bold and brave! Go for a textured rug with a bold pattern to liven up an otherwise bland, plain room

Inside Garden

Hang and/or fix a selection of wall and hanging plant pots to not only serve as wall art, but to bring some life to your space and help purify the air in your room

Mix Materials & Textures

Mix your materials and textures and be brave with your colour palette. Try soft velvets and suedes with linen, marble or engineered stone with wood…

Keep It Neutral

Buy a neutral sofa that won’t look out of place and be in style with any kind of decor or changes over the years. Stores like Citta always have a great selection of ageless, modern classics

Bring Walls to Life

Bring your walls to life by placing a wallpaper mural on a wall. Try to make it an extension of your accessories, style or outdoor space. If you can’t find a mural that you like, contact your local art school or college and get a student to do one for you!

Get Smelly

Absolutely blow the budget and splurge on a the largest and most luxurious scented candle you can find. Scent is everything. get it right and you will make your room feel and smell warm and inviting

Declutter!

I know, I know, you’ve heard this so many times before but have you actually done it? Get ruthless and you’ll be amazed at how much more space you really have and the difference in how your rooms will feel

Get An Accent!

Wall that is! Paint at least one main wall an accent colour and turn dull and boring into Wow!

Time to Chat

Yes, we’re all for comfy and squidgy sofas, but sometimes it’s good just to sit and chat. Make sure that you define an area in your living room that lets you do just that like this example here from a recent project we completed

Don't Like It? Move It!

Just because it’s always been there, that doesn’t mean that it always has to stay there! Rearrange your room – simply swapping a sofa from one side of your living room to the other can make such an impact
