HOW TO: REFRESH YOUR HOME WITH ACCESSORIES
Get a new look for the new year with carefully selected home accessories
The beginning of a new year marks a period of change, revitalisation and embracing a positive change. Transforming your home and surroundings can be a mark of this change. Whether you are rejuvenating your entire home or simply refreshing an individual room, we take you through some simple steps to achieve your new year, new look.
Create a moodboard with fabrics and colours for your chosen room. Try and incorporate a mix of textures and finishes within the scheme to suit your underlying theme or message. Using a mixture of materials to add contrasting lighting and texture will create more interest and a natural.
Add a splash of colour to your interior by incorporating within your soft furnishings. Start with a blank canvas of white for the floors, walls, and furniture. Once you select your chosen dominant colour theme this can be elongated throughout the room in various forms. Use collections of cushions and accessory accents to bring vivid colour into your space that can be changed according to the season. Add different textures to create warmth and depth.
Not only are cushions a simple and effective way of altering the feel of your living space, they are friendly on the pocket too. An affordable yet glamorous solution to revive your interior.
Adding or replacing a few pieces of artwork around the home is an effective way of creating an immediate impact in your interior. A piece of well placed artwork or adding a few extra photos to your gallery wall can alter the style or tone of its surroundings. A small shift is one of the easiest ways to transform the room to a seasonally appropriate design. Adding bright colours during the spring/summer months, pieces inspired by nature for an autumnal feel and moody monochrome prints during the winter.
Create ambience in the home with sensuous smells and luxury lighting. Scent is just as important in your surroundings as visual, it contributes to the feeling of the environment and can instantly transform the mood.
