Many of us lack space in the rooms we sleep in. And even if your main bedroom isn’t too small, kid’s and teenager’s rooms are often a little pokey – and most people have a ‘box’ room, which doesn’t feel big enough for much aside from storage. But you can use some creative interior design tricks to make these rooms appear far more spacious and stylish. And one of the easiest ideas is the clever positioning of mirrors.
Light, bright and versatile, the pastel colour palette can be a fantastic choice for interiors of all shapes and sizes. Used well, these eye-catching but unassuming shades can help you to create a fantastic contemporary aesthetic in your living area and really bring the interior of your home to life.
Moving house famously requires a lot of planning, organisation and preparation. In fact, the more thought you put into your move before the big day, the smoother your relocation is likely to go. To help you get it just right, we’ve put together a comprehensive checklist for your next move.
With a history stretching back to the 9th century BC, it’s safe to say that Feng Shui is one of the oldest interior design guides around. Stemming from the Taoist belief in Chi, the life force that is said to inhabit everything, Feng Shui has been used to help balance and design Chinese homes for millennia.
There’s no doubt that throw and scatter cushions can really improve the look and feel of your bedroom. Not only do they offer increased comfort in your sleeping area but they can also help to add texture, colour and pattern, as well as softening the space.
However, with scatter and throw cushions it is generally about quality and not quantity. Too many cushions can look busy and even messy. Plus, it can then take several minutes each night to take them off and more time to put them back on again in the morning. So, the key is to choose cushions with impact rather than just littering your bed area. Here are some top tips on how to get it right.
Your living room is the heart of your home. Instead of being purely functional, this particular room is multi-purpose - the perfect spot for relaxing, catching up on the latest TV and even hosting guests. While your choice of furniture, paint and artwork can set the theme, lighting (and a little bit of versatility) is the critical mood-maker.
