Transforming a room, easily.

Adding Colour

If you’re partial to a neutral colour scheme and feel your rooms lack a bit of colour, dotting some cushions about the room is an easy and effective way to add that back in. You can go all out and mix all the colours of the rainbow, or stick to a specific colour scheme and create a gorgeous palette to make your room cohesive. Having plenty of cushions dotted around also gives a lovely illusion of comfort, so you’ll be making people feel right at home, too.

Cushions

Warm and Wonderful

Throws over furniture are a lovely way to accent your furniture, add a point of interest to a room and even make a change. Upholstering furniture is expensive and incredibly fussy, so save yourself a time and make use of a throw, or even a blanket, instead. If you have leather furniture, they’re helpful for keeping warm in winter, and creating a barrier between skin and the leather in the summer.

From Walls to Floors

Carpets, rugs and other flooring have a big impact on a room, so updating yours could transform your whole room’s ambience. Flooring can be expensive, so only make the change if you’re sure it’s something you’ll absolutely love – otherwise, try out different rugs for impact instead. Pair a deep jewel tone with a neutrally coloured rug for impact and sophistication.

Play with Textures

Rather than focusing on one feature of your room, play with textures! Combine a woollen throw with a fluffy rug and velveteen carpets for a truly textured look; they don’t even have to be different colours if you’d prefer to keep things more on the neutral side. Have a look through any fabric shop for ideas for textures, and play with different combinations.
