New Home – Quick Tips To Help You Get Started


Firstly I can’t emphasize enough, how your new home should make you feel. For me it is a place I retreat to it is the end of the day, cocooned by the things I love. Decorating a new home takes times and often feels like an overwhelming experience….

Don’t fear, here are the few tips to help you get started.

Color can transform a room.
For me I love Darker hues, inky, intoxicating, beautifully timeless… I can’t go on about them enough. Find colors that make you happy& relaxed and be confident on using them.

If you are really starting from scratch, should be on the top of the priority list (it’s also a great way to shake up your style). I love adding contrast colors and stroke worthy textures. Swapping up the linen gives any bedroom an instant fresh. Swap cushions in & out rather bed linen but whichever route you take, it immediately changes the vibe.

On the subject of furniture make sure invest in a decent sofa. Think about to space you have & you want to indulge in a generous sofa or just somewhere you can snuggle into with a good book… Trust me when it comes to book it always makes your place look attractive and decent. For me it’s a place I often take a nap, have a cozy chat and snuggle up in front of the TV.

Your furniture is where you can choose to break rules & make statement with rich textures & fabrics. The easy way to revamp the table is to change the vase, blooms, scents, new bags, books. And you can use faux and switch to faux’s. It will make your area look & feel totally different.
COOL NO?!!!!

It is the second most transformative thing you can do to a space.
I’m obsessed with lighting. It can add depth, highlight, draw the eye- it really is a dark art- well a light art really.

There are three types of lighting:

  1. Ambient
  2. Task
  3. Accent


Just remember to always strive to have 3 types of lighting in a room to create layers & oodles of personality.
But don’t overlook lighting reason being it creates such mood & ambience whether that’s adding another table lamp or a pedant.
Beautiful focal points can be created through lighting.

Last but not the least, add character.
Personalize your home with the things you love. You may choose lighter colors, old art works that you sometime find at an antique fair. Little accessories like light holders, pictures & sculptures can easily be rearranged to give your space one of the easiest face lifts on the planets..!!..

Remember to make the space your own & take time to create rooms you live in…
After all its all yours..!!..
