A whole new style ... without redecorating
Everyone loves the idea of totally transforming their home and playing with different styles and looks until they’ve created their dream house. However, sometimes the reality of totally redecorating simply isn’t feasible, particularly if you’re on a budget or the resulting upheaval would be too inconvenient. In this situation, how can you achieve a beautiful home with minimum fuss and expense? And how can the overall design of each room be changed without extensive remodelling?
The answer of course, lies in accessories. Any design fan will know that the right fittings and fixtures can make or break a room and that well-chosen pieces can cement a style together and even accentuate a look that wasn’t completely there in the first place. This fact suddenly makes re-styling your home a much less daunting prospect, particularly if you’re prepared to take your time and do it slowly.
Different accessories don’t all need to be bought at the same time, and as such you can afford to do things at your own pace and evolve the room into something that is perfect for you. With this in mind, allow us to present our top tips for a whole new style, without having to redecorate; get ready to make the neighbours jealous.
When it comes to living space, achieving a cosy, welcoming feel is the best policy. You want guests to feel at home and simple yet soft products are the best way of achieving this. Go for rugs, blankets and scatter cushions that either match or contrast well with existing furniture; don’t be too concerned about matching all the accessories perfectly: the shabby chic look is extremely fashionable at the moment, and a slightly more ramshackle look can add to the ‘at home’ feel. Add plenty of lighting to keep the room bright and consider making flowers or plants a regular feature; these can make a room seem more homely in a matter of seconds.
Believe it or not, the hallway is one of the most important parts of the house. As the first place that guests see when they visit, your hallway can have a huge impact on the overall impression of your home; as a result, you may want to go the extra mile to keep it looking fabulous. Firstly, invest in plenty of storage. Hallways tend to be small and cramped, so use storage to keep clutter to a minimum and ensure that the room isn’t overpowered.
Finally, the dining room. Tables and chairs tend to be the driving force in these rooms, but don’t be tempted to try and compete with them using over the top ornaments and decoration. Stick to pretty trinkets and furnishings to avoid sensory overkill and incorporate just one theme, colour or pattern. These extra knick-knacks will break up the room and keep it looking interesting, without making it appear cluttered and too ‘busy’ for the eyes.
