Switch your pillow covers and throws:

Refreshing your living room does not mean you need your new furniture, but to simply give it a face lift with different pillow covers and throws for the different seasons. For the winter, opt for soft textural feminine touches – think faux furs, velvet, knit cushions and throws with wintery whites with cosy warm patterns to brighten up a cold space. As we move into the spring season you cannot go wrong with bright block colour pillows and throws that leave your living room feeling bright, lively and cheerful. Lighten your home décor in the summer months by embracing the beach weather with nautical-inspired artwork and bright pillows and lightweight throws.

Rethink your Greenery

The pantone colour for year of 2017 is greenery, the symbol of new beginnings. Inspired by nature, the yellow-green shade “evokes the first days of spring when nature’s green revive, restore and renew.”  Greenery is colour that can work perfectly in various different settings from fashion, home décor, architecture, beauty, food and beverage design, graphic design and more. Greenery is the perfect colour to introduce your living room throughout the different seasons. A traditional white living room with greenery accents will give burst of energy to a neutral space. If you got the space, bring nature indoors with plants that revive the space making the indoor space feel just like home.

Greenery works beautifully with rich textiles and natural elements of timber & concrete. Warm materials such as timber and concrete tiles are a popular choice in living rooms for creating a natural look.  Whether your style is modern, contemporary urban or industrial, tiles can be easily matched to suit any home colour scheme.   If you are looking to create a focal point in your living room green tiles is a great way to do it!

The Big Clean-out

The word that makes most people cringe hearing. But you will find a big clean out helps to get rid of unnecessary items or packed away where it’s out of the way. Tackle the big clunky items and work your way through the tedious objectives. You will find the more organised your home is, the easier it is to find things – (talking about an easy fix that is the biggest relief)
