It's the Little Things That Matter the Most
From that piece of décor that doesn’t quite fit, but you love it anyway to the larger pieces that anchor your space or the artworks that adorn your walls, your home is a reflection of your style and personality and says so much about what truly matters to you.
At this time of year, you might be thinking of refreshing your space, but perhaps you don’t want it to be such a big production.
A few carefully selected pieces can make any space look and feel brand new without breaking the bank or without the overwhelm of a complete makeover.
We unpack a few ideas for small changes you can make to yield big results.
Layered Décor : The Art of Details
Layering is a powerful tool in your design arsenal. Experiment with grouping items, such as stacking decorative accents atop books. Moderation is key; too much clutter can make your space feel chaotic. Play with height, texture, and colour to create your desired look.
Scatter Cushions and Throws: Texture, Colour, Comfort
Scatter cushions and throws are a subtle way to give your home a lift. Swap them out to suit the changing seasons or your evolving taste. Layer with different textures and complimentary colours to create a refreshing new look.
Mirrors: Reflecting Space and Light
Mirrors, large or small, have a sort of magnifying effect on the space in a room. Mirrors are the go-to element for creating the illusion of space. Not only do they make a room appear more spacious, but their refractory qualities allow light to bounce around the room, adding to the sense of spaciousness and airiness. Be sure to place your mirrors across from windows or green spaces wherever possible to take advantage of their reflective quality.

Interesting Planters: Bringing Nature Indoors
In a country with a temperate climate and lush natural views, the trend of bringing the outdoors in will never go out of style. Houseplants, flowers, and greenery make a space more welcoming, not to mention the numerous benefits for your wellbeing. From cleansing the air to calming the senses, greenery is a must. Make your greenery even more special with interesting planters in cool concrete, vibrant pops of colour, or traditional ceramic.
Lighting: The Final Touch
The right amount of light in a room can make it look more spacious and inviting. Well-placed lighting fixtures will bring attention to a room's best features and are a powerful way to set the tone and mood of a room. Table lamps soften the space and set the tone for relaxation, while pendants and track lights make a room feel livelier and work well in kitchens and dining areas. If you only make one change in your home this season, start with lighting. New pendants above the dining table or a floor lamp in the lounge will very quickly help you change the look and feel of any room.
