A few home truths about building a home and all that surrounds it.

Diy home styling

WHAT ARE THE EASIEST WAYS TO REFRESH YOUR HOME DESIGN WITHOUT SPENDING TOO MUCH?

Simple styling changes can help transform a space.

Cushions for example are not only fun and comfy, but a great way to introduce pattern and colour without the ridiculous price tag. We recommend experimenting with textures; velvet and fur are staple favourites in winter, and layering heavy fabrics with lighter ones will ensure your home is both cosy and stylish.

Another easy and affordable way to instantly refresh your space is to use a vase of flowers or native Australian follage to really brighten the space and to bring that fresh floral scent indoors.

ARE THERE WAYS OF TEMPORARILY CHANGING MY HOME FOR A FRESH LOOK? 

Wallpaper has made a HUGE comeback in recent years and we're definitely excited about it. Rather than spend excessive dollars accessorising every room, we feel wallpaper is a fun and creative way to introduce personality and flair to the home. Bright colours and bold patterns create a focal point, whilst adding texture to your walls works to bring an added dimension to the space. If you're not convinced, removable wallpaper (which you can update as seasons change), is the perfect choice for you!

IF YOU HAD TO INVEST IN ONE PIECE TO SPRUCE YOUR SPACE COMING INTO WINTER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Rugs are an easy way to bring warmth and texture to your home. They can also be used to help frame a space and add comfort underfoot on a solid floor surface. Can't decide on a colour or pattern? Layering rugs is becoming a popular design trend, and is another great way of adding extra comfort and texture to your home.

TIP: If you are going to play with layering, take into account size, shape and colour, to avoid it looking like one big hot mess!

IN TERMS OF DIY, ARE THERE ANY SIMPLE STYLE HACKS YOU CAN DIVULGE TO THE PUBLIC ON ENHANCING A SPACE?

Of course! You can add character to doors and cabinetry by updating old or outdated handles with more modern fittings. Matt black accessories and door hardware has been one of the biggest emerging trends in design, and this is definitely easy enough for you to do yourself! For a complete designer look, coordinate with matt black tapware and decor accessories available at most major design stores.

Your home will be dripping in sleek style in no time!
