What with the house move literally within days now (eek I'm so excited!) I'm peachy keen on getting in there and making things more personal and 'us'. Not that I frankly don't do this in general but I've been pouring over Pinterest/interior magazines etc getting inspiration on how to jujzz (I'm committing to that spelling) up your space. No need for paint or investing in new furniture, a few, well-chosen decorative items can really update your look.
Hammered Copper Tray £19 | This bowl/tray is so affordable and a bit of a deadringer for this much more expensive Tom Dixon number. A lovely piece of worked metal creates a bit of interest in your space; you could use this as a simple centrepiece bowl in your dining area or use it more like a tray on your coffee table to hold candles, decanters or room sprays.
Cutout Candle £32 | One of the easiest ways to freshen things up and create some interest is with a uniquely shaped candleholder. I can't say I'm one for 'ornaments', that don't serve a purpose other than being something to look at, but a jazzy little candleholder can be rather ornamental whilst still serving a purpose.
Chevron Photo Frame £18 | Add pops of colour with photoframes. They don't necessarily have to sport selfies or personal photos, a little arrangement of beautiful magazine cuttings for example is perfectly pretty.
Prisma Copper Photo Frame £10 | Another photo frame, I love the 3D element of this one, and of course more copper! I think mixing and matching photo frames, some rustic, some modern, large small, discreet, flamboyant, around your room creates a really nice flow.
Phalaenapsis Orchid £35 | After an unsuccessful first attempt with an albeit hard to grow variety, I'm determined to make things work this time with an orchid, as I love them. Stumbled across these orchid earrings (£55) too and I'm a little in love! Maybe I'll treat myself if this one survives! Arguably I'll be having fresh cut flowers as much as possible, but a potted flower still brightens up your space, I'm all for flowers and plants inside.
Navy Lampshade £15 | It's surprising what just adding a dark light fixture can do for a white/magnolia room. This navy number is everything I want, your eye is drawn up to both the bold outer shade and warm, golden inner shade, which gives such a cosy, homely light.
Geometric Terrarium £29.50 | I love adding metal and glass against dark backgrounds. Either add some soil and a plant for a makeshift terrarium or illuminate a dark corner with a candle or two, the geometric lines really attract your eye.
Blue & White Doorknob £3.50 | If you're up for a little crafty project, change some drawer handles from plastic-y and modern to chic and expensive-looking, to give the look of an entirely new piece of furniture. I love these blue and white ones from Marks.
Rose Gold Lantern £6 | For rose gold lighting on a smaller scale, this lantern is the perfect pick. Get some candles in there to give a warming glow.
Criss Cross Cushion £7.99 | Yellow Cushion £3.99 | Geometric Cushion £12.99
Aswell as a throw, a selection of contrasting cushions add some colour and vigour to a boring sofa. You can go properly outlandish if you like, but I like to bring it either pops of colour, textured fabric or patterns, I love the yellow one!
Waffle Blanket £50 | A throw can be all it takes to freshen up a tired sofa, or disguise ugly colours. I love getting a ridiculously large one that's textured and cuddly, like a faux fur or this waffle knit number.
Rose Gold Floor Lamp £120 | Bringing in extra light fittings can completely change the feel of your space, and what better way to add a little glam than a floor lamp decked out in rose gold for a warm, cosy glow. A bit of a statement piece, it'll get folks talking too.
I literally can't wait to get started personalising the new 'crib', and hopefully will have some more interiors-related posts for you along the way! Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend!
