Create The Illusion

It's possible to give the impression that you've hauled over a room and done a spot or re-decorating when in actual fact all you have done is added some well placed accessories.

Think large prints, fresh flowers on the mantel, lights around a large mirror, a modern or vintage rug in the centre of the room....the list goes on.

It's always best to come up with some sort of theme before you begin adding accessories or else you're in danger of getting carried away and ending up with lots of things but no real design.

A Good Start

A modern rug, with plenty of colour is a great way to start. Just adding this to a room, even if you do nothing else, well make a world of difference.

Fresh Flowers Make A Room

It's not just a girl thing...fresh flowers make any room brighter and the fragrance, if subtle adds to the ambience.

Try and create a certain mood. Think about exactly how you want to feel and how you want guests to feel when they walk into the room.

Think Texture

Create some difference by adding a throw or some super large cushions. You don't have to cover the sofa entirely with a large throw, simply drape it over the arm or over the back to create a little bit of original style. Look how adding some simple accessories can add lots of interest to a room. It's all about thinking outside of the box!
