Some decorating tips for the New Year!

By 2. januar 2014 Lighting, Livingroom, Patterns

I don’t know about you but by the time Christmas and New Year celebrations are finished I‘m bursting for a new clean start for the New Year!  And that means fluffing around moving the sofa, chairs and coffee tables round, trying new looks with the old furniture.

I’m always talking, at my interior courses, about how to make a room or space more interesting and how important it is to get away from the square-ness of a room no matter the size of the room. Easy peasy decorating tips and tricks will elevate your space in a jiffy!

1) Don’t leave walls bare –this just promotes the square-ness of the room. Adding focal points distract the eyes especially if the room happens to be small. So group together elements they give more power together than if they were alone!

2) Play with pattern and texture. It tantalizes and warms the room beyond belief. It’s the spice of the room.

3) Create different small zones in your room. This enhances and gives depth to any room whatever the size. The picture below is a great example of a small room with different zones. Makes for more balance and harmony in the room and more lived in! Perfect, yes?
