Freshening up your home decor



Does anyone else often get a bit bored with the decor of their home?

I often sit and mentally re-decorate my house in my head. 
Or spend hours scrolling through Pinterest planning my dream home. I'm not on my own here, right?

But we don't all have the time and money to completely re-decorate, so I like to make little changes in a room to spruce it up a bit and make things feel a bit fresher. And I've started doing just that to a few rooms in my house.

I find adding a new colour to a room completely changes the look and feel of a room. 

This doesn't always have to be in the form of new wallpaper or paint. Just small changes can make the biggest difference. New cushions, a throw, a new rug, new curtains, blinds or accessories do the trick just fine!
I love mooching through the home section of department stores and choosing cute candles, little glass bottles, and random 'knick knacks' to brighten up my home.

When my ex partner left the family home 6 months ago, I really wanted to make some changes to the home decor. To make it my own.




I started with the lounge which is cream and grey. 

I've started adding some cute dusky pink accessories such as candles and accessories from Primark.  And I have my eye on some matching cushions and a soft pink throw too. The pink compliments the room beautifully and creates a more feminine feel. And being the only female in the house, I need a bit more girly-ness in my world!! :)





It was important to make my bedroom more ME! 
I have a small dressing room on the side and both are decorated in black and white, so accessorising with rose gold and copper pieces completely changes the room. Again, decorative bits and cushions from Primark and I like to use websites such as Coconut Lane and independent boutiques such as local gift store Narborough Hall for wall art and pieces like this mug I use for makeup brushes.

My teenage boy has an attic room.

Attic rooms can often be awkward shaped and quite difficult to decorate or change around, so I find just making little changes freshen the room up nicely. 



His window needs updating, so I've been looking at getting a new centre pivot roof window installed. VELUX have a few different options here. Then a quick spruce up with new accessories, bedding and a nice new blind and it'll be like a new room! 


What changes do you make to your home, to freshen things up?
