Renew, Refresh, Recreate and Enjoy!


Most people go through a stage every now and then when they feel the need to start afresh at home. There is endless inspiration on TV and in magazines, and I personally would love to redo my own home each month in a completely new style. While redecorating on a monthly basis isn’t realistic, you don’t have to invest in expensive renovations to make a significant difference to your home.

Recreating your room could be as simple as moving things around. Try orientating your furniture in a different way, facing the fire in winter and the deck in summer, or experiment with the styling of your bookshelf or sideboard, bringing new treasures to the forefront. You can create a fresh new look with the things you already have. Sometimes a healthy declutter, or some simple editing, is all that is needed to make a huge difference. Alternatively, there is no easier way to refresh a room, renew a lounge suite or recreate a bed setting than with cushions. Cushions provide an instant cost-effective way to play, to design, and to present your personality. Mix patterns, fabrics, sizes and shapes to add a textured, layered look to your home.

For those wanting to invest a little more in their redecorating, designing your own bespoke bedware and tableware is a great option. Refresh your bedroom with a gorgeous new bedspread, or add a touch of luxury with a stunning bedhead. Alternatively, recreate your dining setting by investing in some new chair covers or a new squab for your window seat. There are so many stunning fabrics available and so many ways you can embrace them in your home. Finally, custom-made window treatments may be more expensive but well-fitting curtains and blinds bring so much more than privacy and insulation. They provide opportunities to introduce colour, mood, warmth, and even art to your home. Window furnishings will completely transform your room without the need for building permits or the price-tag of complex renovations.
