to nearly every room in the home. Some of them may seem obvious in
hindsight, but often we need to have these little things brought to the
forefront of our minds for them to take on the impetus needed to make
the required changes.
Invest in a Tesco’s (£45) new kettle to brighten up your kitchen and put some
oomph back into your cuppa! You will be charmed with your snazzy new
kettle and delighted at how much difference can be made by replacing the
old and time worn model currently adorning your counter.
For a whimsical touch of charm, why not try something like this little
bunny lamp available at Not on the High Street (£47) ? You can add a splash of much-needed colour and light to
gloomy corners with this cute and charming rabbit lamp and it is
suitable for use as a night light for younger people too.
Most of us have a home office of some sort, whether it is a hastily
cleared corner of the kitchen table between meals or a properly laid out
business space. Update your home office with a new, bijou but adequate,
office desk. This one is a Tyler office desk which I discovered from Argos
(£39.99 )has plenty of storage space for important
paperwork and the surface is ideal for either a PC or a laptop; and
maybe even a printer too. Having everything in one place, ready when you
need it will save you a lot of time and effort and you will soon wonder
how you ever managed without a compact desk tucked into a discreet
Brighten up every room in the home with a new pair of cheerful and
colourful curtains. Any room can be dramatically transformed with the
addition of new curtains and it is often an excellent way to quickly and
effortlessly refresh your dÈcor. Choose curtains that match your chosen
dÈcor colours and ensure that they are the right length too ñ too short
a curtain can make the room seem childlike and immature although this
is absolutely fine (and, in fact preferred) for childrenís bedrooms or
playrooms, whereas dining rooms and formal living rooms look splendid
with curtains that just barely graze the floor, or even puddle slightly
on the carpet. I personally have a thing for Yorkshire Linen’s curtains such as this Pencil pleat curtain (£39.99)
Add some old-school wonder to your living room or study with a
delightful such as this Fishpond’s globe (£88.37) of the world. Not only is it educational
and informative but it looks great, no matter where you set it down!
Often, with dÈcor, it is these little unnecessary touches that make the
difference between a pleasant room and a lovely one, so allow your
aesthetic impulses some freedom when planning your dÈcor.
Pamper your back and give your home an infusion of high-quality comfort
by investing in a comfortable occasional chair which can be shopped by Occa Home (£795.00). A really good
comfortable chair adds a certain something to any room, be it a bedroom,
study or living room, and it is worthwhile investing in a good quality
one for comfort and durability. Do not worry if the chair does not
exactly match your lounge suite as sometimes a hint of contrast actually
works to complete a dÈcor scheme.
Crafted from beautiful and durable oak, this Furniture UK bedside cupboard (£122) will make
the perfect addition to any bedroom. Suitable for all ages, there is
plenty of storage space inside it for precious mementoes and secrets,
while the top is ideal to keep your book, a lamp and some other
night-time odds and ends.
