You kick off your shoes, sling off your coat and drop down your handbag; what a long day at work it has been and you are over the moon to be home. It is your stylish sanctuary where you can switch of from a chaotic world, escape with a book and devour a home cooked meal. Lately you have been searching for inspiration to give your home a chic edge and although you love your humble abode it might be time to crank up the elegance a little. Use a hint of creativity, a splash of color and a sprinkle of style to upgrade your house into a dazzling dwelling.
The reason you might not be getting enough sleep at night is often due to your bedroom environment. Say goodbye to the abundance of electronics and the scattered clutter which takes over your floor space. Invest in some beautiful new bedroom furniture to keep your bits and bobs neat and tidy. Choose a sleek and stylish design which suits your personality and pack away your disordered belongings into your new drawers, wardrobe or dressing table. Make sure you’re sleeping in comfy and cosy sheets too; choose light breathable fabrics to make sure you are getting a blissful night’s sleep.
There is nothing more comforting than adding personal touches to certain spaces in your home. Put together a lively and bright collage of your best friends during holidays and position it in your hustling and bustling kitchen space. Embellish a simple picture frame with special moments with you and your loved ones to place on the window sill in your bedroom. Whatever makes you smile be sure to add a personal touch to the places you enjoy the most.
Being blinded by uncomfortably striking lighting is not something we want in our elegant home. Change up your lighting style and invest in some soothing scented candles for when you wind down in the evenings. Smells such as Jasmine, Lavender and Mandarin are the most relaxing aromas you can get. Invest in some dimmer switches so you can adjust your lighting according to your mood and give yourself the flexibility to change it up whenever you need to.
The décor in your home can often add that final touch of magic. Whether it is an ornate cushion, a fabulous vase or an eye catching ornament, make sure you take the time to carefully select the decorations that will work in your home. If you generally have neutral tones in your living area you might want a colored blanket or cushion to add a burst of vibrancy. Or perhaps your understated bathroom needs a constant supply of fresh flowers to create a homely ambiance. Whatever makes each room feel complete, be sure to add it in to complement the rest of your home interior.
Make your home an uplifting and tranquil place to unwind after a tiring week. Sleep in an organized bedroom, admire your favourite pictures and soothe yourself with a calm scented candle.
