“My Top Tips On Giving Your Home A Refresh” – written by @Frockmeimfamous
Earlier this year, I moved into my first house with my boyfriend Ben. I’d never really had the opportunity to decorate before, so I didn’t really know what my ‘style’ was; or what it was I liked.
It’s been the most incredible journey over the last 10 months; learning about our love for interior and watching our house slowly turn into a home (very much with our stamp on it; it seems we like dark colours and cosy rooms!).
When LIKEtoKNOW.it asked me if I’d like to share some top tips on how we gave our home a refresh; I couldn’t wait to put this article together. I’m no interior-expert; but I DO absolutely love interiors, and feel that we’ve learnt so much; so I definitely have a tip or two to share!
Whether you’re moving into a new house and looking for some style tips; or your place is looking a little tired and in need of a refresh – here are my top three tips for updating your home:
Experiment with paint! It’s unbelievable how paint can absolutely transform a room! We’ve loved experimenting with paint since moving in, and have discovered that we’re really drawn towards dark colors – our home feels so cosy! A lot of people are scared of paint… but it’s just paint! Go for it and if you don’t like it, it’s not the end of the world – paint over it!
Accessorise! Okay, so since moving in I’ve discovered that I am OBSESSED with accessories – from cushions, to throws, candles, vases, mirrors – you name it, I’ve got it! I love accessorising a room and feel like the finishing touches are so important as to me, they really complete a room.
Up-cycle! Do you have a piece of furniture that you love but it’s not quite working anymore? Why not have a go at up-cycling it! Paint it a different color or tile it – have some fun with it and see how it turns out; you’ll be surprised at how different a piece can look with a little makeover!
