Careful planning allows you to add character and cosiness to your space and keeps you on track budget wise. 1REFRESH YOUR WALL PAINT If you're happy with the bones of your home but you've grown tired of your colour scheme think about a fresh coat of paint for your walls, trims and doors. You'll be surprised how much impact that has on your mood. You may fall in love with your home all over again! New paint for the front of the house also spruces things up and adds to the street appeal. 2CHANGE THE SMALL ACCENTS You would be surprised how much impact the smaller elements in a room have on the room as a whole. Think about updating the scatter cushions on your sofa, installing new curtains or even purchasing new lamp shades for floor lamps and table lamps. Add some new decorative items such as trays for your coffee table, items or a new colourful vase for your shelf. 3REASSESS YOUR COLOURS Has your home fallen into a drab colourless space? Then it's time to spruce it up and make it feel cosier, and spruce up your own mood. Colour has profound effects on us, so take the change in seasons as the opportunity to reassess a colour palette for your living or bedroom space. Opt for 3-5 new colours to work with the larger neutral pieces in the space like sofas and dining tables. These don’t need to be five completely different colours, you could choose to use navy blue as your statement colour and then three varying blue tones to tie back in.
