Decorating Tips

Last week Monday I shared some tips on how to update your space without changing the entire room or breaking the bank, today's tips can also be achieved on a small budget if required. Keep in mind that creativity is key and remember there is no rule to say that you cannot take a bed bench from the bedroom and substitute it for seating in the dining room so long as the proportions are correct. 

1. Mix up seating
Substitute traditional dining room seating with mix matched chairs or add a banquette or bench. 

2. Pile on the pillows 
Don't be afraid to use too many pillows. For a more formal look use even numbers and keep the colour scheme simple and the prints to a minimum. If you are looking for a little more fun mix it up with colour, texture, size and prints and don't be afraid to use odd numbers.

3. Ditch your coffee table
Don't restrict yourself to a traditional coffee table, mix it up with a vintage trunk or ottomans. 

Stay tuned on the blog for more decorating tips next week. Happy Monday and lots of love ***
