You can liven up your home with small things

It is a shame if you have flowers in your home garden and are not making use of them. An organic element in a room will help it come alive. You don’t have to spend a lot of money at the florist.

SOMETIMES it is the little that matter even in décor. There are some ways to brighten up your home without spending so much money.

Cut flowers from your garden
It is a shame if you have flowers in your home garden and are not making use of them. An organic element in a room will help it come alive. You don’t have to spend a lot of money at the florist. Just take a pair of scissors out into your garden, clip a few branches or even just a single stem, and place in a vase. This way you would have added something interesting in your garden without spending a cent.

Add a throw
A pretty throw draped over a bench, sofa, or the back of a chair, can be an instant update, adding both colour and texture. It is also a simple way to relax a room, creating an inviting spot to curl up to read a book or take a nap.

Make use of the fireplace
I have seen many homes with fireplaces that they never use. The fireplace can define your entire room, if you add a pile of neatly arranged firewood. This will help fill out the entire room without you realising it.

Stack up on white towels
Keep a stack of white towels in the bathroom. The monochromatic colour scheme is aesthetically soothing, so the space will look crisp, fresh, and spa-like. Plus, they are a cinch to clean since you can always bleach them.

Accessorise your coffee table
A large coffee table can become a huge block of dark wood that weighs down a room. Try taking a few beautiful art books down off the shelf and using them to break up the table’s surface. The room will feel lighter and brighter and you will enjoy reading your books more.

Display your favourite piece

Instead of keeping your beautiful things tucked away in cabinets and closets, open up a door and take out that beautiful vase, tray or bowl. Showcase it on a dining table or a console – anywhere that you can basically appreciate it. You don’t have to use them for anything; the act of display is enough to turn a boring room into a vibrant one.
