As we move into 2017, now is the time to breathe new life back into the home.
Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishings store, The Home Company has some great ideas on how to brighten up a dull start.
Linda Lee, the lifestyle store’s manager said: “You don’t have to change everything at once. It can be easy to get carried away, but small changes can make a huge difference.”
If you don’t want to splash out on anything too expensive, start with simple accessories which can transform a living space. Make a bold statement with cushions in fashionable shades such as bright orange, yellow or vivid blue with prices from £9.95 to £29. If you want a new focal point in a room, a beautiful piece of artwork can add real ‘wow’ factor. Try floral prints or striking abstract images.
A small new item of furniture can also change the dynamic of a room, like a stylish coffee table. The Calem at £149, with modern chrome legs and a clear glass top and shelf can inject real energy; or the Jual Living at £299, combining real wood veneer with black glass to give a contemporary look.
Wakeup a dark corner by adding a stylish wire weave lamp featuring twinkling fairy lights for instant glitz, small £49 or medium £59.
If it’s time to invest go for the luxurious Studio Hudson sofa; or a piece from the stunning Dales collection – a great choice as there are both plain and patterned fabrics to give a great combination of style, comfort and value for money.
Said Linda: “As we make resolutions and fresh starts in 2017, this is the perfect time of year to look at revitalising the home. Even a small change can really transform a room.”
