5 tips to turn your house into a home

Creating a space to call your own. We all like to step into a space that we've made. It doesn't matter if everything is in varying shades of beige, bursting with fluro colours or a space somewhere in between – as long as it's how we like it. There are many ways to transform your house into the paradise you envision and regardless of your style, this is your opportunity to show off a little personality... and also impress all those fancy folks you have round for wine and cheese... or pizza and Netflix.

Ready to get started? Here are our, 5 tips to turn your house into a home.

 

1. Cushions & Throws

Now we aren't trying to be bias, but one of the easiest ways to incorporate more colour and give any room that extra lift, is with a few cushions and throws. They are a comfortable and casual way to style any space. Easy to change out for different seasons or change to reflect your individual style. Its all about showing off your personality.

2. Pots & Plants

We love indoor plants at home! A well placed plant or two can do wonders, for a home. Its a simple way of adding a refreshing burst of life to any space. With a HUGE selection of pots out there, finding the one that matches your interior isn't as hard as it sounds.

3. Artwork & Photography

Be it a large feature piece or a collection of your favourite prints - artworks can really bring colour and life to a home. We are big fans of large art, leaning against walls (something all renters can understand). It’s an affordable feature piece which can be moved around your home.

4. Lighting & Accessories

As much as good lighting can make the difference and create the perfect mood for your home, the same can also be said for those little extras we scatter about the place. Think table lamps, scented candles, display bowls, mirrors and vases. It's remarkable what fresh flowers in any room can do to lift the mood!

5. Storage & Organisation

The secret to owning your space and maximising your storage opportunities is finding the balance between form and function. Make the most of storage baskets - stylish and functional! Book shelves and coffee tables are also great for showing off all your knick-knacks.
