We asked Freedom Interior Decorator Natasha Lindsay for her top tips on easy and affordable ways for you to freshen up your home.
- Add some luxe to your decor
Shiny accents can make any interior look incredibly luxe. Whether it’s sparkly silver, glitzy gold, brazen brass or beaten copper, precious metals add drama to your décor! Find ways to incorporate this into your space, for example with a golden bowl or a vessel on your wooden coffee table, a beautiful candle holder or an intricate brass wall piece.
- Let your creativity shine
This is not only fun but also a great way to involve the whole family. Get crafty with DIY to create a bespoke look with art, textiles and decorations. Join a tapestry, coil weaving or ceramics workshop – craft revival is in the air!
- Update your lighting
This is the secret to many houses that go on the market that need an instant facelift. Changing a light fixture or adding extra light to different corners of the room can drastically modify a space. Think cage lights, exposed bulbs, geometric woven timbers. Updating your lighting is one of the fastest, easiest and most savvy ways to refresh the look of your interiors. Try an industrial ceiling pendant to hang over your kitchen island, a statement table lamp or simply switch up your light globes with the Edison Filament Globe to create a vintage sensibility.
- Go neutral
Stick to the classics and surrender to the Zen of a neutral palette. Keep your look fresh and current with honest natural materials in their raw state. Neutral hues, textured elements, sea grass, linen, leather, fur throws, cable knits, soy candles… Balance out your neutral room with a variety of shades, materials and patterns. Try some scatter cushions, our natural throw, the Kite Vessel vase or even a screen to break up an open space.
- Channel Mother Nature
From smell, sight and touch, there are many ways that nature can enhance the interior of your house. Whether it’s faux or fresh, get fond of your fronds! Oversized monstera or banana leaves add life to any table, sideboard or mantle. Create a terrarium for the coffee table in an oversized mason jar bursting with succulents. Channelling Mother Nature does not have to be restricted to plants but can also include hues of colour or textures. Try giving your home an earthier feel with a vase of flowers, wooden picture frames or even an ottoman.
