As summer comes in to full swing it’s the perfect time to find some small projects to elevate your interior design and add a little bit of a luxury to your surroundings- without having to splash out or completely remodel.
The best part of owning your own home is having the creative freedom to decorate and design your home to fit your lifestyle and aesthetic. Here are a few ways that I have managed to add a little bit of luxe to my home from changing some of the hardware and soft furnishings to adding some stunning floral arrangements and blooms.
Think Soft Furnishings
One of the first things you notice with any room is always the soft furnishings- from throws, cushions and blankets to rugs and curtains, these practical helpers can make or break a room. As soon as you have determined your colour scheme and room layout, choose some fabrics and textiles that are complimentary to your room. By using receding colours, you can make the room appear larger making it look that little bit more opulent.
Switch it up
Although you might be set in the way of never changing light switches or plug sockets, but these home essentials truly make a huge difference in the appearance of your home. Traditional plain white plug sockets, although not catastrophic does not create the same sense of luxury that would be created from say a modern chrome or black hardware. These sockets are easy to fit and can be done very inexpensively in under an hour so make the perfect little home improvement project.
Heat it up
No home is every complete without radiators- this basic amenity is an essential in any home especially in colder climates such as the United Kingdom. However, these sometimes do not quite bring the elements of the come together and in fact can at times make the home appear less elegant and regal. By changing radiators, your colour schemes can be matched and you home can easily be made appear more modern. If you want your home to appear more contemporary and luxe, why not try installing some stunning black designer radiators, such as these ones available at Trade Radiators.
Fresh and Floral
Although this last one may take a little bit of memory and effort, it truly elevates any room and oozes luxury. Fresh flowers can tie together your colour scheme and with the stunning colours and arrangements available, can make the room season appropriate. For example, if you want to make your home more summery, why not place a stunning arrangement of floral blooms such as sunflowers, peonies and roses or if you want some timeless elegance, why not purchase an arrangement of stunning white lilies?
