A visually pleasing space that comes together oh-so nicely doesn’t always have to be the result of a clever (and expensive) interior designer. Sometimes it just takes a small touch here and there to beautifully pull that living room / bedroom / hallway / whatever space together, whether it’s a new rug, a side table, or just moving the vase with the beautiful flowers from here to there. 

Let’s scope out some ideas that you can do yourself!

1. A decent-sized mirror, as it adds visual space plus helps reflect lighting.

2. Vases with plants and flowers – they add freshness, scent and colours!

3. Floating shelves, but try and be creative in terms of shapes and colours.

4. A seating spot, like this upholstered bench: functional and fabulous, in our opinion!

5. A scatter cushion (or 2, or 3) on a bed, chair or sofa. And don’t forget complementing colours and patterns.

6. A beautiful rug to neatly anchor the room.

7. Don’t underestimate the importance of a little side table in-between chairs.

8. Who says you can’t add a few potted plants to your garden? Let’s enhance that freshness factor!

9. Your own unique touch, like these vintage doors that became an exceptional headboard.

10. Some scented candles – perfect for creating an elegant ambience.

11. An extra towel railing in the bathroom never hurts – anything to keep the clutter at bay.
