A few years ago, white walls were all the rage when decorating a home. The thought process was that white paint acts as a blank canvas, while also being a ‘safe option’. While all this is true, there is no need to be afraid of using colour as a backdrop in your home.
There’s no better time than the new year to get a bit daring with colour. With most of the areas in our home remaining fairly neutral in design, introducing bright accent colours is a successful and affordable way to breathe new life into a space. But where do you start with introducing these tones so that they suit your home’s current design aesthetic and don’t cause too much visual disruption?
Sadly, not everyone is blessed with a large home to call their own. The good news though, is that even the smallest of spaces can still look amazing if you whip out a few of these nifty design tricks. These ideas are easy to implement and won’t break the budget either, which at this time of the year is a very welcome piece of news!
Outdoor entertaining is what summer is all about, but if you’ve got an exterior space that feels anything but ready for guests, you’ll need to give it some TLC in preparation for impending visitors. The good news; even a small space is ripe for a rejuvenation – and you don’t have to do a lot to give this zone some wow factor!
There’s nothing more exciting than getting stuck into some DIY projects as Christmas approaches. Making your own designer gems to display at home gives your space a unique point of interest and is sure to wow family and friends when they visit.
The nation is in a DIY frenzy at the moment and with good reason; transforming homewares, furniture or entire rooms is an addictive pastime that yields massive results. Giving a pocket of your home a new lease on life through DIY is both cost effective and fun, as well as being an activity you can get the whole family involved in.
As The Block alumni Chantelle and Steve know all too well, tackling projects around the home is no easy feat, especially if you’re stuck for inspiration or you’re unsure of where to start with particular projects.
