Maximise Light

Rearrange your furnishings so that the spots you want illuminated bask in that summer sunshine. Mirrors are a wonder in this department, giving the illusion of more space and sunlight, especially in smaller rooms.

Statement Furniture

If you love ‘scandi’ design you know that decluttering an area can be meditative. But be careful, too minimalistic may make your room lose character.

Maybe not like the above example though. To bring some oomph back into your spaces, try out a piece of statement furniture. It could be an ottoman, or even a floor standing lamp in an eye-catching shade or design.

Scents

With that fresh summer breeze rolling through, adding diffusers or incense can really freshen up a room. Most diffusers are quite vogue in stores & don’t detract from a room’s style. If you have wooden furniture in your living room, now would be the time to give them some TLC. Furniture oil & varnish give off a wonderful natural smell once cured so getting two birds with one stone could be for you.

Brighten the Curtains

If your living room has curtains, a fresh style of curtains or rails could spice up your room. Brighter palettes can make the room feel bigger & airy.

Rearrange Your Staples

Is your living room full of great fixtures, books, & trinkets? A creative way of rearranging can breathe new life into assortments. It also gives you the opportunity to give them all a good dusting and cleaning! You could try colour coding your books, or arranging your trinkets in highlighted spaces.
