Transforming your home on a budget
Expert interior design tips for a post-Christmas refresh
The post-Christmas period often leaves us with uninspiring, dimly lit spaces, void of the festive cheer that recently filled our homes. As the decorations come down, a sense of emptiness seeps in, urging us to seek a fresher interior. With budget constraints in mind, our designers share invaluable tips on how to breathe new life into your home without breaking the bank.

Mix things up
A cost-effective and bold strategy is to shake things up. Clear your surfaces of all decorations to provide a fresh canvas to start again. Not only does this provide an opportunity to declutter, it also allows you to identify and fill any gap in your décor. Introduce vibrancy with carefully chosen artwork. You could explore affordable prints online at @Kingandmcgaw to add a touch of personality to your space.

Embrace the power of paint
Transforming a room doesn’t always require a hefty budget. Consider a fresh coat of paint to bring a breath of fresh air to your interiors. While we recommend professional assistance, even the average DIY enthusiast can get involved in a project with a few essential tools. Seize the opportunity to be bold and adventurous with your colour choices. Step out of your comfort zone and try the colour you’ve always admired but never dared to use. For those craving a Venetian plaster aesthetic on a budget, explore lime wash paints such as those from @bauwerkcolour. These paints not only deliver a cost-effective way to achieve a stylish finish but also come with online tutorials for easy follow-along instructions.

Greenery takes centre stage
With the departure of Christmas trees and festive foliage, consider welcoming natural beauty into your home. Beyond their psychological benefits, plants add great interest to your interiors. If you lack green fingers fear not; there are low-maintenance options available. Alternatively, explore the world of faux plants and flowers, where brands like @Haox and @fakeitflowers offer realistic alternatives
