The Source Of Inspiration

This entry was posted on 10th December 2010

Have you ever watched those home makeover programmes or flicked through interior decor magazines wishing that your home resembled something even half as gorgeous? Well why not make it so? There are many ways you can reinvent your house, and yes I know we are in the middle of a recession, but small changes really can change the appearance and ambiance of a room. Let there be light - Firstly, the mood of a room can be changed, just by adding a little light. Whether it’s blocking out street lighting from the outside via dark wood blinds or adding a large centrepiece lamp to your coffee table, either way a little light can go a long way. Alternatively you could embrace the winter nights, wrap yourself up in that ohh so cosy faux fur throw, light some candles and just watch the mood change in front of your very eyes! Window dressing - Whether it can be seen from the outside-in or the inside-out, dressing your window can really change the shape and appearance of a dull room. Whether you chose to embrace colour or eliminate texture is up to you. If its colour you choose to go for then why not go with something that stands out rather than blends in, this will really make a real impact on a room and you will get that desired change that you are after. For example, if your room is decorated with a palette of beiges, browns and earthy greens, why not dress your window with a gorgeously seductive yet classically demure Satin Rum Venetian blind. On the other hand, if you prefer textures then why not go with a beautifully textured Roller blind . The Controliss Textura Golden Roller blind is my favourite pick for the winter months. It is simple yet stunningly classy. Illumination - Finally, the most cost efficient and easy way to change the appearance of a room is to add a mirror. Whether it be a dramatically framed, classically cut mirror or a strange shaped modern mirror, it really will change your chosen room. You see, the thing with mirrors is that they make a space appear bigger than it actually is, changing your room in an instant. So, there you have it, small changes really can make a big difference!
