Transform the mood of a room with the flick of a switch. Lighting should not be an oversight, rather it will help create the ambiance you are after, and if it is a large room, it will help create zones. Simple touch designs can be dimmed or darkened with your fingertips, while swivel heads put the spotlight on your art or novel collection. Practical desk lamps can help you focus too, especially if you're working remotely or studying through the night. And a table lamp on your bedside table means you don’t have to get out of bed to turn the lights off. Pair with a floor lamp for an atmospheric feel to your home.
Accessories can add character whether you're redecorating or just putting the finishing touches to a room. Adding a nest of tables will give you more surface area for when you are entertaining and can stack neatly away when the party is over. Sideboards offer a practical solution to extra storage and surface area, and are also the perfect place to display all the photos in their picture frames.
Use key items to dress the room, turning it from an empty space to a place you’ll want to spend all your free time in. Control the natural light that you keep out or allow to flood in with wooden blinds. Inject some fun colour and texture into a neutral lounge by adding some quirky print cushions. They also add cosiness whether in the living room or bedroom. Adding a matching lamp shade to your ceiling light will tie the room together for a co-ordinated feel. Choose an elegant shade in velvet or a diamanté pendant for a luxury feel.
