In the last year we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home, and for many of us this means our living spaces have been turned into workstations, home schools, gyms and more.
This shift has changed our relationships with our homes and how much our lives revolve around them, which makes the beginning of 2021 the perfect time to try some small styling changes to brighten up your space.
Here we share with you our top seven secrets to styling your home in 2021:
1. Declutter and reorganise
There’s no need to go full Marie-Kondo, but choosing to donate a few things that you don’t need or no longer suit your style can lighten up your home. You can also make your space feel more clutter-free by rethinking your organisational system.
Reorganise your existing storage so you have easy access to the things you use the most. This could be putting your out-of-season clothes in vacuum storage bags in the top of the cupboard or reorganising your pantry. A great way to add easy access storage to a room, is to get different sizes of stackable tubs or crates in colours and materials that suit your style.
If you, or someone in your household, are always losing small important things like glasses, jewellery or hairbands then there are also small, stylish storage options that look great on your counter or nightstand and will help keep the clutter sorted. Our favourites include: a personalised Tasmanian oak scrunchie stand, personalised Tasmanian oak glasses stand or an acrylic personalised jewellery holder.
2. Lighten it up
Change your bulbs to a warm or cooler tone to create a softer or crisper effect. Experiment with smart bulbs to use different lighting effects, as well as schedule and control your lights remotely. You could also try layering your lighting at different heights such as with table and floor lamps to create a nice ambiance.
3. Add greenery
Adding some indoor plants to your home is both good for your health, and a great and increasingly popular way to decorate. Indoor plants also make great gifts for friends and family, there’s no need to wrap them and you can even add a personalised engraved acrylic planter stick to make it extra special.
4. Soften up the space
Chosen well, decorative items such as cushions, rugs, vases and candles can uplift and soften a room and make it feel welcoming. You can also add a personal touch by opting for customised decorations such as engraved marble coasters, an engraved chalkboard kitchen sign with wooden stand, or an engraved wood wick soy candle.
5. Decorate blank walls
Putting up a piece of art or some family photos on a blank wall is an easy way to update and style your home. You could get creative and make your own artwork, such as at a local wine and paint class, or for something else unique there are personalised options such as a family photo print or a laser cut bamboo name plaque.
6. Reuse and restyle what you’ve got
Being waste conscious is becoming increasingly popular and when it comes to styling and decorating homes many are choosing to refinish and adapt their existing furniture or to buy second-hand pieces. Why not try updating some of the pieces you already have to fit with your vision?
7. Maximise your outdoor space
Whether you have a backyard or a small balcony or patio area, give some attention to your outdoor area to maximise the space and make it somewhere you can enjoy spending time – no matter what the size or season.
